5. Today's Challenge

You can get Rubies for clearing the Today's Challenge on the specified day where you can get them. But firing off the pipe from it can sometimes give you a smaller amount of Rubies if you're lucky.

6. League Weekly Ranking Reward

Participating in the league weekly ranking rewards you with Rubies. You will also receive other items such as Points-Cap Tickets, Level-Boost Tickets, etc. The higher your rank, the higher the rewards you can get.

7. Purchase at the Shop

You can purchase Rubies with real currency by going to the shop. However, we recommend just getting the Gold Pass instead as you'll earn more Rubies for a cheaper price.

8. Gold Pass

The Gold Pass rewards you with Rubies. Some Rubies in the tour gift can only be received when you have the gold pass. You can get additional Rubies if you completet the Gold Challenges, which is exlusive to Gold Pass subscribers only.

In-Game & Twitter Events

There will be times you'll receive Rubies through mail when an event is going to happen or is happening in the game or in the official Twitter page of Mario Kart Tour. For example, if the current tour is a VS. Tour, both teams will get rubies when it ends, but the winning team will always get higher rewards than the losing team.

How to Use Rubies

Firing the Pipe

You can use Rubies to fire the pipe to unlock new karts, drivers, and gliders. 5 Rubies lets you fire 1 time, but 45 Rubies will let you fire off 10 times, saving you an extra 5 Rubies.

Coin Rush

Coin Rush
You can use Rubies to enter the coin rush event. This is a great way to earn lots of coins, but since coins can be obtained through racing alone, we suggest saving your Rubies for the Pipe.
