Free donuts are hard to come across in the game, but there are some ways to earn them. If you save up all of the free donuts you’ve earned, you might even be able to buy yourself something nice down the road. So how many ways are there to earn free donuts? More than you might think, but most of them require long-term play and the patience to actually save them. If you only have a couple of donuts, you might be inclined to buy something cheap or rush a task, but if you hold-off on small purchases, you could eventually get something worth your while.
Every time you level up, you get either 1 or 2 donuts, depending on the level. It’s not a huge bonus, but with the frequency of updates increasing, this could be an easy way to build-up your donut inventory without much effort. If you count up all of these free donuts from the start of the game to now, it equates to 44 donuts.
The odds suggest that you have a 1:100 shot of earning five donuts every time you play the Sideshow You game in Krustyland. It certainly isn’t the most reliable way to win donuts, but it does at the very least give you a reason to visit Krustyland after you finish the forty-one part quest line.
To unlock the secret Jebediah Statue, all you have to do is tap on Homer ten times and this secret item will be unlocked, as well as a ten donuts. If you’re wondering how this secret was found, promotional videos for the game advertised this secret as way to encourage newcomers to try the game.
At first three gift boxes will appear, containing either one, two, or three donuts. The goal is to choose the one that has three donuts inside. Even if you don’t find it on your first try, you can spend $50,000 to open up another box. If you still don’t find the three donut prize after two tries, you can spend an additional $50,000 to open up the last remaining box and secure you three donut prize.
As you purchase new plots of land, there will be debris on those new tiles. The only two characters in the game who can clean-up the debris are Homer and Lisa. Once the debris is cleaned-up you will earn some cash and XP, and if you’re very lucky, a donut. There is only a 2% chance of finding a donut in debris, so it varies from player to player. Some people have reported being very successful in finding donuts in debris, while other players have not been as lucky.
Every five days in a row you play, you’ll get a Mystery Box. While the prizes inside the Mystery Box usually aren’t that great, there is a 2% chance that you will win 10 donuts. Be careful though, the few times I’ve actually won this prize the game crashed without saving. So if you find donuts in a Mystery Box, make sure to quickly exit out of the game yourself.
It is possibly to earn 30 donuts, or a Homer Buddah from a Mystery Box as well, though it is rare to have that happen. Theoretically you could open a Mystery Box to find a Homer Buddah, and inside the Homer Buddah you could find 150 donuts. Though the odds of that happening are astronomical.
In very rare instances, you may earn some donuts at the end of a quest line. The last time this happened was during the Level 30 content update. By finishing “Military Antiques Pt. 9″, players were rewarded with three donuts.
There are also times when the developers will reward players with some donuts just for logging-in on a certain day. During the Whacking Day event, players who logged-in on April 23, 2013 were given twelve free donuts. Many have speculated that this was due to false advertising. During the event it claimed that some snake eggs may contain donuts, but no one ever reported actually finding a donut inside a snake egg.
In the beginning of the game you are given donuts to get you through the tutorial quickly, but you don’t have to spend them if you don’t want to. Sure, it will slow down the tutorial and make you wait a few hours to finish it, but you’ll be glad you saved the donuts for something better than rushing the construction of the Kwik-E-Mart.
