ADDICTS ANNOUNCEMENTS

Please be aware this post is a work in progress as I’m pulling this event from my own game as Bunny has now left the Addicts site which leaves us no access to her test game data and information I’m afraid. I am trying to get TinyCo to consider allowing me to have a similar test game,  but until they say yes or no I’ll do my best to pull what I can as fast as I can. And I know there are Addicts among you that will share your findings. So let’s just get on with things the best we can and hopefully we get lucky with TinyCo letting me be their new FGQFS guinea pig so this site can live on.

CASINO WORKERS

You will trigger them and learn about them at Part 1 of the main Questline Viva Las Vegas. You will find them wandering your sidewalks and you will need to use a combination of a Character and an item tasks to clear them. But don’t fuss on these just now as you not be able to work on these until after you unlock Impersonator Peter but clearing them is pretty much the same formulae used for Zombies etc in the last event.

Basically to clear them Tap on a Casino Worker that’s wandering  around, this will bring up details of the Character-Item combination needed to clear them, it will also show you the rewards.

Simply tap on SELECT to choose the Character and put them on task to clear the Casino Worker. But as you can see you can’t do anything until you unlock Impersonator Peter.

Characters Used:
Impersonator Peter

And of course you need an item, in the case of clearing Casino Workers this is 1x Cigarettes.

Cigarettes (Always): Win at Roulette

So basically you’ll need Impersonator Peter and 1x Cigarettes to get clearing Casino Workers now.

Task Time: Instant

Chance Payout:
+6 Silver Reward Cards  (Always)
+1 Magic Saw (Chance)

Spawn: A few times a day up to a MAX of 8 at a time on your game play screen


TOURISTS

You will trigger them and learn about them at Part 1 of the main Questline Viva Las Vegas.  You will find them wandering your sidewalks and you will need to use a Character task to clear them.

Tap on a Tourist wandering around to bring up the Payout and Character needed, you need either Lois or Circus Joe.

Simply tap on SELECT to choose the Character. Please note you can also put the Characters on the tasks directly from their profiles.

Characters Used:
Lois
Circus Joe

Task Time: 4hrs.

Chance Payout:
+2 Silver Roulette Tokens (Always)
+1 Rhinestones (Chance)


ROULETTE

Roulette is where you gamble away your life away, ok, maybe that’s being a bit over dramatic, it’s actually where you gamble your Silver Roulette Tokens. To play Roulette you can either tap on the Lucky Clam in the event area or the Roulette Icon shown above.

This will bring you up the Roulette choices, at the moment you can on,y select the first one, the Silver Roulette, tap it and it  will bring you up the Roulette Screen.

To place a bet you’ll need 2 Silver Reward Tokens. You’ll get these from clearing Tourists, Wagering Whale, Huge Slot Machine Once you have 2 Silver Roulette Tokens, it’s time to choose your colour, Red, Black or Green. Obviously the odds on landing on Green will be much lower than Black or Red. But remember just like real Roulette this is a game of chance.

Once you’ve placed your bet, tap Place Bet  and cross your fingers you win.  And that’s it, simple as that. I’m going be honest the random nature of this could cause issues with progression, I’ve not been very lucky in my tries, winning on Red only once from 4 tries so far. But we’ll need see how it goes over the next few days before we rush to judgement.

The rewards cry depending on colour you bet on and whether you win or lose.

If you win betting on Red or Black the Payout is:
+1 Cape (Always)
+1 Cigarette (Always)
+1 Autograph (Always)
+4 Silver Reward Cards (Always)

If you win betting on Green the Payout is:
+5 Cape (Always)
+5 Cigarette (Always)
+5 Autograph (Always)
+20 Silver Reward Cards (Always)

If you lose the payout is:
+1 Silver Reward Card (Always)

So go spin that wheel, good luck and don’t forget to boast in the comments if you win on Green.


There you have the overall basics to get you started through the first week of the New Event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  1. The Roulette is making me crazy. Playing the idea of averages, I decided to always bet on black like I was Wesley Snipes. So far, I am 2 for 15 (conservatively, of course. I know I guessed correctly twice.) I just now was able to buy the fountain.

  2. Just a quick question but are you only able to bet on one colour, say if you collected 4 silver roulette tokens could you place 2 bets like you could in real roulette and cover both black and red.

    • Going a little better than I expected. Helps that you get 6 silver reward tickets everytime you have Impersonator Peter clear a casino worker. Of course, it still comes down to having decent luck cuz you need cigarettes to do that and to get those you’ve gotta win at roulette. Guess I’ve been doing ok so far, hope I didn’t jinx myself, Lol. Good luck fellow addicts

  5. First time bet green and won..woo hoo! Second time bet black and won..woo hoo! Third time red….lost. Fourth time green…lost. Hitting green the first time out helped me get the first three items from the lucky fountain but I’m sure it’ll be an uphill battle for the rest of this phase. The fourth item Talking Cricket Pawn requires 38 silver rewards cards!!!! With one silver card after every losing spin – well you do the math.

