CityVille Cheats and Tips: Master the Bonus Bar during friend visits

Sure, you already know how to reach "Masterful" status on CityVille's Bonus Bar: just click things really fast, duh. But did you know that you can reach "Masterful" while visiting friends, too? According to some players on the CityVille forums, this is possible, but it takes some finesse. (You'll also need a fast Internet connection. Sorry, WiFi players.)

For the uninformed, "Masterful" is the highest possible level that the Bonus Bar can reach. It's also the most difficult because of how quickly you need to collect items at that point, but if you manage, you will be reward with coins equal to 82.5 times your level. Say you're level 63 and you reach Masterful on the Bonus Bar--that's 5,198 coins in your pocket!

The major hurdle in accomplishing this during friend visits is making it so the game recognizes your Bonus Bar standing between loading your friends' cities. (You can only achieve "Amazing" while visiting one city.) However, the game often gets held up on loading both the time remaining as your Bonus Bar fills and the next destination that it just drops the bonus altogether. According to CityVille player ennui01, the best way to go about this is to "just wait until it is finished loading the bonus then move to the next neighbor."

What the player means is to wait until the bar stops moving inside the Bonus Bar, but be ready to click on the next friend to visit just as the bar stops moving. For instance, after collecting that final Heart or coin immediately click on another friend's portrait and wait for the bar to stop. Then, immediately click to visit the next friend and your bar should still appear in the upper right corner of the screen where it was, but it's then up to you to keep it going. Forum user sparky01gt claims to have achieved Masterful twice while visiting friends using this technique. How many times can you make it happen?
