# Donut Boxes Are Scammy

I think anyone playing for a long time and KEM farming for donuts have felt like getting a single donut in a box seems to happen a lot. In order to test whether it comes up more I kept track over hundreds of openings while only choosing the middle box and I got 1 donut 66.6% of the time or 2/3. This should have only happened 33.3% of the time. Having three options implies that the user has an equal chance of getting one, two or three donuts. At the very least in a game where said prizes are also available for real world money I think accurate odds should be made extremely clear in game. Has anyone else tested this? Very disappointed in the Simpsons virtual 3 card monty.

-edit- come to think of it. i mistrust ops percentages. while not impossible 2/3 exactly is highly extremely unlikely.

everybody gets sequences of 3,4 or even 5 single donuts and this injustice tends to linger in your mind.

relax, even the single ones are free.

I never tracking, always forget.

But, I have the impression that I get more often 2 or 3.

Of course, 1 in the row are not pleasant.

and after that, whatever you do, you get a nice string of single donuts

Agree!

unless you are short on igm and buying it. but that is stretching reasoning.

Nope. Always feels random and fair to me.

notpick the middle. It's the left or right that have the good odds. There's three boxes, you seriously can't determine chance without examining all three boxes equally. You've done a run of over a hundred, now find that exact number and run the same on the left box, and another hundred+ on the right box. Then you'll be able to get your average.Anyways, I usually pick the left or right, but I never stick with one box for that long. I think the game is designed for trying to pick the box that has 3 donuts....not just for crossing your fingers and hoping the middle box always has 3 donuts. Play the game right and then we'll talk numbers.

For me, I can get 2 or 3 donuts pretty frequently...as long as I'm "trying". Good luck!

If you get 2 and pick again and get 1, you still keep the 2, so the only risk is losing the 50k

i've read somewhere that if you speak well of EA on the forum it improves your odds and that it is a cumulative thing. something to keep in mind.

Well done EA!!

Thanks !!
