Gambling

Depending on your budget, and the amount of risk you will take, there are a number of different options available when gambling. An important aspect of gambling is that it also gains you exp. WARNING: The gambling system and odds have been changed to a more realistic system. You are now far more likely to lose money when gambling! Every day you get 75 tokens to gamble with. eg. 1 go at the roulette or at the slots costs 1 token. When you have 0 tokens, you can no longer gamble. More tokens can be gained by though the Casino job special, or by voting at TOPRPG daily. Be warned refreshing the page, and sometimes using multiple pages while gambling will cause this message to display- ‘No Refreshing the Casino. Click here to go back’. Some games also cause you to restart after a certain time of inactivity. The highest winner from each game throughout the day gets a 10k bonus at new day! Every 5 levels you gain another betting option:*

 Level  Betting Amount
 1  $ 5, $ 10, $ 50
 5  $ 250
 10  $ 1,000
 15  $ 2,500
 20  $ 5,000
 25  $ 10,000
 30  $ 25,000
 35  $ 50,000
 40  $ 75,000

Slots In slots if you get 2/3 numbers the same you double your money. If you get all 3 numbers the same, you get 50x your money. This is a very good option for low levels who don’t want to lose much money, as it is relatively safe.


High-Low In High-Low you also have the oportunity to make a lot of cash, with a low original bet. It is much easier for high levels to make large amounts of money, because of the amount they can bet. Stated by many to have better odds than Roulette and to make more money, it does however take a long period of time to play ( And is dangerously addictive…). It is simple to play- When the dealer draws Ace – 6 pick higher, and for 8 – King pick lower. 7 is a 50/50 percent chance of winning/ losing so it’s up to you. Pulling out early can make money over time, while playing until you’ve won the maximum once every few days can be worth it also. You are kicked out of your High/ Low game once you win 22 hands., Poker and RR


Keno Keno is a fun Casino game, but people have not been known to earn large sums from playing it. More of an extra, rather than a truly invaluable addition.


Lottery $10,000 per ticket, and you can buy as many as you want as long as you have enough casino tokens (costs one per ticket). The winner is drawn on new day Sunday and wins it all! The winner is announced in the newspaper. Once thing to note, however, is that while still giving better odds than real ‘jackpot’, or lotto etc, because no money is sidetracked by the sellers, the odds are not in your favour, as with other casino games.


Craps Note: The bet amount on craps is always 25x your level, unlike the other games. Craps doesn’t earn you a lot of money. For a low level player the extra 50$ earned per dice attempt (if you win) may make the difference, but fora high level it isn’t enough money. The losses are also quite hefty, in view of the winnings. However, by winning off the first roll you can make a nice sum of money. If you want to make some fast money with no danger of losing any yourself, there is a foolproof strategy. Roll the dice. If you get a 7 or 11 on the first roll click ‘Roll Again for a new Point’. If you don’t win off the first roll, click ‘casino’ and then go back to craps. Following these instructions you should never lose any money. Exploitation of bugs is not allowed within TC. Torn City Basic takes no responsibility for the consequences of using this strategy. If you are concerned if this is legal, mail a member of TC staff. (no longer possible) Remember, you need to have 10 casino tokens left over to play Craps.


Russian Roulette In order to challenge people to play ‘RR’ you need to have completed the mission ‘Operation Prospect’ (level 7 and up), and have gained the S&W Revolver. You can be challenged if you haven’t got the revolver and/ or haven’t passed the mission, however you must be above level 7 in order to play. The odds are NOT the same for both the challenger and the challengee… The challengee has a much better chance of winning. Update: Heavily debated. Possible 50/50 chance for both players. PLEASE NOTE; There have been a number of RR scams. TC has just fixed two known ones, but more may still exist. Please try not to play for items, as people often don’t send them. Also try to play people you know you can trust. If you think you have been scammed, issue a player report.

“The odds are NOT the same for both the challenger and the challengee… The challengee has a much better chance of winning.” No way this is correct! I have played tons of games, and never notice any significant difference.

Has anyone OFFICALLY confirmed that gambling contributes to xp? I haven’t seen anything, personally. Aerozol: That info has been taken from staff comments on the forums. It’s legit, assuming helpers know what they’re on about

ThNx for the info !

