When is Happy Hour and Mega Happy Hour? (55)

20.01.2010 00:07

NEW, IMPORTANT: Mega Happy Hour and Upgrading Bonus Hour events are now posted here. Click to read more.

We have created a monitoring service that watches Global America, Global America 2, USA (West), USA (East), Global Europe, Global Asia, Great Britain, Germany and Scandinavia servers and posts a tweet whenever there is a Happy Hour or Mega Happy Hour detected.

Events are posted on Twitter in darkorbit_happy account.

Donate to keep it alive. If you won’t – no one will!

If this service helps you save some money – don’t be greedy. A Paypal donation of any amount will be appreciated.

NOTE: minimum donation for mega premium account is 5€. Thank you very much for your support, this site has been online since 2010, and you can be part of this good happening :)

Is it still active and working?

We started our monitoring on 20 January 2010. Here is date and hour of last monitoring operation: 26 June 2017 09:00 GMT. Last detected event was on 24 June 2017 02:00 GMT (updated automatically). To convert GMT to your own time zone you can use GMT official site.

How do I use this tweet?

If you are playing on the servers we are monitoring and you want to spend some money to get a better ship or some extras then this is for you.

What’s so special about HH and MHH?

If you want to buy game currency – Uridium for real cash (and a lot of us do) then regardless of how you buy it (with SMS, Paypal or credit card) –
during Happy Hour – amount will be doubled
during Mega Happy Hour – amount will be tripled.

So, say if with one SMS you can buy 5.000 Uridium regularly then during Mega Happy Hour you will get 15.000 Uridium by sending the same SMS.

When will be next happy hour?

These are completely random events and only BigPoint knows when they will happen. They are not advertised nor announced anywhere beforehand.

In Twitter we let you know as soon as an ongoing event is detected. It’s a whole hour, so you will definitely have time to buy some Uridium.

What if I have a banking multiplier?

Banking multipliers are put on hold during these hours. They will not disappear, but they won’t be used either.
Banking multipliers are given out relatively often during special events, like Halloween – you need to complete very easy missions and you get a banking multiplier (usually a doubler). Banking multipliers can also be found in Bonus boxes.

How to understand Twitter messages?

If you log into Twitter (and in the Settings you have set the correct time zone for your account) – it will show you correct time of our tweets, for example, if it says 10 minutes ago we posted a message “Happy hour is NOW on Global Asia …” and current time is 10:20 am (10:20 – 10min = 10:10 am), so you know that right now there is a happy hour on the specified server. On other hand if Twitter message says that it was posted 50 minutes ago and now its 11:15 am (11:15 am – 50min = 10:25 am), then you can logically conclude that you have missed the happy hour, which was from 10:00 – 11:00.

To understand our tweets you have to use both: time of our tweet and your current time in a logical fashion.

Happy hunting!

    I would like to have a notification of any type for each upcoming event plz. My email is patrick_grant_0020,yahoo,com

  2. DO BIBLE, 12.07.2010 @ 20:58

    Good for U! I want a new iphone, doesn’t seem that I will get one thou. :)

    During the first half of this year I have received 1 donation from a guy in Australia in amount of 1 EUR from which I got 61cents ;) But I really appreciate the gesture!

    Have you at least made a donation of a EURo to show appreciation for this work? I didn’t think so.. so we all keep wanting…

    Alternatively you can use google to search for something like: http://www.google.com/search?q=Receive+Tweets+via+email

  3. Joe Rivera, 14.07.2010 @ 01:25

    I love DarkOrbit Happy on twitter, thank you guys so much for this :)

  4. lesdaboss2010, 13.08.2010 @ 18:04

    I understand and appreciate the idea of having a HH/MHH announcement tweet, but if you have to log into twitter or email to see if there is a HH/MHH event then you may as well log staright into DO.. what’s the difference?
    This would work a lot better if there were text announcements

  5. DO BIBLE, 14.08.2010 @ 18:32

    lesdaboss2010: There are ways to receive tweets on your mobile, e.g.: http://www.tweetsms.com/. I’ve never tried it, but it seems to offer what you want.

