    This is how the piggy bank looks like





    The icon appears at the offer hub while the Piggy Bank is active, and the offer will last for a varying number of days.




    You will get items dropped by harvesting fields.

    We have checked this out and BugsBunny originally said 5 days as that was the example shown to us

    Its duration will vary.

    This first run of the Piggy bank will stay until the 2ist of May

    And here I was going to guess mine was a glitch from the event starting while I was logged on.

    Any clue if it stacks with other offers, like coop match?

    My 1st thought of this is event is; now we see why they made the lab to offer SS to at the lowest level. It appears this event will really favor those players who choose to have more fields on their main farms than other things. I mean a player with 50 fields can do quite a bit more than my 11 fields. Especially if they purchase that package that includes the repeat harvester.

    Question do you have to purchase the gold in piggy bank then or can you wait until the bank is full? Or is it only with bank showing? Will I loose the coins if I don't buy them this time? Just trying to make sure don't loose them..lol
  • RosyStarlingRosyStarling Moderator, ModGreen Posts: 2,190
    You can wait until you achieve the maximum.
    If you haven't got the maximum by the end of the event  you can still purchase the minimum before the event is over. 
    So keep an eye out until an hour or two before the end.
      
     

      
  • So when I reach the max, 26,000 piggy bank tokens, that means 26,000 gold for $5?
    If so, oh..okay.. I thought I would be able to trade in piggy banks for gold, instead of spending real money...
    Good deal for people who spend money I guess

    Yeah , well mathematically

    The offer is quite good, 26.000 gold for 5$ , is pretty much a sale at 300%

    So its not bad for someone who just wants to drop a few dollars, without spending a crazy amount

    You get a pretty decent return :)

    Btw for Free players , We have a system like that for everyone, Its called Lab level 100 , And Accumulating the legendary Catalysts until the lab is level 100 :)

    My Lab is currently level 71 ( it takes a bit of diamonds yeah , will need patience ) But i have already accumulated enough legendary catalysts to transform 18.000 gold when it will make it to level 100

    And it should build up as it goes :D

    Whoa... how do you earn enough cash to level that up so much... (fish, and now jam? I guess?...)
    My lab is only level 10... and even getting to that, I thought was expensive lol.

    I used to be able to get the 50th place in competitions where the gold mining certificate was the reward.. but I haven't been able to do that for a long time now... Now, besides the daily login bonuses that give 30 gold, leveling up that gives 50, the only way I've been earning gold has been those lucky random gold reward from finding the Leprechaun during that event, or the Lucky Cat or w/e from the Golden Week event.

    Edit:

    Not sure if this is supposed to happen... piggy has escaped his box lol

    Well, Laboratory at level 30 , Only cost Diamonds to upgrade , No more dollars

    So its a bit much more manageable , You only need dollars up to level 30 :) ( it can be a bit costly if u are low level )

    Ooo good to know, thanks!
    I'm level 377.. but spending so many millions seems like so much to me =X

    On topic... piggy keeps flying higher and higher lol

    if you're looking for rewards that give gold;
    Regular old mystery boxes give gold too, there is about a 1% chance of finding a GML, and around a 3% chance of finding 300 gold pieces.
    The new style of gold mystery boxes give around a 5% chance of finding gold pieces, but that will only be either 50 or 100 pieces.
    The new style of green boxes give goldflower seeds too, but there's only about 1/2 of a percent probably of getting one of those.
    The old style of gold mystery boxes award goldflower seeds and GML, but I do not have enough data to give a good %. It is harder to come across this style of box anymore.
    The plain old-fashioned regular mystery boxes are still the best chance of gold reward in this category.

    I think there was a thread somewhere by Ninjahuman, Resuming all the places you can find gold in game

    @Heather Norsk (US1)

    Yup, Ordinary mystery boxes are the most underrated reward in the game, But each box is approximately worth 35 Gold 

    So lets say , you get 10 as reward , I see it as a 350 gold reward

    Also , There is the Fortune Teller tent , That you can hit once per day , the one that costs 100 Gold , You have approximately 95% chance to get 200 Gold back, and earn 100 Gold

    @Exxy (INT1)
    I'm sorry, but how do you find that is more manageable?  It takes forever to get diamonds now to upgrade other buildings, so it makes it more difficult to upgrade the lab now past level 30 since it's no longer with cash (IMHO). Unless you have figured out good tactics on getting more diamonds than 12-20k/week at DW (if one has time to work them), and some from the FL too.
  • Exxy (INT1)Exxy (INT1) INT1 Posts: 2,602
    Yeah, diamonds are not that easy to earn , I always save up 26K gold, to buy the pass for FL to get extra's there

    And to be honest, All my diamonds are going into the lab , even if all other buildings could use it , just see it more profitable to focus on Lab

    Might be the first time, but I agree with Exxy, it IS more manageable than it had been. It just doesn't make sense to me to have more than one lab.

    In the 3 weeks I've been upgrading my lab from diamonds it has gone up 28 levels - I saved enough cash in that time that I could have done one upgrade the old way. I should be able to do about 4 levels per week from DW diamonds.

    I know the low level labs I demolished also were asking less than 1/3 the farm cash for the next upgrade.

    I think we took a turn off topic.

    I guess, I must have misread the Piggy Bank update.  I maxed out the piggy bank and bought the gold for $5.00 USD.  As soon as I did that the piggy bank disappeared.  I was ready to fill it again.  Will it come back? Or is that it for the event?  Just wondering.

    One day of missions and the piggybank is full. Now I need to know if it is right understood that if I use the 36,99 Dkr will I then get 26.000 gold ?? When I click the bank it does NOT tell me how much gold I am buying. Needs a clarification here .

    Right you are. Mine doesn't tell me how much gold I would be buying.

    I found the info from OpenBucks concerning my purchase in my email (spam section).  Have you checked there?

    I know this isn't the correct thread (probably) for this discussion... I'm sorry to hear that you had trouble (but relieved I'm not alone) as it didn't accept mine either.... I reported my issue to support earlier today.... just in case.  :/

    @davidharrell (US1)
     it's on the home page just near the top of the page..... :)






    UPDATE:      I might suggest you try to process payment again (if you haven't already) ~ I just tried it again and either the glitch has been fixed or enough time passed that it let me in to try again and it was successful!!!
