VALENTINE'S DAY PROMO: The loving holiday of Valentine's Day is coming up on Thursday, February 14. For 24 hours only, a very limited edition slots item will be available for purchase (or until they sell out). We'll release a batch of 100 of the item every 2 hours throughout the day so every timezone gets a chance. These are on a first come, first serve basis with a limit of 5 per person, per batch.

FEATURE We've been collecting all of your feedback on the crew wars and have created a new war experience that is a lot more fun and a lot more fair! The new system does away with teams (which means nobody has to be on the bench) in favor of an "all out war" system. The points/chips buy-in is now awarded at the end to the top 10% of individual players, similar to how payouts in a poker tournament work (it gets split between the players and their crew). Team challenges are now within your crew since there are no longer teams. Be sure to check the guide or open the "war info" button for all of the details.
FEATURE There are two new trophy items available as part of crew wars. The first you win by placing in the top 10% and the other you win by completing your scorecard each day of the war (personal challenges and bonus challenges).
FEATURE There is now a "war raffle" that awards free casino points to random online war participants all throughout the duration of the war.
FEATURE Due to the war changes, we had to also make some changes to the crew rankings. The previous update was meant to simplify the rankings, but we didn't take it far enough. The rankings are now based on a simple accumulating score total (which means it can never drop). The values that make up this score are listed in the game guide so you can calculate exactly what you need to move up.
FEATURE The monthly crew rankings have also been simplified to work like individual monthly rankings. They now reset at the start of each month and are simply a total of the score your crew has earned within each calendar month.
FEATURE The mini-map has been overhauled to use an isometric view rather than a top-down view, so it now correctly matches the view of the world. This lets you see more in the same area and also makes it easier to navigate with everything aligned.
FEATURE The real estate office's map has also been overhauled to now use the regular mini-map. This means that you can now view the entire city and buy any lot from any real estate building.
FEATURE The real estate office's map now also includes a button to jump to the closest available lot from your current map location.
UPDATE The "wars" stat in crew info has been replaced with "war winners" which shows how many members have placed in a war.
UPDATE Tweaked the battle/war scoring on solitaire, blackjack and roulette to be more in-line with the other challenges.
UPDATE Various updates and improvements to the Windows Store app (only on Windows 10).
UPDATE When a casino is sold, any floors with VIP status will have their lists reset.
UPDATE Added the keyboard shortcut "H" to get a hint while playing solitaire.
UPDATE Overhauled the new player tutorials to better introduce new players to the various aspects of the game.
FIX In rare instances, away players wouldn't get removed when they should from poker tournaments.
FIX Issue that could sometimes cause a table in a poker tournament to not start.
FIX The contract timer now starts when you first place the contractor rather than on purchase. This also fixes an issue that could cause contracts to get stuck on your head.
FIX Using the "hint" option in solitaire could sometimes cause the game to freeze.
FIX The Battle tab in crew windows would sometimes go blank randomly.
FIX Instant upgrades on items would sometimes show a cost of 0 and a time of null when going in/out of the editor.
FIX Indoor beam lights were not showing the option to replace when they were broken.
FIX Various other bug fixes and tweaks throughout the game.
January 23, 2019 @ 11:39 AM
FEATURE A new "lock party bombs" setting has been added to the game settings that prevents you from accidentally setting off party bombs with a mis-click.
FEATURE Two new items have been added to Party Bombs and Daily Slots: B&W Slots and Purple Beam Light.
FEATURE Previously, touch-screen users were unable to use local chat due to lack of keyboard. Now, you can click on yourself to reveal a chat button that will open the local chat input.
UPDATE The time limits on buying lots/casinos have been overhauled to be applied evenly across all players. Instead of a time limit between each purchase, you are now limited to increasing your total number of lots/casinos by 5 each month. For example, if you were to sell 2 casinos, you could buy 7 others (net increase would then be 5 casinos for the month).
UPDATE Limits on favorites have been increased from 50 to 100 and 100 to 250 for citizens.
UPDATE There is now a 3rd time for the Turbo Trophy Fridays poker tournament that is at 12PM game time (first one will be scheduled after the next round of Friday tournaments).
UPDATE The crew bank history now shows the time of last deposit overall and for the last week.
FIX Floors that had thousands of items on them from party bombs would often cause significant performance degradation due to the limits of browser rendering. We've updated floors to now only render up to 3 items on a single floor tile at a time, which should significantly improve performance issues in those scenarios. The items are still there, they just won't become visible until others on that tile have been collected.
FIX In rare instances, a casino could see its cheating costs shoot up significantly for a short period of time, which should now be resolved.
FIX The winner of a slot sprint would sometimes not be shown, which would also prevent the re-invite option from showing.
FIX Some crew's member lists couldn't be scrolled all the way through.
FIX The notch on iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XR running iOS 12 no longer covers up a portion of the game/toolbar.
FIX Switching games with the "games" menu while in another game would cause you to get stuck in the first.
FIX Depth sorting of some long items in the floor editor should now be fixed.
January 5, 2019 @ 2:58 PM
UPDATE We've reached a point where there are so many casinos in the game world that the simulation server was crashing, causing various issues. We've overhauled how the simulation is run so that it can now scale to a nearly limitless number of casinos (we won't bore you with the technical aspects of how we managed this).
UPDATE Submitted updates to both the iOS and Android apps that make several improvements and fixes (should be available in the next few days). The updates only support iOS 11+ and Android 5+ in order to provide a better app experience.
UPDATE Overhauled the real estate fee structure to lower the fees in general and also make the difference based on location not as significant as it was before.
UPDATE The item gifting limit per user has been changed to a daily limit rather than every 24 hours.
FIX It was sometimes possible to end up with two buildings on the same lot.
FIX The GoldFire toolbar on the mobile apps would sometimes get stuck in the middle of the screen.
FIX Various keyboard issues on the mobile apps.
FIX The auction house didn't adjust correctly to smaller screens.
FIX Panning around a casino floor on a touch screen no longer accidentally triggers a casino game or other action.
FIX A rare instance that could allow a crew with less than 3 members available to battle.
FIX Various visual glitches and improvements.

