Casino Simulation Games Let You Build and Manage Your Own Casino

Do you enjoy city-building style games? These games focus on time and resource management to let you simulate the excitement of a real casino. Not only do these games allow you to design the floor plan and upgrade and install new poker tables, roulette wheels, or slot machines, they also may allow you to add a gift shop, restaurant, bar, or other establishment making the game much more in depth than just determining the payout rates for your casino games. Some games even allow you to hire and train your own casino staff such as blackjack dealers, entertainers, janitors, or bouncers. Many people enjoy playing at online casinos for real money, but when you can’t afford to pay to play, these casino management games let you get your gambling fix. These games can also be a great way to learn some new casino tips and strategies to help you win big the next time that real money is on the table.

Here is a quick list of some of the most popular Casino Simulation Games.

Casino Inc. – http://store.steampowered.com/app/361320/ Casino Inc allows you to relive the 1970s in a gangster/mafia ran casino.

Sim City – Many versions of Sim City allow you to build casinos to attract tourists to your town. These casinos feature different themes such as Sci-fi, Roman, or Elegant themes. Each theme will bring in different types of tourists. You can compliment your casinos by building them next to other tourist destinations such as theme parks. You need to be prepared for the incoming visitors by first building ample mass transit and airports as well as hiring some extra police to fight the increasing crime rates that will result by adding the Casino to your cities.

Sims 4 – Many users have created custom content for the Sims 4 which includes special Casino themed items. Check out our list of Sims 4 Casino Themed items here.

Sims 3 – The Lucky Simolean is a special casino that can be purchased in the Sims store to be added to your Sims 3 game. This will allow your sims to play blackjack or slot machines. It is also included in the gold edition of Lucky Palms or can be purchased separately.

Sims 2 – The DS version of Sims 2 allows you to build “Snake-Eyes Casino” in one of the hotel rooms. Inside the casino, there is a Slot Machine which costs 1 simoleon per go, and reaps small rewards. On one side of the casino, there is a table with a dealer behind some Keelhaulin’ cards which can be played. If the player wins Keelhaulin’, there is a moderate to large cash reward. However, if you lose there is no penalty or loss so it’s worth having a go. There’s also another Minigame which will unlock if you play on December 14th of any year in game time.

Sims 4 CC (Custom Content) to Create Your Own Casino

We recently did an article about Casino Management Simulation Games in which we mentioned that there’s a lot of custom content for Sims 4 that allows you to create a fun casino for your sims so when you can’t afford to gamble real money at a canadian online casino, but you still want to spin a slot machine or play roulette you can get your gambling fix by re enacting your casino dreams in Sims 4. This article will highlight and provide links to show you where you can get some fun casino themed custom content to add to your game.

One of the things I recommend to help you create a casino in the Sims 4, is the Sims 4 Get Together expansion game. It just happens to be on sale for 50% Off at time of this post as part of their winter sale too. You can grab it for $19.99 for a limited time at https://www.thesims.com/store/… The reason I so highly recommend this is because it adds new items and features such as arcade machines, night clubs, and as the name suggests, it allows for your sims to get together for a fun night “out on the town” which will add new interactions, skills, and discussion topics for your sims.

This lot (BrandonTR’s Casino Hollywood) Can be a nice base to get you started using black, red, and gold colors, and flahsy lighting – however, it’s missing any kind of casino items such as slot machines or card tables. https://www.thesimsresource.com/downloads/details/category/sims4-lots-community/title/casino-hollywood/id/1283565/

brittpinkiesim’s “Casino Stuff” can help solve the problem by providing “decorative” (which means that sadly your Sims still can’t interact with the items) but “decorative” slot machines, card tables, neon signs, dice tables, art, and more. http://brittpinkiesims.tumblr.com/post/136909347735/the-sims-4-casino-stuff-hey-guys-i-know-its

Norianddarksims Vegas Casino pack also adds some more decorative slot machines and game tables. http://mysims4blog.blogspot.com/2015/07/new-vegas-casino-set-by-noiranddarksims.html

There’s premium content you can purchase called “Vintage Glamor” which might also be useful in creating a casino in Sims 4. https://www.thesims.com/news/sims-4-vintage-glamour-release – As a side note, this pack also includes a buttler which your sims can hire so they can get more done each day, which makes it a very useful stuff pack to purchase, even if not using it to create a casino in the game. 🙂

Sadly, at time of this post, there are no mods or custom content that allow your sims to actually play the casino games. The best way for your sims to gamble is to go back and play Sims 3 and purchase the add-on module which includes the Lucky Simolean casino.

Make Your Sims More Beautiful With Custom Content

Custom Content for Sims 3
Custom content for Sims 3

I often spend more time modding my sims and creating sims, families, and pets, than I do actually playing the games. lol. The sims franchise appeals to a broad range of people and is probably the most well loved game amongst “non-gamer” girls. Girls whom typically do not enjoy video games seem to love the Sims.

 

One neat thing about the Sims is that you can design your own hairstyles, skin tones, clothing, jewelry, makeup, and accessories. This is known as reskinning or modding in many games. The neat thing about the Sims series is that your new meshes and  textures can coexist with EA’s default textures and items. So you don’t have to lose any items to make room for the new ones.

 

So let’s say you’re just not feeling very creative, but you’d still like to get some new stuff for your sims. Of course, there’s EA’s store – but in my opinion EA’s textures are just butt ugly. The fan community is really where it’s at when it comes to modding your game.

There are a number of sites and resources available for owners of Sims 2 and Sims 3 games who wish to add fan created content to their games.

 

My favorite site for such things is The Sims Resource at http://thesimsresource.com It used to be that most items were available pay only, but that changed in 2013. Now even free users can download all the items. I still subscribe to VIP because I like the basket feature which allows me to more quickly navigate the site and zips my downloads into one file.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It’s very affordable, just 11 dollars for a 2 month subscription. But the subscription is now completely optional so I really recommend checking them out. People from around the world use this site to share their sims creations. It’s a wonderful site with literally millions of items to add to your games.

I also recommend Blue Book for sims 3 custom hair. This site has all free hair and most (if not all of them) are not available on sites like the sims resource.

Spring 4 Sims is also very good. It has over 5,000 free sims 2 and sims 3 resources and is updated daily.

New Sea is my favorite source for sims 2 and sims 3 custom hair. Many of her files are available for free on thesimsresource.com however, she also has subscription only hair available only directly from her website.

Peggy Zone also has free sims 2 and sims 3 hair as well as subscription only hair for both games.

Tumblr can also be an excellent resource for custom content. Check out all the sims 3 content by visiting this link which pulls any content that’s tagged for sims 3 custom content Visit Tumblr Now

Do you have a favorite site that’s not listed here?

Leave a comment below so others can find more content for their game.

Feel free to share pics of your sims wearing their custom content also!
