This game is really fun with addictive play and lots of variety. But the companys obvious, blatant attempts to get people to spend not just a little money but LOTS of money is really irritating. Once you get past the first 20 levels or so in the first restaurant, it becomes impossible to proceed without upgrading equipment and the restaurant interior, 98% of which cant be upgraded without lots of gems. Gems that, in the quantity needed, can only be found by buying lots of gem packs and frequently. No other way to get past higher levels or open up other restaurants. As other reviews have stated, the casino is a ripoff. You can spend 10,000 coins in there and win nothing at all. The developers really need to improve the win ratio or risk losing players.
Sadly, I will have to stop playing. I could have maybe spent some money to get past a few difficult levels but the way the game is designed, even if I got past those levels, Id still need a ton of gems to open up new restaurants end get past future levels. Too bad, I really liked the game a lot.
