The claw machine mini-game was added during the Pin-Pals update in May 2017. Note that from the 19th July 2017 update, the Sir Love-A-Lot is no longer unique. It does not have a bonus.

During the update on 1st August 2017, the following change was made:
Barbarian Statue was removed from the items obtainable from digging at the Excavation Site.
Method for using the fewest shovels to locate the gem:

Dig the squares in the order given. Stop if:
  • You uncover a gem. Lucky you! No need to go any further.
  • You uncover rocks. You're close. One square away. Dig the squares adjacent to (above or across, not diagonal) the rocks until you uncover a gem.

    The yellow submersible says it can bring stuff back too. I have never actually had to bring me anything though. Just the message that it found nothing.
  • It can be rushed for free at 1 hr 12 min, not 11.

  • I totally forgot about insanity Cauldron. Thanks for comprehensive write up @Muhsterino !

    The yellow submersible was a premium item first released March 2016. Apparently it can return with a boardwalk section or pier section tile, even if you have maxed out on making tiles.

    Technically 1 hr 11 min 59 sec so the display will only show 1 hr 11 min

  • Thank you, I forgot there were reasons to play the mini games. I never got the good stuff so just moved on. I'll give them another try.

    I calculate 6.93% for rocket launch (7/101*100)

    Oh shoot! You are correct. My apology.
  • Do you include the possibility of failure during launch? That should lower the probability.

    @Muhsterino do you have numbers for Sideshow You? I got donuts not long ago.
  • @Muhsterino do you have numbers for Sideshow You? I got donuts not long ago.
    I was told that you got them every 300th tap apparently, i'm halfway through checking this out and will let you know on May 19th if I get any :lol:
    You just had to look didn't ya!...

    This is directly copied from tstotopix:
    According to the game files, there is a 1% chance of hitting a balloon that contains 5 donuts. But that isn’t the case here. There is a 5 donut prize which you were supposed to get after playing the game 300 times. That apparently includes each balloon popped. So it’s really after 100 visits to Sideshow You.
