The Mystery Box was an object available which gave the player a random item. The Mystery Box had a cost of 6 donuts and the player could win a max of 40. The Mystery Box got replaced by the Revised Mystery Box on April 1, 2015, which offered higher chances at attaining higher-priced premium items. It was released with the game's initial launch and could be obtained in a number of ways:
- Inside a Homer Buddha
- Daily Bonus (playing the game for 5 days in a row)
- Purchasing for 6 Donuts
- Gil's Deals
If the player played the game for 5 days in a row when there was no theme in the game, they won a Mystery Box. Most players claim that they have won either Dumpsters, Flower Planters or Newspaper Dispensers.
In the Revised Mystery Box, unlike the Mystery Box, you do not recieve the donut value if you already have an item. Ex: If you already have the Tire Fire and you purchase a mystery box, you cannot reieve 40 donuts instead of it.
