Getting paint buckets
A sure way to get a paint bucket is to buy it with 10 dia.
Paint buckets can also sometimes be found in roadside shops for 1 to 342 coin per bucket.
Finally, paint buckets can be randomly obtained when players:
- open mystery boxes and mystery packages
- spin the Wheel of Fortune
- fully satisfy a town visitor
- win prizes in derbies
- use mystery nets in the fishing lake
- watch a Night at the Movies trailer
