Event ended - no more bonus donuts

Prev1
My Daily Challenge that kicked in when the event "ended" was to play the dice game. I spent one coin and got three donuts. Woo.

    And I was so close to another bonut set too. :(
    Not sure what this means for people who still have prizes to get, do you still get chips to count towards that?
    Cumulative tallies still go up, so I'd imagine they'd count. Just the bonus quest ceased.

    Suppose it's smart by EA - stops people staying with the Event without updating for bonuts, but allows those that didn't finish extra time to do so.

    I noticed the blue chip bonus had gone from my task book too - quite funny that my daily challenge prize was for blue chips :shock:

    I closed the game on my Nexus 7 to pop into another game for a few minutes. The bonus disappeared and the casino no longer pays out chips or tokens. But in my iPad and Galaxy games it's still going. So it looks like if you don't close your game it continues.

    Well now my other 2 games have changed. I'm no longer collecting chips for donuts, but my casinos still pay out chips and tokens.

    Mine too, and my daily challenge reward is casino chips for collecting coasters

    Edit. I'm playing on iPad

    Well that's *. They know as well as we do it's gonna be another nine hours or so after the event finished before MAYBE the takedown happens.

    Seems like giving us less reason to play would be the last thing EA would want.

    Or they're giving us a small break until something else hits later today. Remember a desert themed event is on the horizon.

    I've still got a High Roller Bonus on my task list. I'm going to try to finish it, and then see if it sticks around after that. I've closed my app many times this morning, although I haven't forced quit it.

    We don't know it's an event, it only said update. Event typically means a timed/spaced out theme, like the casino EVENT we just had. This could be an expansion (like SH, Squidport, Krustyland), where there is no time, and it's simply up to the player how fast/slow they wish to progress.

    Well looking on the bright side, I can now send everyone except Lisa to work at the Railyard. She's still working at the Burn's Casino and I can't store it. :?

    They dropped the bonuts pretty much down to the minute. My last task round was only going to go seven minutes past the events 'end' (since we usually have a little extra time by not immediately updating after the end), but the bonus round ended before I could get the last 500 or so I needed.

    I updated, which leaves the question; why am I still collecting blue chips and tapping gamblers if the events over and I'm not getting anymore bonuts?

    I've never seen this. We always get a least another day to try to scramble for some bonuts. I'm grateful that we get anything at all. Really shouldn't complain, but once again, weird that this is happening now. Guess EA has a limit.

    Well I didn't expect this early takedown of the Bonut quests either! Was just within one 4-hour task of Burns Casino of another round of Bonuts!

    No reason at all unless you can still use crafting resources. I'm ignoring my gamblers now.

    A lot of my buildings have animated without tasking, wish that was permanent.

    I still had the bonus chip active in one of my towns, and I was about 200 chips away from bonuts. I decided to see if I could visit neighbors to finish it off. That was not the right move to make, as I found out I was hours away from visiting time, and when I came back to my town, the game had synchronized and the bonus chip was gone. D'oh!!!!!!!
