Chapter 15. Casino and Card Games

Casino and Card Games

Gambling games have always been a popular genre of computer games. The Web is full of casino and card games in Flash, Shockwave, and Java. Most are just for fun, but some allow you to bet real money.

In this chapter, you’ll look at four just-for-fun casino games. The first is a pure game of chance: a slot machine. Next, you’ll see how to make a video poker game.
