Spawn timing

There is no way to predict exactly when the next chest spawn. However, you can make a best guess approximation and measure average time. Spawn rate depends strongly on maximum depth you have achieved. It is also affected by activity in game, if you click or scroll few times in every 30 second you have slightly higher change to spawn a chest.

In this table there are calculated average times between chest spawns. For example it will take about 11 hours to spawn next golden chest at depth of 100km. But time may vary from 2000 minutes to 40 hours. That's why golden chests are so rare. Also there are possibility that regular Treasure chest will spawn on Golden chest and Golden one will disappear. And the more time the golden chest is out the other chests will have a harder time to spawn.

Depth Treasure chest Golden chest
50km 28min 60h
100km 5min 11h
150km 3min 7h
200km 2min 4h
300km 1min 3h
500km 1min 2h
750km <1min 1h

Average time is calculated based on 30-day single run non-active gameplay
