Question & Answers
I get 500 money as my mystery box.
Why is it that when i read around, i see everyone says when they receive their mystery box they are recurring 10 donuts, however i recieve 500 money and it really sucks :(! my account has no donuts!! help!!!!
Answer from: Spiderpig
I have the same issue. have played the game everyday since it came online again and all of the 5 or so mystery boxes ive earned gave me 500bucks. i even purchased 1 box using some of my valuable earned donuts and i was awarded a bloody parking lot which is worth 175 bucks. i'd love to hear that it is possible for those of us who are dedicated enough to be able to earn enough donuts to unlock all characters/missions. isnt that the way these games normally work. you can buy ingame currency for quick satisfaction or you can play for 100s of hours for a chance to earn them.

I have the exact same problem and i think it is really annoying. how are we supposed to ever achieve enough donuts to acquire the items that may only be purchased with donuts? unless if course we buy them. seems unfair others get 10 every 5 days and all we get is 500 money and 1 donut for every level up. i think the game is full of errors all together. my boyfriend plays too and has had land taken and all his stuff moved around. i have hedges in my storage box that keep multiplying. i have about 1,5 billion as of today

I have the same problem as well, the best thing I have gotten from a mystery box is the gazebo
Answer from: Kilvo
I've been playing this game every day since the Canadian release in late February under two accounts, so that's 13 mystery boxes. One account has gotten 500 money twelve times, with the thirteenth an Angel Topiary (not sure on its worth as I'm not the level to get it.) The secondary account has gotten 10 donuts THIRTEEN times. It's never not gotten donuts. Only word I have is "ridiculous".
Answer from: Phobos
Kilvo out of curiosity what came from the mystery boxes which you purchased as opposed to the ones that you received from the daily prize?

I've only been playing a few days and only gotten 4 mystery boxes. (tutorial and three purchased) The prize on the three that weren't tutorial were the Lemon Tree (it earns money), Squeaky Voiced Teen and $500. I'm hoping to get other premium items in the future like the gazebo or an apple tree. I think only the lemon tree earns money but the others boost all the earnings of your Springfield.

My 3 mystery boxes: gazebo, 200 dollars, then Squeaky voiced teen. My girlfriend got a parking spot then lucked out with a lemon tree. None the less out of 5 we've gotten 2 premium items. Keep trying its random luck
Answer from: moleman
So far I have gotten 1 green dumpster, 2 parking lots, some large hedges, and some fence pieces out of 5 mystery boxes. Only premium item is the dumpster :-( But a friend got both the lemon tree and an angel topiary so it really is a matter of luck...
Answer from: RyanULion
I think the mystery boxes are just random. Ive received the Angel Topiary, 10 donuts 2 times, 500 cash quite a few times, a blue dumpster, and a parking meter. Another forum said if you keep your conform-o-meter at 5 stars always, you will receive better mystery box prizes. I don't know if that's accurate or not though.

I won a fence panel. But I did win 10 donuts in my first box in my last box I've just won a mystery box in the mystery box? What do I do with that any help?
Answer from: Dancemomslover

Answer from: marvinbrett
The mystery boxs suck period. i bought the more expencive one, hoping to get a premium item, but instead i got a mystery box from that. once i opened the mystery box i got a shrub.
Answer from: Popcorn
Before you click on the mystery box press the off button and hold it there then buy a mystery box if you don't like what's in there don't collect it and let go of the off button if you do like it collect it and. Go to the home page of iPad iPod whatever then let go of the off button sorry if this takes a long time
