Native American’s are famously known for operating casinos. If you think Springfield should have its own casino you can now add Caesar’s Pow-Wow Casino to your town, but should you? It does come with a character, but is that enough of a reason to buy it? Pros: It earns $200 and 22 XP every 8h […]

Winter is Coming… to Springfield

If you’ve never played Tapped Out during the holidays, you have yet to see your town covered in snow with rivers iced over.
