Attaining the Treasure Chest

Most people wonder how to get one of these chests in the first place. Well, it is quite simple. You can get the chest by doing jobs anywhere within the game, whether it is in New York, Cuba, Russia, or the recently opened Bangkok.

If you do not have any treasure chests yet, keep doing jobs and you are bound to get one soon.

Opening the Chest

You may already have some of these treasure chests in the Mafia game. When you are playing, usually a window pops up when you receive a chest, letting you know that you have it. However, if you are playing fast, you may have gone on before your realized what the window said. If you have any chests that are unopened, they will be on your loot page where you can get back to them and open them.

Opening the chests in the Mafia Wars game is rather simple. All you need is the key. The treasure chest key will cost you though. To get the key you have to go to the Marketplace and purchase it with reward points. Usually the key is going to cost you 9 reward points. There are some cases where the key goes on sale though and you can get them for as little as 5 reward points.

If the treasure chest pops up while you are playing, you do not always have to go through the trouble of going to the Marketplace to get the key. Right in the window it will give you the option to unlock the chest by using 9 of your reward points. The other option is to skip opening it. If you skip it, it will be added to your loot page and you can go back and open the chest later when you purchase a key.

Free Keys

There is a chance that you can get free keys within the Mafia game though. While it is rare, sometimes within the new mystery bags that can be given as gifts by friends, these keys do show up and allow you to open up a treasure chest for free.

Treasure Chests and Gifting

You will find that the treasure chests can be gifted. You can easily give them to friends. However, it is important to note that the items that are actually in the chest are not items that can be gifted.

What is inside?

It really is a chance that you take. There are a variety of weapons that you may get, armor, vehicles, and more. Some of the items are fairly low in attack and defense, while others can have up to 47 Attack or 47 Defense. You just never know what you are going to get when you open up a chest.
