How To Win Special Events Without Spending Gold

Like I said in the beginning, it’s possible to complete any special event without spending any Gold on the “Fast Track To PR” (basically the Gold package to buy to unlock the car faster that will be really expensive.

So, here are my top tips to do it.

#1 – Event Credits

You need to get event tickets (the currency in special events) to get upgrades for the leaned car to upgrade it to the PR you need to complete all races – and you have limited time and amounts of races to get it.

This is the basic thing you need to understand, so you need to get as many of them as possible and the only way to do that is doing as many races you possibly can.

This is your primary goal and practically all my tips here are for that.

You can do one race every 45 minutes, this means you can do up to 17 races within one day.

  • A 5-Day Special Event has 52 and you can do 85 races in that time
  • A 7-Day Special Event has 67 races in total and you can do 119 races in that time

You see there are plenty of races and this leads me to the main tip to complete the special events

#2 – Re-Play Races

You can re-playalready completed races and that’s what you need to do with the additional tickets you have during the special event.

  • A 5-Day Special Event let you re-play races from Day 1+
  • A 7-Day Special Event let you re-play races from Day 3+

Now here’s the thing, you will be stronger than you need to at some point so when you re-play a race, you will be easily able to win it.

And you need to win it to not lose any credits, but you should also focus on doing drifts, jumps and near-misses as much as you can because each of them will give you extra event credits that you need to upgrade your special event car to meet the final PR needed.

This is one of the keys and the only thing that will let you complete the special event without spending any Gold!

Tip #3 – Lose-To-Win

You might have recognized in the previous tip that you can’t re-play races in the first two days of 7-Day special events – but you will have additional tickets to race that you would just flush down the toilet.

There’s a strategy that’s called “Lose-to-Win” and it uses the fact that you will still get event credits for not winning a race.

During 7-Day Special Events you should lose races on purpose to use all your tickets and earn event credits while doing drifts, jumps and near-misses. Once you’ve won a race you’re not able to play it again to farm the vent tickets there – so just lose them in the first two days and finish them later when you have races that you can re-play.

Don’t forget to finish them before the vent finishes 😉

Tip #4 – Pimp My Ride PR

You will always see the point where your PR is not high enough to meet the requirements and there’s a simple way to push it faster.

Use all your extra event credits earned through re-playing races in the vent store to first upgrade top speed, this has the highest impact on your cars PR – after that acceleration and nitro has the lowest impact.

If you follow this you will get a higher PR faster and be able to complete the special event 🙂

Keep in mind, if there’s nothing that will suit your wait until the store refreshes (every full hour) and check back if there’s something more interesting you can get for your event credits.


If you follow this and constantly play with your tickets, you will be able to finish every special event in Need for Speed No Limits 🙂

  1. The lose to win doesn’t work anymore it does not give you event currency I tried it today on the new event and I stayed after I intentionally lost 2 races

  2. @Tlange – Still working dude, lose to win’s a farming credit “cash” event- nothing more. You need to calculate a time daily. Watch adds to cut time refresh for new ticket.
    Nice tutorial i got Hennessy, One:1, F1 LM, i need more.

  3. Even though I got the point your calculation of the number of possible races per day is unclear. Event tickets are added every 55min, not 45min (any more). Hence, it takes 4h35m to get 5 tickets. If one wouldn‘t sleep more than 4.5 hours he could make 26 races per day. With 8 hrs. sleep rather than 4.5 hrs. he would loose 4 tickets and could therefore race 22 times at max.

    Could you make it clearer how you calculate the possible number of races in your text? Thanks.

  4. Great hints, thank you for that!

    It would be great to have a more detailed overview of the races in these special events. Like how long is the track which usually helps to get an idea about which of the races should be used for „lose to win“. Is 2k event money a good value or would it be possible to get 3k in the next challenge (or is it hardly 1k there)?

    That would be a great help.
