A simple gambling simulation program is easy to write. Even a simple program is fun to play with, but a more sophisticated program is more fun. The Internet now offers the possibility of gambling on-line, with "real money". The software for this system is quite sophisticated. The prototype Raging Roulette contains lots of ideas which are useful for other gambling simulations. Slot machines, dice, card games, and any other gambling game can be simulated in a similar fashion.
Our class project will concentrate on multi-player games rather than casino games. There is no "house". This is more like how real people play games with friends - for example, card games like poker. Our project is to build several multi-player gambling games. The players will exchange V-money virtual money , kept in a virtual bank managed by the teacher.
Rather than implementing a standard game like roulette or poker, students will design their own gambling games. Here is an example:. Each player places a bet and chooses a number between 2 and The numbers and bets remain secret from the other players. The minimum bet permitted is 50 dm. The total of all the bets forms a "pot". Two dice are then rolled.
If more than one player bet on that number, the player who bet the most money wins the entire pot - the others lose. If there is a tie, they split the pot. If nobody bet on that number, the money remains in the pot for the next game.
Each student creates a game specifies the rules and writes programs to implement the on-line version. This includes a server program which generates the random results and makes payments to winners, as well as the client program which runs on the user's computer and takes bets and displays results.
