Presents Window

Winter Button
To access the presents window, click the Winter Event Button at the left side of the screen of your browser (pictured here) or at the right side in the app. Every day there will be a new set of rewards hidden in the presents. The player uses stars to open them to claim what is hidden inside. The player can open as many presents as they can afford, and win everything over and over again.

Every time you collect a winter quest reward or open a present, a snowfall will start on your town and surrounding area. The effect is quite spectacular, but will not be displayed if Animations under Settings is turned off.

There are also special awards hidden among the presents, which are as follows:

WE Show 2 WE Double Payout WE Shuffle All
Show 2 Double Payout Shuffle All
  • "Show 2" reveals two random presents on the board and gives the player Star 3 stars.
  • "Double Payout" doubles the reward in the next present to be opened.
  • "Shuffle All" resets all the presents. When "Shuffle All" appears, the player needs to press "Start" again and in addition claim Star 10 new stars.

Among the presents is also the Winter Deco Selection Kit, which let's the player choose one of the following decorations:

Christmas Tree

The purpose of the Christmas Tree is to award the Grand Prize once all the candles are lit, using matchsticks, where matchsticks were obtained through opening presents. Whenever the player opens a present, they will receive a matchstick. The matchsticks won will be stacked up on the top-right of the screen. Next to the playing window is a Christmas Tree. The player should use the matchsticks collected to light up candles on the tree. Any solitary matchstick might randomly light up 1-3 candles on the tree. There are 20 candles to light on each tree. Should a matchstick light more candles than the tree has unlit, the candles on the next tree will be lit. Once the tree is completely lit up, the tree will be refreshed and the assigned Grand Prize will be credited to the player's inventory.

A formula to calculate how many matchsticks are needed to complete a Winter Spire can be found in the matchstick section.

Matchstick formula

In order to reach the Level 12 of the Winter Spire, Level 1 + 11 Upgrades are needed. Completion of all Quests already provides the Level 1 Winter Spire + 3 Upgrades. The remaining 8 Upgrades require 15 Christmas Trees in order to be completed (See Grand Prize Table below). Therefore, it corresponds to 15 x 20 = 300 candles. Since 10 Stars are needed to open a present and to burn the matchstick, the following formula applies :

n_stars / 10 = n_candles / k ; with k as matchstick rate ( 1 < k < 3)

n_stars = 300 x 10 / k ; then Star 1000 < n_stars < Star 3000 ; for example if k = 2 then :

n_stars = 300 x 10 / 2 = Star 1500 Stars required when an average of 2 candles / matchstick are burnt.

Now let's assume that Star 1500 Stars were collected by solving all quests and connecting daily :

n_candles / k = 1500 / 10 <=> n_candles = 150 k <=> k = n_candles / 150

Candles / Matchsticks values to reach a given Winter Spire Level depending on Star Stars available :

12 8 15 300 2,00 52 % 1,88 96 %

Considering a 2 Candles / Matchsticks ratio, the Level 12 of the Winter Spire could be reached from Star 1500 Stars with a probability of 52 %. With about Star 1600 Stars (Quests, connexions, bonus from presents), it should be comfortable enough to reach the Winter Spire Level 12 (96%).

Gaussienne

This odds percentage difference is due to a Matchsticks rates distribution according to a Gaussian function centered around an average value of k = 2. The standard deviation is estimated at 0,07 for 150 Matchsticks. Odds indicated in the table were determined by integrating all vallues above the threshold. Calculating k-values from differents numbers of Star Stars available allowed to obtain the following plot.

Probality to reach the Level 12 Winter Spire in function of the total Star Stars spent :

WinterSpire12 Stars

Comments : From the Star 1485 Stars given by completing all Quests and a daily connection the chances to reach level 12 are about 35%. With only additionnal Star 35 Stars, the chances almost double at 67%. In order to optimise the gain of Stars by opening presents, it is recommended to accumulate at least Star 180 Stars before starting opening several presents till the Star 14 Stars, the shuffle or both are revealed ! Then, collect Stars again and repeat. Following this method, even worst improbable possible yield (1/18 x 2/18 x 2/18 = 1/1458) gives Star 10 Stars in 16 rounds (only the shuffle is found, the Star 14 Stars and the "Reveal 2" are missing). It means that 9 series of 16 rounds will cost 9 x 16 x 10 = Star 1440 Stars but will give 9 x 10 = Star 90 Stars back !

Eventually enough Stars will be collected to complete your beautiful and magnificent Winter Spire for Christmas !
