Stars Rewards Chests explanation

Every time you complete a progress bar, you earn a Chest.

With Stars Rewards, Chests contain randomized rewards that relate to the activities you enjoy, including some with huge top prizes! There are six different Chest types of increasing worth, each with a distinctive color.

The bigger the Chest, the more valuable it is. Bigger Chests will not only give you more valuable prizes on average but also a better chance to win the top prizes.

Every time you have earned a Chest, you will receive a new progress bar.

Chests you earned can be opened before, during, or after your session, and they expire after 3 calendar months if unopened. Expired Chests have no value and cannot be retrieved. The actual rewards will be configured by the system at the time you open a Chest, not at the time you earn it.

You can move up or down the Chest types based on your *last* completed progress bars.

  • If the four bars all have the same completion day and are of the same type, you move up a Chest level. Your 4th progress bar in a calendar day will be blue to indicate you can move up to the next Chest if you complete the progress bar by the end of the day.
  • If at least two progress bars have the same completion day, you will remain on your current Chest level.
  • If the last three progress bars have different completion days, you move down a Chest level.

This process applies for all Chest types of the Stars Rewards, except you cannot downgrade below Chest type 1 and you cannot upgrade beyond Chest type 6.
