The Casino is an area found on D:30 of the Caverns of Chaos, generally one or two floors below the Eternal Guardian. It is home to the game's single largest shop(pe), as well as slot machines that provide unlimited money for purchasing items from the shoppe.

Достопримечательности[править | править исходный текст]

The left-hand side of the Casino is dominated by rows of slot machines, as well as assorted non-hostile monsters including Casino guards. Each slot machine will have the PC insert a small amount of cash, and will create a pile of coins at the PC's feet. Testing has revealed that the Casino slot machines are curiously rigged in such a way that the player always wins more money than he invests. In fact, unless the PC has inordinately small amounts of funds, they will always receive a significant payout (up to 24 times their gold on the 24 gold machines). Note that excessive winning at the slots will result in the PC becoming very stunned as well as Hungry! A ring of stun resistance is recommended before playing the slots. Fortunately, the PC cannot starve to death while playing, so it is not necessary to eat before using the slot machines.

Note that as of 1.2.0, playing the slots will corrupt the PC. The exact mechanism of how much corruption per gambling run is not known, but a crude estimate is that the PC will receive 1-2 corruptions per million gold acquired on a 24 gold slot machine.

The right hand side is the Casino gift shoppe, which is filled with approximately 470 items (plus available restocks) of appropriate danger level for the area, and exactly one master mimic. This means that usually at least a few of these items are very high quality, and most PCs are likely to find an artifact or two in the Casino as well. The prices in the Gift shop are outrageous, but given that there is a source of unlimited gold just outside the shop, this is hardly a problem so long as the PC's carrying capacity is high enough to carry all the gold they need to buy their items (a girdle of greed helps). Teleportation operates in a strange (and frustrating) way in the gift shop; upon teleportation, the PC will be immediately teleported next to the Casino shopkeeper. This is particularly annoying for PCs with teleportitis, since it means marching back across the gift shop each time a random teleport occurs. If the PC attempts to rob the Casino, this restriction will be removed. Non-hostile breeders in the Casino such as chaos rats are probably best aggravated and killed to avoid them infesting the entire level.

PCs who gamble without spending money at the shop may find their way downstairs blocked by the Big Casino Guard. He can be moved via teleportation, spending more than you've earned on the slot machines at the shoppe, or causing him to attack. It may also be possible to confuse him and make him stumble off the stairs.

The slot machines have a betting range of 1-24GP per bet, the amount bet depends on the machine in question. Obviously, the player will want to use the 24 gold machines, as these provide the highest possible gold/hour ratio. They are marked on the map below with an x.

Robbing the Casino can be done by any of the same methods as robbing stores, with the same associated risks, with the exception of the aforementioned teleportation restriction. In practice, there is no reason to rob the Casino unless the player is opposed in principle to using the slot machines, since a slot machine can produce as much money as required. The Casino shopkeeper himself is worth killing if the PC can manage it, however, since he counts for several hundred thousand experience points. He is a dangerous foe, however, who frequently panics when injured.
