    Grand Opening!
    I was invited to the grand opening of the Blackrock Casino.
    I could not let something like this go pass by without to have a look myself to a opening of establishment that not happens often.
    There would be runes around the bank to go to the casino but i decided to go to it trough the teleporters hub in New Magincia.

    The teleporter took me right in to the Casino.
    There i was welcomed by the owners and the employees of the establishment.

    On this first night we all had a free chance on the many slot machines.
    The slot machines are available for everyone 24 hours a day.

    I saw several players at a table where they would play a little with the dices.
    But before i could gamble, i changed some gold into smaller checks for the games.

    There where several games to try but i decided ,like many other gamblers,to play some Blackjack.

    I did not do too bad on the first attempts but keeping gambling got high risks.
    Some of us lost and some of us won some gold but i guess that's how it all works in a casino.
    I tried my luck on a new table, maybe i would win a little more there.
    It was clear that people where having a really good time.

    I noticed a special High Roller Club for the really lucky gamblers that play very often.

    Later on the evening there would be a raffle.
    You could buy some tickets and get some nice prices.

    I was getting tired but i could not resist to have a look at the roof.
    Its a very nice big chessboard.

    This first opening evening looks like a big success.
    And i was told some big prices where won on the slot machines too.
    The following amounts was won on the slot machines: 2,5m ,2*500k + 100k.​
    I heard that the special evenings could be hold in the casino every two weeks, maybe more often depending on the success.
    I know i will be visit this place again and i can only recommend everyone to try it too!

    What a clever run event! How often will the Casino be open for business?
