    Tip: To make flip the coin work don't pick heads or tails until 5 seconds after a coin loads onto to black background. once you pick heads or tails don't click anything just let the coin continue to flip.

    •  

      Thanks, I couldn't work out if you're meant to flip it or what. Just kept losing lol

  •  

    Just successfully redeemed my free 15pc bucket (3 boxes of 5 pieces each apparently) while guy in front of me had to get the manager for their order (unknown).

    Seems a large amount of inconsistency?

    •  

      Mine came in a bucket.

  •  

    can i redeem all 3 Stash at the same time?

    •  

      No, one redemption per day.

  •  

    Anyone else getting the "There ain't no buckets here" pop up? Telling me to go to my nearest KFC to find them…was working fine yesterday

    •  

      This popped up in Melb CBD this morning. Plenty of buckets in the burbs though.

    lol whoever made this app needs to get the f….

    can't believe they allow you to run it with developer options enabled.

    also no IP measures.

    awesome.

  •  

    So I've had KFC 2 days in row from my bucket stash and each time redeemed and completed order, selected drive through, you then click to when your at the speaker, give them your order no. all smooth until you get to the last window and even though your orders right there, they seem confused………whats your order no.? Whats your name? Was it an online order? Did the person at the first window send you here? However, my first redeem is currently still sitting in my stash counting down so guess I'll be having another free double tender burger later on :)

  •  

    Has anyone been able to work out "how and where" do the buckets appear? As per their T&Cs, buckets will appear in "populated areas" or "near KFC restaurants". For the former, sometimes, I see a bucket and when I go to the place, it appears, as if it is inside a restaurant. One I had got a bucket inside Macca's :P Its easy to enter a Macca's, but sometimes they're inside a premium restaurant, or a proper dine-in place, like Nando's, Vapiano, etc. So close, but just cant get in to claim the bucket.

  •  

    Still don't quite understand how the redemption deadline and expiry works. Tried to redeem a deal last night and ended up not going through with it cos I was having the same issue as a lot of the previous commenters here where it was still trying to charge me the full amount at the very last step. Took another look at it this morning and even though the pending redemption message is gone it's now replaced with the "hold ya horses" one and it seems like I won't be able to redeem anything today either? Even though I haven't redeemed or ordered anything yet??

    •  

      Should reset 2:30pm today. Try other stores if the discount doesn't apply

      •  

        Yeah I tried about 3 stores around me and none applied the required discount at checkout. I guess I'm confused then since why didn't it show the 'hold ya horses' message last night even though I restarted the app several times trying to fix the charging issue? Did it simply tick over upon midnight or something even though I hadn't actually redeemed anything?

        EDIT: I guess my point is if it's gonna lock me out until 2:30pm then at least it should let me finish redeeming my deal first ….

        •  

          Sadly the timer for "24 hours" or "2:30PM" starts when you click on "Redeem" in your Bucket Stash, irrespective of you actually completing the order or not. So if you decided to redeem, say a Zinger Burger but at Checkout changed your mind and wanted to go back and choose your other prize, say, Chicken Popcorn, you are locked out. You will neither get your burger nor the popcorn on that day. And you will have to wait again till 2:30PM to claim the next prize.

            @djoz: I'm ok with having lockout timers but the app's main shitshow for me is the whole still charging for the free item. For some reason it didn't try to lock me out last night when I added then deleted the stash in my cart multiple times trying to get it to work (on top of restarting the app and logging in and out before I eventually gave up) but then I guess this morning's a new day so it reckons I must have already redeemed it by now or something.

    •  

      Yep having the same issue :(

  •  

    Does anyone know how to remove the email verification every time I log into my KFC account on the app?

    My partner sometimes swings by KFC on the way home and if I have a nice freebie, she logs into my account and I have to keep waiting for the email verification to come through.

    •  

      it’s so annoying aye. I have one account that does not have it at all. weird

    •  

      The app downloads a JSON file off the server that contains a key to force email verification. So unfortunately no, not unless you know your way around the contents of a decompiled app.

  •  

    Anyone found a gold bucket yet? Or even a non-food prize?

