The 2018 Santa Clause containers are here and there are 3 types – Santa’s Gift, Big Gift and MEGA Gift! Before the “quantity” discount, they sell for $1, $3 and $5 per crate respectively but are they worth it? If you have watched any of the videos that have already been posted they certainly can be, especially if you want a few premium ships.
I purchased 25 of the mega crates this morning and came about with 12,500 coal, 4,000 doubloons and 5 premiums ships that I did not have, the Marblehead, Duca d’Aosta, T-61, Monaghan, and the Kii along with a collection of flags and the new camo. Just in ships alone, if I were to buy them individually in the Premium shop, the cost is just shy of $150 ($146.23 to be exact). Plus another $20 for the gold and we’re at nearly $170. All totaled, I nearly doubled what I put into it so for me, that’s a decent return. Granted though, these are the Mega crates, which should have a better return to begin with at their price point and even with my first set of 5, I nearly doubled what I put in. So in my experience, at least with the Mega crates, they are worth it if you have the money to spare.
As for the other crate types, I can only speak for what I’ve seen in videos and they all look worth what you are putting in. The question really becomes what you want to get out of it? If you’re in it for the ships or gold exchange, go for the Mega. On the other hand if you just want a good chance at gold and coal and a decent chance at a ship, the big crates will certainly do the trick.
Overall, these are a great treat for yourself or to gift a friend if you’re a generous person. From what I tested with the mega crates a lot of at least 5 should yield a ship so cross your fingers, roll the dice and pray to RNGesus and hopefully you’ve been good because Santa Crates are here!
