|Fairyland Casino: The Dice Game|
Made by Alleria
The casino plays a game of dice. You can bet on the outcome.
After placing a bet of 100, 1.000 10.000, 100.000 or 1.000.000 on 1 or more numbers, three dice are rolled.
Depending on the amount of numbers you guessed right you win back 2, 3 or 5 times your bet.
The outcome of the dice is totally RANDOM, it's possible to have 3 equal numbers as a result.
As you can see, this dice game behaves exactly like a casino; all bets are losing in the long run. In case you’re wondering what the number behind the minus sign means, read on.
Concept of Net Return
In order to evaluate how much each bet is “winning”, we introduce the concept of “net return”. Suppose one day you’re very free and decide to go to the Playing Ground, and you happen to be very rich. You make the same bet 216 times with the same stake on the same numbers. Your “net return” is the amount you expect to gain on average after multiplying by your stake.
For example, based on the table above, making a bet in 2 different numbers has a net return of -32. This means that if you bet on the same 2 different numbers 216 times with a stake of 1000 coins, you’ll end up losing 32000 coins in the exchange, on average.
Needless to say, a positive net return means the bet is winning in the long run, while a negative one means the bet is losing in the long run. Slightly less obviously, a bet with a greater net return is more attractive (and more winning) than a bet with a smaller net return.
Rules of the Dice Game
For those who are not familiar with the dice game, I’ll state the rules here. The Dealer hosts the dice game (lol). After the dice have finished shaking, you have 30s to place your bet on 1 or more numbers, up to a max of 3. Your stake could be 100, 1,000, 10,000, 100,000 or 1,000,000. You may also place different stakes on different numbers, but there is no reason to do that and for this entire article we assume all the stakes are the same. You may place bets on a number more than once, and doing so essentially increases your stake on that number; you win as many times as you have bets if that number appears, but you’re giving up a bet that you could have made on another number and won if it came out.
Every time a number that you bet appears once, you get 2x of your total stake in that number. If the same number appears twice, you get 3x of your total stake in that number. If the same number appears 3 times, you get 5x of your total stake in that number. Note that your stake is not refunded when you win (lol).
If all the numbers that you bet on did not appear, you don’t get anything and forfeit your stakes in all the numbers that you bet on.
Classifying the Bets
It is intuitive that each bet has its own net return; clearly betting on the same number 3 times yields a different result from betting on 3 different numbers, since the former is simply tripling your stake in 1 number, while betting on 3 different numbers allows for you to win in a large variety of ways.
For simplicity, the bets are classified based on the numbers that the stakes are placed on. The 6 different types of bets are:
• X: 1 of any number
• XX: 2 same numbers
• XY: 2 different numbers
• XXX: 3 same numbers
• XXY: 3 numbers, 2 of which are the same and the 3rd different
• XYZ: 3 different numbers
As mentioned earlier, each different bet has its own net return and hence must be calculated separately to find the net return of each of them.
|Catch the Thief|
To compete in "Catch the thief" you must first buy a ticket at NPC "Fake Ditch" for 1.000.000 coins, or 12 tickets for 10.000.000 coins. Then you can enter the contest.
The game has 6 stages, of increasing numbers of monsters.
The trick is to pick out the thief in each round correctly, thus increasing your possible end-reward with each round. There is no way to tell which monster is the thief.
When you guess right you can go to the next stage, or leave and get a reward ticket.
When you guess wrong, the game ends and you get consolidation ticket. Losing at stage 1 gets you a Prize Stub, at stage 2 a Sixth Prize Stub, etc.
Stubs can be exchanged for prizes and Reward tickets for stubs of at NPC Nell and Cherry
