Despicable Me Wiki

The Golden Tickets were a kind of special item in Minion Rush and was introduced in update 4.0.0 in September 2016. It was the fifth and one of the premium currencies in the game.

Players earned golden tickets by opening Costume Improver Prize Pods, which was earned by directly purchasing them or by collecting all fruits of a jelly machine in higher Jelly Lab levels. A golden ticket could be (and only) used to a costume, if the player has collected enough tickets and unlock the costume's ability (known as golden skill), the user activated the Ticket Shredder to convert the remaining ticket(s) to golden dust, which was converted to another ticket if enough were collected.

The golden ticket gave certain costumes for more ability, for example, if Boxer Minion's golden ability was unlocked, its ability was upgraded to make all power-ups last 32 seconds longer if it is also upgraded to the highest level, even longer than a fully upgraded Lucy Minion. Compared to the Blueprint, the golden ticket was much easier to unlock for the costume's additional ability, golden skill, though the ticket of costumes the player hasn't owned yet may also spawn; these tickets couldn't be shredded or converted to other uses.
