Mafia Wars Whack the Rat Jimmy Vegas event: Everything you need to know
As the classic saying goes, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." In this case, it would be referring to the new limited edition Mafia Wars Las Vegas jobs that kicked off Saturday, July 10.
Just like previous special events, Whack the Rat Jimmy Vegas includes three new jobs:
Hack into Hotel Records

Energy required: 16

Bribe a Guard for Roof Access
Time required: 8 Hours
Energy required: 25
Bonus: 50% chance of rare Whack the Rat collectible or event item
Position a Sniper
Time required: 24 hours
Energy Required: 33

A new collection and achievement are directly tied in with this special job. The Slots Collection is comprised of seven items:
Liberty Bell (from a Jimmy Vegas job)
Triple Bar (Fights won)
Orange (Free gift)
Lucky 7 (Jimmy Vegas job)
Cherry (Fights won)
Once the Slots Collection is completed, you'll be rewarded with a One-Armed Bandit, with 28 A, 50 D. The stats on that guy isn't that impressive, so this job is really aimed at you completists out there who want to make sure every Collection is collected and every Achievement is achieved.
Speaking of achievements, the Whack the Rat job also comes along with a new achievement: "What Stays in Vegas,' which can be earned by vaulting the Slots Collection and mastering the Whack the Rat job.
This event ends on Friday, July 16 at 11:59 PM PST, so you have all week to work on sending Jimmy Vegas (whoever he is) to sleep with the fishes.
