Welcome to The Great Heist

The Great Heist is an online role-playing game and community where the players strive for infamy and fortune in a world of crime and high-stakes heists.

You start the game as a simple thief with empty pockets. Join a crew of smooth criminals or work alone, the choice is yours. Play your cards right and you'll soon be traveling the world leaving a trail of empty bank vaults behind you. The long arm of the law will constantly try to foil your ingenious schemes so try to stick to the shadows or you'll end up in the slammer!

The game is played in real time and the game keeps on going even when you're not logged in. Success in the game is determined by careful strategy and good timing, not by constant online presence. It's perfectly possible to be successful in the game by logging in a couple of times a week to check up on things.

The Great Heist is free of charge and no downloads are necessary to play it. If you can read this you're good to go.

When this offer expires, we will remove the special item packages which are currently for sale as well. The Wheels of Kobe will also roll away into the sunset for those of you who haven't spun them for free yet. Important note: you have to use any prepaid codes before the end date on Friday in order to receive your extra 20%.

Server time6/9/2020

Today we handed all accomplished players who've logged in during the last month the right to spin the Wheels of Kobe once! Spinning the Wheels of Kobe will grant you three rare items which aren't distributed in the game on a regular basis. Although a fair amount of these exclusive items come with some sort of special effect, they are mostly aimed at embellishing your role playing experience in the game.

Once you have received the items you are free to use or trade them any way you like. However, keep in mind that for a limited two week period players will also be able to spend credits to purchase special item packages which also contain some of these exclusive items. You might want to take this into consideration before spending your in game money on one of these new items.

You can find the wondrous wheels of fortune at any city temple. May the blessings of saint Kobe fall upon you!
