    It doesn't even let you choose how fast you want to spin the wheel or how slow, it's the same speed all the time, doesn't matter if I go clockwise or anticlockwise it still lands on money, what made it even more rigged I was about to land on the shelter and literally the whole game froze for like a split second and screen sorta like jumped and flickered white for a split second, ohh waddya know, skipped passed the shelter onto more friggin money, if that's not rigged, what is? What I saw there was like a bad photoshop job, no pics as I had the device on the table as it happens, even friggen spilt my glass of coke trying to grab it in time.

    At least EA could give is the option of buying the prizes on the wheel, it would be a lot cheaper than the amount of donuts I've spent on it (over 150 donuts)!!

    Last time I checked, 150 donuts got you maybe one building. Not two buildings, two player skins, like eight premium deco's, 10 house facades, and an NPC.

    I meant to buy one prize on the wheel, not all of them.

    I'm at 35,000 as well and have only gotten cash once in all my spins. EA must like me.

    Must be the mod thing.

    It is not a physical wheel,like at a carnival. It is a simple probability formula. Your prize is determined as soon as you start the wheel spinning. There is a certain percentage (that is not equal) for each prize slot. As soon as you start your spin, the game determines the prize. All that the graphic is for is to make it "fun".

    When the wheel seems to skip or when the pointer seems to be on the wrong prize, that is not the game "cheating". That is poor code writing. It knows what you will win long before the wheel stops. The graphics code is supposed to make it look like the wheel is smoothly stopping at a certain prize, sometimes it's not so smooth.

    Spinning backwards or forwards or moving the wheel does not have an impact. It is like blowing on a casino chip for luck or bringing a troll doll to the bingo hall. It might make you feel better, but it has no impact on the outcome of the event.

    Thinking back to what I have won on the wheel, the published probabilities of the various prize slots, and how many times I have spun, my prize distribution matches the published probabilities pretty closely. At least within the expected variance

    I found a way to cheat the system!
    First put the prize you want on the other side of krusty

    Then spin it really slow
    You'll have a bigger chance at winning this way :twisted:

    I already got the snowmonster and clausco this way :twisted:

    What's a Rort?

    Plus I do hate the wheel, I get about 5 to 6 spins a day cause I have everyone Hunting the Simpons. I still need ClausCo, the snowman and Plow King. Cash and occasional gift cards. Sucks.
