They have multiple choices for purchasing their premium currency “Super Bucks”
This is the only social aspect of the game, if you invite someone and they join, you receive a bonus amount of premium currency, and a slight boost on your mines.
You invest time building up various mines and beating event mines and such, which makes it feel more valuable to you than someone else’s copy of the game.
The game will let you know that a bundle of “Boosts” and “Super Cash” and the like is on sale, and have a little timer telling you how soon the offer will be gone. Another offer always takes its place soon enough though.
Premium Currency can be used to skip Barriers in mines, which otherwise require waiting down a timer, although this currency is also readily available and easy to obtain through normal gameplay.
A common recurring event is the “Lucky Wheel”, a wheel you can spin which has rewards on it. Two free spins a day each for watching an ad, then you have to pay premium currency to spin it. Every spin does receive a reward though.
