Deep in another world, you have been tasked with the job of building up a village from scratch. With nothing but the walls and a nice chunk of land, you must create farms, raise animals, and construct buildings sustainable of life. But, how are you to make any money? Well, with the simple press of a magical button, the slot machine in the sky will allow you to either earn a fair wage, steal in the cover of darkness, or plunder from other players. With many chances bestowed upon you from the sky, use the slot machine to gain gold, and with that gold, build your city into a sprawling skyline. Welcome to Coin Master, where you control the coin!
Coin Master is what I would consider to be a simple idle farming game. With almost no hardcore mechanics or difficult concepts, everything is very straightforward. Collect gold in various forms to build up your city. As you build up, make sure to protect yourself as well, as well as making sure you make yourself less vulnerable against attacks. There are plenty of ways to do this, so I will be going over each and every way you can earn gold, as well as how to defend yourself.
Coin Master Strategy – The Essential Guide for Beginners
To start, there are multiple ways to gain income. For starters, let’s go over the slot machine. The slot machine in the sky is a simple machine. There are approximately six different combos that can be created in the machine: Coin, Thief, Shield, Energy, Plunder, and Large Gold.
Coin refers to the gold coin that you can spin and land on. When landed on, this icon will give you a decent amount of gold that stacks when combo’d. If you do combo the coin, or gain three in a row of this icon, you will gain a multiplied amount, sometimes between 20,000-50,000 gold. If not, the payout is around 2,000-10,000 for one or two coins in a row. This is seen as the most basic of the combos, and you will generally get this more often than not.
Large Gold is represented by a large pouch of gold coins. This icon has the same concept as the coin, but in a much larger amount. If spun, you will receive a grand payout, and if you combo it, you will receive sometimes amounts numbering into the hundreds of thousands. Landing these means you will almost always be guaranteed an upgrade in your city. Thus, landing on these is considered quite lucky.
Energy refers to the number of spins you can get each day. At the start of each 25-minute period, you will gain 5 spins on the machine. These spins recharge automatically, but take so long, meaning that you will be bored for the next few minutes until you can spin again with the free energy. The Energy combo will give you a set amount of spins back for free, that you can use once again to keep spinning the machine. Although it won’t give you gold, it will give you chances to gain another large gold bag.
Plunder is the ability to raid other people’s towns for gold. Represented by a lighting hammer much like Thor’s, it allows you to raid another player’s home once, and attempt to break their town in hopes of gaining gold. Now, although you generally get around 100,000-150,000 from it, sometimes the shield will be there to protect them, which in that case you will get a reduced value. But, it is still an amazing spin, and gets you quite a bit.
Shield is the defensive mechanism of the game. A shield allows you to shelter your town from attack, and makes sure you don’t get gold stolen away as well. You can have 3 shields at one time, so that means you can protect yourself three times before the enemy can start destroying your buildings. If you already have three shields at once, you will not be able to spin another combo, so don’t think about it.
Thief is represented by a big in a thief mask. This is similar to the plunder ability, but allows you to bypass the shields, instead going straight for the loot. But, instead of a set amount, you have the ability to choose from around four different zones to try to steal. Some of the areas have gold, while others have absolutely nothing, so the thief combo is a double-edged sword. Make sure to guess randomly!
Useful Game Tips & Tricks
Lastly, a good tip to ensure you won’t get hit as much is to always use your gold as fast as possible. As soon as you earn gold, spend it on upgrades, so that your coffers are quite empty. Although you will still get raided since they get gold from killing your buildings, there won’t be as much for them to take, as they also take a percentage of the gold in your bank at that time.
As you completely upgrade your cities, you will be able to move on to the next town. This is known as the level up, and you can continue to repeat this process over and over. Each progressive upgrade will increase your values that you gain from the spins of the slot machine, so make sure to keep powering yourself up.
These are just a few tips and tricks to Coin Master. Make sure you continue to try to compete against others, and make your way to the final Coin Master status by hoarding your gold and continuing to upgrade cities. Good luck, and happy spinning!
