A Golden chinchompa could be won on the Squeal of Fortune from 6 to 16 September 2013. It gave the player a number of coins for raising. They may be converted to 500 coins if won. After 16 September, the chinchompa disappeared. Afterwards, a cosmetic golden chinchompa pet was made available for free to members in Solomon's store.

A new in-game message appeared upon login: 1) Visit the Squeal of Fortune. 2) Win a golden chinchompa. 3) Lovingly raise it. 4) ???? 5) Profit.

Food

There were three kinds of chinchompa food. Each individual chinchompa had a favourite type out of the following three:

Food could be won on the Squeal of Fortune in a food bag or obtained while skilling. Food could be traded for other food types only. Players must have waited until the chinchompa has reached a hunger percentage of 100% before they were able to feed the creature. A text message displayed: Your chinchompa is ready for feeding.

A thaumic chronometer made a golden chinchompa instantly hungry, and it remained that way until fed 10 times (this carried over through growth stages). The hunger percentages grew 6.66% every 2 minutes and took 30 minutes to reach 100%.

The higher your total skill level, the greater the amount of coins were received.

Baby Young Adult
Quantity 5 food 10 food 25 food
Tastes Choke Tolerate Guzzle Choke Tolerate Guzzle Choke Tolerate Guzzle
Growth 1% 2% 3% 4% 5% 6% 9% 12% 15.5%
Coins 2k-26k 5k-35k 6k-59k 8k-52k 11k-70k 13k-118k 39k-236k

Baby chinchompas ate five of a single food type at a time, young chinchompas ate ten of a single food at once, and adult chinchompas consumed 25 of one food each time.

As you fed your baby chinchompa the type of food it likes the most, a text message appeared saying: "Your chinchompa guzzles down 5 [type of food] happily - It must really like them!", and money was added to the player's money pouch

While you could reduce the chinchompa's hunger by feeding it with your POH pet feeder, it did not grow if you choose to do so.

A player could raise and explode a maximum of 3 chinchompas over the course of the event, although only one could be raised at a time. Once the player had exploded 3 chinchompas, no further chinchompas, chinchompa food, or chronometers appeared on the Squeal of Fortune. Naturally, this meant any extra chinchompa food or chronometers that the player possesses after the third chinchompa explodes were wasted, except after 16 September when the items can be destroyed for cash.

Rewards on Explosion

After the golden chinchompa finally exploded, you would be rewarded with 2 to 3 items from the below table (based on your total level), a large amount of coins (up to 4.5m with a total level of 2595) and a chinchompa gravestone that can be placed in the garden of your player owned house or in the grass outside.

One of the items in the table below was also received when your baby golden chinchompa grows into a young chinchompa, and then again when it grows into an adult.

Dialogue

Trivia

  • The login message is a reference to the South Park derived meme [1] widely used to satirise the business plans of the dot.com bubble companies which had no discernible monetisation phase.
  • Golden chinchompas may not be fed to a baby troll. Attempting to do so prompts the dialogue: Golden chinchompas are far too rare to feed to a troll.
  • There used to be a glitch while using a monkey greegree; if you fed your chinchompa, the money it gave was placed in your inventory and you would get a message saying your money pouch was full, even if it wasn't.
  • Despite the golden chinchompa being removed, the food is still in the game.
