Angry Birds Seasons Go Green, Get Lucky Golden Egg #8 Walkthrough

Golden Egg #8, or better known as the “Big Pot o’ Gold” is unlocked after you obtain 3 star all levels of Angry Birds Seasons Go Green, Get Lucky. Once you’ve accomplished this goal, tap the pot in the middle of the Golden Egg screen to open up the level below. To obtain the star, wait for the piles of gold coins to pop themselves, then snipe the big leprechaun pig with a Red bird.

You can get a few thousand more points on the pot of gold level if you wait a bit. The coins undergo some sort of radioactive decay and will eventually all “pop”. Then fire your bird to get the piggy.

All 18 levels completed with three stars; golden egg and “pot o’ gold” completed. What’s next?

Just pure fun as ever!

Update: score on “pot o’ gold” 66830; score on all 18 levels: 1648340. How do I rate?

Actually I had misread that. For some reason I thought it was 1,750,000. But I just hit 1,737,000+ on my break at work. It’s actually a pretty attainable threshold. Good luck!

yeah 1,735,000 is a bit random. Maybe supposed to be 17 March??? the 173 bit – and they decided 1,730,000 was too low so upped it a bit. Cheers Rovio! lol

By ambersand

The same thing is happening to me. I achieved 3 stars on all levels (including the Facebook levels) and cleared the golden egg from level 8, but none of the stars are lit on my pot of gold. I’m playing on the iPad 1, and, after clearing EVERY other Angry Birds egg/star level currently available to play (Rio, Seasons, Original AB through the Ham Em High episode), this is the only thing I can’t seem to get to work. (And yes, my device has been reset several times since I originally completed the rest of the Go Green episode over a moth ago!)
I see others have had the same issue but no followups on if/how it was fixed. Does Rovio have a list of known bugs anywhere that I can check?

By Nattles

Nice to know it’s not just me but still very frustrating!!

The stars don’t light up until after you beat the level. Having 18×3 stars unlocks it, not lights.

She did, they actually sent her here for help. I’ve seen this issue before, but only when the highscores.lua is copied from one device to another. If you don’t transfer the settings.lua file the Pot ‘O Gold level (or any other 3 star Golden Egg levels) won’t open.

Nattles, if that isn’t the case, have you tried doing a soft reset (i.e. double tap the home button, then hold down the icon and close Angry Birds completely)?

I did tweet them earlier but they just directed me to this site which I had already found anyway! I have emailed support@rovio.com now. Thanks!

Sorry – thanks for the pointer! I was replying on my phone and it was a bit fiddly! I have not copied any data to or from the phone – all I do is sync it with my macbook.

Do you mean I should delete the app from the phone?

Thanks all for your replies and help!

Rank: Pig Leader with 11145 points
By FujiToast (@fujitoast)

No, noo. Don’t do that. That will delete your progress in the game, making you VERY unhappy. One thing I guess if you are bored and/or a score addict anyway is try replaying each level until you get three stars on each one again, preferably and hopefully higher. And actually I’d start with 18 and go back. Maybe one of them just didn’t register or something. I’ll really just speaking out of my rear, but it’s what I would try. Good Luck.

By Nattles

Hi Thanks for the reply. I replayed level 18 and got a higher score but still nothing. I had a reply from Rovio asking me what device I was using so fingers crossed they may have an answer.

By kari

Thanks! I have 3 stars on all levels including facebook levels but didn’t know to hit the pot of gold and now I can’t get the pot of gold to come back (it’s there when it says “total domination – you achieved 3 stars on all levels.” Any ideas?

There only appears to be one golden egg once you get to the Pot of Gold screen (3rd page). When playing that golden egg, it shows it’s #7. Easter picks up at #9. Where’s the #8 golden egg?

I have exactly the same problem. I remember having completed that gold pot bonus level once in the past, but now it shows no stars and can’t click on it. I have 54/54 stars on GGGL, of course.

Posting once is sufficient. No duplicate posting, please.

As noted in the PC Seasons release post, the Facebook/Twitter levels that appear in some episodes are not currently available for Mac or PC. This may change in the future, but it is simply the way for now.

I think I got the highest score because I didn’t wait for the coins to pop by themselves. You get additional points if you hit the coins with the bird. If you still don’t believe me after seeing my screenshot, try this to test my score – using as many birds as needed, take out everything in the pot while letting as few coins as possible pop by themselves. Then, add 10K to your score for each bird used over 1. For example, I used two birds and got a score of 58,630. If I add 10K to this for the 1 extra bird used, my score would be 68,630, which is 60 points higher than my score with one bird. So I think it is possible to even get slightly higher than my score.
