Credits are the most commonly used currency in the Asphalt series, replacing the DollarsDollars full a7 Dollars used in Asphalt 7: Heat and being replaced once again by CashCash small as Cash (measured in Dollars) in Asphalt Street Storm Racing.

The only currency in the game until the inclusion of TokensA8 tokens full Tokens in the Winter Update, Credits are the primary way to purchase in-game objects without having to spend real money since Tokens are much harder to obtain. Credits can be won by finishing races, winning Time-Limited Events, completing vehicle collections or purchasing credit packs. Credits earned at the end of races can also be increased by the A8 icon double credits Double Credits booster, completing Bonus Star Requirements and the Daily Bonus multiplier.

Credit Packs

Credit Packs

Credit Packs are an in-app purchase that provides the player a set amount of credits in exchange for real money.

  • The larger the pack, the better the price per Credit.
  • The size of the packs and also the price per Credit are dependent on a player's Career StarsStars small a8 Stars.
    • More Stars → more Credits per pack
    • More Stars → better price per Credit

Especially for less advanced players, the prices for Credit Packs are completely out of proportion. For the same price, advanced players get more than double the amount of Credits than beginners. Credits are much easier to earn in-game than Tokens (see Farming), so buying Credits with real money should only be considered as a last resort.

With the Rio de Janeiro Update, each credit pack will also award the player with VIP points for the VIP system.

A Credits Pass subscription was available in June 2019 and gave a total of 6000000A8 credits small 6,000,000, double the amount of a Master Credit Pack for the price of a Pro Credit Pack. The player has to log-in to the game every day for a consecutive 15 times with each log-in awarding 400000A8 credits small 400,000.

The following table lists pack sizes and prices for some example Star levels taken from different accounts. Reaching 1700Stars small a8 1,700 seems to be the last level; even players with 2495Stars small a8 2,495 did not have better ratios. As Gameloft is based in France, prices are shown in Euro. Prices in US$ are the same despite different exchange rates, so players from the USA have an advantage as long the exchange rate for $ 1 is below € 1.

Anniversary Coins

Available only during the 5th Anniversary and Halloween Festival event, Festival Coins can only be purchased as part of any Credits or Tokens pack.

  1. Rookie Credit Pack: 150 Coins
  2. Driver Credit Pack: 350 Coins
  3. Pilot Credit Pack: 675 Coins
  4. Pro Credit Pack: 1,200 Coins
  5. Champion Credit Pack: 2,625 Coins
  6. Master Credit Pack: 3,750 Coins

Transferability with Tokens

There is no official conversion rate between credits and tokens in Asphalt 8: Airborne. A token is worth 138A8 credits small 138 on average and at the most, 341A8 credits small 341. This is only an estimate as the number of in-game tokens received for an equivalent value of credits depends largely on what you purchased.

In general, the lower the credit/token ratio of the car price is, the more economical it would be to purchase the car with credits instead of tokens. Due to the scarcity and high value of tokens to most players, it is usually a better choice to purchase the item with credits and save the tokens for other uses.

Obtaining Credits

While every race in the game (except for Quick Solo Race and failed Flawless races) has a Credits payout, the fastest method of earning credits is with Season 9: Beyond and McLaren Legends, preferably on short tracks such as San Diego Harbor, Alps, Dubai, Rio de Janeiro, Westminster Bridge/The London Eye, Munich Subway, and some layouts of The Great Wall. Listed below are the 29 current most proficient cars at Credits-grinding at Season 9 and McLaren Legends.

While racing with boosters (Nitro Starter & Tuning Kit) will reduce the race duration, it is more detrimental than going un-boosted as the additional cost for 1 hour of usage will outweigh the increased profit for an overall loss in credit accumulation (assuming that the boosters were not purchased through Exclusive Deals, earned via Time Limited Events, completing Collections or Car Mastery).[1]

Prior to March 23, 2018, the Lamborghini Veneno could be used as the first stepping stone in credits grinding as it only cost 861774A8 credits small 861,774 to buy and MAX PRO and does not require Engine Cards in its Pro Kits.

While the 2015 GTA Spano has comparable profitability to the cars mentioned above, it is rendered impractical with its paywall restriction and Elite Car status with tune-ups for it taking 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete.
