Graphics & Sound:

Another great use of the Game Boy Color (and only the Game Boy Color, mind you - Caesars Palace II doesn't work on any other Game Boy units). There's a lot of closet high-rollers out there who can't afford to lose their life savings on a week at Las Vegas. This has created a nice market for portable gambling games. Most of these have bad graphics, horrible sound, and only offer one game. Enter Caesars Palace II.

Caesars Palace II turns your Game Boy Color into a pocket sized casino. You'll forget all about your little portable video poker games when you see the beautifully rich colors used to make Caesars Palace II. The music is somewhat cheesy, but is very reminiscent of the music played by slot machines, so it aids in reinforcing the mood. Anyway, if the music gets to you, you can always turn in down.


Your game is in here. You can choose from 19 different games of chance, including Big 6, Slot Machines, Video Poker, Blackjack, Keno... a whole lot of games in here! And they're fun to play. Plus, there's an bird's eye view used to allow you to walk around inside the casino, to get to the game you wish to play. That's a neat touch. Eventually, however, I get down to the business of losing all of my money. Thankfully, there's a cashier who is almost always dumb enough to loan me money (hehe). And if I get FLAT broke, I reset the game.


There is no way to change the difficulty setting in Caesars Palace II. (For those of you who might not know it, there's no way to change the difficulty level in a real casino, either...) It's a simple matter of trying your luck. Play around with different strategies. Do good? Great. Save it. Do bad? Those is the breaks, kid!

Game Mechanics:

The interface used in Caesars Palace II is friendly and novel, and the odds and pay-outs are true to a real casino. (Odds and pay-outs are authenticated by expert statistician, William Bertrand, Ph.D.) This simply means that, you eventually will lose... if you're as lucky as I am.
