List of Mafia Wars Bonuses

Share:

In old school Mafia Wars, you didn’t get many options for extra energy/stamina or experience. Energy Packs and clicking on Help Requests was about as good as it got and it took a long time to get to Level 1,000. Fast forward to today and we have so many choices that it’s possible to for most to play as long as they want. We now see many high level accounts and rarely do we need to wait it out like we did in the past. It took me about a year to get to Level 1,000 but now it doesn’t seem to take long to pump out 1,000 levels. The reason is the game has changed and if you use all the bonuses to your advantage, you should be able to level faster as well. The chart below lists all the different bonuses you can use to level up and the times that they are available.

The Brazil and London Bonuses can be doubled if you use the Taskmaster Bonus. The Taskmaster Bonus can only be used once every 8 hours so if you collect your properties individually, you will need to decide which one you would like double the take on.

If you mastered any level of District 7 in Brazil, you will get a slight increase in you energy and stamina payouts (up to 15%) because of the Machete Dance Prop which increases your payout.
The same is true for the London properties if you mastered any level of District 3 (up to 14%) and own a British Royal.

I included attacking yourself with an alternate account because many players do this when they are shy some experience and have exhausted all of their bonuses (some do it 24/7). I’m sure Zynga does not condone this practice but in order to stop it they would need to eliminate the passive experience you get when others attack you and lose. Those who have spent a lot of money building up their defense would not appreciate this and might even demand a refund.

  1. Lol ... glad to see you post this one Jen. I remember back to 2008 when I played MW for the first time. My FB account was temporarily blocked due to too many friend requests submitted. Now it's been 4 years since, and I missed almost 2 years not playing MW. But now within 5 months I can catch up with the others, just Italy achievements need it opened again ... Yup, positive change in the game that significantly increase leveling-up is bonuses!

    Always love your posts Jen, thank you :)

    1. I didn't forget it, I omitted it. If you are out of stamina, you can't really participate in one of these. Yes if you can get in one and win before you are low on stamina then it will help.

  3. Ah, the good ole' days...Great post, Jennifer.

  5. A lot has changed.
    Back in the day Stamina was 2 Skills for one 1 Stamina many had higher Energy due that.. Now I think many have more Stamina than Energy because the overall Ratio of Stamina is better.
    Back in the day you had only 1 energypack per day. Powerpack was not even available
    As above the amount of ices.. I think a lot has to do with more Stamina .... Fights Won go way up too nowadays. It is not that people have only a few 100 or maybe 1000 health. 10,000 is nothing nowadays
    We didn't had a power attack button either in the past so why did we need high health
    So much changed

  7. There are too many bonus in this game. Obviously, Zynga designed it that way so players can play much longer. Unless a player is using scripts, players will not get the most out of bonuses! It really is a shame. Zynga should have kept it very basic.

  8. How do you put yourself on the hitlist????

    1. Use an alternate account or ask one of your friends to do it. You will only get the exp if you get attacked by players who lose to you and avoid stronger players. It's luck of the draw.

  9. I like this post. I do disagree that "it’s possible to for most to play as long as they want". For high level players who built up their energy and stamina very high yes that is true. But how many high level players are out there compared with your average level 1000-3000 player? Some have this elitist attitude that everyone is a high level player and has built up massive energy/stam when that simply is not the case. Of course I don't know of any place to go to check the levels of all active players but that's what I think.For the average player like myself, yes it is better and I do not have to wait as often to build up some energy and can play longer, but I can't play on an unlimited basis.

    Also, I used to get energy/stam from blue and red mystery bags once a day but it stopped giving me that a couple weeks ago and is now usually only crap with the occasional sp.

    1. You need to attack someone you will lose to and the option to buy them for 3rps is in the lower right corner of the fight screen.

  11. Fast level up I found was using the 6 to 1 ratio. Calculate by adding energy and stamina and divide by level. Now-a-days a little less is okay with all the extra's. Stamina more so by robbing NYC where it use to be Thailand was the greater extra bonus points but now Its NYC. Most players don't even recognize being hit in NYC, but beware your mafia friends are at risk for robbing even if in your mafia. Before the RED tag clans we have now; it took only 3 months of causal play to reach 3K. Random robbing after you master it at level 10 yields 2 to 3 times the loot and with 2x loot on rob squads gains you all the high loot that is giving for that way of playing. Back when a certain level was needed to get the high loot for victory points at the marketplace fighting was needed 1st. Yet it seems I gain more victory coins in robbing which now is used to purchase 100 Defense boosts procuring the Catastrophes(5 per 100 coins). Sure your weapons defense and attack strengths will be high ,but the personal skills must be taken into account when hardcore serious fighting initiates. Enjoy and TY Loot Lady for your continuing insight on gameplay. Ice nice REV
