The player takes the role of a male/female character with a custom name and starts off with $500 in the casino "Club Sega". The player is able to choose how much to bet in the card games and slot machine and in the case of pinball choose the type of slope for difficulty level. If the player wins a game, a password is outputted to continue progress. If the player runs out of money, the game is over. The player wins if they are able earn $1,000,000.[2]

Reception[edit]

Scores for the game were mediocre, with Allgame calling it a "Nice collection of games for those who like cards and gambling"[5] and The Games Machine regarding it as well worth the money, while lacking grab and attention.[4]