  6. CoreXBoss, 31.08.2010 @ 23:58

    Thanks for the hour will be happen MHH :)

    darkorbit_happy its the best!

  7. Techguy, 01.09.2010 @ 01:28

    To lesdaboss2010 and everyone else: you can get all these tweets sent to your phone for just the cost of a standard text message charge unless it is in your plan in which case it is free. All you have to do is activate your number on twitter and have the tweets from DO happy sent to the phone. I never miss a HH or MHH. BTW thank you very much DO Happy for this service you offer all of us DO players. I know a simple thank you is not as good as a monetary donation but we do all appreciate it and sure to donate if we didnt spend it all on DO ;)

  8. Haze, 03.09.2010 @ 00:37

    LesdaBoss, I will make a donation at mod September and ecourage my members to also do the
    I understand and respect the time and effort in you helping us
    save money! So you can look for a decent donation better than 1 euro and not to take away from the
    guy who donated.

  9. Haze, 03.09.2010 @ 00:40

    Oh and sorry for the choppy typos on my iPhone and a train so it
    is difficult to type standing up but u r in my budget!
    Because if we loose this than DO will be to expensive to play and not practical

  10. Markus, 06.09.2010 @ 15:13

    Hey can you monitor skandi server? I would donate, but i have no credit card. I can sand an SMS for your Darkorbit account instead :D

  11. boomer, 19.09.2010 @ 15:18

    DO BIBLE, I would like to thank you for all those usefull info that i ve found on your site…

    i would donate but i dont have a credit card sorry…

  12. DO BIBLE, 19.09.2010 @ 16:13

    None of us has a credit card, when we need to donate! That’s the fact of life! ;)

  13. Cesar, 28.09.2010 @ 15:24

    i want to know if i buy a ultimate card and theres is Mega happy hour can i redeem them and get the x3? i mean i have 5 card its 100 dolar equal 330 mil uri equal 900 mil uri

  14. Dark Orbit Scandi, 24.11.2010 @ 23:33

    If i sign up for the SMS system can i cancel it later?

  15. DO BIBLE, 25.11.2010 @ 10:50

    If you mean twitter sms – then u have to ask them. I’m pretty sure you can cancel anytime, but I have never tried it…

  16. Dark Orbit Scandi, 27.11.2010 @ 07:07

    No I mean the SMS that sends directly to your phone. Cause I may not need it later on and I might want to cancel it

  17. DO BIBLE, 27.11.2010 @ 14:05

    Again, we don’t send any SMS – we post events on Twitter.

  18. Busyend[MMO], 18.03.2011 @ 23:10

    Do you monitor USA east 2?

  19. DO BIBLE, 19.03.2011 @ 01:51

    Busyend[MMO]: No, but the events are probably at the same time as USA (East), you should just wait and see.

  20. ARK-ANGEL, 28.03.2011 @ 15:56

    if you play on the gb1 server if u also have a germany server 1 acc if its a hh or mhh on the german one then next hour it will be a mhh or hh on the gb1 server. go marm clan gb1 :)

  21. YOYO, 07.05.2011 @ 00:28

    Is still working your service?

  22. DO BIBLE, 07.05.2011 @ 01:07

    YOYO: There was an HDD crash on Apr 28, and it was not working until today. BTW: You can always see the actual date of the monitoring process last run in the original post under “Is it still active and working?” (!) It is updated in real time, by the process that monitors Happy Hours, so if you see todays date – then yes – it is still working.

  23. YOYO, 07.05.2011 @ 19:57

    Thank you (sorry for my english)

  24. YDJLuV, 12.05.2011 @ 20:00

    DO BIBLE, this is really a great service you provide here and I know there is operating cost involved in keeping this server up and running. Also, I’m sure that there was coding involved making this service work. Great job and I guarantee you I will make a donation in the next few weeks to help you out. It seems that most people may appreciate the service but they dont understand the cost of hosting and the time it takes to code such scripts.. :)

  25. DO BIBLE, 13.05.2011 @ 02:40

    YDJLuV: Thank you. It’s hard not to appreciate a verbal endorsement.

  26. xxnightstalkerxx, 23.05.2011 @ 09:09

    can you guys also monitor global america 3 ?

