Salutations Senors, Senoras, Senoritas, Statisticians & Strategists,
(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter ‘S’)
Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as KEM Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.
What better way to spend your time than talking math. So from time-to-time, I’ll come to you with a post that delves into the wonderful world of numbers, stats, and/or strategies.
While we’ve previously discussed Springfield Downs and the Go Kart Track a couple months ago, over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to look at most of the Minigames found within our game. After discussing Claw Machine yesterday, we continue our journey today with the Scratch-R!

The Kwik-E-Mart Scratch-Rs are a fun addition to the game and come in two types. You can purchase the free Scratch-R, that will cost you $250 game dollars, or you can purchase the Golden Scratch-R for $0.99 (real life dollars). The difference being the Scratch-R awards you with game dollars and the Golden Scratch-R awards you with donuts. The best news? No matter which one you choose, every Scratch-R is a winner!
Here are the Basics:
The Scratch-R game is available to play free (well $250 game dollars) at the Kwik-E-Mary every 6 hours and it offers a range of game dollar prizes from $350- $10,000. While every ticket is a winner, not every ticket is a big winner.
Here are the odds:
$10,000- 1/100 (or 1%)
$2,500- 1/24 (or 4%)
$1,250- 1/10 (or 10%)
$750- 1/5 (or 20%)
$500- 1/3 (or 32%)
$350- 1/3 (or 33%)
The Golden Ticket…er Scratch-R:
The Golden Scratch-R is currently the cheapest, real money, option to purchase donuts. For $0.99/ea ($0.99 buys you 1 Scratch-R and 1 Scratch-R only) these are also purchased from the Kwik-E-Mart and offers a range of donut prizes from 6-100 donuts! While every ticket is a winner, not every ticket is a big winner.
Here are the odds:
100 donuts- 1/50 (at 2% these are better odds than winning $10,000 on the other Scratch-R)
50 donuts- 1/25 (or 4%)
20 donuts- 1/10 (or 10%)
12 donuts- 1/5 (or 20%)
9 donuts- 1/3 (or 32%)
6 donuts- 1/3 (or 32%)
Obviously it’s cheaper than buying from the donut store, but is it better?
Yes, slightly. It breaks down like this. The cheapest option in the donut store is a dozen donuts (12) for $1.99 and the Golden Scratch-R is $0.99. Even if you only win 6 donuts the first try and buy another one for $0.99 and still win 6 donuts, that’s $1.98 spent for 12 donuts. So it’s $0.01 less than buying a dozen donuts from the store. So if you’re feeling lucky you might want to look into buying a Golden Scratch-R. After all you can’t do any worse than if you were to buy the donuts from the store and you might get lucky and win a lot more than 6 donuts!
What do you say? Are you feeling lucky enough to try your luck at the Itchy and Scratch-Rs? You never know you just might win enough donuts to buy Arnie Pye and his Pye in the Sky helicopter!
