Clash Royale has a fixed chest cycle that determines the chests you get after winning games. If you’re tired of surprises, learn how to check your Clash Royae chest cycle and know when you’ll get the next Royal Wild or Champion chest.

Unless you’re a heavy spender, chests are the primary source of obtaining cards in Clash Royale. There are four chest slots and winning a game fills one empty chest slot.

How to get Chests in Clash Royale

There are two ways to get chests in Clash Royale:

  • In-game shop.
