Cards are earned by opening up Chests, which are purchased using Coins. There are several themed Card Collections, and each Collection contains nine Cards. Collect all nine Cards in a Collection and you’re rewarded with bonuses, including free Spins, a huge influx of Coin, and even Pets.
There are three kinds of Chests that you can purchase; the more expensive the Chest, the more Cards you’ll find within. The quality of the Cards you can get from a Chest is dependent on your current Village Level. One you reach the higher Village levels, you also have the chance of getting special Gold Cards from the Chests you open. Gold Cards are simply rarer versions of other cards, and their Collections offer much bigger rewards upon completion.
One of the most exciting mechanics in Coin Master is the Card Trading system. You can send up to 5 Cards to your friends every day, so it’s a good idea to join Coin Master forums and communities. Many have dedicated Card Trading sections where you can strike trading deals with other Coin Master players.
As explained above in the Cards section, Chests can be purchased from the in-game shop for Coins. All Chests can give you cards of up to 5-star quality level, but the more expensive Chests have greater odds of dropping higher quality cards. Higher level Chests also have lower odds of dropping low level cards than low level Chests, so if you’re looking for a particular 1-, 2-, or 3-star card to complete a Card Collection, you’ll want to spend Coins on lower level Chests.
You can also receive Pet Snacks, Pet XP, or bonus Spins from Chests. These are added to your inventory atop the Cards you receive so don’t affect Card drop probabilities.
Card Drop Odds by Chest
Depending on which chest you’re opening you have a greater chance of drawing a specific rarity of card. Only the Mystery, Ruby, and Valentine’s Chests have chances of dropping a Joker Card the rest do not.
The Wooden, Golden, and Magical Chests are all available starting with Village 3. The Small Lucky Chest is available at Village 4, Small Easter Chest at Village 10, Big Easter Chest and Emerald Chest at Village 20, Valentine’s Chest and Big Lucky Chest at Village 30, Viking Chest and Saphire Chest at Village 70, Fortune Chest at Village 100, Ruby Chest at Village 110, and finally the Epic Chest at Village 130.
You can see the official probabilities according to Moon Active, the developer behind Coin Master. The Bonus Spin probabilities for Mystery, Valentine’s, Small Lucky, Big Lucky, Small Easter, and Big Easter Chests are dependent on your current Village Level. Pet XP also works the same way; the higher your Village Level, the more potential Pet XP you can receive from a Chest.
The Joker Card
The Joker Card is an ultra rare card that you can earn by participating in Coin Master events or by unlocking Mystery Chests. The Joker Card has the ability to transform into any card you want, even Gold Cards. Note that Joker Cards have a time limit, so be sure to use them before they expire!
