You Spin Me Round (Like a Prize Wheel)

Did you miss out on all of the Christmas house façades from last year? Well good news! You can earn them, but you’ll have to work for it. Every gold coin you collect gives you a chance to spin the prize wheel. There’s even a new façade for the Skinner House, as well as a chance to earn some premium decorations.

If you’re lucky you might even win content that is exclusive to this prize wheel, like Helter Shelter. For a full list of the possible prizes, check after the break. Keep in mind you can purchase gold coins with donuts, but there’s always a chance you’ll just earn the dummy prize of $1000 cash.

      Same here. I was hoping someone had found a trick by now and was checking back on this post.

    Why can’t I add friends and am I lucky for getting Claus co with 3 spins?

      If you have 100 friends, you can’t add more. If you add someone who already has their 100 friends, you won’t be able to add them. These are reasons I have received errors before.

    I can’t add anymore friends but I only have 27 and I really want all personal prizes so what can i do-jackbenrobertsXI

      I can try to delete a non player friend on my list and try to add you. I have read posts in the past where a person had to get friends by them requesting and not her. My request will be clowninclay.

    My wheel shows Homer in the plow costume instead of Barney. Do you know if this means O have to win the Homer Plow costume first and then it will be replaced by the picture of Barney costume?

      Yes, that’s exactly how it works.

    S I won the Flanders facade but how do I use it? I can’t find it anywhere or am I stupid?

    • December 12, 2013 at 4:15 pm #

      Nvm I just realized it changes automatically

    What am I supposed to do when I’m asked to “Have types of decorated houses”? Help me,please…

    • December 12, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

      You have to win the decorated house façades on the Holiday Wheel, which you can spin by earning spin tokens. You earn one free spin each day after placing the Egg Nog Bar.

        Thank you very,veeeeery much! I know it may have been a stupid question…I didn’t realise what others asked.

        • December 12, 2013 at 1:15 pm #

          Not a problem at all. Always happy to help.

    Spent about 700 donuts so far on the wheel. Got everything except Snowman and Claus Co (what I wanted the most). I keep trying but keep getting the 1000$. Anyone know if there is a way to get these items without blowing my donut budge?

    • December 12, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

      It’s exclusive to the wheel, so no. :(

    Amazing job, FB. You’ve had all covered in a jiffy. Thanks a zillion for the hard work !

    • December 12, 2013 at 10:03 am #

      Always a pleasure. :) Getting information out quickly, without sacrificing quality, is pretty much the TSTOgame guarantee. :P

    Would anyone be able to inform me as to how i access the wheel? ive been going mad searching the net for ages and NOTHING says how to access the wheel to spin it :(

    i can understand no christmas lights for the cool house and ultrahouse, but why not Wiggums house. next year then?

    • December 11, 2013 at 6:14 pm #

      I think it’s odd too, especially since the animation was already created for it last year.

    Christmas White House is missing under Facades

    What happens if you win the plow king but don’t have barney is it just a skin that stay’s in your inventory and is completely useless unless you spend donuts and buy barney and the bowlarama??

    • December 11, 2013 at 8:58 am #

      Most likely, yes. Maybe it won’t even appear on the wheel if you don’t have Barney.

    I couldn’t resist and spent 200 Donuts on the coins yesterday (40 coins). I actually got all of the items out of it, which isn’t that bad a deal (I think the Snow Simpsons alone would cost around 150 Donuts). The one thing I’m worried about, though: Once you unlock the special items, they are replaced by gift card fields and cash fields. The latter only give 1,000$ and there are only three of them, but I constantly hit them – more so than sounds statistically likely, given that there are way more gift card fields… :/

      The way the game usually works, the worse a prize, the more likely you will get it.

    December 11, 2013 at 6:16 am #

    Can win the same item on consecutive spins?

    • December 11, 2013 at 8:56 am #

      No, once you win the wheel removes the prize and adds something new.

    • JasonG
      December 11, 2013 at 6:55 pm #

      I have a question: I have items like the Marge Snowman, the Maggie Snowman and the Lisa Snowman from last year. So if you already have these items, do you get them again?

      • December 11, 2013 at 6:59 pm #

        Yes, but once you get them on the wheel this year, they will be removed from the wheel to make way for new prizes.

    It tooks me 75 coins to get all the prize (but I already had the 2012 ones), seems totally random but not sure.

    Mapple store. So sad it’s not there.

    This is surely a dumb question but how do we spin the wheel? Do we have to unlock it first?

    • December 10, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

      The first time you get a spin token is when you’ll be prompted to spin the wheel. Once you are at the screen, just swipe along the wheel to spin it.

      • Mike
        December 10, 2013 at 10:11 pm #

        Thanks so much.

        Just have to get a token first. Thank you.

    I’m so happy we can get Mr. Plow… :-)

  22. December 10, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

    Do the coins come when you tap things or just appear

    • December 11, 2013 at 7:35 pm #

      If you still have a spot for me, add “feelingblind” to your friends list.

    Does it only offer things you don’t have? I have all of these skins from last year, plus the Marge/Lisa/Maggie snowwomen.

    • December 10, 2013 at 7:03 pm #

      If you already have things, the wheel will replaced with something you don’t have yet. Once you have everything the wheel has to offer you’ll only be spinning for cash or gift cards.

      • Jeff
        December 11, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

        It doesn’t look like that’s always the case (the wheel replacing items that you already have) I had the Marge snowman from last year, and just got another on my first spin of the wheel. Arrgh…

      • December 11, 2013 at 8:17 pm #

        Jeff is correct I got Lisa and I already have her from last year.

      • Joseph
        December 12, 2013 at 5:47 am #

        Actually what happens is that the wheel replaces any item you have won on that wheel, does not take into account if you had that one from last year.

        For example, if you had Marge snowman from last year, you can get “another one” from this wheel, but just once. Then at the next spin, Marge snowman will be removed and replaced with something you have not got yet (from that wheel!).

    Thank you! Is earning coins just hit or miss like the gift bags? I have 2 games and my primary has gotten no coins and my secondary got one. I immediately visited all my neighbors and only got 2 gift bags and no coins.

  25. December 10, 2013 at 6:45 pm #

    Thats good news! When I saw only christmas skins for sale but only for Frink’s lab and the Volcano lair (both premium) I was a bit disapointed. I want ALL the lights! (like the meme)

  26. December 10, 2013 at 6:44 pm #

    Where do the gold coins come in? I haven’t seen any yet.

    • December 10, 2013 at 6:50 pm #

      It happens by chance, there is no set time to get your first one.

      • tipo
        December 10, 2013 at 8:12 pm #

        I think you get the first one from the egg nog bar. It takes 24h to produce one.

      • Rayph Wiggum
        December 11, 2013 at 10:33 am #

        @tipo there have been reports of people having gotten one randomly from a giftbox already.

        • December 11, 2013 at 10:44 am #

          That’s how I got mine, because I didn’t place the Egg Nog Bar right away.
