  • This game is really freaking good. Aug 22, 2019

    By iiSerpentKing
    A small fan of the TV show I found this game and thought what the heck, why nkt give it a try. The gameplay is fun and the random lockers keep you guessing, the best part is that the game has real stakes where at any moment you could either lose or gain a massive amount of money which keeps it interesting. The pawn shop update was pretty cool because it gives players the ability to target certain items while the bid on a unit because they can make more profit. The stakes get higher as the game progresses and the leagues made the game even more intense as you push yourself to be more aggressive with your bidding. Not to mention this game doesn’t need wifi connection and still adds your score to league while not online is awesome. My few complaints are that the total amount of energy you have is really small and as you progress further into the game you can only really bid at 2 locations and the cooldown on energy is so long that the next time you get to bid is like three hours down the road. Adding easier way to get energy like being able to buy upgrades to increase your max energy would be nice or at the very least shorten the time it takes you to gain energy. I understand it’s importance since without it you could blow through the entire game in a few days but I still would like energy to be a bit easier to obtain. Thanks :D

  • Game is good but devs need to bring out more content Jan 31, 2019

    By From vrgtrgr
    This is overall a great game however there are a few things that concern and I would like to put out. First off is the developers need to release more content quicker. Once you get to the end of the game there really isn’t much to do after. All there is to look forward is the daily, weekly and monthly bids. I’m at the end of Texas and it’s very boring playing the same level over and over again. I only get on now to play the daily mission. Next is the loot drop. I get the same three expensive (when I say expensive I’m talking about an item worth $6,000 or more) items in every game I play. There is no randomness to it and it’s very frustrating. There are seven items I haven’t unlocked yet and I’ve tried to go for them but since I get the same repetitive loot I don’t play too much now. Make all the items random so everything stays fresh. Lastly are the ads. Now I don’t mind watching an ad after each game if I’m able to buy a locker. If I wasn’t able to buy a locker then I shouldn’t have to watch an ad. There was a time where I played about five games and didn’t buy a single locker because the AI was driving the price up and made it too expensive but yet I still had to watch ads after each game. That frustrated me as well. Overall though this game is good. If you’re starting out you’ll have something to do for a while as it will take you a little time to get to the end of Texas but once you hit it the game will get very boring.

    Very addictive game,imaginative items for sale,however i have down graded it from 5 stars to 4,the video bonus glitches seem to have been fixed,and there are new games to play,however still no new cities to have a go at,and this has been the case for some time,you would think with the hours and hours of adverts on this app,they could afford to create new levels,gr8 game though,hence the reason i play everyday.

    So I found this game while I was just looking for something to pass the time. It is a great game to play I even got my wife to play it, it is a fast pace game which allows you to move up the ranks quickly. It also has a game within its self with the leagues and even if you lose the leagues you do it have to start back at square one which is really nice. The option to sell things in your pawn shop that you get later in the game is really nice you can make some good profit there and wait for the price that you would like to see your things sold for. The power ups that you can use to gain an edge are amazing as well just wish you could get more of them more often sometimes. In playing this game an idea has come to me that it would be cool if you could see how much money your opponents have brought with them because just like in real life sometimes they just try to keep biding to make it higher for the person who ultimately buys it and at that point it makes their person buying it have less money for the next auction. Even if it was a little bar with an approximate value that went with a high of green medium of yellow and low of red just to see if you thought they were trying to put bid you or raise the price. Just a thought love the game though.

