Nice idea, thanks for sharing. I've been thinking that there could be two kinds of casinos. The current ones that are near the main station and a few other ones that are located away from the main station. These latter ones would be bigger and guarded by turrets. In practice systems that have Hoopy Casinos mentioned in their description would have these Vegas like stations. In these systems there would be no Hoopy near the main station.SirArian wrote: That makes sense. I was going to suggest that the likelihood of failure increased with the bid, but that wouldn't really solve the problem of saving to eliminate the risk... Maybe it could only be available if you have played a certain number of times?(Or something like that.)Hoopy Casino wrote:"Congratulations, Commander Jameson, you have played 10,000 games at the Coachwhio Hoopy Casino!

*The odds of an actual win are not increased by this membership. You are simply allowed to stake more on your games, which means that a win is more profitable. Coachwhio is not responsible for credits lost in the game. Membership fees are non-refundable.
These bigger stations could have per visit tier system that would trigger upon winning big. You would start with the basic options 10, 50 and 100. When your total winnings reach 1000, you'll gain access to tier two betting options, 100, 500 an 1000. There could also be tier 3 that would be locked at 10000. That would be 1000, 5000 and 10000. Leave the station and you'll be tier 1 again. That would effectively make exploiting hard and would give some incentive to keep on playing.
