I've also got Robodog for 58,200. I'll do it half-heartedly as I still have a couple of pet slots in my hobby/event houses - I figure if I fill these with robodogs/robocats I can hopefully collect the odd LP from pets during events. Although I really wish they would add other pets as prizes!

Always great when you get something you were wishing for.

Just curious, is it possible to win the grand prize (or even the last prize before the grand prize) without spending SPs to unlock the three additional shipping thingies?

I've only tried playing the first marketplace event and I feel like I babysat the game and still got nowhere close to winning even the first prize, let alone one of the big ones that I might want. I'm not even sure how the whole thing works (like what the heck are coins used for?) but I haven't spent too much time trying to learn because I was so frustrated the first time I played. I'm still trying to build my professions so I'm not sure I'd want to spend resources on a prize I don't have a chance of winning without unlocking the other spots on the shipping screen.

I’ve gotten the grand prize more than once and never unlocked the extra slots. And I wouldn’t bother with the event if you’re still trying to complete and upgrade your professions. You need to babysit the game during these events and you’ll use less resources when everything is done. The very resources you need to earn the prize are the ones you require for your stations. If you want to wrap this up sooner have multiple sims for each profession.

I have unlocked total 4 slots and I usually finish marketplace in 2 days :)
My workplaces are all over 90% upgraded and I've never spent SPs on the event. I use tokens given by courier guy a lot. So if I had only had e.g. 1 slot, it would have taken 4times the time to finish the event i.e. 8 days..so yup it's possible because more days means more courier tokens too ;)
