Is there a work around for customers in my situation?
Looks like there's a couple of people in this situation and the plan was that the extra content would be exclusive to current players (ie those that had bought the game previously) so there wouldn't actually be a pay to unlock option, which is why I posted here a while back.
As your purchase of the game is permanent on the App Store, it should still allow you to redownload for free whenever it's actually available. So what I might try and organise is switching the old version of SlotZ Racer back on for a short time slot to give current players another chance to redownload it, while hopefully avoiding anyone accidentally buying it at full price before it goes free.
