Let the games begin!
I’ll bring Lady Luck if you’ll bring your American Express!!! That can only mean one thing. Yes, it’s Viva Las Quahog as casino fever comes to town. So let’s spin to win in Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas!
29th November at 3PM PST
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.
CURRENT APP VERSION
There are 2 new strips of land to the bottom right of your game, or South East of the centre of town if you like compass directions.

3: DAVID COPPERFIELD
David Copperfield is the star attraction to unlock this week. You’ll find full details in the Characters section.
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.
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
+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
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.
Task Time: 4hrs.
+2 Silver Roulette Tokens (Always)
+1 Rhinestones (Chance)
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.
