Earn chests to obtain Gold, Gems, and Cards. Chests won from battles must be unlocked before you can receive their contents. Unlocking a chest takes a certain amount of time. Alternatively, the wait can be skipped using some Gems, or hastened using boosters from the Shop. Each player has four chest slots, so you can only have up to four chests waiting at a time. It is still possible to battle when your chest slots are full, but no chests will be won, only Gold and Crowns. Chests always contain cards from the Arena the player earned them in and below except for Legendary Chests, which can contain a Legendary Card from any Arena. Unlocking a new Arena (apart from the Legendary Arena) adds new Cards to the Chest rewards — none are taken out.
The rarer a card is, the less likely it is that a given chest will award an extra card of that rarity.
- Rare Cards are about 10 times rarer than Common Cards.
- Epic Cards are about 20 times rarer than Rare Cards and about 200 times rarer than Common Cards.
- Legendary Cards are about 20 times rarer than Epic Cards, about 400 times rarer than Rare Cards and about 4000 times rarer than Common Cards. Source

- It also reduced the gold in all chests by 20%, with the exception of Crown and Free chests.
- In addition, it modified the chest cycle to have one extra Giant Chest and one extra Magical Chest, at the cost of two Golden Chests.

- On 15/5/17, a maintenance break has changed the amounts of Gold in Giant, Magical and Super Magical Chests to be fixed to 7 times the amount of Cards (was randomly between 5-7 times before that).
- On 12/6/17, the March 2017 Update decreased the amount of Gold in Giant Chests by 63%, the amount of Cards by 13% but increased the guaranteed Rare Cards by 75%. It also increased the amount of Gold in Magical Chests by 43% and the amount of Gold in Super Magical Chests by 29%. This update also changed the starting chests as follows:
- Time to open each Wooden Chest: 5 seconds (from 15 seconds)
- Content of each Wooden Chest: 18 Gold and 3 Cards (from 11-13 Gold and 2 Cards)
- Starting Chest sequence: 4 Wooden - 2 Silver - 1 Golden - 4 Silver - 1 Magical ... (from 6 Wooden - 3 Silver - 1 Golden - 2 Silver - 1 Golden - 4 Silver - 1 Magical ...) which means 6 Chests are removed from the sequence.
- Because of this, all players' positions in the 240-Chest cycle moved forward by 6 places.
- On 9/10/17, Free Chests were removed and daily rewards became a part of Quests. However, there is a quest that gives free chests.
