Experience or XP (XP) is a way of rewarding players for their progress and evolution in-game. Purchasing buildings, decorations, completing quests and unlocking characters are all possible ways to earn experience. When enough experience is obtained, the player moves onto a new level and the experience bar is reset.

Levels are certain tiers of experience that, when achieved, unlock new content such as buildings, decorations, and quests, as well as certain jobs. The player is also rewarded with Donut(s), as well as a comment or quote from a character, usually directed at the player.

The table below provides information on each level. As of March 4th, the current level cap is Level 50. Additionally, when the player reaches the level cap, they may continue earning experience to reach Bonus Levels. The last 5 levels have a multiplier that affects the costs of buildings and experience earnt.

Bonus Levels

Bonus Levels are unlocked once a player reaches the current Level Cap. All XP are then applied to the Bonus Levels, with the XP per Level going up after each Bonus Level in the same manner as regular Levels.  Each time a Bonus Level is reached the player is presented with 3 Boxes, with 1, 2, or 3 Donuts in each Box. If the first Box selected does not have 3 Donuts in it the player has the option to either accept the Box with 1 or 2 Donuts in it, or pay 50,000 Cash to select one of the remaining 2 boxes. If the player still has not found the 3 Donuts, they can pay another 50,000 Cash to open the last Box which does contain the 3 Donuts or accept the 2 Donuts they have.

Level-up messages


  • As the Player moves through the bonus levels, the XP required to reach the next bonus level will increase until the Player is on a bonus level that requires 10,000,000 XP to level up. At that point the amount of XP to level up will remain at 10,000,000 until EA brings the next level out.
