Long-term players already know the answer to this one, so if you’ve been playing for a while, please skip over this post.

Gil is EA’s salesman and that’s his only role in the game. He’s been popping up about once a month since December 2012 to make Tapped Out players an offer too good to refuse and keep his kids from starving. He usually hangs around for a few days begging you to help out old Gil by buying discounted premium items and then he disappears until the next deal.

Personally, I wish EA could come up with a way for him to hang around between donut sales, although without constantly begging you to hand over your hard-earned real world cash. I really like him as a character and I’m sure that the developers could come up with some great tasks for him.
