Gambling casino ?

Question

Hi devs and people of our beautiful community. 

Was wondering what you guys think about implemented more fun game in both casino which would allow us to gamble our money, or winning prizes. 

These are nice places and sadly kinda useless nowadays. 

Thought about black jack, roulette etc 

I realize its far away from beeing the most usefull thing to do but sounded cool and fun in my mind. 

 

Let me know what you guys think, ideas etc. 

 

Cheers

I already have enough trouble keeping money in my pocket. I don't need a Blackjack habit to feed, too >.>
 

Spoiler

Seriously though, I like the idea. Though there might be some problems with adding gambling games to a normally kid-friendly game.

I see one problem :

 

An automated gambling game is :

 

Option one : Not worth, just a scam game. You can get a jackpot, but taking a big number of tentatives, would be shieeet.

 

Option two : Exploitable, free money using a precise method.

____

Option one sucks.

Option two is cool in a singleplayer game. But sucks in MMO.

Distracts you from actually playing pokemon.

Are you joking? If people wanted to just gamble online, there's plenty of other ways to do it. If a person is on PokeMMO, they obviously aren't there just for the gambling. Internet poker is a thing.

I feel like your only proving my point.

btw, this is still a bad idea to implement more casino things in an MMO.

What is the point, then? The players of MMO are here to play pokemon, not poker.

 

In the real world, gambling is a money sink, and gambling results in an average net loss in money. In light of this, MMO players would refuse to play casino games. In a game already dominated by money-grinding, no one in their right mind would spend their hard-earned cash on a game of chance, when the expected outcome is a loss of money. The alternative would be to make gambling profitable: either through money or some sort of other reward. But then, I would have to agree with a comment that was made earlier; if making money is guaranteed, then this is only exploitable.

 

As a final case-in-point, I encourage you to check out the current game corners and report back on the number of players you see using them. If the demand for gambling isn't there, then nothing can or should be done. Maybe, 3 years ago, when everyone and their grandma hung out at the slots to go for those coveted HP TMs, we would've appreciated some variety to the gambling options. But, today, it appears that this isn't the case.

I know what is gambling given that i work as a casino dealer irl thanks mate. Plus, not saying to implement poker but just a game where you can gamble or having fun.People love gambling, thats a fact, and maybe not you but some rich players here do. we do have some lottery on trade corner, we have a thread for psl bet where millions are spent every week. And as you said , no one use these casino anymore coz playing machines for tms is boring and useless now.

My point was here, do something with theses places where people who want to try their luck and put their balls on table can. Otherwise you can still grind money  by farming berry. But im done playing garden-mmo.

There always been casino things in Pokemon Game.

The fact this one is a MMO make it bad idea, but dont use absurd arguments.

This is like "Dont implement Johto, look how much ppl is in johto right now, The Joht demand is not here."

 

Ofc, nobody is in the game corners, cuz the only thing avaliable in game corners is just a "clic and lose your coins" thing.

People gamble for 1 of 3 reasons:

 

1) Win Money. But gambling is not an efficient way to make money. And I don't think it is ethical to promote gambling addictions in a (principally) children's game.

 

2) Win prizes. But what prizes would you win? Vanity items might work. Nothing else does / makes economic sense. Most things are easily obtained from GTL.

 

3) Have fun. But if you want to gamble download a gambling game.

 

I just don't think that the MMO would be any more fulfilling with more sophisticated ways to waste in-game money.

 

The only suggestion I can offer in favor of this is a skill-crane type game where you can win vanity items that you would otherwise have to pay real $ to obtain.

I'm also against this idea. In an MMO styled game, gambling certainly doesn't fit in here. Sure it's sometimes fun to go to the coin casino and just let it rip to see if you can get anything, but adding more gambling doesn't make much sense. It acts just like it does in real life, use your money and hope that you get more than what you paid for. But as JS said above, there's no real reason to waste time in the casino. You get more money farming elsewhere, prizes are obtainable through GTL, and sometimes even the Poke Marts, and if you really want to gamble, then play a dedicated gambling game.

Personally, I wouldn't go for a "skill" game, but a game that relies much more on luck (say, 99%). After all, this is a F2P game that generally relies on it's donators. If it was skill-based, people could farm off the game, sell it over the GTL and give no reason for some donator or real $ items to exist, ruining the perk of paying for it.

Agree 100%. By skill-crane I only meant that the items you win are cosmetic, they are usually luck-based irl too
