Description

In Casino Empire, you play as the manager of many different casinos. You start at a run-down, poor casino, eventually working your way through Vegas to the top of the line, multi-billion dollar casinos.

Games you can build include blackjack, poker, craps, roulette, baccarrat, pai gow poker, slot machines and video poker.

To maximize your casino's profits, you have access to a variety of different buildings, including a cashier's booth, restroom, bar, lounge, amusement ride, bingo, Keno, and gift shop.

To make your patrons happy, you must decorate your casino, using items such as statues, fountains, plants, water, and television stands. You can also build hotels, and offer in-room Keno, video games, and Internet access.

Patrons come in four different forms; Tourists, who make 60% of your clientel, and don't play the high priced games; Gamblers, who are just above tourists, have more money, and like the high priced games; High Rollers, who have the most money, prefer the most expensive games, and like the private rooms, such as the Poker Lounge; and VIP High Rollers, who are celebrities, and who make your casino more appealing.
