Change Username (15 Credits)
You can change your name at any time using credits. This won’t hide your identity because although you have a new name there are various ways to see you’re the same person, such as your respect count or ranking position. To hide your identity you must commit suicide and create a new gangster. You can use a name you’ve already used this round, the existing gangster will be automatically renamed.
You can also use credits on the following screens:
- Airport: Reset your timer (8 credits)
- Scratch & Win: Scratch all cards together (2 credits)
You can buy your own credits on the Buy Credits tab. By purchasing credits you’re helping to fund the management, development and marketing of the game.
If you would prefer not to buy credits using real currency, you can buy credits from other players in the Auction House.
