FEATURE The full CasinoRPG experience is now fully compatible with mobile devices through the browser, so you can now play on the go!
  • Everything has been scaled to to fit the small screen, from casino games and missions to the floor and lot editors and everywhere in-between.

  • Updated the layouts of some features/games to work better on mobile devices (where just scaling wasn't ideal).

  • Added a quick play menu that makes it easier to get into games when on small screens.

  • Tested to work on recent models of iPhones, iPads and Android phones/tablets.

  • The e-bars menu button has been removed and the Crews/Condo buttons have been turned into apps on your phone.

  • This is the culmination of months of work and required updates to nearly everything in the game. Because of this, there will be bugs and things that can be improved. We greatly appreciate any reports of these issues/ideas (no matter how big or small).
FEATURE The GoldFire platform has been largely unchanged since its first release in 2012. GoldFire 2.0 is a complete re-imagining of what it could be and has been re-built from the ground up based on everything we've learned and all of the feedback received in those 5 years.
  • Mobile Support - Every feature has been designed around mobile in mind, meaning the full toolbar and site will work just as well on small screens as it does on large.

  • New Toolbar - The toolbar has been moved from the bottom of the screen to the right side, giving us significantly more room to work with. Every feature is now accessible and fully live updating without ever leaving your game.

  • Private Chat - Private chat with your friends has been overhauled to more closely resemble a messaging app on your phone. It is much easier to read with full screen height display, includes an emoji keyboard and image/video embedding. It also now enables group chat instead of strictly one-to-one.

  • Notifications - The full notification history can now be viewed right from the toolbar, and clicking on notifications will take you to the associated view (chat, forum, profile, game, etc). There's also a new popup notification in the bottom right of the screen (can be disabled in settings).

  • Forums - The forums are now streamlined to more closely resemble a public chat thread than traditional forums. You never have to leave the game to check the forums, and even clicking links to forum posts will open them from the toolbar rather than in a new window!

  • Social Feed - This is now accessed from the forums tab and includes image/video embedding, emojis, vastly improved commenting and the ability to like posts. In addition, there are some new automated posts such as when you open a casino or win a jackpot.

  • Leaderboards - You can now easily see your current rankings for every leaderboard by opening the new leaderboards tab. Clicking on a category will give you a scrollable list along with toggles to jump to yourself, show only friends and also show monthly ranking for every category (not just overall ranking like before).

  • Profiles - Profiles are now also viewed from the toolbar and show largely the same information as before (though in a better format and faster to load). In addition, you can view each player's rankings for each game by viewing their games.

  • Info - Each game has an info button in the bottom right of the screen that gives various information and actions. You can access feedback and support, see how many and which players are online, access the news or guide pages and much more.

  • Store - The store has one of the most significant changes in that we've decided to remove the concept of GoldFire Gold. Ultimately, the Gold concept caused more confusion than the intended benefits, so we decided it made sense to simplify the whole process. We've done a 1-to-1 conversion of everyone's Gold balances to the premium currency in their most active game; however, if you wanted some other action taken, please contact us and we'll get you taken care of. Additionally, you can now manage saved credit cards and view your full purchase history.