    •  

      No luck with 4000 spins, might not be available yet

        What's the best thing you've won?
        I've got an Ultimate box. Pretty over the freeze, chips, slider, go buckets etc. Not worth my time trekking to KFC to claim it, only if you were already there getting something.

        •  

          best thing I've won: 3 piece box, large popcorn chicken

          average: zinger burger, double tender burger

          Replace whenever I can: freeze, small chips, sliders

          •  

            @CodeXD: Doesn't seem that great from that many spins?
            This morning I've snagged an ultimate box, 3 piece box and a double zinger. The latter two came from flipping the coin so you might have to gamble to get some of the better prizes?

            •  

              @whitelie: the 4000 isnt my spin, just what someone else posted up. Click on the link and there's a break down of what they got.

              •  

                @CodeXD: Yep, got that.

                I just skimmed the T&C's and read this

                Prizes will be awarded throughout the Competition Period in such a way as to ensure that approximately constant ratios of the different prize types listed below are given away throughout the Competition Period.

                So everything should be available at all times technically

        • +1 vote

          I've won 2 zinger stackers (one flipped from double tender) and a 15pc bucket, few other burgers, large chips

          Anything less than a Zinger gets flipped and either disappears or becomes something worse lol

          •  

            @pennypincher98: Best I've won so far is a Zinger burger, I keep getting regular chips/freezes/sliders, and flipping them into one of those 3 things lol. Seems like I'm just getting super unlucky from the comments here…
            Just flipped my 3 stashed items all into freezes ffs.

  • +1 vote

    best thing received after probably 500 spins was a single zinger burger. so over it now.

  •  

    Full 24 hours required between redeem now?

    Before just a new day

    • +1 vote

      When did you last order? This comment suggests that it resets at 2:30pm daily.

  •  

    My map doesn't show any buckets in the entire city today.

    Laughably bad app :D

    •  

      Often there will be heaps near the KFC's (I guess to get people to the area and eventually in to the store) but the map doesn't seem to load buckets when you just scan around. They take a while to pop up.

      •  

        Yeah I'm in Adelaide CBD there are 3 stores very close but no buckets.

        I can't usually get the app to redeem at lunchtime anyway! :)

    • +2 votes

      Sometimes killing and reopening the app helps

    •  

      Cant seem to find much buckets today. Have they reduced it ?

  •  

    The 100 and 200 eftpos cards are live - for flipping the 15 piece bucket only.

    •  

      hm that's a risky gamble…

    •  

      where are you getting this info from?

      •  

        From the 10k+ spins they've done going by the other comments… probably double that by now, 10k was yesterday I think

      •  

        From winning them

  •  

    My bucket stash had 3 prizes and now they are all empty? Anyone else? They didn't expire and I didn't do anything dodgy.

    •  

      Had that happen too, they came back after I closed and reopened the app a few times or it might have been the relogging in.

      •  

        Yep exactly right. Closed and reopened a few times and they are back now.

  •  

    So lets say you got Medium chips and declinced adding medium chips to stash, does that mean one less chips in the mix for others ?

    •  

      I've been wondering this as well, couldn't find anything concrete in the t&c.

    Thought this was pretty interesting in the T's & C's

    The Promoter will monitor the rate of virtual buckets being revealed throughout the Competition Period to ensure the prize pool lasts until the end of the Competition Period. If the rate of virtual buckets being revealed is at any stage projected to exceed the total prize pool available, the Promoter may vary the location, timing and number of bucket pins in each set so as to contain the rate of virtual buckets being revealed and to ensure that the total prize pool is not exceeded.

    The Promoter will also monitor the virtual buckets being revealed throughout the Competition Period to ensure that the number of each type of food prize being won in that proximity is not such that redemption of the food prizes within the immediately following period might cause that store to run low on stocks of the relevant food items. In that event the Promoter may vary the location, timing and number of bucket pins in each set so as to contain likely demand for food items at the relevant store.

    So if spoofers are smashing one area, there will be less buckets there but by the sounds you might end up increasing the odds of winning something better once you get rid of all the same prizes?

  •  

    So… 3 days in and prize redemption still not working at many stores? Has anyone had the problem resolved or got a response from customer service?

