    You don't send Homer and Lisa to "hide from Springfielders," or click the thumbs up to finish the task. This way you can send your entire Springfield residents to "hunt for Simpsons," over and over and collect thousands and thousands of gift cards. This then means for spins for the wheel of ****.
    I was afraid if I didn't complete Xmas jobs I might miss completing something important.

    Yeh true.

    Stupid me tapped the tree house in my tapping frenzy didnt I?

    Yeh I think so... :(

    I think it's unfair to have so many $100 cash and only 1 prize left. My chances of getting this are very unlikely
    and I refuse to gamble real money on it.

    There is no trick to it. It's all luck. Just keep visiting neighbors and earning coins, and hopefully you'll get lucky. There's still plenty of time.

    I just got 3 donuts from a Homer job that I might have missed?

    I'm about to try this again. I've now saved up 14 more coins and need those same 2 items.
    Wish me luck!

    Is there a trick to getting what you want on this wheel?
    I've spent about 40 tokens and still can't get the yeti.
    In fact the last 10 spins have landed on $1000 cash. :(

    Good luck!

    I made my cat spin with her paw, and I got the yeti, finally.. So get or steal a cat. :lol:

    I'm gonna miss out on helter shelter and ice god since this is the forth straight day where I've landed on cash.
    Looks like EA really wants my money but I'll stay freemium forever

    Well, another 15 coins down and still no damn Yeti. :(
    He's the character that I actually wanted.

    It's really unfortunate they made this so hard. I've played from the beginning and paid to support an entertaining game. Since I played the game without seeking exploits, or clever use of game mechanics I'm left without my helter shelter.. Even after purchasing forty spins I'm still missing the shelter. I'm really disappointed that because of bad luck that I'll be missing out on this. Honestly I can't see spending anymore money since the idea has been to complete my collection. Hopefully they can or will fix this obvious bad game design.

    Yeah, they should let us buy the item/character we want outright.
    I'd spend 50 donuts to buy the Yeti, but I REFUSE to spend 50 donuts for 10 chances to gamble with those terrible odds!

    That's a shady way for EA to make money.

    Used up well over 100 coins - 1 every day from day 2 plus 78 from visiting neighbors - and just could not get that Ice God Statue. I know it is just a RNG, but statistically I should have gotten them all. I'm not too ticked off about not clearing the wheel since the item I did not get is my least favorite, but the multiplier would have been nice. A trade-in system would have been better, with the Claus Co & other rare items the most expensive.

    Luck was on my side. I just cleared it on my second to last token ever. Never spent any donuts. 105,000 gift cards to success.