    Great game to pass the time. The ads before the bid are a great add since the starting of this game. I found a bug just now that you can be opted out of the daily bid (the clock on the bottom left) and the game would think you already did it. Currently waiting for the reset 🙃

  • To power up dependent at later levels. Sep 22, 2018

    By dominionator
    I agree with an earlier review. The game starts of really well as you are able to win lockers at reasonable prices and make sometimes ok sometimes great profit. Once you hi New York though that all goes out the window. You must have power ups to know which lockers to get and to get them at a reasonable price to where you can make more that one to two hundred on a room. I saw a room that had a total of under two hundred in profit showing start off at $325 and en up going for $750 and still making a profit of $360 for the computer player. Where I on one locker used my last free power up the calculator to get how much a room is worth and because of the ai crazy bidding only made about $135 on a room that was calculated worth of $1551. At that rate it would take forever to get to the next level. Not to mention you only get 20 energy max and each round cost 7 energy so unless you want to buy more energy you can only do three rooms every hour plus. Or you can watch an advertisement for 5 energy which if you are paying attention isn’t even enough for a round. I just played 2 rounds 3 rooms each where the computer bought all 6 rooms and every single on of the lost money most by over $200. What a waste of time. Now I have to wait over another hour just to try 3 more times to get enough money to get past lvl 8. I bought 1 room out of 9 and made $150 dollars the other 8 as I was saying before the computer bought and lost money on. Ridiculous.

    addictive game, once you start playing it's hard to put it down...but the developers don't respond to your emails and ignore your requests. 2 stars is being nice, the only reason I gave it that much was because I like the game. Also it hasn't added new levels in a while which shows how much the developers actually care

    Its ok. But the AI will over bid by 100s of dollars almost everytime. So many times the player who gets 1st place wins because the three AI are all negative money. This makes it almost impossible to advance in the game as it takes SO many rounds to earn enough profit to move forward. Its a very planned feature of the game, but very frustrating as its a clear design to make the game take 100x longer to have a higher chance of frustrating players to the point of spending money

  • Fun but technical ‘bugs’ need work Apr 24, 2019

    By A0687
    This is a fun, addicting game but the technical glitches need attention. It costs 7 energy points to play 1 bidding round, yet at a full recharge your max energy is 20 - why not 21? You also only redeem 1 energy point per 6 minute interval. So, once you have used up your full energy bars (about 10 mins) it takes 42 mins just to play ONE additional round (7/20 versus 3; 20/20), that’s a bit ridiculous IMO. Also, my energy regenerates inconsistently. I went to work at 8am this morning and got home at 6:30 pm (10.5 hrs) and my energy level is at 3/20. I leave my iPad at home connected to WiFi yet I never, ever get full energy regeneration after long periods of being idle. So I haven’t played a single round since 7 am (it’s now 6:45 PM) and I still can’t play because I’m only at 3 energies. This is beyond frustrating. The insane amount of video ads would be forgivable if the game was worth the time. If these issues aren’t fixed soon, this will be an uninstall. I’ve read through the reviews and I just cannot believe that no one else is having these types of frustrations, that’s what’s leading me to believe majority of the 5 star reviews are inaccurate. I hope this review helped someone.

  • Oh yeah!! Aug 25, 2017

    By Shorthand sassy
    This is a great game! You can basically bid your game money on auction garages against the game players, and if you outbid the other bidders, you collect the items on the garage. Each of the items you collect is worth some amount of money, and the goal is not to bid too high, or else when you collect things, the value won't reach how much you've spent, and you will have lost money! But if you play your cards, and your money, right- you will be collecting all the way to the bank! And laughing at the players your beat! It keeps you on the edge of your seat on whether or not you will make or lose money! You can collect rare items and you can play some of the toughest people to beat in the business! With nearly no ads and great features, I only wish you could have a garage for yourself to sell your own items. But even without it, this game just keeps getting better, keeps gaining my attention, and I love it!! Perhaps my favorite part of the game, other than the whole game itself, is that it doesn't make you wait to play with annoying ads. It's practically ad free!!! Please try out this game you will not regret it!!

