You can actually win a DE guise from it.

There was also an extremely rare set of gloves with like 50 PR and a clicky I think?

Do those exist on this server?

i think in LoY sony put a game controlled lotto in the Bazzar zone i think. Its been so long but I do remember a system like that they put in to basically eat plat.
Im sure others will help me recall things correctly
Yes that was it - I never played because I was never a plat whore but I always liked the idea. By LoY the plat situation was getting out of hand, bazaar items were all costing at least 10kpp and..yeah, good idea in theory [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Someone should find out what the odds of getting a fungi tunic from that ingame casino in shadow haven was. And have people pay you 100p, then /rand 40000 or whatever the odds were, and if they get whatever 1 number you designate out of it, they win a fungi (provided you have one to gamble with)

I ran a casino for awhile called Mandalaybay, with the Casino guild tag. It can be very profitable, but anyone who remembers mine knows that I gave almost everything away to random people through /roll contests or whatever.

I did roulette as my main starting game, with actual casino odds. /random 0 37, 0 and 37 being the house numbers 0 and 00. You could play it just like regular roulette, combining bets etc. Betting a number and hitting it paid out 35x, and I paid that out many times while I was running it. Most people just played even/odd which was far and away the best odds casino game on the server at the time.

The casinos that do the 550+ games, with 990+ only paying out like 3 or 4x the bet are just obnoxious. Having to hit a 1/100 to get paid out 4x? Ridiculous.

Over time, I had a LOT of action and make a few hundred k in plat. The keys are that you need to start with a decent bankroll and be ready to absorb some losses.

But in the end, the house always win.

EDIT: Oh, and I also ran this: http://www.project1999.org/forums/sh...ight=powerball

Ended up being pretty successful and fun.
