If you log into Super Mario Run [Free] today, you'll be greeted with a notification for a new event (with a fun image of Luigi gathering coins) called Loads of Coins. This limited time event is live now and will run until January 25th, and it's all about - you guessed it - getting loads of coins. When you win a Toad Rally during this event, you get 1.5 times the coins you'd usually get, so that's a pretty good deal and a good way to boost your coins quickly. If you do lose in the Toad Rally, you get the same amount of coins you'd usually get. Here's your chance to buy those extra buildings you've been wanting to.

We shouldn't be surprised by Nintendo starting to run events like these because with no new content coming down the pipe anytime soon, they need something to keep players coming back to the game, just like what Pokemon GO has been doing recently. The event is live now, so here's your chance to grab more coins.

    I find coins so easy to come by the I don't really know why you'd need a boost.

  • Jason

    Is there anything useful to do with coins, other than building useless stuff?

    How frequent are you expecting new content? The game has been out for 4 weeks now.. Give it a chance.

      They claimed they aren't adding new content, or so I heard...

      • Logan

        I haven't heard that from any official site. The articles that mentioned that was a day or two after release, and then they released the friend matches and other content. So I'd still say give it a chance. Nintendo has a good track record of updating and released DLC straight into a game.

    i have a spare 90k in coins, its the toads that need a boost, I'm currently on 4211 atm. Space to place the buildings in kingdoms is an issue, as i have a few i can't place anywhere to i get another rainbow bridge.

      The turtle toads are pretty hard to acquire on my end..

    • Poke Mom

      I've maxed a 9,999 toads and 99 rally tickets and bought all the bridges. I'm back to trying to get all the black coins. I've gotten all the pink and received the pink pipe for an extra play world. It's boring after a few plays. I've hit a plateaue a long time ago and am now replaying the game on other devices.

    It'd be fun if there was something to buy with the coins.

    Temporary events are nice, but a temporary event to boost coin counts seems pointless (is anyone really short on coins anyway?). Temporary events with temporary levels on the other hand - now THAT would be cool 🙂

    In any case, I applaud them for at least trying some things, but fear it might be too late, too little. The "single IAP model" was just weird (and pissed off a lot of people who didn't know what they were signing up for), the "always online" requirement is downright user hostile, the "kingdom building" thing is just plain pointless. A content update for some extra levels (like 8x5 instead of 6x4) might make it really worth the 9.99...
