Golden Scratch-Rs

Golden Scratch-R
Every ticket is a winner!
$0.99
Jackpot 100 donuts

Players may purchase a “Golden Scratch-R” ticket from the Kwik-E-Mart for $0.99 (£0.69), which gives them the chance to win between 6 and 100 donuts. Outside of buying donuts directly, this is the only other part of the game where real money can be used for in-app purchases.

In the short-term, this may seem like the best option for purchasing donuts, but it’s not. The statistics prove that in the long run you will eventually hit a point of diminishing return. So while you may hit the jackpot every so often, you won’t get lucky all the time. Much like gambling, you need to know when to walk away.

As you can see from the chart below, the more Golden Scratch-R tickets you buy, the more money and donuts you’ll lose over time. It may not feel that way, but the proof is in the statistics. This option should be used occasionally, not as the primary way to purchase donuts. The only time it is better to buy a Golden Scratch-R over donuts, is if you only plan on spending two dollars. The lowest prize equates to 12 donuts, which is what two dollars will buy you anyway.
