Gold is the premium currency in SmallWorlds. The fastest and easiest way to get Gold is to buy it, but there are other ways that you can get Gold.
Beware people offering free Gold, VIP or other goodies in exchange for your password. It’s a scam!
Also, be aware that there are many scams of players offering to buy tokens in exchange for gold.
There are lots of legit ways to earn Gold and even get free items in SmallWorlds!
Method #1: Complete Offers
Take a survey, download trial software or buy something from our shopping list on a partnered e-commerce site: these are all ways to earn SmallWorlds Gold! Click on the Get Gold icon on your Toolbar at the bottom of your SmallWorlds window while inworld, then click ‘Do Offers’ to check out the latest offers.
Method #2: Watch Videos
Watching videos is an easy way to earn Gold! Click on the Get Gold icon on your Toolbar at the bottom of your SmallWorlds window while inworld, then click ‘Watch Videos’. If there are no videos available to watch for your region when you check, try again later.
Method #3: Spin to Win
While there’s no guarantee, it’s always worth it to give the wheel a spin every six hours and see what you win. You have nothing to lose and if you’re lucky you could win one of the big Gold prizes!
The Spin-to-Win Deluxe will cost you Gold to buy spins, but you can win big! Every spin wins a prize, and there is Gold, furniture, Rare items, wearables, and even luxury spaces to be won.
Method #4: Item Sales and Trading
Save your Monthly Collectable and other rare items (such as rewards from special SmallWorlds official missions) and keep an eye on the player-run stores to see what their value is. The longer you wait, the more the items will become worth and you can sell them, often for Gold.
Always use the Trading Widget to trade items, and check the details of each trade carefully before you accept it. Once you click Accept the trade is final. Go to The Trading Post to find Trading Widgets and people to trade with. You’ll find The Trading Post in your Featured Places Panel.
As you get more advanced be sure to check out the Marketplace forum.
Method #5: Arcade, Pool & Other Mini Games
Compete in daily tournaments or issue challenges to other players to wager tokens or gold.