  • Absolutely addicting Dec 20, 2019

    By KatGamer5439
    This game has kept me on my toes for about a year now. Reading through other reviews I have notice quite few people dislike the Al but to me that’s sort of part of the challenge. The Al have unlimited money right?! So then the challenge should be to bid like the Al. Save your money. If you notice later on in the game you have to pay huge amounts of money to enter the next stage/level. So if you save double that amount then you won’t be set back as much and also can “bid like the Al in auctions.” Now when I say bid like the Al I don’t mean recklessly either I just mean wisely as if you know what everything is and how much it costs the more items you collect the more items are added to your collection right. So you have a rough idea of the prices. Don’t rush, take your time and be wise when making choices. Also remember the biggest risks result in great rewards. This game is definitely worth it and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Good game but more can added. You can reduce the rate of the power like they can also be bought by in-game cash we earn and at every level up only 2 gold bar aren't sufficient because there's increase in the requirements to lvl up so the reward should also be a level up. Like add gold bars at some add the powers and so on.

  • Great-But! Sep 2, 2018

    By -Cody
    This is a great time killer game, I love that you can choose to watch ads to help get some more energy to keep playing just a little longer. And I love that the game is not just flooded with ads. In fact there are hardly any ads. Which is a plus. But there are a few things that just drive me crazy. Like how you can only take 3 items back to the shop. “In the car” to sell at your pawn shop. Even though there is more room underneath the 3 boxes it gives you a false hope that maybe you can unlock more space for you to take more items back. But I’ve seen no sign of this being a possibility. I also wish that there was less cool down time for clients or that there were more clients, instead of just the 3 you get every so often. So like maybe 5-6 in the same time span. Because not every client is a buy. In some cases I might only get 1-2 clients each time because they want too much for there item and won’t come down. Is a great game however and have spent real money. Because the game is fun enough to make me want to do so. Which says a lot compared to other games who make it impossible to play without spending real money. GREAT JOB!

    So far so good, just a little slow and waiting too long between levels. Starting to get too many ads and really, the free spin ad after you complete a level having to watch an ad or "X" out just to loose two (2) gold bar should not be part of the game. I have watched over a 100 videos to get gold bars and they are never added. That makes watching the ads totally and completely worthless. Need to get it fixed, or stop running them. Ads are getting a bit much and you want to see one, no ad.

  • Fun game, But... Jul 22, 2019

    By genral 651
    Really enjoyed for a while as a time killer but gets really repetitive and lacks the risk-reward aspect which would make it more fun. It’s basically a slow grind after a while and you never get a big score. The computer bidders basically “know” what’s in the boxes so you never get a big win, it’s just $400 gains at a time once you figure out the logic of how much to pay. Would be nice to occasionally have the big win or big loss, but basically if there is an expensive item in the box, the computer bids it up to where there’s minimal profit so you never get that big profit. It will be one room with 4 large crates and get bid to $2000 then the next with the same crates the bidding goes crazy to $8000. And guess what - the second room has good hidden items. And it’s not like there are clues in the room that would make it more likely in one room than the other. You know there are or are not good hidden items based on the starting bid price and the computer bidding. Would be a lot more fun if there were some rooms where you get that crazy big win or others with big losses or - surprise it turns out that scooter doesn’t work so you lost. Or surprise - that painting is actually rare. Anyway, good time killer but gets repetitive and not as much fun after a few days.

    It's an overall fun game just some things need to be changed up a bit. I dont like the fact that you only get a few game plays before your energy runs out and then have to wait so long for it to refill and the AI computer players bid way more then what the unit is worth so I lose out on profit. Maybe change how much the AI computer bids. Also sometimes when I try to get extra gold bars by watching ads I dont always get the gold bars so watching the ads was worthless.

  • Good at first then gets hard. Aug 5, 2019

    By keithbrad80
    This game is pretty good. At least it was in the beginning. In the start of the game prices were low for the lockers so you could make a good amount of money off each locker bought which helped you progress through the game quickly. An example would be they start the bid for 250 you end up buying for 600 and make 1000 which is pretty good. After the third or fourth section of the game the other NPCs bid up the prices so high its nearly impossible to progress through the game without power ups which cost in game gold which you have to buy. An example of this would be the bid starts at 1900 you end up buying for 4000 because the NPCs won’t stop biding then you open the locker and best case scenario get 2500 so you lost money. You can not buy these this and never progress because you have to take a chance and buy some. Every now and then you get one for 1500 and it makes a tiny profit of maybe 100 bucks. The only way to progress in these later levels is to use power ups. Over all a pretty decent game but this mechanic of the game makes it difficult to enjoy in the later levels.

