Whats typical in the Mystery Boxes?

I don't get them often. The past two times, I won 10 donuts and the sign.
BTW, they updated the prizes, I won a bunch news vans and signs.

    They used run daily close to everyday of the week. Now, you can have tasks to complete ie 3 daily challenges to get some amount of donuts with a mystery prize in the mix. Currently I have 10 tasks to get some donuts.

    Sigh. Wish I had known that before I wasted dounts on Kerney and Squeaky Voiced Teen. I guess the boxes don't seem to be as easy to get as they used to be though so I guess I don't feel as bad.

    Jabba, once I get the unique items (the characters and the Tire Fire and the Lemon Tree), what happens to the odds when I get a mystery box? Like, what are my odds THEN of getting a multiplier-item (Itchy & Scratchy billboard, News Van)

    Is it proportional to the original odds for those non-unique items? (Did that make any sense? ) :shock:

    You can buy the boxes for 6 donuts. The first item under the premium section is Mystery Box.

    What happens after Kearney & Co. are no longer in the box? --> The chalmers car takes over all those other slots and dominates the mystery box like Alexander the Crate. It allies itself with Minnow Pond and Klav Kavesh as the new Axis Powers of Disappointment. This may be "anecdotal" evidence, but the realness of it is hard and real, I mean it's a totally stiff anecdote that has haunted and concussed me often and repeatedly as I get hit with onda after onda.

    One ray of sunshine though is the 30 donuts have always seemed more likely than 1% over my entire mystery box history.

    Anyone know what are the revised odds are of me getting Kearney. From a mystery box are?

    I say revised, since I have already won all the other one off prizes like the lawyer, teen, lemon tree and the tyre fire.

    Guess that you got my bit of extra % on the 30 donuts chance lol, as all the time that the misery box has been available I've never won the 30 donuts prize and only got the 10 about 3 times, but I've got enough Onda's to set up several dealerships lol :)

    I bought a dozen of these the other day..mostly because I was bored. Someone please tell me what is so special about the Lard Lad. That thing is a space hog.
    2 I& S, 1 pond, 1 news van, 1 bomb shelter, 1 car, 3 lad lard, 1 KK stand, 2 ten donuts
    I don't know why they don't change the prizes in these occasionally, or up the cost with a second option with better prizes for those of us who already have all the good stuff...just common sense marketing. :roll:

    Here is a thread from last year which may help, someone posted the possible percentage chances of items once you have all the unique items:

    Sometimes you get a bad streak. I decided to blow 60 donuts to push my multiplier up a little so I won't be taking as big of a hit when I start packing up some of the SH buildings. Technically I spent 90 because I went slightly over 60 and kept pushing until I hit the 30 prize, which put me right at only missing 60 donuts from what I started with. But today I got -

    2 Lard Lads (went right into storage, since I'm done farming KEMs, I'm done with my LL farm)
    3 Billboards
    2 News vans

    Everything else was pretty much crap I sold off.

    You have an 11.48% chance of getting Kearney now with each mystery box. Also, those initial percentages given by Jabba0the0hutt are wrong.
