ADDICTS NEWS & TIPS
Well as I said yesterday the good news is that TinyCo are going to be helping me out with some clams every month, but this is NOT an infinite stash so I need to spend them wisely as I don’t want to be left with none half way through the month. So bear with me as I find my feet investing those clams as wisely as possible. But I will of course prioritize getting a post up warning if there is any timers then the overview and main Questlines as you requested. This event isn’t that simple to speed through due to the Roulette but I’ll still manage to be ahead of the game, so we should be fine. Good luck everyone!!!
You may notice the amount posts declining but you’ll still have all the sane information, I’m just going to put more in this the Overview post, so you’ve everything in one place. Such as rather than doing a separate Mystery Box post or Should I buy on premium items I’ll put all the details here. We’ll test this out for next few weeks then I’ll get your feedback and see if we need tweak things.
Outwith that don’t panic if you’re not ready to start this phase, virtually no one else is.
CURRENT APP VERSION
Magical Mystery Box paying out 150 Clams instead of 155 Clams when won, TinyCo have pushed a fix, and if you were impacted you’ll have got a pop up apologising and awarding you 10 Clams.

Golden Nugget – 200 Drops 2x Gold Reward Cards every 8 hours.
Should I buy: Look these Gold Reward Cards are hard to come by at first, but 200 Clams for 6 cards a day! Seriously that’s too expensive. I’d be looking for at least double that to drop. This is a tiny 1×1 decoration, that’s sadly overpriced. 100 clams and I’d been tempted but at 200 I’ll just leave it on the shelf.

MAGICAL MYSTERY BOX
Costs 150 Clams per try. No duplicate prizes, so basically once you win an item it leaves the box.
Fellow Addicts Tip: If you’ve not reached the Week 2 content yet you’ll have a better chance of getting him as the Gold Tokens and Gold Cards won’t show up as prizes. So don’t wait until you’re in Week 2 to try this if your tempted!!!
** Obviously the star prize is Raymond Teller, and it took me 4 attempts to win him. My results were as follows, but please be aware I already had Geronimo’s Palace, Zoot Suit Stewie & Kingpin Consuela so they weren’t in my box:
11 Silver Reward Cards
12 Gold Roulette Tokens
Total spend to win Raymond Teller: 445 Clams (600 minus the 155 Clams I won in the box)
Should I try: It’s a lot of clams on a game of chance, sure TinyCo have listened and removed the repeatable materials, but materials still make up the majority of prizes, and is 11 Silver Reward Cards worth 150 Clams, no, not at all. But the odds recently do seem to be a bit higher of winning the star prize, so although the Mystery Boxes are still overpriced in my opinion, you do have a better chance of a good outcome. But unless you are a massive fan of Raymond Teller I’d be tempted to skip this so your clams don’t quickly disappear. Remember the Christmas event isn’t far off, save those clams for then

You will trigger them and learn about them at Part 1 of the main Questline What Happens In Quahog. 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 Magician Quagmire but clearing them is pretty much the same formulae used for Casino Workers etc in the first week.
Basically to clear them Tap on a Casino Thug 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 Thug. But as you can see you can’t do anything until you unlock Magician Quagmire.
And of course you need an item, in the case of clearing Casino Thugs this is 1x Strip Show Board.
Strip Show Board (Common): Magician Quagmire See A Strip Show
So basically you’ll need Magician Quagmire and 1x Strip Show Board to get clearing Casino Thugs now.
Task Time: Instant
+5 Gold Reward Cards (Always)
+1 Magic Bullets (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 What Happens In Quahog. You will find them wandering your sidewalks and you will need to use a Character task to clear them.
Tap on a Stripper wandering around to bring up the Payout and Character needed, you need David Copperfield.
Simply tap on GO to choose the Character task. Please note you can also put the Character on the task directly from his profile.
Task Time: 6hrs.
+3 Gold Roulette Tokens (Always)
+1 Magic Wand (Chance)
These have a new Week 2 drop of Playing Cards. They are also your best source of Silver Reward Cards.
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 Gold and 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 either the Silver Roulette or the Gold Roulette depending on which tokens you have to spend. Tap on your Roulette choice and it will bring you up the Roulette Screen. We’re going look at the new Gold Roulette Table this week.
To place a bet you’ll need 2 Gold Roulette Tokens. Clear Strippers, Magical Mystery Box, Ferris Wheel, Raymond Teller Perform Sleight Of Hand, Impersonator Peter Perform For Change. Once you have 2 Gold 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 in Week 1 has caused issues with progression, but it is what it so just keep calm and bet on.
The rewards vary depending on the colour you bet on and whether you win or lose.
If you win betting on Red or Black the Payout is:
+1 White Rabbit (Always)
+1 Pinstripe Suit (Always)
+3 Gold Reward Cards(Always)
If you win betting on Green the Payout is:
+5 White Rabbit (Always)
+5 Pinstripe Suit (Always)
+15 Gold Reward Cards (Always)
+1 Extra Prize – this looks to be Rainbow Rewards Cards to get past characters/costumes such as Diabeto, the Fatfather, Fight Promlter Cleveland & Burnt Out Brian if you don’t already have any of them.
If you lose the payout is:
+1 Gold Reward Card (Always)
So go spin that wheel, good luck and don’t forget to boast in the comments if you win on Green. I’ve not as yet in my test spins.
