After you have logged into TrainStation through the website (also called the portal) or via app (mobile or tablet version), you will find the minigame under the gem shop section (see first image). Pressing the "Start" button begins the randomization process. For a few seconds a train will pass across the game window, then stopping and displaying a wagon with the logo of the resource you have just won.
With mobile apps you are able to play a second time using Ad Rewards and a third time (via Special Spin ads reward).
You can either win gems, one or very rarely two of them, or one of the first "old" 16 resources.
The amount of the resource you will win depends on two factors.
You get a base quantity that is 50 times your current level (e.g. Level 177 X 50 will yield 8,850 resource units). The second factor will be how many consecutive days/times you've played. For each Day/Time you played, you get a bonus multiplier of 10%, up to a maximum bonus of 50%. So if you have played 5 days/times in a row you will get a 50% bonus (8,850 * 0.5 = 4,425). This means you would receive 13,275 (8,850 + 4,425) resource units for this spin.
- Bonus multiplier don't effect gems
- Bonus multiplier is reset at 09:00 GMT if you didn't use the mini-game during the last 24h
