The Sizzling Summer event rewarded members who subscribed throughout the summer of 2012. The experience bonuses applied for people who remained members in August and were doubled if they remained subscribed throughout September. Alongside the following bonuses, many seasonal items were released for the Squeal of Fortune and Solomon's General Store. This event was similar to its forerunner, the Mad May event.
Players that had membership subscription during the month of August received one extra spin on the Squeal of Fortune. Members lasting throughout the whole of August (31 July to 1 September) were rewarded a total of 350,000 experience in the form of a Promissory note that when clicked granted several experience lamps. Furthermore, members who were subscribed to membership in September received two extra spins on the Squeal of Fortune. In addition, being subscribed to membership throughout both August and September granted a bonus of 700,000 experience at the end of September. Other rewards included, but not restricted to any amount of subscribed membership time were:
- A 5-piece tropical islander outfit
- Crab transformation emote
- Squid cape
- the Tanned title
- Seaweed Hair
Players who only started their subscription when the event was already in progress (31 August and before) were counted towards participating in "Sizzling September" if they kept membership throughout September. They also became eligible for a 350,000 experience promissory note reward at the end of September.
