Balloon Pop ponies

Please don't tell me that the only way to win Snails, Time Turner, and the other ponies unlocked via Balloon Pop is to play the gem/heart versions...

You can cheat them ( except for snails ) by disabling wifi/internet. On the IPhone, just turn on airplane mode, exit the game and re enter and instead of balloon game you can just flat out purchase them with bits.

I bought up the Caramel before I realized it was a bug or whatever. I thought it was some sort of special deal I missed lol.

I was able to purchase Dr. Whooves with bits after a while somehow.

Does anyone know if they're winnable in the free version of the Balloon Pop, though? Or is it just the gem/heart versions? That exploit is good to know, though, and I might try that if it turns out that you can't win them in the free version.

I presume it's the free version. If you look at the balloons on the character it shows the ones used for the free version.

It doesn't help though that the gems version has a picture of Celestia on it suggesting characters can come from it though. =/

in all my time playing free balloon pop, i've NEVER gotten anything other than bits and shards. i've played it at least 30 times now. i think i can safely say that if ponies can be acquired from the free balloon pop then there's a very low chance of them appearing. that's if they even appear at all.

i accidentally played the gem version once (20 gems down the drain... T.T) and got snips.

Oh, so that's what causes it? Poor Snails, destined to be forever alone...

It seems that the same bug also causes Soarin and Fleetfoot to swap their prices, with the end result that Soarin could potentially be obtained without the use of gems. Of course, with my luck they'll have already patched this situation long before I can raise enough bits to afford him. (I just got Applejack a couple of hours ago, so I'm not exactly raking in the dough yet!)

What a bizarre glitch - surely there's no possible way they could have missed this during testing?

This glitch also apparently allows you to purchase Soarin for bits instead of Gems.