FEATURE Tired of waiting for others to join you for a round of bingo? That wait is now over as we've built bots into bingo that will play with you until other real players join to take their spots!
FEATURE Items in your vault can now be directly gifted to your friends for a small postage fee! Simply go to their profile and click on the "Send Gift" option in the actions list (previously "transfer chips"). You can also still send chips through this same window.
FEATURE Party Bombs can now be purchased in packs of 5 (with a wait time of 50 minutes).
FEATURE Each player now has an "available for battle" toggle from their crew's battle window. Toggling this off will prevent you from being able to participate in any battles that occur while it is unchecked, but it also lowers your team's "active" count which is used to determine team size. So, if any of your crew members won't be available for a battle, you can still start a battle challenge without worrying about being at a disadvantage.
FEATURE There is now the option to cancel a battle challenge for a full refund before a match has been made with another crew.
FEATURE There are now descriptions for medals in both your profile window and on the list of medals accessed via the toolbar (some are still kept a secret until you unlock them).

PROMO ITEM VOTING: With Halloween right around the corner, we are looking for your help in selecting the best limited edition items. Click the icon to the right of your Casino Points to see the options and cast your vote.

FEATURE The "battles" crew setting has been removed in favor of a simplified battle challenging system. If your crew wants to battle, you simply start a challenge and then the matching process will begin (matching you with another crew that has started a battle challenge and is pending a match). If your crew doesn't want to battle, then you don't have to do anything.
UPDATE Due to the change to the battle system, selecting a bet amount no longer made sense. The buy-in for battles is now set at 50,000 chips per battle participant (paid from the crew bank). The payout still works the same as before.
UPDATE The concept of battle protection has been removed since you can no longer get challenged without actively starting your own battle challenge.

This feature has now been ported to all platforms! When selecting a game, you will be sent to a random casino and auto-walk to the machine/table (you can even do this from inside your condo or another casino).
FEATURE For those that would like extra security on their account, there is now an option in the GoldFire settings (click your avatar on the toolbar) to enable Two-Factor Login. When enabled, logging in from a new browser/device will require a 6-digit code sent to your e-mail in order to finish logging in. This prevents someone from logging into your account even if they get your password.
FEATURE A yellow shark display item has been added to the mix in the Auction House items.
FEATURE A new super turbo poker tournament has been added called Super Sundays.
UPDATE The kick list on a hosted poker table now gets cleared when the host leaves the table.
