The Casino (

Hello, TUbular players. Let’s cut right to the chase with this update. This one has the Casino.

The Casino Is Now Open!

The following games are now available to Tower Unite:

  • Casino
  • Texas Hold’em
  • 3 different slot machines
    • Triple Diamonds: A basic 3 reel slot machine
    • Grand Quest: A 3 reel slot machine with some RPG elements
    • Wheel of Money: A 3 reel slot machine with a bonus money wheel
  • Video Poker
  • Video Blackjack
  • Spin to Win
  • Double or Nothing
  • Trivia
  • Typing Derby

Developer Note: Most functionality of the Casino Update will initially be limited to Official Servers. Typing Derby and Trivia will still show up on community servers, but they will not payout. Support for other servers will come later.

We are now hosting more Official servers located in Seattle, Dallas, Chicago, New York, and two in Frankfurt. We are also currently setting up a server in Sydney.

Please be aware that there may be initial issues on launch and we will be closely watching all Casino related transactions.

Thanks for bearing with us while we worked on getting this update out. We didn’t want to push out an unfinished update, and we’ve been working around the clock to push the update out a little bit earlier than what everyone expected.

We’ll be continuing to work on new Casino games in the future, this update is only the beginning of what we have in store.

Make sure to report any bugs you find with the Casino (or any of the other new features we’ve added) on the forums and we’ll try to fix them as soon as possible!

If your transactions fail during this week, we’ll be looking into it and we are logging all of it.

You can follow our current developments on our Trello:

Thank you soooooo much!

It’s great to finally be able to sink all my money back into casino. Thank youvery much for the great update and keep up the great work guys :smiley: :thumbsup:

Did anyone notice that they updated the song of the secret party yacht? It’s no longer the unique one, I recognized it, and it must be something from ball race, but I am not sure.

Will the songs from trivia be released on the soundtrack?


I made 30k this morning… Grand Quest got me a curved TV :3

Holy shit casino is new #1 way of making money
started out at 648k units, now I am at 1.009 million.

How? I have the worst luck.
