Question for The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Has anyone figured a technique for the damn dog races. I bet the odds on favorite 6 times and won 3 times so I came out minus $2500, so I decided to try the long shot a couple times (didn't keep track of it since I was frustrated) no wins. Give me a cheat! Add me moondogpro

One trick that I use, which works better if you're NOT on a wifi network, is to have as many Characters as you can "Shop at the Kwik-E-Mart". Wait until they finish (by then you will be able to bet on a race), and as quickly as you can, tap on the Kwik-E-Mart to complete the multiple characters' tasks WITHOUT tapping on all the Money and XP to collect them, then scroll over to Springfield Downs and bet on whatever race. If your dog loses, as quickly as possible close the game then reopen it. Because there is a lag in the communication between the game and the network, the game "forgets" that you've bet on a race whilst trying to keep track of all the tasks completed by your characters. You should still have your $5,000 and, depending on how much data the game has processed, your characters might still be waiting at the Kwik-E-Mart with big yellow "thumbs-up's" ready to try the process again. I have managed to do this several times in a row before the game catches up. I usually just do it once, and if I lose, send The Characters back to shop and try again in an hour.

The best thing I've found for my iphone, is send a txt message to yourself from another phone, just as the winner is announced, before it actually goes to the "you lost" screen. If you accept the txt message and leave the game, when you come back into the game it will be like the race never happened....and now you know who's going to win Smile

Don't want to lose... Don't bet.

I am done playing the F$&/$9 Race since 0/5 $25000 and a lot F$$&/9 Smile

Any new things some can share to make some $ fast aside from brown houses or force shutting the game? ;)

I'm not going to risk it. Also, Brown houses give you jack. Not worth the effort. Whenever I have more than enough for an impending quest involving a new Building, I buy a new white house and stack it near all the others. If you can check it at the same time day and night, (12 hour cycle), you can make some serious Cash and perpetuate the cycle, but experience is low.

I hate to say it but the only thing that gets you guaranteed $ is consistency. The 60 minute missions give you more Money in the long run than the 2 hr missions, which give more money than the 4 hour, and so on. So instead of putting everyone on a 24 hour mission, pick an amount of hours when you know you're going to come back to and not get bored with over time- I do 4 hour periods and set 8 hour missions bfore bed, but you can do 8 hour, or 2 hour missions depending on your level of commitment (you can do 1 hour missions if you really want but my experience is this can get boring after a while and you lose interest in the game more easily).
So like I said the key is consistency- if you know you can come back to the game every 4 hours or so without getting bored of it set 4 hour missions and watch your Money grow.

Hey, that is not how statistics works. If the odds are one to a billion that a certain dog would win that does not mean the dog wins once every billion trials. Each trial is its own unique event. The dog could win every single time or not even once, not in a billion tries, not in a quadrillion tries.

If this is difficult to understand my advice is to stay away from Vegas.

The betting goes from up to down and from down to up. Just bet The First time take a snapshot before and after the winner. The second time is a guess it can be te upper dog or the dog behind it. Third you wil know. Thats basicly it.

The track is a waste of time anyway. The favorite, while listed at 1:2 actually only pays at 1:4. The next dog shows 1:1 but pays 1:2. Next dig show 2:1 but only pays 1:1. The next shows 4:1 but only pays 2:1. The last dog shows odds of 9:1, but only pays at4:1. No matter the system you use, you will lose Money.

When you first get the downs it`ll tell you to bet on the first dog; This is what I do: after betting on the first dog and win I wait for it to be available again, but this time I don`t place any bets instead I store the Building and immediately put it back, this resets the cycle and the next time it`s available I bet on the first dog again and I win. This way you can only win once every two hours but it`s better that loosing $5000 every hour.

Guest answered: Added 4th Jul 2013, ID #595293

This is the technique that I found in the game.
When you don't have a lot of Money (I.e. Something around $0-2000 I don't know) then bet on the 5th one. If you have some money ($3000-8000) then bet on the 4th one. If you have around $9000-20,000 then bet on the third one. If you have $30,000-40,000/50,000 then bet on the second one. If you have $50,000+ you are most likely to get the first one to win.
Works every time.

I always go for the second dog on the list and for the last 3 weeks and 4 days I've always won. If this doesn't work for you, ( I did this before I did the second dog thing!) keep track of who's won on a piece of paper, and see who has not won for a while. AMAZING CHEAT THAT GIVES YOU 10 Donuts: It's really simple, just click on homer 10 times and you automatically get 10 donuts and a statue, I AM NOT JOKING, IT ACTUALLY WORKS! Sadly, it only works once but still, 10 donuts free is amazing! If you try it, you won't regret it! Plz comment on my answer and say if the cheat works for you!

Guest answered: Added 26th Aug 2013, ID #602005

There is a pattern. It's a different pattern for everyone but you can find it. Bet on the 2-1 for a while and you'll find a dog that always wins when they're the 2-1 dog. That's the beginning of the pattern. From there, pay attention to the pattern. Once you get your first 40k, that's worth 20 bets so it offsets your learning process. After that it's free Money. I can't believe nobody else figured this out!

No need to tap on anything but the dog race
Select 99-1 odds dog
Drag up control menu for iPad or iPhone . Turn on airplane mode
Wait for result. If you win turn off airplane mode.
If you lose quit game and restart game on another device
Repeat until you win !

I win 100,000 every race. Quicker than clicking!

I think what happened with -$2500 is the same with the unlimited doghnut cheat so what that means is that buy a Building for Cash (for instance),like the purple house and it just might be lucky and give you Money depending on how much the object costed.quite simple really.

There is a pattern to which dogs win. Each time you place a bet, take down the winners name in notes on your phone... After about 5-10 races you can work out from the note who's going to win the next race

Guest answered: Added 21st May 2015, ID #663077

Here how you win the Springfield Downs.
First few times you have to lose (you have lose so many times go for few more) now here is a catch every time you bet keep a record of line up of the dogs by writing or snap shot. Then again keep the record of the dog which won the race by same writing or snap shot. Now next time when you see the same line up bet on the dog which have won you will never miss it. I have won more than 20times in this way. BEST OF LUCK GUYS.

Guest answered: Added 24th May 2015, ID #663248

I think best way is to bet on the max IF you have alot of houses (mostly blues pinks and purples) cause evrey day I get 10 thousand dollers from houses and 2500 Isnt much to me but 200 thousand is huge! If your lucky youl be super rich and get evreything you wanted then. You will not regret this when you win. Go for most/second most one or if tierd from lousing go for 50%-50% chance (not a chance)

Conventional wisdom is that the winner is random according to the odds given in the game. However, I wonder when the game chooses the winner. Before or after the bet is placed? If it's after then no cheat will work. If it's before then there is a possibility that the order that the dogs are listed may be significant. I just started keeping track. There are 120 possible arrangements of the dog's names so it may take months to figure this out. As a start, my last play was ONDRB and D won.

Mark64b said: 22nd Jan 2019 | REPORT
Now up to 10 races with only one repeat (same dog won both times). Not statistically significant yet but still in agreement that the order does matter. All 5 dogs are winning as are all different places so most of the comments here do not really work. To help in the study, post your order and winner using the first letter in the dog's name, but use B for Drool Britannia.
