UPDATE This represents is the largest performance update since CasinoRPG was in beta testing! We re-thought and re-wrote big chunks of our game engine to improve RAM, CPU and power usage. While everyone should see an improvement, the difference should be most obvious on lower-end devices like phones, tablets, Chromebooks, etc. From our testing we've seen a performance improvement anywhere from 25-75% across the board. This update touches literally every aspect of the game, and as such, there are bound to be some visual glitches we missed in testing. Please submit tickets with any issues you see, no matter how big or small.
UPDATE Players can now carry multiple party bombs at the same time. If you have multiple, a red counter will display on the bomb. When you set one off, the counter will go down and you can set the next one off in order. This also fixes issues with winning party bombs when you already have one from daily slots.
UPDATE Added option to create poker cash games for 4 and 2 players.
UPDATE You can now only signup for up to 5 poker tournaments at a time.
FIX Rare issue in Jungle Slots that would cause your auto spins to reset after bonus spins.
FIX Lot items now show the correct level when moved out of the vault.
FIX Royal Flush jackpot is now correctly awarded in CP tournaments.
FIX The counter showing the number of players in bingo now shows the correct number.
FIX A few colors of the wall divider items were invisible.
FIX Various issues with poker banking protection showing the wrong amount when trying to buy back in.
FIX Refreshing the game before turning in a slot addict mission no longer causes it to fail.
FIX Tweaked down the odds of gull attack power-ups in bingo.
FIX Treasure chest display sometimes wouldn't show after reloading in bingo.
FIX Rare issue that would sometimes prevent free daily spins from opening when picking up multiple from party bomb.
FIX Dozens of other bug fixes around the game (mostly visual glitches in rare instances).

CasinoRPG Turns 3!
April 16, 2017 @ 12:00 AM
Today marks 3 years since the end of beta testing on CasinoRPG! The game has evolved significantly in this time, and we want to thank everyone that has been a part of that, whether you've been here since beta or are a newer addition to the community. We've gotten to know a lot of you over the years and it has been a joy for all of us at GoldFire Studios to continue building the best game possible for all of you. Your continued support allows us to continue developing great new features, and we can't wait for you to see what we've got in the works now and into the future!

FEATURE There is now a lobby accessible from all slot games. From the lobby you can see a listing of the different available slot games and then click one to take you straight there. When you change slot games, you'll be taken to a random casino with that slot game and automatically walk up to it.
FEATURE Another addition to the new lobby is slot tournaments! These are very similar to slot sprints, but they can handle up to 100 participants and are scheduled in advance just like the poker tournaments. You can see a listing of upcoming tournaments from the lobby display and signup/withdraw from there.
FEATURE Automatic party chat is now built into the global chat system. When joining a sprint mission or a slot tournament, you will automatically be added into a party. When you open global chat there will now be a "party" tab jut like with crews or wars. You can also chat with this party using the "/p" slashcode in quick chat. The party chat will then automatically close 90 seconds after the conclusion of the sprint or tournament.
FEATURE Citizenship now offers a new perk: hosted poker tables. If you are a citizen and you start your own poker table, you are now marked as the "host" of that table. The host then has the ability to kick another player from that table, and they won't be able to join that particular table again. If the host leaves the table then it becomes a normal table and nobody can be kicked.
UPDATE Private chat, social feed and forums now support embedding of Twitch channels/videos.

FIX Various issues causing the toolbar counters (notifications, private chat) to get out of sync.

v1.3.3 (April Fools!)
April 1, 2017 @ 12:08 AM
FEATURE We are thrilled to announce, after months of intense development and 3D modeling/animation, that the much anticipated dance feature has arrived! We've got a wide variety of dance moves for you, from moonwalk to moonwalk! And, since Watts continues to tease the Mayor for his severe lack of moonwalk-ability, we thought we'd make it so easy that you literally don't have to do anything to dance...because you are now ALWAYS moonwalking! Also, we hooked everyone up with some new outfits to match. Enjoy!
