Mr. Mine Wiki

Chests can be earned by completing quests, found while mining, can be bought with tickets, earned from scientist excavations and be traded in a trading post.

Chests are found by miners. The deeper you go the more miners you have & the more chances of a chest being found. Chests even spawn while at full capacity. Gold chests are the rarest and have a 1/158 drop chance. They contain the best rewards but it could take a long time to get what you want from them. Chests have timers so it's best to check every 5-10 minutes for them before they expire as you wouldn't want to miss a gold one.

2.56% (do not have heal HP give heal HP;under 10 tickets give 20;)

if the above fails give a 6 hour timelapse give time travel(weapon); already have timetravel give 6 hour timelapse

Money reward equation for Golden Chest is depth*depth*depth*(depth*.2)*10*(1+(Math.random()*7))

For example if you are at a depth of 100km the minimum amount of money would be $200,000,000 and maximum amount would be $1,600,000,000.

Depth or oil:

  • +3 depth when you haven't reached depth of 40km
  • +1 depth when you haven't reached depth of 603km
  • oil after when you have reached depth of 603km, amount depends on your oil pump level

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.
