Donuts Inc. is a lot like other idle games, so you will know what to expect if you are familiar with the genre. Regardless, we are here to show you how to earn lots of money in our Donuts Inc. cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!

Catch the flying fox!

Occasionally you will see a little fox fly by your screen. There is a dollar bill attached to his back, and if you tap him, you will be able to collect a nice cash bonus!

What is even better is that you can double this amount if you watch a short advertisement. If you do so you can really get a bunch of money from out of nowhere!

Open new branches as soon as possible!

You will open your first new branch automatically once you reach 100 fame for the first time. Fame is the “prestige” currency and it is gained by opening new donut branches, which is essentially resetting all of your progress.

Each point of fame is worth a small cash percentage bonus, but more importantly you can spend your fame on awesome permanent upgrades that persist between branches.

The thing is that the fame shop only opens once you have accumulated 500 fame, which means you are going to have to open quite a few branches before you gain access. Open new branches as fast as possible, but remember that you will earn more fame the more money you end the current branch with.

Save your gems for the multipliers!

You may be tempted to spend your hard-earned gems on the Time Skippers or Recipe Chests, but we recommend holding onto them. In the Boost Shop, you can buy permanent multipliers that multiply the amount of money you make from ALL sources.

The first upgrade costs 130 gems and adds a 3x permanent multiplier to your income. Needless to say you will see a dramatic boost in your earnings after purchasing this.

You should buy at least the first multiplier, then you can buy the other things if you wish. The next one costs 350 gems which is a bit hard to save up as a free player, so go ahead and grab some Recipe Chests.

Get some Recipes!

You can purchase a Recipe Chest for 30 gems or a Super Recipe Chest for 60 gems, which has a higher chance of giving you better recipes. Recipes add huge multiplier boosts and buffs to specific kinds of donuts, so they are essential for making lots of money.

If you do not want to spend your gems on them quite yet, you can also watch an advertisement to gain two free common recipe cards. Try to have at least one recipe for every kind of donut!

Earn milestones for donut buffs!

Milestones are achieved once you fill up the yellow progress bar on a donut’s level meter. When you hit a milestone, you gain speed buffs, money boosts, and so forth. As a general rule of thumb, you should try to aim for the milestones that increases a donut’s facility output to instant. You will know it is instant when the progress meter is flashing blue.
