Giveaway Wheel[edit]

You Spin Me Round.jpg

The Giveaway Wheel is a prize wheel. A chance on the wheel costs a spin token and you can use the wheel after you have collected your first spin token. The wheel gives you one of ten prizes. You can only win prizes once. Once you have won all the prizes on a certain section of the wheel, it is replaced by Cash.png1,000 or gift cards.

Spin tokens can be earned four ways:

  1. The Egg Nog Bar produces 1 spin token every 24 hours.
  2. There is a slight chance of spin tokens appearing in gift bags and presents, similar to donuts appearing in ghosts during the Treehouse of Horror XXIV event.
  3. A spin token is awarded for every additional Tapped Out GiftCard.png1,000 the player collects after obtaining all the personal prizes.
  4. Spin Tokens can be purchased for donuts: 1 spin token costs Donut Tapped Out.png10, 3 spin tokens costs Donut Tapped Out.png25, and 10 spin tokens cost Donut Tapped Out.png50.

Mechanics[edit]

Tapped Out Character locator.png

Two new mechanics were added to the game. The first is a character locator. At the top left of the screen, there is a face of a character. Clicking on that will take you to the character. The face will then change to another character.

Second is an easier way to navigate through friends. When you're in a friend's Springfield, there are two arrows in the bottom left of the screen, one pointing left and one pointing right. Clicking these will take to the previous or next Springfield on your friends list.
