Donuts (Donuts) are the premium currency for The Simpsons: Tapped Out. They can be obtained by purchasing them from the store, leveling up, by finishing the weekly track prize of the Rail Yard and finding Maggie three times on the Where's Maggie minigame, completing Daily Challenges at the Big Box, and randomly by; cleaning Debris, doing Friend Actions after maxing out all Friendship Levels, from a Mystery Box or playing the Sideshow You game in Krustyland. Donuts could also be obtained through special ways during certain promotions and events, like Weekly Challenges. After hitting the current Level Cap players get Bonus Levels that XP is applied to until a new Level is released during Content Updates. On each Bonus Level the player gets 3 boxes to pick from, each box contains 1, 2, or 3 Donuts, if you do not get 3 Donuts on the first try you can try again for 50000 cash.

On February 28, 2013, the Golden Scratch-R was added to the game, which gave the Player a chance to win up to 100 Donuts. It worked in a similar way to the regular Scratch-R in that you scratch off three boxes and whatever is revealed indicates the amount won. On June 3, 2014, the Stonecutters 2014 Event was introduced, during this Events there was a Secret Bonus unlocked once the player earned all the Personal prizes where a chance for up to 3 Donuts was earned every 3,000 Emblems, with bonus tries for 150,000 cash, similar to the regular Bonus Levels. The following events (excluding Monorail and THOH 2015 Events) also had this bonus.

Free Donuts

So far, 343 free Donuts, 353 including the easter egg, have been given out for events. The player received :

Daily Challenges

  • Many events also have random chances to earn donuts (e.g. THOH) or a chance to win bonus donuts every time they collect more of the prize track once all prizes have been obtained (e.g. Stonecutters, Superheroes, Terwilligers, Tap Ball)
  • Donuts are the only currency that does not have to be spent to complete quest chains. Note that this is different from using donuts to buy items to unlock quest chains.
