History of Montecarlo Casino
Immerse yourself in a "casino simulator" consisting of five games on which you can bet your virtual money. The player starts with $10,000 and the aim is to win as much money as possible in one of the five games of chance. These games can be played in any order and, if the player has had enough of, for example, poker, he can choose to stop and pay any other game. All games are explained on the inside of the cassette.
1 Million Dollar Fruit Machine - The easiest way to gamble, just press a key to spin the reels. Each spin costs $1,000.
Blackjack - Also known as 'Pontoon' and 'Vignt-et-un'. To win, the face value of the players' cards must exceed that of the dealer's, but must be less than 21.
Roulette - Use the action keys to determine how much you bet, the odds of your bet, and then place your chips on the table. Up to 10 bets can be placed at a time.
Poker - The game is five-card stud poker and the player plays against the dealer. The aim is to beat the dealer, either with a better hand or by bluffing him to fold. Once the cards have been dealt, either the player or the dealer can stay, bet or fold. If both the player and the dealer remain in the game, the cards can be exchanged and a second round takes place, after which the cards are shown and the hand is won or lost.
Craps - This is a dice game where you bet on the expected value of the next roll. The player chooses the bet to make and then the type of bet to make, 'big six', 'big eight', 'pass line bet', etc.
How to play Montecarlo Casino
The ball is thrown and the roulette wheel spins until the croupier's announcement. Plates come and go and everyone does their maths. I lose and the amount of what I have left is shown. After a few more or less happy hits, I make my way to the poker table. The distribution of cards is nicely animated and the game is played according to the rules: betting, exchanging cards, bluffing ... it's all there.
