It seems nowadays there are so many options for Mystery Boxes – Electronics, Kids, Luxury, Dogs, Cats.. Each and every kind of Mystery Box is now available for grabs. But how many of them are worth the price your pay for it? Let’s find out in our detailed analysis of the most popular Mystery Box providers.
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS A MYSTERY BOX?
A Mystery Box is a package containing items of different value, different brands, and different amounts of items in it. Mystery Box will usually contain a variety of items based on specific subjects like Electronics or Shoes, some of the items will be from expensive brands. These items are assigned randomly in each box. Since the items are random sometimes you will get a box worth well over the value you paid for it and other times you will get less valuable items. This really is the thrill of the game. You never know what you will find in these Mystery Boxes. Some people make fantastic gains, while others don’t get so lucky. I personally find the most important part of the experience to be the waiting process. It is always a delight to get one of these packages and find out what awaits in it this time.
ARE ALL MYSTERY BOX PROVIDERS SELLING THE SAME THING?
Unfortunately, there has been a lot of bad reputation around Mystery Boxes. People with dishonest intentions flooded the Mystery Box market in the past years and they would take people’s money and not send out any items or send less than they promised. There is also a new trend of Virtual Mystery Boxes.
AMAZON MYSTERY BOXES AND VIRTUAL MYSTERY BOXES: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
To put it across simply a mystery box is a surprise box with a secret prize inside. You pay a fixed price to unbox it and see what you got.
This trend has grown in popularity since the early Amazon, eBay, Noughties, monthly/subscription boxes from LootCrate, Geekcases, etc. It was well-known in the gaming community, especially csgo players. Though, the recent massive upsurge in demand is thanks to YouTubers making video content about their experience with the case opening. Mystery loot boxes can be divided into real and virtual mystery boxes.
Real boxes are those presented by classic Amazon and others. When you buy one the delivery comes one day to your address and after unpacking you may reveal what is inside. But the revolutionary virtual mystery boxes went even further and let the customers find out what their winnings are right away on the website. Let’s take a quick look at what other aspects they are different:
- super exciting because you can reveal your items only once it’s delivered
- contains guaranteed amount of items
- different categories to please everyones needs
- bonuses for ordering more than 1 box
- relatively low prices of the boxes
- great variety of themed cases
- possibility to exchange your prize directly on the website
- provide the users with different bonuses, gift cards, promo codes, giveaways
- more options to exchange your items, but less excitement than receiving a real Mystery Box package