Who is the challengee? is that the person who received the challenge? or the person who offered the game? TCb: The Challenger is the person who offered the game, the challengee is the person who recieved it.

hey i think that your nerve might be a factor in rr now but i am not for sure of this.
written by Passing Dream, June 09, 2007
When I did the math, I found that you had a 48-52 chance of winning as challenger-challengee in RR.
written by Passing Dream, June 09, 2007
Roulette numbers slightly off. Yes, the game pays you 50xBet when you win, but it also does not charge you for that spin, making your payout 51/38, not 50/38. It’d be good to reflect that here and on the Roulette calculator.
written by Passing Dream, June 09, 2007
Hi-Low, when done “correctly”, has an odds of 10/13 per hand (excluding ties). That’s .77 chance of advancing. If you are going for 22 consecutive hands, you should win, statistically, one round in 321. When you do, you should be winning about $12469/lvl . (2.5 x (1.5^21)) … That makes your per-token value $33.8xLvl (Compare to 33.5 for roulette.)
written by Passing Dream, June 09, 2007
Hey, sorry, quick update on game returns. I wrote that the token value for roulette was 33.5 (i.e. 51/38 x 25) . That is in error. 51/38 is your return, but does not account for the cash paid in to achieve it. Hence, the return for roulette is (51-38)/38, which is a humble .34 not 1.34 Thus, hi-low pays roughly 4x more back than roulette.

I’ve noticed a pattern for RR of what I’ve played. What I’ve seen is every other game the challengee wins. I played the RR game in ‘Operation Prospect’ and lost, then someone else challenged me and I won, and finally played the RR game in ‘Operation Prospect’ again and lost. Of course tho I’ve only played three games.

hey there! i got some questions to ask about this game. today somebody hospitalised me the time i was playing rr. i got in the hospital so, my opponrnt backed off and the money was refunded. that means that if somebody backs off during the game don’t lose his money? also, what about if someone just stop pulling the trigger when it is his turn to do it? the game will froze there, how is it going to end?

As far as I know you don’t get exp for gambling. I’ve never seen anywhere with concrete proof. even here you say “if the helpers know what they’re on about”.

what happens if a person goes to long without doing anything? TCB: Assuming you mean being inactive on TC entirely, without logging in, TC staff sometimes does inactive user purges, in which users who’ve been inactive for 30 days or more are deleted.

Thats Spam up there. Is spam ok here? That’s straight advertising, gordman. First post, new member. Thanks for the tips TCB! TCB: Sorry, we’ve removed it. Some harmless advertising is allowed, for things within TC, but we don’t think that an online gambling site is the best place for us to send people who possibly already gamble to much on TC 😉

why isn’t blackjack included i made a fortune outta that!
written by fbk, December 01, 2007
Russian Roulette should always be exactly 50/50 One bullet in six numbered barrels, 1 to 6. Yours are barrels 1, 3 or 5. Your opponents are barrels 2, 4 or 6. Provided the chance of the bullet coming up in each barrel is evenly distributed, you each have a 3 in 6 chance of shooting yourself in the foot.

“written by Buzzar123, April 19, 2008 is there a limit to how much you can gamble in blackjack ?? ” If you mean at one time I don’t think so, if you mean in a day, no. That’s why blackjack is so powerful in bankrupting people.

the max amount you can bet on blackjack at a time is 10 mil.

What happens if someone doesn’t shoot back in RR, do they time out eventually or are you screwed and have to back out? TCB: Not sure if they time out, but you can definitely report people to staff for not taking the shot.
written by Corkie, June 04, 2008
For Pete’s sake people. Here are the ACTUAL CALCULATED STATISTICS on Russian Roulette. Turn 1: The probability of getting the bullet is obviously 1/6 Turn 2: The probability of getting the bullet is two sixths X THE PROBABILITY OF THE GAME STILL BEING PLAYED – I.E. THE BULLET WASN’T ALREADY SHOT. This comes to 10/36 Turn 3: The same applies: The probability of getting the bullet turns out to be 60/216 Turn 4: Same again: The probability of getting the bullet is 240/1296 Turn 5: And again: The probability of getting the bullet is 600/7776 Turn 6: The probability of getting the bullet is the same as the probability of having got that far, and is 720/46656 To conclude, if you add up turns 1, 3, and 5, the total probability of the person who goes first getting the bullet comes to 169/324, which is slightly more than half. So the peron who goes first is more likely to lose.
written by aerozol, June 05, 2008
@Corkie: In my opinion: In the end it comes down to how it’s been coded: Either TC has already decided which chamber the bullet is at the get go, meaning the probability is 50% for both players (already decided upon the start of the game), or it calculates it on each shot, in which case you’re right. I’m not a maths person (god I hate stats 😉 so feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