  8. Ok, I have a genuine question here: Why is this even a month-long event?
    I would understand if it’s one of those week-long events, where the event is short and you get it or you don’t and there’s not much loss.
    But we have an event that’s literally 100% P2P (you can’t argue this no matter what you say), and an event that’s 100% RNG oriented. On the RNG note, I get that technically the whole game is based on RNG since it’s all drops and chances, but this event is completely RNG because the mechanic will 100% dictate whether you actually progress in the event or not (It’s actually statistically feasible to never complete Phase 1 of this event by the time it ends).
    It’s a constant argument that the F2P Vs. P2P model is terrible, and mobile game developers have always had a back and forth with this. But this event represents everything that a large majority of people actually legitimately despises, and I just wonder why this event was even allowed to go through.
    I get that it’s Vegas oriented so the gambling makes sense, but if we go deeper into Vegas-Style event, then that means we will literally be at a huge loss overall since generally at casinos you never win (you win the first time, but the addiction pulls you in to create a huge loss).

    Like

    • The good news is the event is actually only 3 weeks…. But it will feel longer…. And P2P may not even help much here due to the game mechanics, I have both premium items, bought out Impersonatir Peter and I’m still not that far on

      Like

      • Thematically it makes sense to me, but that doesn’t mean it makes for a good event. Complete RNG-oriented event is literally the bane of any player ever, since there’s no way to actually tip the scales in your favor.

        At this point I’ve resigned to the notion that I normally have with the typical week-long events: If I get it, I get it. If I don’t, I don’t (no warrants for using clams). I’m just looking forward to the Christmas event and hope it’s not as insanely terrible as it was last year, possibly topping off as the worst event.

        Like

        • To tack onto the RNG factor and the scales (since you can’t edit comments here), while P2P may not seem like it’s incredibly helpful, it gives a sort-of advantage.

          More chances at the roulette would technically mean more chances at winning. Theoretically, the ratio of wins to losses would be decreased.

          Example: (for simplistic purposes, I’m only counting the three colors and not the whole board)
          A F2P player would have a 1:3 chance of winning at a 4 hour rate (waiting on Lois without rushing her action)
          A P2P player would actually have a 1:2.5 chance of winning at a 4 hour wait (using both premium Joe’s costume, and Lois).
          I would have said 1:2 for P2P, but mathematically it wouldn’t be a 50/50 chance since you still contend with 3 spots to land on, and this isn’t a real casino so the odds still rely on RNG rather than being house-rigged. If anything, the P2P chance of winning would actually be a little bit higher than 2.5 (maybe something like 2.75 or even 2.83).

          Basically, a P2P player can use clams to get more chances at the roulette, and that would technically increase their odds of winning as they have more chances to go within a 4-hour time span. However, the increase in odds is still quite miniscule compared to F2P and may not even make a major mathematical difference.

        Like

      • I’m already skipping it completely.

        Using math, it’s actually very likely that a majority of players (at least 60%) will not progress past Phase 2 of the entire event, at the very most. Considering that you literally can’t progress in the event without the rewards from the wheel.

        At this point, just log in to get the daily friend clams, 7 clams from videos, and using actions on characters that aren’t max level. The event isn’t worth it, and this actually tops off as ‘The Worst Event Ever Created’, next to the Mob event and the last Christmas Event (that itself wasn’t bad, but a HUGE bug literally made the event unplayable for at least 2 weeks).

  16. This game has long been a problem that you really can’t be successful without the generous information that this completely selfless site has provided. If there is anything that we as players can do to assist in the convincing of TinyCo to provide you access to a test game so this site can provide this necessary and required information, please let us know. There has to be some value to TinyCo to not lose an entire chunk of the playing base because they leave the game en masse due to frustration in not being able to progress through/complete events. God bless you RT and know the community is supporting you.

  17. Feels like my real luck at gambling, not good LoL. However I did go big (green) first 3 attempts, last one thinking 3rd time is a charm. Last spin went for black because all the previous attempts resulted in red, again trying to play the odds. So far 0-4, gonna try Black a few more times and hopefully get a win. The wheel is similar to the other wheel in the game and that has pretty bad pay outs as well based off my spins. It also appears it will land on a particular space based off the speed of the wheel but ends up on a different space in the end, kinda frustrating but what can ya do. Just gotta stay positive because it is very early still, good luck out there fellow clammers!

  18. Yes, I agree. Not a fan of roulette so far. Takes so long to get a chance to spin and there is nothing we can do to improve the odds of landing on a winner. 4 tries one red win for me too.
