This simulation of Golden Nugget's casino is a brilliant game for those who do enjoy gambling but don't really enjoy spending the money. This game has it all from Slots to Roulette, to Money Wheel, to Blackjack to Craps and finally, Video Poker. It does feel like a great sim for those of die hard casino fans or those young enough that can't really go to Vegas. It's a fun "if I am bored enough" type of game. I would rather buy this then rent it. But if you are not into casino sim games, this game you can rightfully pass on. Graphics and sound were amazing. But the limitations of play were somewhat disappointing. So far this is only one of 2 casino type games for the DS so it's hard to compare. But I will go out on a limb and say. It's worth taking a look at it.
The top screen is used to show the pay table for slot games and the table for the card games or. The bottom is used to show the reels of the slot machine, you hand or you bets thus enabling you to touch the screen to place your bet. Neat but not really needed. You start with $2000 (not $5000 as was posted in the game description). Casino games are just going to fall short because half of the fun in gambling is the possibility of winning real money. Playing just for the thrill of wining is not what gambling is about. It's the hope of wining big bucks that keeps us coming back.
