UPDATE: Fixed a few bugs, new highscore board and now you can't cheat the stocks ;)

Make your way through 4 exciting floors of slot machines, dice games, cock fights and more! Become the richest Newgrounds user in it's very own Riskful Thinking casino based on luck.

Control the player with WASD or the Arrow keys. Space is to enter and exit games and elevators. The rest of the instructions is within the game.

Good luck and watch your money wisely! I hear stocks are a wise investment now a days.

Needs work

Betting/Casinos are fun experience where people lose money, no doubt about that. The problem you have in this game is that the odds on some of your games are atrocious, past the flip a coin odds you'd be crazy to play some of these games.
You also took an interesting leap in having a lose less option. This is something to be avoided when you are handling gambling (and a video game) because the user feels worse off still because they have lost money. No game in a casino will give you a pay out less than 1:1 of your bet, you either lose your money or win more. This is because players losing any money will feel bad losing any amount of money, even if they get half their bet back. I would remove all the 500 dollar and lesser pay outs and increase them. Also in a real casino very few games are giving you 1:1 pay. Remember you are stacking the odds in your favor (or the virtual house) so you need to pay the player a lot more on most of these games.

You can easily improve on these ideas by changing the payouts to more closely match the odds of a real casino (or the odds you have in your games) and keep in mind that losing any money is lost money, therefore you should not have a lose less option.

Rated 1 / 5 stars

why would this be on the homepage

the gameplay is awful it has no fun to it its very boring makes me want to go back to sleep and i just got up after 12 hours i'll just quit at the first floor because i don't think rock paper scissors is a casino game or heads n tails this looks like a casino built for kids you have the right idea but didn't do it the right way

This is kinda cool but i figured out one bug in flip a coin game.
If you picked wrong one just hit "x" button and you will be saved. Then go to rock paper scissors game (if you picked wrong one) and spend all your money and hit paper. you will automatically win! please fix this shit if you didn't understand my bad english then pm me or something :D
