    I know this has been asked before but I just think it would be so cool to have a casino in UO where we can play real card games and other things against other players and the casino for gold and prizes. This would be a nice change from hunting, crafting, bank sitting and what have you it would also be a nice gold sink because casinos always make more then it loses and this would also be a great way to socialize and make more UO friends.

    Ooo, that would be a fun gold sink!

    How about prizes be items and resources that already exist. Such as a pile of ingots/wood/cloth of any kind. And so on...

    This would actually be fun if players could play against each other. Playing against the house though where you could pull in an endless stream of gold wouldn't be such a hot idea though.

    Bring Back Budo and open up the house of games in Buccaneer's Den just like the good ole' days.:thumbsup:

    I would like one too or even player run casinos where our *lucky dealer* personal attendants actually DEAL some cards for everyone in the house not just for the owner of the attendant. ;) That way no player run casino host can stack the deck if our personal attendants were really dealin ' :) for the masses. Twould give the RNG generator gurus like Draconi something new to RNG for us all. haha

    EA had to remove Casino items from The Sims Online, and Linden Labs had to remove them from Second Life do to the federal regulations on online gambling... so I dunno how they'd manage it.

    Keeping in the spirit of UO's "being able to do anything" there should also be a way to cheat at cards and such, with a chance to get caught of course if you are not skilled. But the skilled ones should be able to swindle the poor unknowing saps.

    I know a certain PRS that offers Texas holdem and slot machines that give regs and gold, so I know it can be done in UO.

    "Casinos" were in some older Ultimas. I specifically remember killing people in them & stealing.

    Probably the most immersive game I had played.
    There was no dropoff from the 1st to the 2nd one.
    Awesome gaming!
    I didnt think anything after that in the series was worth Poo
