When receiving a chest it's exciting to see a Gold Chest pop up, and I would say even more exciting to see a Magic Chest appear. Is the chest you receive decided randomly?

In general, chests received are not random. There is a long repeated pattern in which you receive chests. You may have noticed that early on, chest 12 to be precise, you received a Magic Chest. Everyone else did too.

As mentioned in this answer there are more modern ways of reviewing your chest cycle than manually counting. For more information on the cycle, see below. However, if you'd just like to view where you are in your current cycle then I recommend you enter your player tag into https://statsroyale.com/

Old Way:

A user Asdamp on Reddit decrypted the CSV files that contain the data for this pattern and posted it.

All players start their cycles at different places, so to keep track of your own cycle you'll need to pay attention to the magical and giant chests that you receive.

The following is the order in which chests are received:

1. Silver
2. Silver
3. Silver
4. Gold

After you make a complete cycle through this list, you start back at the top at 0, and the cycle repeats. It is worth mentioning that only chests received increment the cycle, so feel free to battle while you have 4 chests without worrying about missing that Magic Chest.

As a final note, if you're quite lucky, you may receive a Super Magical Chest. These chests are awarded randomly, and can happen anywhere within a cycle, or not at all. Receiving Super Magical Chests will not affect your cycle, your next chest will be in the order you expect.

    if you can get a super magical chest, then it does not follow this list? There's a chance that it will ignore the list and give you something else? – GarrettJ Apr 21 '16 at 5:32

    @GarrettJ The only time it can ignore it is if you get a super magical chest. They aren't a part of this cycle since they're awarded randomly. Your next chest will follow the cycle still. – Michael McQuade Apr 21 '16 at 13:17
  • A clanmate told me that he earned 8 Silver Chests in a row. How is that possible? – John Sep 3 '16 at 9:49
  • It has been discovered that super magical chests drop once in every 500 chests. Legendary chests drop once in every 2 cycles, or 1 cycle if above a trophy limit. Find all that info here at: clashroyalearena.com/tips/how-does-the-chest-drop It would be great if @Michael_McQuade could edit his answer please & thank you. – Grant Davis Jan 22 '17 at 17:58
