I'm only level 8 though, perhaps the premium currency rolls out a bit more as you level?
Ok, I understand. Unfortunately it seems that there is no viable way of getting donuts outside of buying them.

I suppose the "5 day mystery box" mechanic might result in free donuts? I'm on day 5 tomorrow, did you (or anyone) get yours today?

This EA freemium game is broken in the exact same way as Theme Park:

Premium currency is too scarce & pricy, as items that can be bought with premium currency cost FAR too much. You have to spend around $50 just to get a feature building and hundreds to get them all.

EA simply has been failing to recognize an acceptable freemium model.

I got my first 5th day mystery box a couple of days back.... 10 Donuts!

Set some tires on fire. Read a post that the squeaky voice teen doesn't pay out.

I think the premium currency is competitively priced to Smurfs. That's another $50-100 game. What scares me more (and it has happened to me) is the BIG BUG that may hit you when you visit a friend.

I don't even bother with the mystery boxes. The Buddha ones contain the good stuff.
