I've done 69 invasions. And it STILL has not dropped yet. Is this a bug or glitch or am I having bad luck?

  • Given this: 'The Lucky Coin is dropped by Pirates during a Pirate Invasion at a rate of 1/4000 (0.025%)', it's highly likely you're just unlucky. – Waterseas May 29 '15 at 16:09

  • @Waterseas that's a fine answer you know :) – Elva May 29 '15 at 20:05

    According to math (1-( (1-(1/4000)) ^ (120*69) )) there is a 87% chance of it having dropped in the pirate invasions. Sounds like unlucky. – Elva May 30 '15 at 10:15

My personal experience was the same as yours, I did many pirate invasions to get just one lucky coin, AND just one discount card. Ironically for me, they both dropped in the same invasion. As @Waterseas pointed out, it is a 1/4000 chance, and yes you can be just that unlucky thanks to the mechanics of RANDOM(). On the positive side, by now you should be able to fully outfit a king's castle in golden furniture!

  • I remember getting 2 discount cards on 1 single invasion. Random Number God was on my side that particular day. – Anton Jun 11 '15 at 13:14
