Arcade Rewards (payouts)

[Post New]by ChestnutHeights on Apr 19, 14 10:06 AM
Besides gold, coins, resources (hammers, paint, wood) and bundles I am curious what type of payouts people have received.

Categories: Keepsakes, Collections & Food

You don't have to provide the quantity. Just the type of reward. Wondering if we are all getting the same type of items or if there's a wide variety.

I played my 20 gold bars yesterday & today and here's the type of item I received (besides the above)



Keepsakes

Grandmother's Quilt
Royal Scepter
Magic Lamp
Bezor Stone


Collections

Purple Heart Medal
Filipino Liberation Medal
Rococo Flame Clock
Assyrian Scribe (pen?)
Verdant Hexagon Locket
Pink Silk Princess Doll
The Brave Warrior Doll


Food[u]
Lasagna
Pizza

I played 5 turns at the coin machine and won a Beautiful Beret, Boyscout Knife, and some kind of common sword.

I played 7 turns at the gold machine and won a Lasagna(35 gold), Briefcase of Minigame Resources(9 gold), and a pouch of keepsakes(27 gold).

I hit 3 apples on the gold machine and received a genie lamp that doubles experience. It costs 40 gold.

Seems they've found a new way to make real life money. Get us hooked with all this gold we're getting, after you buy your semi truck there's not a lot to use it on so why not go spend some in the Arcade? I gotta hand it to em, they're gonna get a lot of people spending real money for this. At least it seems to have a better payout than the Casino

I hit 3 bananas on the gold machine today

My payout? Thread I think that may be the end of my gambling foray Thread should not be a gold machine jackpot payout

Two or three times a day, I play for about 15 minutes at a time for both the coins and the gold. I play the Gold machine first because the coin payouts are about 700 to 1000 at a time and then I use that to play the coin machine - so in essence I do not spend any coins. Usually by the time I've played enough, I'm down only 3 to 5 gold.

I win at least 12 keepsakes including the pouch of keepsakes, at least 6 large food items like pizza or lasagna, about 6 smaller food items for 60 to 80 XP, resources and collectibles. Interesting to note, sometimes the collectibles and resources come in multiples of 3 to 6 in one win.

But the best wins I enjoyed the most was getting the COLUMBUS DAY STAMP and the VICTORIAN STAFFORSHIRE TEAPOT!!

I am not seeing a pattern in hitting something like the three bananas - I got the lamp. Something to do and it seems to be worth it so far.

At least they have changed it so you do get proper gifts for matches of 3 about 50% of the time. A few days ago you got less for matches of 3 than you got for matches of 2. Still do 50% of the time though. Would be good if they made it 100% better for a match of 3.

I decided to try the arcade again because of this thread. On the gold machine, I've won construction bundles and mini-game bundles, as well as gold bars and gold coins. I also won a hummingbird box and a grandma's quilt. The only collectible I've won is the corn doll. Overall, a much better experience than the last time I tried it. I wonder if it gets better as you upgrade the arcade? I've upgraded mine twice so far.

I upgraded to Level 5 and then customized it before playing one single $$.

Yes, the prizes get better and more frequent with every upgrade. I recommend before spending coins/gold on the slots that you upgrade to Level 5 and customize first. No, I havent won the Berry Popsicle yet, but I have won most of the other food prizes.

A word of caution - this is not true for everyone. I played three times before I upgraded to Level 5 and customized and basically broke even on winnings. Since I got to Level 5 and customized, I have played both machines ten times and ended up with 8 coins. As I've said in other threads, I'm done with the arcade unless I have to play it for a quest.

Question: In another thread about the arcade, some people said that customizing the arcade gets you better rewards but others said that hasn't been their experience. I have done one customizing-the rooster as a couple of people said that made I difference. Since that, I haven't played enough in the arcade to really determine if it has made a difference. For those of you who have noticed a difference with customizing, have you found that the more customizing options you buy, the better the payouts from the slot machine?

Thanks!

Well, I only have one of them, I have the Rooster, And it has definitely made a difference for me. You can see in my post above that I have won a lot of stuff and I only play a few times a day. I dont like wasting my gold, so I mostly play the coin slots. I have won almost every collectible in the Bronze section, plus a lot of keepsakes and bundles from the coin slots. Occasionally when I do play the gold slots, I usually win food prizes and collectibles from the Gold and Platinum sections.

Another question-Besides giving better prizes, does anyone know if upgrading and customizing the arcade actually increases your chances of winning at the slot machines?

One annoying thing about the slots is how slow they are!! I would probably play a lot more if they weren't so slow!

I'm really looking forward to seeing if more games open up in the arcade with future updates. It certainly looks like there are more games coming!

I would definitely say I am getting a better return after upgrading to 5 and then customising - I got the first 3 of those and then went straight up to the top one. However, it is still a bit mixed - and not with every roll. Sometimes I am only just in profit, sometimes more so, but sometimes end up with things I didn't really want.......

I don't get such a good return from the coins - often just a single resource.

This has been my experience with the payouts.

Coin Machine
match 2 50-200 coins or 3 resources or Bronze collectible or 1 gold bar or keepsake
match 3 100-1000 coins or 3 resources or Bronze collectible or 3 gold bars or keepsake

Gold Machine
match 2 3000-7000 coins or 2-3 gold bars or 5 resources or Gold/Platinum collectible or keepsake
match 3 3000-7000 coins or 5-10 gold bars or 10 resources or Gold/Platinum collectible or keepsake

The game made a mistake in my favor! I was playing the slot machine that takes the gold bars. Twice, I won the construction bundle. When I opened the bundle, however, I received not just the construction bundle but one of each of the mini-game resources, i.e. the "Briefcase of Minigame Resources." One of each isn't much of course but it's still nice to have a glitch that does something good for you!
