    I've wanted Mr. Burns' Casino for a long time, but as someone who likes to move stuff around in my town a lot, the best thing about this update is easily that you can now select an entire area and move it without having to move every individual piece.

    Complete all the tasks in the Casino quest line until you unlock it. If you're fairly new to the game (???), it's possible you don't have all the characters you need to do that yet. Just complete as many character-related quests as you can, giving priority to any related to the casino.

    Thank you! Go right ahead!
    (Bonus! Buying all those trees/flowers/benches/lamp posts/trashcans earns tonnes of XP.)

    By the way, if anybody else wants to add me I'm "sparkeydavis" in Tapped Out as well. I could use some more friends

    I tried to make my town as canon as possible. Blew up the town a few months back and rebuilt, searching up every building on the wiki before placing it. Then it got frustrating when a lot was places so some areas are unfinishe and look empty cause I just stopped playing again. Getting back into it tho. Also I'll add you Davis I'm Christophe352

    Thanks! I added you!
    I nuked my town a few months ago as well. Springfield is too inconsistent to make it canon for me, though. I just tried to make it kind of sensible.

    Amongst other things, Platinum Scratch Rs have arrived. They cost 12.99 AUD. How much do they cost in USD? I'm kind of tempted by the 1000 donut jackpot, but I still don't suspect these are great value for money.

    Crunching the numbers quickly, assuming odds from http://simpsonstappedout.wikia.com/wiki/Scratch-R are correct (and assuming I've calculated correctly), you are expected to win 148.67 donuts per Scratch R. That means that, at least in AUD, they're better value per donut up to the store full of 900 donuts which costs $79.99 (11.44 donuts per dollar vs 11.25).

    I also believe that I've tempted fate and pushed my luck far too much after winning the 100 donut jackpot on the Golden Scratch R on my second or third attempt. No amount of donuts besides the jackpot really interests me for that price. I could always cheat and get free donuts off reddit if I was desperate. I wouldn't mind requesting the stupid glass depot and railyard that would allow me to craft more monorail pieces if nothing else.

    I can tell you it's £5.99 GBP - got better things to spend that amount on. Like KFC's 9 piece bucket on a Tuesday. Or a nice pint of Beavertown Gamma Ray APA!

    The fruit machines give you too many wins, which may sound like a strange complaint. Can only imagine if real fruit machines were as generous.

    That happened to me, too. I started a new game and sent a friend request to my old game, but it wasn't appearing in my old game. So I tried sending one from my old game to my new game, and it said that. It eventually went through, though.

    Speaking of glitches, has anyone else had a problem with closing those pop-up box things (the boxes that pop up when you click on a building or a character, etc)? Lately, it's been much harder to close them than it used to be, so I often have to press the "back" button on my phone or tablet to exit them. I'm not having any trouble clicking on anything else.

    so, what are you guys' gambling strategies for this? i've seen a lot of people online claim that Moe's pays out better than Cletus', but i have found the opposite to be true. Moe's pays something more often, which i think fools people into thinking they're winning more. but i've been collecting data for the past few days and i think i have enough to state that picking 7 every time at Cletus' will net you more chips than playing at Moe's. i'm averaging about 105 chips/roll picking 7s and only 92/spin at Moe's. i'm trying to figure out if 7 is the best play or if Cletus' is simply better all around than Moe's, but unfortunately it would take a shitload of tokens to truly suss out the average reward for every number in the dice game. i have started picking 5 instead of 7 and, while i don't have enough data to feel comfrotable with the results yet, i have so far found it to be about on par with picking 7

    anyone else have any thoughts? i read an entry about it on tstoaddicts, but they had calculated the odds of real-life dice rolls, which i'm positive is not accurate here (you can tell by watching which numbers come up a lot when you pick one number, yet never come up when you pick another). in other words, the game is rigged, but it's rigged in the players favor so no complaints from me

    I've found that the 2 and 12 rolls at Cletus happen far more often than they seem to imply. I've been doing that a lot.
    UP AND ATOM!

    Sadly, I missed out on a chance to get Magic Act Milhouse. Damn low levels.

    Cletus' game is kind of tedious (and pretty complicated) to play and it takes too much time for similar gains as Moe's game.
    So yeah, I still play Moe's game far more.

    The first act prices were pretty cool. I'm happy with my Magical Milhouse, I love giving him that failed cat trick task. The second act prives are not as good (while I hate the episode it comes from, I want that Loch Ness Monster in my town).

    Also, is the Redwood event still going on ? I'm only 5 levels from unlocking it and I want a big tree in my town too.

    i mean, do whatever you want, but i'm telling you that picking 7 every single time at Cletus' will net you more than 10 extra chips per token, on average. that's not insignificant. not to even mention that Cletus' tends to be all or nothing (as opposed to "winning" like 30 or 40 chips most spins at Moes) which means you get more courtesy chips which can be traded in for real chips. i'm serious, the more i try different scenarios and track the numbers, the more it supports my initial theory: play Cletus every time and pick 7 every time

    Quote Originally Posted by Captain Squid View Post

    i finished my data gathering picking 5 every time at Cletus' and found that, while it's still better than playing Moe's, it's not as good as picking 7. i'm trying 2 now to see what the extreme gets me, but i'm almost positive at this point that playing Cletus and picking 7 every time is the best bet.



    and sorry if i'm nerding out too much about this, but a big part of my job is collecting data and drawing conclusions from it so it sort of just comes naturally to me

    the redwood is not really an event, in that it will never end (until you complete it). you can take as long as you want with it without worrying

    I quickly crunched the numbers myself re: Cletus's dice roll game (assuming fair dice) and got 5 or 9 as the ideal one to roll. Though whenever I play 5, it always gives me 6, 8, and 10 as the losing combination, so it's pretty likely they're not fair dice rolls.

    2 or 12 - 41.7 (chips per token)
    3 or 11 - 55.7
    4 or 10 - 61.7
    5 or 9 - 66.6
    6 or 8 - 60.6
    7 - 52.2

    I can't actually find the Gaming Moe's stats anywhere online, so I dunno how the EV is on that compared to the dice. I've just been splitting between the two. I'm sure neither is that significantly better in payouts anyway.

    *I checked the tstoaddicts odds and mine are off because I accounted for the 10 "tokens" you get for each loss.
