Subway Surfers: How to Gain More Coins

Coins are used for purchasing upgrades, characters, boards, single use items and more. To gain more of these, the game offers two options.

"Free Coins" will require some time and luck to get what you need. The "Paid Coins" on the other hand is an optional method that will require some real cash to get instant Coins. For more info, refer below.

- Free Coins Section -

Run a Lot!
     - This is the most basic way and most of your coins will come from this method.
Why? because it is where you can get free Coins and Mystery Boxes! The more you run, the more Coins you will get.

     - To maximize your Coins gain per Run, you must do the following:
     - Upgrade and max out your Coin Magnet and Jetpack powerups in the Shop >
Boosts section to increase their duration.
     - Coin Magnets will automatically get all the coins while running and Jetpacks will
give you an opportunity to grab Coins as much as you want without any obstacles!

Daily Challenges!
     - Complete Daily Challenges each day and increase your reward!
     - To complete a challenge, get all the letters of the given word of the day by
collecting them through runs. Note that an internet connection must be present after the timer hits 00:00:00 to update and get the new daily challenge.
Mystery Boxes and Super Mystery Boxes!
       A big chunk of Coins can be randomly gathered here so farm them through:

     - Runs: You can only get 1 or 2 at most per run so after that, just let your character
crash if you want. Run again to farm more.
     - Mission Sets: Reached x30? Complete extra missions for Super Mystery Boxes!
     - Daily Challenges: Complete a 5 Days streak to get a Super Mystery Box!
     - Shop: If you want to gamble, you can buy them too in the Shop!
