Is "Superheroes" the Best Event Yet For Free Donuts?

Prev134
So far I have gotten more from Stonecutters but if you play a lot then this could definitely be the best for doughnuts.

    I am definitely getting lots of donuts. I don't remember getting more at any other point. I have already got 12 donuts in just 2 days and half way to another 3. I got also got 12 after the first issue.

    Well it's certainly not the best event ever to quickly get capes.

    Are people who constantly get 3 bonus donuts sometimes paying for a 2nd/3rd chance or are they using some some trick to get 3 on every initial selection?

    I've tried the "trick" roughly outlined at addicts, but it doesn't get me 3. And I don't have loads of cash so spending $150K for additional picks seems like a waste.

    So far I've gotten 2 donuts, 1 donut, and 2 donuts, from the bonus spins.

    Hallowe'en 2014 gave loads in the form of shooting down UFOs.... I got 5 lots of 30 donuts for shooting them down. But this could edge it. I got Dr Colossus a mere 6 hours ago and I'm 3400 pies into the 4000 total for a chance of 3 donuts. Should get a lot of those by the time Issue 3 rolls out.

    For donuts? I consider that to be cash well spent!

    If you got all aspirationals, all land, all buildings then sure cash is worthless. But if you are low level i wouldnt spent 150k for 2 extra donuts.

    I should have written "a waste for me." I realize that many people on this forum have 80 billion in cash and love to spend it.

    I'm still working through level 47 quest lines (although I'm technically at level 48 ). I need $150K to put towards buildings, not for getting an additional one or two donuts.

    I do not have all things, but I still pay for the extra chances. And I was low level during Halloween 2013, a huge donut bonanza, and always paid for the donuts when I could. Got me the ray gun for zero real-life dollars. Well worth it.

    I have read that until recently it was just $50K extra for another spin. Is that true? Sure, at $50K I'd probably try for more.

    Same as when you get enough XP to level up before a new level.

    It's $150k for extra spins on this event's bonus games.

    I think it's still $50k on bonus level ups. Can anyone confirm that?

    $50K for bonus level ups, but it's never been that cheap for event bonuses.

    I both reached a "bonus" level and a event bonus box today and I can confirm these figures to be accurate.

    I always go for the extra spin to max donuts. If you have to wait an additional day or two to get thru a quest line it seems well worth it to get some extra "is there anything they can't do"'s. Of course you know what they say about opinions.

    I was 7 CR away from a 5th bonus on issue 1

    I've gotten up to 76k in in pies so I've gotten 5 bonuses thusfar on issue 2 with a little more than 1k toward the next bonus.

    Can only hope the trend continues upward. Just started playing 1 year ago on Valentine's Day. Didn't discover forum life til June or July so this has been, by far & away, the best event for me. Doesn't hurt that I've been trying to maintain a schedule thru the wee hours of the AM with my former nemesis--"THE ALARM CLOCK"--aiding & abetting this venture.

    I just got my fourth post-Colossus bonus for 7 in Part 2 so far. I think that brings me to 14 or 15 total, but I forgot how many I got from Part 1.

    Unfortunately, I'm still new so I don't have the spare cash for extra chances, and am still getting all the friend prizes so I can't get the donuts that way either. Maybe by the next event. :?

    I don't see how any event will top Halloween 2013. I got easily over 100 free donuts then.

    I remember Halloween 2013 was very good for donuts, but Halloween 2014, other people shot down ufos and got 30, multiple times. I however, never did. So 2014 was based on personal "luck" not awards earned. It seems Xmas 2012 could have been, but I had just started end of November and had no neighbors to visit or visit me, so seemed good at the time due to circumstance. This event I have already gained at least 20 and anticipate at least 30 more in this issue. So personally I say this is the best.

    Edit: it should be noted, I have only had a smartphone for 3 months. Prior to that I only played when wifi was available.

    For me it's the only one I've ever got any donuts from, so yes. :D

    It is for me! I manage 3 sets of donuts a day! I have to say though, I am crap at getting the 3-donut window on the first try. Since L 50 hit I haven't been able to get the house of pancakes because every time I near the $1 mil I have to spend it on another go!
