Premium Stuff


The Store

Donuts are the premium currency in The Simpsons: Tapped Out. Donuts can be used to purchase a variety of content include new buildings, decorations, and characters. While you can earn donuts through regular gameplay, the most direct way to acquire donuts is to purchase them.

The more money you spend upfront, the better the value. As a general rule, especially if you are a long-time player who routinely purchases premium stuff, first save up your money then buy your donuts. This will save you so much money in the long run.

Golden Scratch-R

Players also have the option to purchase “Golden Scratch-R” tickets from the Kwik-E-Mart. Each ticket costs $0.99 (£0.69) and affords the player the opportunity to win between 6 and 100 donuts.

In the short-term, this may seem like the best option for purchasing donuts, but it’s not. The statistics prove that in the long run you will eventually hit a point of diminishing return. So while you may hit the jackpot every so often, you won’t get lucky all the time. Much like gambling, you need to know when to walk away.

As you can see from the chart below, the more Golden Scatch-R tickets you buy, the more money and donuts you’ll lose over time. It may not feel that way, but the proof is in the statistics.

    Im not a premium player but i have saved up about 85 donuts.Thinking i should spend them soon, any opinions on what i should get?I was thinking the pet shop as its the cheapest that comes with a character.What do you guys think?

      If I were you, I’d save some more donuts to buy other building/character combo, like Otto. Jub-Jub have only one task. Other than that the lizard will just wander around, like other NPC’s.
