Mystery Vault Info

I finally got selected for the mystery vault - sorry for the delay in reporting this; I just never ended up getting asked for the bonus! Here is what it is and how it works:

When you log in, in what seems a random fashion, you have the chance to get this pop-up:


Note: You MUST have your email address submitted or you will not see this pop-up. You must give Mafia Wars permission to e-mail you or you will not be able to take advantage of this feature. You can add your e-mail at the "set-up" tab at the top of your Mafia Wars screen.

Once you have the pop-up and your e-mail address submitted, simply click "Email Me The Code". You will receive in email in a few moments.

Unlike the text says, you don't actually get a code. You get a link that you can click on in your inbox. Simply click on it, and you will log in and see an option right on the home page to "Open the Vault". Click that and get your reward:


So, the feature isn't too bad. It's not great, but it's not bad. What you'll get is 2 decent loot pieces, a random amount of experience, and a random amount of Reward Points. I seriously doubt more then 10 players will actually win 1000 reward points from this feature; it seems that the common range is 1-5. Still though, a reward point, a few decent items, and 100 XP for simply clicking a link is not a bad deal at all.

  1. any general idea on how long it takes for these to show up in your email account? i got one earlier and it's been about 4-5 hours since i told it to email me and it hasn't shown up yet. i doubt that the game doesn't have my email, because i get emails all the time about receiving gifts and game updates.

  2. same as previous anon. I still haven't got an e-mail for vault, seems like many players haven't got an e-mail

  3. I'm having the same issue. Said I earned it, it's on my MW homepage and yet it won't send me the e-mail.

  4. I have 2 accounts, one linked thru gmail email, and another thru hotmail. Received the gmail one immediately. Hotmail - I'm still waiting after a few hours.

    The lesson as always, hotmail sucks.

  5. I got mine immediately, but my email client brought up a tooltip saying "this message looks like spam" -- a less forgiving email client might have put directly in a junk folder.

    Also, I think there is a link on the mafia wars home page to resend the email, but I'm not sure about that.

    When I opened mine, I got 4 reward points, 150 XP, and two highish-mid-level items (which were useless to me since I already have 6 full fleets of high-end loot, but hey, I can't complain too much about getting free unique items).

  11. If you've requested an e-mail link from the pop-up, this link should work. I never got the e-mail either.

    Just substitute your facebook ID for the brackets and then take out all the spaces.

  19. I got the mystery vault. But it never sends me the email. I get heaps of emails from Zynga everyday so they have my email, but I still never get the mystery vault email. This seems to be a common problem with others as well.
