Credits are the most commonly used currency in the Asphalt Games.
The only currency until fall 2014, Credits are a fundamental element of Asphalt 8, being the only way to purchase in-game objects without having to spend real money. Credits can be won by finishing races, winning Time-Limited Events, or purchasing credit packs. There are six different credit packs, ranging from $1.99 to $99.99. Credits earned at the end of races can also be increased by the Double Credits item, and with a Daily Bonus. The best way to earn money is to complete mastery with as many cars as possible, upgrading that car, and others, as you go (due to the reward for finishing the race in first being anywhere from +1,500 to around 25,000 credits per reward without the race winnings).
