Anyone accidentally used donuts clicking too fast?

You have a small amount of time to cancel if you do press to speed up payouts. It's saved me many donuts over time. Although I wasted a fair few before. Never a good feeling to waste them.

    Write to EA. They gave me 15 donuts a week ago when I accidentally bought an extra lottery ticket. They said they were giving me 15 instead of the 3 I spent was because of the wait time. I waited about 2 weeks for them to get back to me.

    I have fat fingered and done this a number of times. It sucks, but there is not much I can do about it. EA at the time said... we are very sorry about that, but better luck next time. So I am extra careful when I am doing stuff now.

    Thank god it wasn't the Simpsons house, as I have done that multiple times and then had my seven year old daughter tell me about the cancel button. I now slow tap.

    Only once on the Simpson house. I felt nothing but annoyance with my finger. It learnt its lesson, it's a slow tapper now. ..

    Several times - plus I accidentally bought a blue funzo and could not cancel out of it.

    It's SO annoying! Especially since it feels intentional on the part of the donut sellers.

    I have done it several times too!

    EA could fix it with a simple "Are You Sure" screen before they take your donuts, that's what reputable games do...

    I think almost everyone has done it at least once. I wish we got a "Are you sure?" prompt before spending any amount of donuts in the game. I guess I've lost around 6-8 donuts since I've started playing.

    I too feel it is set up on purpose this way. When I use my iphone it happens more often since the screen is so small.

    I also have done it a few times. To the tune of around 8 donuts.
    I have saved about a dozen by canceling but I am careful now.

    I've only done it on my brown house farm a couple of times, so no huge donut loss. One more reason to get rid of that eyesore though not that I'm not power-leveling for the holiday.

    I know! It does almost seem intentional because it'd be super easy to put a "are you sure" button. I guess they assume that you'll buy em back. As I can't buy them because it would bill my mother in law. We're on the family plan and I think our I tunes has her credit card # too. I so tnlie though I've been tempted to "accidentally" buy a small amount.

    I sent a message there should be a confirmation for characters, mystery box and homer buddah. To easy to click it and spend all your donuts. I went to by Frinks Lab, end up blowing 150 on Santas little helper...
