Hamster Kombat is the latest Telegram-based gaming sensation, recapturing the Notcoin clicker vibes with the promise of a token launch and airdrop on The Open Network ahead.

But there’s more happening with Hamster Kombat than just clicking or tapping a screen to rack up coins. As the hamster CEO of a fictional crypto exchange (yes, really), it’s your job to boost your up-and-coming startup to the top of the industry, and you’ll do so by investing in things like marketing, licenses, talent, new products, and beyond.

And for daily players, there’s one seriously huge benefit you shouldn’t miss: A daily combo promotion that rewards you with 5 million free coins for investing in certain upgrades. It’s a win-win that’ll boost your in-game treasury while increasing your passive earnings, and should ultimately benefit you in the eventual token airdrop.

Here’s what you need to know about the Hamster Kombat daily combo.


What is the daily combo?

Each day, Hamster Kombat introduces a new daily combo—a set of three upgrades to your exchange that’ll earn you a massive haul of 5 million free in-game coins.

To earn the coins, you’ll need to either buy or level-up the three upgrades in question. For example, the daily combo today—as of this posting—is: KYB, Tokenomics Expert, and TG Leaders. If you buy or level-up these items before the next daily combo begins, then you’ll get 5 million coins in your account.

All of this happens within the “Mine” tab of the mini app, with the cards listed under the various categories: Markets, PR & Team, Legal, and Specials. Some of these items can only be unlocked after you invite friends into the game, while others can just be purchased outright with your mined in-game coins.

Sometimes cards have a cooldown period after buying or upgrading, as seen in the previous set of screenshots, perhaps because they provide especially lucrative passive earnings. Also, some of the Special cards are limited-time offers that apparently won’t be up for grabs again—so if you didn’t buy it while it was available, then you’re out of luck that day.


How do I learn the latest daily combo?

Good question! We can answer this one for the moment, at least. For Sunday, June 30, the daily combo is the following: KYB, Tokenomics Expert, and TG Leaders (as seen below). Upgrade those and you'll get your 5 million coin bonus.

What about tomorrow and beyond? Hamster Kombat won’t tell you, so you can either buy and level-up items and cards in a trial-and-error process… or you can turn to the internet.

With millions of daily players hyped over the upcoming airdrop, it’s no surprise that there’s a cottage industry of social media accounts building up engagement by sharing the latest daily combo. Here’s one Twitter account that has reliably been sharing the daily combo, for example, but we’ve seen many similar accounts, as well as posts on TikTok and elsewhere.

If you’re serious about playing Hamster Kombat ahead of the airdrop, you’ll want to make the daily combo part of your regular routine. It’s a huge stash of free coins you can either hold onto or reinvest in your fictional operation to boost your passive earnings.

And be sure to do the daily cipher too, which will give you another 1 million daily coins for something that takes only a moment. Here's our guide for that free opportunity.
