Be aware of the 5 minute time limit for Ali Baba's Tokens, and the one day time limit for 2008 Halloween!
For Showbiz Slots versus Showbiz Slots II badges, make sure you select the right game for your challenge!
For the Ali Baba Jewel Juggler or Carpet Diem badges, a Jewel of Ultimate Luckiness is one of the story counter gems across the top.
For the Sock Hop Halftime Hop or Striped Socks badges, getting a record album triggers the Free Spin Bonus, which gives you eight free spins, each of which awards triple payout.
Spooky Slots is only out around Halloween. For the Pumpkin Farmer badge, just keep spinning to unlock the story sections. Each time you get a pumpkin on the pay line it counts as one "story bonus".
No other tips here - just keep hitting Spin til you get the required items.
ALWAYS read a game's How to Play, and also check for a Hints or Tips tab and/or Tutorial. They do help!
These are the easiest games on Pogo (along with Hog Heaven Slots and Vaults of Atlantis) and can practically be played in your sleep. They often give some good token payouts when playing the maximum bet, but be aware you are gambling with your tokens: if you don't want to take a chance on losing some, bet the minimum.
Unlocking chapters of the games' stories gives bonus token payouts, as does completing each story.
More about Story Slots games
Spooky Slots shows up for Halloween and is similar to the other story slot games. Several one-time Special Edition badges have been offered with requirements similar to the weekly challenges, but unlike regular weekly challenge, Special Edition badges can't be earned later as Personal challenges.
Jack-o-Lantern was different in that it was offered as the regular weekly badge for October 24, 2007 but like the other Special Edition badges, it's not available as a Personal challenge. For this one, you had to first get a ghost on the payline, which triggers ten free spins (and triple payouts), and then you had to get 200 tokens or more with those spins.
Ranks & badges were added to Ali Baba slots in May 2008.
Sock Hop Slots was released in December 2008.
