CASINO: Fast Question

Has the Horse Shoe sign out by the street always been there? For some reason, I just noticed it today and thought maybe it was a "sign" of things to come :p

Everything that is there now has always been there...

 

...and if it wasn't, and if they added it recently, would that mean anything? Not really

It was most likely always there. When they do add things to the game, they're usually interior environments that require loading screens. When and if they do add a casino, you will most likely have to go through a loading period much like the one you experience using your apartment/garage.

Yeah, it's always been there, and some game files involving phone calls from Lester talking about the casino were unearthed a while back. I hope we get it one day!

I don't know why everyone is screaming for a casino. Did you guys ever really get stuck into it in SA? I did - if you play without being able to save and reload, you will quickly find yourself broke. Back in CJ's day, you'd save, hit the bookies and bet everything you had on the longshot in a horse race. He wins, you are now a multi-millionaire; he loses, you reload and try again till you succeed.

 

In Online, we won't be able to save & reload. The gambling will be for real. All casinos have at least one thing in common, and that is they rig the odds so that while impossible to predict the outcome in the short term, on a long enough timeline the house always wins.

 

If R* does bring in a Casino, then everybody best get thru their heads quick smart what it is - the mother of all money sinks. It will exist solely to remove your excess millions, keep you poor, keep you grinding.

 

Oh, sure, there will be numerous rags-to-riches tales - just like there are in Vegas every week. And we'll hear about them, just like we do in Vegas, because it propagates the dream and gets us on the tables. It's the casinos themselves that spread those stories, or have huge flashing lights and bells and staff attendance when someone jackpots a slot machine -they want you to see, to think "Oh, that could've been me!" - they want you to play next. But for every jackpot, there were 10 thousand spins that paid out dick - at a buck a pop, minimum.

 

IRL, the single purpose of a casino is to take your money - all of it, if they can get you to give it up. It's what they do; it's all they do and they absolutely will not stop until you are penniless and of no further use to them.

 

TL;DR - careful what you wish for. The house always wins in the end.

Because in RDR you could play poker with your friends all night and just chat. I think it will be the same way if it comes. Gambling is fun when not real money :p

While I think the casino would be a cool addition, I really wouldn't mind if it never opened. Besides, the only casino game I actually know how to play is Blackjack.

There are professional gamblers who know what they are doing...they do exist trust me. But ya, casinos are a good way to flush your money down the toilet.

 

Having said that i really want the casino to open.

 

Also...for a crazy rags-to-riches-to-rags story, look up archie karas...hehe

And the second the casino gets wind of them, they're out. Again, I know there are exceptions to the rule, but I promise you, a Casino would end GTA as we know it. Blow 10 million on cars and mods and you have 10 million bucks worth of cars and mods. Do that in a casino and you're just out 10 mil.

Is this The Guy?

I'm hitting the craps if it ever does open.

 

Last time I went to Vegas I went with 2K, within 2 days I got up to 5K. I came home with nothing

 

Despite that story I want to gamble.
