We’ve started working on Update 0.14.2.0, which will include Arcade - Phase 2, the new Fresh store overhaul, a Plaza Update, and many other changes and bug fixes. You can read about everything planned for this update here.

Accessibility Suggestions

We’ve created a forum post asking the community for suggestions on how we can improve gameplay for players with certain conditions such as colorblindness, dyslexia, or anything else that might affect a players ability to use the standard presentation and controls of the game.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, and possible solutions on how to solve a particular issue, please check out the forum post here.

Please tell me we’ll get that Fishing Boat as Condo furniture (and the RV from Pine Valley, but I think that’s already planned).

Honestly the part I’m looking forward to most about Casino Phase 2 is not knowing how to play the games. My friends and I had a lot of fun trying to learn Poker through brute force.

my biggest issue with the casino was always that there’s not enough games (and there’s only 1 multiplayer game) so its really nice that its finally gonna get some more stuff

edit: also sunrise isles track 2 looks really nice

American roulette here should have its straight bet is 36 or even 37 to 1, hitting 0 or double 0s should return all bets outside straight by half.

it would be even better to have a unique variant of roulette… oof

Lol. I can teach you if you’d like. I know how to play Blackjack, 5 Card Draw, and Roulette. All very easy

where can i find more about this casino phase 2?

Here’s the Trello Card
It focuses on multiplayer activities. It’s currently slated for later down the line, though (Arcade Phase 2 is set for the next major update).
