Carnival Window

How to Play

Most of the action takes place in the event window. You're playing games in gaming alley by spending your Carnival Ticket Tickets. You decide which game you want to play. Each game costs only one Carnival Ticket Ticket to play, and don't worry if you run out, the Carnival provides a new free Carnival Ticket Ticket every hour! Enter the event window and select any of the three games to play:

Carnivaldescribe

You can spend your Carnival Ticket Ticket on a certain win, and you will always get something in return. However, you can also take a risk and try your luck in one of the other games, where chances to win are lower, but the potential gain is much greater.

Every time you lose, the pool of Florins Florins rises for that particular option. The first person lucky enough to win, will take all the Florins Florins that have accumulated in the meantime. While winning the first game is not much of an achievement (you will always win a small sum of Florins Florins), it is a bit more difficult for the second and third game. If you have enough luck to be successful, you will win the entire Florins Florins pool that has accumulated for this particular game.

And if you are the person that got the best result in a single attempt, you will become the "Top Gamester" and you will have a chance of getting a unique Mask Statue for your city. The mask is granted every three days, so make sure to keep an eye on the game and use your Tickets when the potential payout is high!

There are four different kinds of prizes that you can get during the Carnival Event:

  • The Top Gamester reward awarded every 3 days: the Zanni Mask Statue, a 1x1 decoration.
  • The Timed Reward you can get directly by spending Florins (it changes every 6 hours).
  • A random reward from the chest (the chest's content changes every 12 hours).

The whole neighborhood is competing for the same Florins Florins, and every 3 days the top player that has been rewarded the highest amount of Florins Florins with one sole Carnival Ticket Ticket is named Top Gamester and receives a neighborhood reward - Zanni Mask Statue.

The left side prize in the bottom of the Event Window is rotated every 6 hours while the right side prize is rotated every 12 hours. This latter prize is called the Daily Special Chest and contains five different prizes with certain winning chances.

The mechanics of the event are mostly similar to last year's. However Roses and Hearts have been replaced by Carnival Ticket Tickets and Florins Florins respectively.

Buying Event Currency

Both Tickets as well as Florins can be bought with diamonds. The respective rates are listed below:

For Tickets

Each Carnival Ticket Ticket has a unit price of Diamonds 10 diamonds.

  • Carnival Ticket 1 Ticket= Diamonds 10 Diamonds
  • Carnival Ticket 5 Tickets= Diamonds 50 Diamonds
  • Carnival Ticket 11 Tickets= Diamonds 110 Diamonds

For Florins

  • Florins 400 Florins= Diamonds 200 Diamonds= 2 Florins/Diamond
  • Florins 3500 Florins= Diamonds 1650 Diamonds= 2.12 Florins/Diamond
  • Florins 10000 Florins= Diamonds 4000 Diamonds= 2.5 Florins/Diamond

Prize Systems