  • Starts out great but quickly becomes a bore! Dec 13, 2018

    By Scubascotty77
    The game started out great and was quite addicting at first but once you get to the higher levels it is almost impossible to profit from the regular unit auctions. AI players the majority of the time run up bids of each unit well over the value of each locker, even when all items in an individual locker are visible and the value of those items are known. The Game generated opponents have no limit of money they can use like in a real auction and the dollar amount of each bid increases as the total value of the bid amount goes up. There is no way to adjust the amount of each bid per unit and you were forced to bid the amount the game requires which increases as the total bid of each unit also increases. In other words there is nothing realistic about this game. Also the game has not been updated to add a new city in almost a year and has become too boring since 9 out of 10 times you lose money at each auction because the AI players run up the value of each locker.

  • To power up dependent at later levels. Sep 22, 2018

    By dominionator
    I agree with an earlier review. The game starts of really well as you are able to win lockers at reasonable prices and make sometimes ok sometimes great profit. Once you hi New York though that all goes out the window. You must have power ups to know which lockers to get and to get them at a reasonable price to where you can make more that one to two hundred on a room. I saw a room that had a total of under two hundred in profit showing start off at $325 and en up going for $750 and still making a profit of $360 for the computer player. Where I on one locker used my last free power up the calculator to get how much a room is worth and because of the ai crazy bidding only made about $135 on a room that was calculated worth of $1551. At that rate it would take forever to get to the next level. Not to mention you only get 20 energy max and each round cost 7 energy so unless you want to buy more energy you can only do three rooms every hour plus. Or you can watch an advertisement for 5 energy which if you are paying attention isn’t even enough for a round. I just played 2 rounds 3 rooms each where the computer bought all 6 rooms and every single on of the lost money most by over $200. What a waste of time. Now I have to wait over another hour just to try 3 more times to get enough money to get past lvl 8. I bought 1 room out of 9 and made $150 dollars the other 8 as I was saying before the computer bought and lost money on. Ridiculous.

    Was fun in the beginning. The computer players bid the auctions so far out of the actual price range that there is no way you can win any big money. Occasionally you win $50.00-$100.00 . But no way to win the amount of money the AI players are winning. Now with the latest update, you have to watch an ad before and after playing, along with before and after winning your locker. NO MORE FOR ME!!!!!!

  • Game is fun... in the beginning Jan 9, 2019

    By Mamba24boi
    They really push for you to use power ups which can be purchased for real money (surprise surprise) in the later stages of the game as that becomes the only viable way to consistently make money. Once you hit NY the AI will consistently overbid on units and take massive losses (to their AI money.. if you catch my drift) causing you yourself to just completely guess which bid you want to overpay for yourself. Fun game for the first 7 levels and has a lot of potential that is squandered away by this glaring problem along with others like seeing the same items with the exact same value over and over, seeing $600 worth of items outright with two small random boxes only to have the bidding START at $750, pawn shop being almost pointless as no one wants to sell anything for any worthwhile profit while if you try to buy it for that they instantly leave and the ability to really only play three times then having to come back later to restore energy. Fun for the first 7 stages or so so if you are interested in that I’d say go for it, otherwise you’d be better off leaving this alone.

    downloaded the game today, it started out great, I was hooked. Then got offer to fill out a survey the reward was 2 pieces of gold, filled out the survey and no reward. Then ran out of energy and I've been waiting for it to restored for almost 6 hours, underneath the meter says 10 days, if I can only play the game every 10 days, that's a major bummer, would not recommend this game at all. I tried to send and email to support and there's no way to do so from the game or anywhere else.

    Way too many adds. You spend almost 3 minutes watching adds for power ups and spins to be able to play 2 minutes worth of the game. Totally a waste of time and a rip off when your using mobile data and makes no sense to have that many commercials to watch to play the game so little.
