Winter 2016: Mystery Gift Bonanza

A new mechanic was added in this event: Mystery Presents, used to get some of the previous years’ returning items. Join us right after the jump for all the infos you’ll need!


By buying some items in the Mystery Gift period (some of which already have rebate on donuts too), or by tapping the Gnome In Your Home, you can get vouchers. with them you can buy Mystery Boxes that contains 1 of many returning items from previous winter events.

Note: You can open any of the Presents to complete the quest, not just the Silver one. It’s better to save the vouchers for Gold or Platinum presents if you don’t have the items there!

Note 2: If you’ve all items in the presents, this won’t appear, as they’re all unique.

Each item gives you a different ammount of vouchers:

  1. Does the order in which the prizes appear under the boxes tell you which you are likely to get as the order changes every time you click on a box.


    1. unfortunatly no it’s still chance. i added the order of chance (from higher to lower) to get an item

    No us Whales 🐳 Are rewarded by giving us the option to spend $190 on 3800 donuts to acquire bonus characters and bonus prizes. what am I supposed to do now?this is bullshit?I have purchased way too much in this game to be told I need to pay more money. I have already purchased every donut package at least once I don’t understand why I can’t be given these bonus characters and bonus prizes on a retroactive basis especially since I purchased every donut package more than once. I’m very insulted EA I’m very very insulted angry and upset by this display of shortsightedness and lack of gratitude for your long time Whales 🐋


    1. We all are! I understand your pain. Sorry that you are upset by this but we aren’t EA so unless a lot of people complain, to them, then they aren’t going to change it.
      And I think they can’t change it now because some people would have spent REAL money to get those characters and if they change it then those people are going to be very annoyed because they just wasted money.
      Sorry. We all understand

    so… I still do not see the Holiday option… could it be that I have everything already.. that is kinda disappointing… you would think they would have gifts for those of us who pay their bills.


    1. Yes if you dont see ’em you have all


      1. Michelle mauro 01/03/2017 — 16:38

        That really sucks.. especially to see over 4,000 of those “new dollars” sitting in my game and NO way to spend them… they should at the very least not remind me at every turn, that they are not letting me play this new mini event


  4. Can anyone confirm that costingtons comes with Mr.costington?


  5. I opened the silver box & was awarded the ebenezer burns skin. When I tap on burns the only skins are regular & the God Burns. Where did the ebenezer skin go???


      1. A short and sweet answer 🙂


  6. Is this a one shot deal? I opened one silver box, will you be able to open more? Can’t see any options or voucher counter though the goblin still collects more vouchers.


    1. if you’ve all other items you won’t see other
