Princess Peach is currently in the Mario Kart Tour Shop

There are several things that you can purchase in Mario Kart Tour using real money, however, these purchases aren’t mandatory for playing the game.

I’ve absolutely loved playing Mario Kart Tour on my smartphone since its release. The races are short, the tracks are fun, and I love being able to play as my favorite characters. If you’ve been playing for a while you’ve probably noticed that every driver, kart, and glider have special perks on specific courses. For that reason, you’ll want to collect as many of them as you can to get better scores and thus increase your global ranking.

In order to acquire gear and characters, you’ll need to obtain and spend coins as well as rubies within the app. You can go about collecting these forms of in-game currency by playing through the courses and completing challenges. Or you can dip into your wallet and spend real-world money to acquire gear, rubies, and drivers from Special Offers in the Shop. Here’s a list of all of the things you can spend money on in Mario Kart Tour. We’ll update this list frequently so check back often.

Rubies

Coins and rubies are the main form of currency within Mario Kart Tour. You can earn coins or rubies by competing courses, cups, or challenges. Rubies are also often featured as the login bonus reward for the day. If you want to add rubies to your account faster, you can also spend real money.

Rubies are the only currency that allows you to fire off a pipe, which acts like a loot box where you have the chance of obtaining a random kart, glider, item, or driver. You can also spend rubies to race on the Coin Rush course, which greatly increases your chances of acquiring coins.

Rubie purchases are as follows:

  • $1.99 for 3 rubies
