Introducing the Street Crime Bounty program

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

Today we are launching the Street Crime Bounty program.

Over the past few months, we have been hard at work on implementing significant changes to the architecture of the game to allow for better performance, maintenance and most importantly future developments. Since 2009 the game has gone through many iterations with new features, players and competitions. More recently the game hasn’t seen much change but that is something we hope to change!

As part of the new infrastructure changes, many bugs have now been fixed, but alongside this, we are introducing our own Bounty program. The Street Crime Bounty program invites players to partner with the team behind the StreetCrime game to help ensure fair and reliable gameplay can be enjoyed by everyone.

To take part, every player will have the ability to report a suspected bug to the Street Crime team via our Helpdesk ticketing system and selecting the ticket type as ‘Bug’. Eligible submissions with a clear, concise explanation of the bug will not only help to improve the overall experience for all players but based on the severity of the bug will be eligible for awards up to £100.00 (or equivalent in either USD or EUR). Players can also request to receive their rewards in in-game credits or membership.

Bug bounty programs are common among technology companies, where they are used to incentivise the identification and disclosure of security vulnerabilities. Bug bounty programs have been implemented by a large number of organizations, including the Department of Defense, United Airlines, Twitter, Google, Apple, Microsoft and many others.

The Street Crime team strongly believe that it is only through close engagement with our players that we can make the game experience better and more secure.