  27. DO BIBLE, 23.05.2011 @ 10:00

    xxnightstalkerxx: There is not much point monitoring everything – most of the time events are at the same time on several servers. Try checking if your event is not at the same time as on Global America, Global America 2.

  28. Xxnightstalkerxx, 23.05.2011 @ 10:33


  29. PapaRock, 03.06.2011 @ 15:11

    Hey! I’m spanish.. but I play in USA (east) 3… can you say to me.. what day is the Mega Happy Our in USA east) 3?? please… Sundays.. Saturdays..fridays? thanks!!

  30. colim, 04.06.2011 @ 22:30

    Is there one for global america 3?

  31. Thymol, 25.09.2011 @ 22:19

    Um idk how to set up the tome correctly

  32. Ghiamonster, 05.11.2011 @ 05:13

    Has DO changed something that you’re triggering from? I haven’t gotten ANY notifications since Oct. 25. There have been 2 HH and 1 MHH that had NO notification.

  33. DO BIBLE, 05.11.2011 @ 05:32

    Ghiamonster: Take a look at “Is it still active and working?” – you can see that it stopped working on Oct 26 ….

    I’m currently in process of evaluating whether to restore it or not. Haven’t gotten any donations nor any money from it whatsoever in AGES! :)

  34. Ghiamonster, 06.11.2011 @ 22:18

    Huh. All it said was last DETECTED event was Oct. 26. I would like to donate but if you’re not planning to restore, no point. To bad…was nice.

  35. DO BIBLE, 07.11.2011 @ 06:30

    No, you should look at “last monitoring operation: 26 October 2011 13:00 GMT” – that is when the process was last run.

    Thing is I can restore ir pretty easily (I believe) but I need a different monetraization model. I don’t really need to suck money (a few bucks) out of you, i’m a whore, but not that cheap! ;)) (I’m talkin about myself here, not about you). Anyways, I was thinking about making another twitter account with a password to join and publishing MEGA HAPPY HOUR EVENTS ONLY there and then i don’t know, put a price on it, say 2, maybe 5 euros to join (for a lifetime), something like that. If that is technically possible with twitter. I know that the more expensive the club is to join, the more exclusive it is and the more Status you get being a member, so 5EUR maybe is a good idea, it’s not that much, but it’s more than 2… i don’t know. What do you think?
    The monitoring has worked for 1,5 years, so i think the service would be reliable enough and would work at least for that long.
    Your ideas ar welcome! :)

    This started out as a hobby, but now it’s getting a bit boring and I made myself a policy – if you hate it – increase the price! (money you receive for it!)

  36. Ghiamonster, 07.11.2011 @ 16:09

    Now THAT I would definitely do! Sorry for the misunderstanding, I’d actually thought you had something that was automatically triggering based on something DO was putting out. If you’re MANUALLY monitoring the darn thing, then yeah, charge for your time! :)

  37. DO BIBLE, 07.11.2011 @ 20:45

    Ghiamonster: Now I have to say sorry for misunderstating. :) It is automatic for sure, i’m simply thinking how to make a few bucks with it. During the years I had to change it a few times and adapt. What I’m saying is that I need a motivation to waste any time with it whatsoever… ADs here don’t make any money, maybe 10$ a year – pays for the domain name. sooo….
    It is automatic, but I make around 40$/eur an hour, so to restore and make it worthilie for me I need say 2 hours, so i would need say 80$ = 16ppl to join the MEGA HAPPY hour anouncement ‘club’ – twitter account. What do you think about it? :) would you join for 5euros? no obligations, just a question. :)

  38. Ghiamonster, 09.11.2011 @ 23:33

    I’d invest. As you indicated, people save a lot in knowing when the next HH/MHH is, so a $/Euro or 2 (or 5 ;) ) wouldn’t be too much to ask.

  39. MirnaLeland, 12.11.2011 @ 07:17

    Greetings all members – I am a new member on your message board therefore I believe I would do best to tell you a bit about myself. Here goes, I’m 26 years old, a guy, plus I study physics at my school. I for sure look forward chatting with all you older members! Bye!

