The latest update kept the Scratch cards at the Kwikimart, but introduced a new twist – the Golden Scratch-R. But beware – this game costs you real world cash.

The Golden Scratch-R gives you the chance to win donuts. But, it’s your real world money that pays for it, not game dollars. Clicking on the Golden Scratch-R is a micro-transaction in the same way that a donut transaction is (and luckily you get a chance or two to change your mind). And if you decide to go ahead, this is what you see:

Scratch away and you stand the chance to win big – or win just a little. A bit disappointingly, I won just a little:

And your regular scratch game now tells you that you the donut equivalent you could have won with a Golden Scratch!

Remember, though, it’s a gamble – and like real world scratch cards, it’s a gamble with real world cash.

I paid once for the scratch card… but strange thing, I never got charged?! I won 6? Donuts it was very little but its been 2 weeks and have yet to see a charge to my bank account.

Hi – I think you got lucky ðŸ™‚

Not worth it. Better buy donuts then this!!!!!!!

Well, it’s not that much like gambling in the sense that – at least if it works like the normal Scratch-R – you get at least as many donuts as you would if you bought them, right? I mean, if you buy the cheapest set of donuts, 12 donuts, you pay â‚¬1,79, and that’s double the amount of donuts that you get with the worst result on the Golden Scratch-R, and double the price of it too. So if you can’t afford to buy a truckload of Donuts, but just need another dozen do complete the amount of donuts for that premium building you’re saving to buy, might make sense to try the Golden Scratch and get some extra donuts for the same price!

Thanks for that Lais – in fact I was planning to do a post tomorrow on this, but it looks like you’ve done my work for me! ðŸ™‚

The gambling comment was half-joking because you’re absolutely right – in the worst case, you pay the going rate and in many cases, you’ll get more donuts than you would have doe if you’d bought them through the donut store!

=) It was totally worth it for me! I just needed 10 more donuts to buy the Springfield Observatory that I had been wanting for a long time, and I really didn’t want to spend much money. This was the first time I spent money with the game, 0,89 for a ticket and got the jackpot! Really lucky! I don’t plan on trying my luck again, though!

Until today I had never spent any real money on this game but today I bought five golden tickets – my way of paying for the months of fun I have already had with it. My prizes were as follows: Ticket 1: 50 donuts; Ticket 2: 12 donuts; Ticket 3: 100 donuts; Ticket 4: 6 donuts & Ticket 5: 12 donuts. Total # of donuts: 180. Total cost to me: $4.95. Now I have Frink’s lab and the TV satellite.

Is it for unlimited use??

No – it’s 99c/69p a time ðŸ™‚

Was lucky too, won 50 donuts to buy the Grampa’s Billboard ðŸ™‚

got 6 dougnuts 1st time and then 9 in 2nd and 3rd tries ðŸ˜¦ not really worth it, if you ask me ðŸ™‚

With my luck, that’s how I feel about a lot of gambling!

4th try got me 50 sweet juicy doughnuts ðŸ˜€

So for roughly 4,2 USD I got 74 doughnuts.

Unbelievable luck for me – after jackpot on the regular scratcher this morning, my first golden scratcher – 100 donuts. I am now the proud owner of Krustylou Studios.

That’s great! ðŸ™‚

Well, I bought a Golden Scratch-r and won 20 donuts. Could have been better, could have been worse. Looking at the break-out of donut prices, it never makes sense to purchase the dozen donuts for $1.99 (not that it was EVER a good deal). As, for $0.99 you can get a Golden Scratch-R and you are guaranteed at least 6 donuts. So if you are itching to spend $1.99, get two Golden Scratch-R’s instead, as the worst that can happen is you will get 12 donuts but more likely you will get between 12 and 200 donuts.

Thanks for that, Renosis ðŸ™‚

Is it .99 every time you scratch the ticket?

Or the equivalent in local currency – yes, it costs that every time you scratch.
