One of the other updates while I was on vacation is pro racing, which is a feature now available in the stadium.
You can only run pro races if you own and wear the entire pro athletic clothing set (shoes, vest and shorts) from the Pet Society cash shop. These three items cost a total of 45 playfish cash coins. If you wear all three items, then you can run one pro race per day. The pro races are very tough and give you the chance of winning 200 gold coins per race.
What’s interesting is that even though pro races require you to spend playfish cash coins (blue coins), you have a chance of winning only regular gold coins not more playfish cash.
Have any of you paid to run pro races? Do you think it’s worth it?
Personally, I wish there were some new features added to the stadium that involved other sports besides running hurdles, and I wish these features were open to all players, not just those willing to spend real money on the game.
I also noticed another change in the stadium. The old advertisements along the wall of the stadium for other Playfish games (Word Challenge and Who Has the Biggest Brain?) are gone. In there place are pictures from Pet Society. One of the pictures shows a pets playing sports and cheerleading.