  40. ~ForsakenAngel~, 17.11.2011 @ 13:09

    why dont u do it on facebook makes it alot easier for usa west but then again all i need is iris and bio points now at30 bio points and 7 iris next is final iris and apis

  41. MelvinCiraw, 18.11.2011 @ 15:34

    What’s up all members – I am a recently registered participant on this here board and I believe I ought to mention a couple things about myself. Well, I am 22 years old, a girl, plus I study oriental studies at my university. I definitely anticipate eagerly talking with you folks. Arrivederci for now!

  42. Hedge_Engel, 21.01.2012 @ 11:02

    I have no idea if this site is still running, but it seems like a great service.
    In order for you to get an income it would be easy via facebook, there you could make a group in which to post the information about current HH and MHH. Facebook now also has the option to send notifications via text message, and it can be configured to receive only notification of this group, for those who want to be alerted in their phones.
    Obviously the group would be private and to get in you charge a fee, let’s say 5 euros, after you confirm their payment you accept the person as member of the group.
    Hope you read this and consider it as an option to restore your sevice, in which case I would be greatly interested.

  43. Jaideepg, 04.03.2012 @ 20:44

    thanks u r da best

  44. gcjas1998, 08.03.2012 @ 23:10

    I can’t say taht i don’t appreciate your hard work to make this service but he has right,what IS the point?It is faster to log in to dark orbit to see if it is a happy or mega happy hour and buy uri than going to the twitter to see if there is one.It is one step more that you needn’t to do.I think it would be better if you could know from before at what time there is a hh\mhh.

  45. DO BIBLE, 09.03.2012 @ 07:42

    gcjas1998: Well :DD

    1) Don’t like it? Don’t use it. Don’t shit on it! ;)
    2) As discussed in here many times – you can setup twitter alerts to your mobile phone, to your email, to your TV, to your fridge and to your japanese toilet, so answer is no – you don’t have to log in every time to twitter.
    3) That’s the old age question – do you know when you will die? Do you know what will hapen tomorrow? If you do, I would be happy to tweet this information that you receive from your Clairvoyance gift/skill about HH and MHH. Let me know! ;)

  46. darklive, 15.03.2012 @ 11:53

    Darkorbit thanks

  47. timmy, 16.02.2013 @ 02:17

    ill donate if you add france servers…

  48. DO BIBLE, 16.02.2013 @ 15:39

    timmy: Which France do you use – france has 4 servers, or are all they the same?
    I believe that MHH in France is at the same time as in Germany.

  49. SENTINAL PRIME, 10.11.2013 @ 10:56

    u could be making plans to go out or doing gardening making dinner ect u wouldn’t know if d.o has mhh on but thru this your phone would go off u would look at it and then go to comp top up then get back to what u was doing its pretty neat

  50. gerard, 25.01.2015 @ 15:12

    Would be nice to know if the given GMT time is AM or PM

  51. DO BIBLE, 25.01.2015 @ 15:17

    Hi, What do you mean? It’s realtime, so when it happens you should be able to see the tweet in your local time.

  52. gerard, 25.01.2015 @ 21:33

    true but there is a 12 hour difference between AM and PM so that i know when to look for it, its no use to look at the tweet at 10 AM when it is 10 PM because i am not familiar with AM or PM we don’t have that even in local time there is a 12 hour difference

  53. DO BIBLE, 25.01.2015 @ 21:53

    I probably see what you mean. You are in Europe, but Twitter is in the States, so it shows you time in AM and PM and that is confusing.

    Let me explain the essence – when you receive the tweet – then the event is happening already, so AM or PM does not matter – its NOW. Then you just pick up your thing and log into the game to see what you wanna buy with a large discount. .

    If you’re unsure about AM and PM in general – just google it and you will get an answer.

  54. George, 05.05.2016 @ 21:15

    is there a minimum donation amount? and do you also give for free the MHH or still charge let me know im interested and have the money ready to pay

  55. DO BIBLE, 06.05.2016 @ 03:04

    As the page says there is a 5EUR minimum donation that gets you the access to the Mega and other bonus event notification tweets. You can check the Happy hour events – they are tweeted publicly.
