Question & Answers
Have you paid to open chest? (Closed)
I have only opened the treasure chests that were free. Some pop up and they're asking thousands of coins to open them, and really odd amounts like 6920. I'm wondering if anyone has paid to open these and if it was worth it? If I spend the money am I going to get like 200 algae or something ridiculous? Much like the super expensive enigmatic seed that gave me a seaweed.... I've also given up on spending much algae to feed the fish - it's not worth it for some of those really expensive ones, holy cow!

I have paid coins to open up the chest. sometimes it gives you double that amount back, sometimes a measely amount, sometimes a modest amount of algae (which is always appreciates) and sometimes PEARLS! I think it's worth it.

Yes, I did open a lot but now opening the free ones only. Lost a lot of sand$ and pearls. But someone else wrote they are plus on pearls.
Answer from: OZ
I have always opened the chests. Usually results in a nice gain (e.g. 6 pearls gets you 14), but sometimes will be painful (e.g. 6 pearls gets you 400 algea). I think the ratio of good to bad is probably at least 2:1. Kind of a gamble, but net-net it has worked in my favor.

These are some I have opened. I have too many SD$ at the moment so can afford to open all chests, but I am not too convinced that it is generally worth it.

I gained 31 pearls sat and 26 one day last week, one chest was 2 pearls to open and gave me 26... I have lost pearls but if you calculate what you get in one day it's worth it. Where I lose the most is sand dollars. I also think the fish are worth it I only feed the ones up to 10,000 but that is like 12 pearls every 3 days. I have a lot of algae though so I can afford it.

Omg, I'm getting SO ripped off! I used to be so excited to see a treasure chest, and now I'm not, it's stressing me out. I started paying for them with SD, but not pearls bc I don't have enough pearls. But I've lost thousands and thousands of dollars and hardly gotten anything in return! For example, over 7000 SD for 900 or so algae. At each one, I'd think, this one will make up for all the other ones, but I'm just not getting the big playoffs you all are.

I am noticing that when one treasure chest is floating around, there is usually another one nearby. this is really nice when one opens only if you use pearls, but floating around at the same time is a free one! so when you see one, click on it, do what you want and then zoom quickly around for another!
Answer from: Bonnie
I open all the free one's. always a good idea. I often open the one's for thousands and get pearls or ripped off. It's worth the risk to get pearls if you have plenty of sand dollars. I haven't spent pearls yet but it is tempting.
Answer from: Raytell
Most of the ones the you pay for in pearls give back more pearls.
