REMIND TO CHECK DONUT CONFIRMATION BUTTON.

TSTOTopix Checked the files and...
there is a 1 in 200 chance of winning a donut while doing action in friends' cities. This includes placing or clearing up graffiti, or tapping on buildings or farms


That's pretty awesome! Thanks for the info :D

    That's pretty cool. Shame I beat the odds to not get one today, having tapped 300 times and not finding one...

    The 1 in 200 odds probably means those are the odds, per tap, every time. Not that you're likely to get 1 in 200 taps. If that makes sense...

    Oh I understand what that means. Each one is an independent chance. Basically, the odds of NOT getting a donut for each chance are 99.5% if it's 1 in 200. The odds of getting zero donuts for 300 taps is the product of each independent observation (I'm forgetting stats terms, been a while since I took a class), which comes out to 22.2292%. Which means that supposedly, if you visit 100 friends every day, you should get at least one donut 77.7708% of the time.

    If the 1 in 200 odds are accurate.

    So per 870 possible taps daily, on average how many doughnuts would you say we well get/day?

    I know, it's weird, some peoples seem to switch off after an update but mine never has. Maybe it's what device you are on? Still a good reminder, thanks

    Where do you get the 870 taps daily? 100 friends x 3 taps per friend = 300 taps daily. Which means that you should average out to 10-11 donuts per week (.5% x 2100 taps). It will likely be a little higher for some lucky folks, a little lower for people like me. Also, uncertain whether it's 1 in 200 per tap or per total visit to a friend.

    Think I got confused with the total amount of friend points you can get per day.
    Thanks, though!

    It also includes cleaning up graffiti in your own town, but that still doesn't add up to 870.

    TSTOTopix: Upon further reading of the code, it looks like you only get the chance for donuts after getting all of the Friend Level Prizes. Makes sense, keeps you visiting friends after you get them all. Sorry for getting everyone’s hopes up! :(

    I know it switches off if you do a full uninstall. So people waiting for the update think they need to fully uninstall in hopes of downloading the new update. So there's that.

    I've never seen it switch during an update.
