Gangster Nation Guide

The preferences screen allows you to setup notifications for the game as well as manage various other settings such as player blocks.


Push notifications

You can toggle the individual notification types you want to receive on your current device from this area. These notifications will only be received when the game is not focused / open.

Safari/iOS: This area will not show while using Safari (on iOS or Mac OS) because Safari does not support web based push notifications.

Android app: This area will not show on the Android app. To manage your Android app notifications please open the Settings app on your device and then look for the Notifications settings.

Sound effects

You can also choose whether to have any sound effects the game uses muted or not. An example of where sound effects are used is when you win a Scratch & Win card or on Crack the Safe.

Change email address & password

Finally, the settings tab also allows you to change your account email and password if you signed up directly on the game. If you signed up through Facebook or Google then these options are not available.


You can use hideout mode to protect your gangster while on vacation or as a game tactic. While in hideout mode your gangster is protected from being killed but you’ll be unable to access the game. There is no way to leave hideout mode once this is activated, the game administrators will not be able to remove you from hideout. After entering the hideout, you’ll be presented with a screen displaying the amount of time remaining.

The following restrictions apply to using hideout mode:


The blocks tab lets you view any existing blocks you have against other players. You can unblock any of the players you have blocked from this page.
