In order to play Coin Rush, players will need to stock up on Rubies, one of Mario Kart Tour’s premium currencies. When used, Rubies will unlock the ability to play Coin Rush and also allow you to spend more Rubies to up the modifier on the race, allowing your coins to be worth much more when you pick them up.
