With an announcement on the official Facebook page and on Twitter, EA has confirmed that the end of the Whacking Day event will be May 9.

This is what the message says:

“LAST CHANCE to earn your free Whacking Day gifts. Put your batons to work and get those snakes before the event ends on May 9.”

That probably settles the question of whether there’ll be an extension to the event. So, sometime on May 9 (and we don’t know exactly when, yet) remains the deadline we’re all working towards.

And just to answer in advance the questions I know are coming – I think the snakes and eggs will just disappear at the end of the event, as happened with the Halloween currency.