ive played RR before but im level 4 and i was challanged but the guide says u have to be level 7 to play how is that possible
written by Franksloss, June 20, 2008
Roulette is a waste of money. These guides are very misleading. Craps is obviously the best way to make money. I make anywhere from 30 to 80k per day playing craps. I wasted 75 tokens on the roulette and lost 60k ( my normal winning, a net loss of 120k or more). TCB: Our statistics are accurate. TCB takes no responsibility for your bad luck.

I wrote a rapid RR simulator using Visual Basic. The result (after 5000 bullets were shot) was: — Bet: $1000 — Diaz’ streak: $2405000. Evelyn’s streak: $2595000. — %Challenger = 48.1% %Challangee = 51.9%

a lil tip on slots, if you click the “spin again” link the instant it appears it seems you have a better chance of coming out with good winnings i’ve made as much as 5k-8k per day, good option for beginners or for a quick sum of cash
written by King_Sandman, January 07, 2009
They’ve changed the betting and payouts on the casino, just lost $4m on Roulette betting max ($75k for a level 40) and only winning ($2m ish) once near the end of my tokens 🙁
written by King Sandman, January 07, 2009
More in depth detail: I just played Roulette for the 1st (and last) time since they changed the way it works. As a level 40 I could bet up to $75,000 each time (I’ll try to post the increments later). I went 80 tokens before winning and it only paid out $2,700,000 (36 times the bet) which is way down from what it used to be. I ended up with -$4,050,000 and will not be playing again at those odds as on average I you will lose. I’ve re-written your in-depth look at roulette: “The roulette used to be often considered the fastest way of making money in TC. It is not recommended to bid any amount of money and to stick a number where the sun doesn’t shine. When you win you gain 36x what you bet, making for not at all profitable gambling. The odds for Roulette are 1:38 and payout is 36:1. Many people have different ‘lucky numbers’. Feel free to mail one of the admins of TCB for their ‘winning’ numbers. Yes, they are all different (mine is 13). The main feature of roulette is that you can win, or lose, a large amount of money in a short amount of time. Assuming the roulette table is straight: Odds of winning are 1:38, or 1/38 = .0263 Payout is 36 * betting amount. X = Max bet spent on each roll (75,000 for level 40) Max winning is therefore X*36 on a winning roll. Lets say you do 75 spins. Chances are you will win (1/38)*75 = 1.97 times That means you will lose 73.02 Times. You would spend X*75 You would win 1.97*X*36 = X*71.05 Your winning on 75 rolls are: W = (X*71.05) – (X*75) = -X*3.95 At level 40 that means you average losing 75000*3.95 = -296053 per day (or more if you waste your 15 free tokens and/or your Casino job points.” feel free to take out the sarcasm and rudeness, I’m a little hot right now!

Chedburn really f@cked up the casino. I do NOT advise anyone to play it. Chedburn has rigged the casino! The odds are not right! I’m losing hands in Blackjack, which I should clearly be winning! Then when I drop down to a $1 bet, just to see what happens, I win hands I clearly should NOT be winning! He has rigged it to STEAL ALL, OR ALMOST ALL of our money! DO NOT PLAY THE CASINO ANYMORE!!!!!

for Lottery, how many tickets do you need to buy to have your luck? and i noticed most jackpot winners are those with higher levels, does low levels also get the chance to win it? just curious.
written by kakir, April 13, 2009
roulette works better if u use all 90 tokens or more and not the 75 and overall u will be in profit u usually win three times in 90 tokens so u win 18x betted amount normally and over all u will make 15x betted amount over a long period of time
