Saving coins for Act 2?

We'll know in 2 days if Cletus' game runs on a different currency.

    Now it's just collecting chips for extra donuts.
    But isn't it better to save all my coins (so not playing Moe's slotmachine game) for Act 2? So I can have a 'kick-start'?
    Or do you need another currency than coins to play Cletus' dice game?

    One thing is for sure, the red chips will disappear and get swapped out for either green or blue. If you are close enough in red chips to a round of bonuts as act 1 is ending, it would be worth it to use some of those slot tokens to generate the red chips needed.

    Is it better to store coins? It's arguable.

    But I'm going to do this as well because I'm thinking along the same lines as you. I may save it for Act 2 or blow it all in Act 3.

    Nobody's quite sure how the other casino games will work, but I figure at the very least I can still use them with Moe's slots. No loss since I will have all the track prizes.

    Isn't Cletus' game part of Act 2? Act 2 starts March 7th.

    Just looked at the walkthrough. Cletus game starts on the 3rd.

    I am wondering this also. I have 105 coins and as I'm pretty much logging in every 4hrs, I'll surely have well over 500 by Act 2...

    I'm hoping for the head start too, also to get a wider range of crafting items when I do use them.

    That's what I'm afraid of too. BUT...if we were only using the tokens for part 1 why would they be available to buy until the end of the event?

    I think Cletus is part of Act 1.

    The timer for 'New Prizes' in Act 1 still has 5d 08h 34m to go right now, so I take it then the prizes change and with it comes Act 2.

    I've been playing coins as soon as I earn them in order to try to win enough key rings and coasters to get to Craft Level 2. I sped through Act I fairly quickly (I earned Lucius last night), so I'm not too concerned about earning resources for Act II.

    Your right, I re-read the walk thru. As for coins, I'm starting to save unless needed for a daily task.

    I am also trying to get to craft level 2, however I may not have as much time in Act 2 to "speed through" so I am rethinking

    maybe because the whole event runs on the same tokens...

    I'm half an half on this one. I'll get the final prize tomorrow, so will have a good 3-4 days at donuts, however I could just save my coins for act 2 and it will give me a good head start. Now thinking about my day to day life, when act 2 starts I'm going to be able to play less due to "RL" commitments, so I'm seriously contemplating when I've finished with act 1, to just stop spending my coins, so it can help me with act 2!

    decisions decisions!

    - If you look at the Burns' Casino Players Club, as at Prize 17 it is still Game Tokens. i doubt anybody could have reached this prize as at Act 1, so i believe Acts 2 & 3 will continue to issue Game Tokens. Plus Tokens are available for purchase in the store for the duration of the entire event, don't think EA wanna design a separate Token for each Act.

    Although in reality, i don't think ppl use Tokens to play Dice or Cards in casinos. They just find an empty seat and wager using chips instead. I understand it would be too much for EA to tailor the game to such detail, so it's fine by me.


    - Also, plan ahead what you wanna craft for Lv 2 and 3. If you foresee needing more Coasters and Keychains it is best to utilise them at Moe's now since only coasters and keychains are available at the moment (1 in 2 chance).

    Once Martinis and Tickets are available, your chances of obtaining any one type of these bonus items becomes 1 in 4. This is assuming all 4 types of bonus chips are not unique to the 3 gaming centers (e.g. Coasters/Keychains for Moe's, Martinis for Cletus' and Tickets for Homer's), and that all 3 centers are capable of rewarding all 4 types of bonus chips.

    :oops:

    I'm trying to level up to 2 so I'm spending the coins. Your screwed if they do away with the coins in act 2 and you still need to level up. My guess is. You will still get coins from tapping gamblers that are only used at Moes, and you will still only be able to get key chains and coasters at moes. It will be another coin for another casino that will earn you the next crafting stuff. You will find them by tapping gamblers. It will just be random. I assume it will be like real life where each casino has there own gambling coins that only work at there casino.

    Since you can use tokens to play Cletus' game as well, I'm assuming they'll stick around through the later acts and be used with the other games. Not entirely sure, but I've been spending all my coins to get all the bonuts I can. Just in case.

    Agree. Safe bet to say that hoarding is viable now, so I will continue to do so.

    I'm getting about 70+ coins a day. That and regular tapping is allowing me to get 6 bonuts a day, so..... not hoarding at all.
