The game offers free trading card packs (which are used to gain experience and level up skills) multiple times per day and additional resources once per day.
In order to level up and get a competitive advantage and access new play areas, players must accumulate items that help them to earn experience points. Aside from in-app purchases used to pay to win and the minimal, free daily rewards, the way to earn these items is to play match after match for the opportunity to place first in a round, which earns the player points toward earning rewards that help them level up. This is a slow, tedious process.
If a player has not made in-app purchases, they must watch an ad for each of 5–6 daily rewards that they want to claim.
The game features a player ranking based on their performance in competitions against other players, and the rankings reset each month. While players do not have to pay attention to this ranking system and can just play matches for fun, the ranking system may be an incentive for some players to play as much as possible.

The game features timers to "unlock" trading card packs, and the timer can be skipped by spending virtual gems that can be bought with real money.
The game offers a monthly "Premium Pass", bought with real money, that gives the player access to additional rewards as they win rounds of gameplay.
Leveling up centers around trading card packs, the specific contents of which are unknown but are advertised as containing a certain amount of rare items. Trading card packs can be bought with premium currency.
