Notes:

  • The unmentioned positions do not earn keys.
  • Keys were not influenced by double rewards. For example, if a player became the first place with a double reward, then the same player became the first place with a normal one, they will earn 3 keys in both cases.
  • Keys were previously bought from In-App Purchases.

Formerly

Winning in a match can give you a certain amount of keys based on performance. Every player will have a limit on how many keys (200 keys to be exact) they can obtain in a period of time.

Key doublers can be obtained as a bonus reward in chests, ranging from 20, 40, 60, 80 or even 200, but they can also be obtained by purchasing them via gems in the Treasury. Frankly enough, the most expensive offer can get you 10 small chests, and at the same time, with those gems you can only buy 3 small chests from the current Lottery menu.
