It is another game of chance within game of chance like Chaotic Tomes.

Don't worry (or jump in excitement if you think luck is on your side) since the chance of hitting the 200 mil gp jackpot is exceedingly low, probably much lower than getting a $400,000 Bath Ruth card in real life.

I have never hit the 200 mil gp prize once since day 1 of TH/Yelp/Wheel or whatever these things used to be called. I am not sure about the chance of hitting double dragon either. Probably not in the players' favor anyway. So this is probably still not OP. ;)

Sure lets put this in game content then shouldn't be too op. :)


Actually IRL some business practices are just like that. For instance, sometimes you get offers from Baseball Card companies on much higher than usual odds but what they do is the odds of getting the rare cards remain the same like 1 in >100.

In the case of RS, it probably doesn't make any difference because the chance of hitting the 200 mil gp prize is likely very close to 0.

Ten x 0 is still 0. ;)

The key attraction of this kind of games of chance is not the grand prize. It is the common and uncommon prizes that draw the crowd. Most baseball card buyers are happy just to get an uncommon card. McDonald's customers are happy just to "scratch off" a free Big Mac or a soda instead of a trip to Disney. Likewise, the odds of the 200 mil gp prize is unlikely a concern to most players as long as the common and uncommon prizes are worthwhile to them. These customers are not gamblers. They are attracted to the products because of the extra bonus and the added excitement of unveiling the prizes.

Sorry to those who think revealing the garbage odds of things like the 200 mil gp prize in TH will stop people from buying keys. You and Santa and Bugs Bunny are on the wrong track. :P

Opened and got 4x Fire Warrior Chestplates.

But it just gave 1 only. Is this meant to be because it would've been better to take cash instead then?


Yes, you get just 1 Chestplate and the rest are converted to gp automatically.

Yes, it is better to get the gp (not cash to be exact) since you have no use for the extra copies otherwise. They will only use up your bank space.