    •  

      Claimed my first one tonight, an Ultimate box. Ordered in the app like normal, nothing to pay at checkout. No issues at all.

      I thought the only issue was with the 15pc as it's not a regular menu item?

      • +1 vote

        My local restaurant charges me full price for any prize item at checkout. If I pick some other restaurants it shows as free, but they are too far away. Based on comments it's a common problem. I had an ultimate box but it has expired now as I couldn't claim it.

    Finally got my first 15 piece, flipped it and lost. Downgraded to a regular chips hahah

    •  

      Ohhh cr*p. I've got the 15pc bucket. Not flipping it. I don't think my odds are any better lol.

      •  

        It's 50/50 ;)

        • +1 vote

          Do you think it's a true 50/50 though? If there's more prizes of lesser value, does that sway the result? It's not a physical coin afterall

        • +1 vote

          Yes but if you flip a freeze it's 50/50 you either get something better or retain your prize. Hence 0% chance of loss

          With a 15pc bucket you've got a "50/50" chance (somehow I've lost like 80% of flips) of losing your 15pc bucket for a freeze or chips so certainly a lot riskier

          I agree with whitelie, I think the coin is coded to flip positive more on lower value items.

    I give up on this game. Waiting half an hour for a bucket to appear is not worth a frozen pepsi.

    •  

      If you delete an account and sign up again with the same details you get the first reward again straight away. Previous stash is still there but swapping didnt work when there are more than 3 stashed.

      •  

        Does that actually Work??

        • +1 vote

          Yep 😎, I doubt they will bother fixing

          •  

            @Paul B: Does it also remove the 1 Food item a day limit?

            • +1 vote

              @jcguy7: Not sure, the stash must be linked to email address so it still has the same countdown when I signed up again

    Is everyone's order history in WA time?

    •  

      Yes, observed it on 15-Jun. Lol.

      • -2 votes

        Alright, I believe the daily reset is actually on 12pm WA time, so 2pm Melb/Syd time. Which is really stupid since AEST is more standardised time for Australians.

        •  

          Ok, that explains the "12PM reset time" πŸ‘πŸ»

      •  

        That explains why my order was like 2 hours in the past despite only ordering a couple of mins before ahahaha

  •  

    Map is so slow and laggy. Trying to collect anything is very difficult. Half the time the map doesn't load or if you are directly under a bucket or even in a store most of the time nothing even comes up.

    When I went to redeem, it says 'processing' but was charged the full price, even though it says applies at checkout.

    The monopoly experience was alot better.

  •  

    Just claimed a hoodie. Didn't really get it from the bucket but it showed at the bottom after I won a large popcorn

    •  

      Which screen/page actually? The page where you add to your stash?

      •  

        Yeah yeah after I added the prize to stash at the bottom it'd claim hoodie label

    •  

      what's it look like?

      •  

        Haven't received yet only claimed

    •  

      Wait, so does this mean that non-food prizes are attached to food prizes and you need to add them to your stash to get them?

      •  

        yeah either that or it could also be a bug

    •  

      I had the same thing happen, but with a $100 eftpos gift card instead

      •  

        My man. Want to swap? Ha Congrats man :)

  •  

    Is it just me, or everyone noticed that the number of buckets today were far less than the previous 3 days?

    •  

      there's like 20 where I am atm lmao

    I just got a 15 piece chicken bucket. flipped a 3-piece tender for it. so happy

      The amount you'd have to spoof for 3 ultimate boxes in 36 hours…

      That or I just have terrible luck spinning boxes

  •  

    Looks like terrible luck. The no. of buckets has suddenly gone down drastically. Couln't win anything yesterday. Just got to spin 1. And it gave me Regular Fries. I flipped it and won, to get Regular Fries again πŸ˜’

  •  

    Anyone else not able to fill their 3rd slot? Everytime I win a prize it asks if I wanna replace something despite having an empty space.
    Also saying I cant claim any prizes today despite never claiming a prize ever

    •  

      Appears to be a bug specific to ur case. The app is very very buggy as reported by several users. Also, I'm not finding any buckets to spin today. There were lots on 15, 16, 17 June.
