What's your problem? If that space is annoying you, don't go there, like I do. Been there on opening day, realized it's not my thing, and thats it.

 

But even if you post in a thread here, try to be constructive or, even better, humourous. Or give Sony officials something to think about.

 

Posts like your's might even turn out contra productive for solving the problem, cause no one will take them serious, believe me, ok?

.... Casino's in general are a scam why should Home's version be any different.

If you don't like it don't use the space. Simple.

It's no different from the Midway. You pay to play and depending on how good you are depends on whether you win the rewards.

Like the others have said, if you don't want to spend money, don't go to the casino...

For someone who seems to get off to PS HOEM HAX you sure seem to have made a huge oversight. This is NOT a technical issue or bug.

Gonna disagree on the whole "Scam = Casino" thing...

 

Scams are tricks (e.g. swindling or cheating people out of money), whereas casinos are upfront about the odds being in the favour of the house (e.g. Roulette is 2.7% / spin in the favour of the house, Blackjack - if you pay perfect basic strategy - is 0.55%/hand on a six-deck game etc...)

 

UK casinos have to provide information about this (known as "The House Edge") in leaflet form for all customers, therefore I would disagree with scam label.

 

 

P.S. BTW, I am a casino manager and have been in the business for over 20 years, so maybe I'm biased!?

Casino on ps home not really a scam, that is a vile word to use and the Casino Manager is correct in his dialog

What it really is,   is bringing gambling into Playstation Home Network, perhaps in a mild form, but gambling none the less.  Players (users) buy Casino chips at one of the venues, they do this using their REAL money through their REAL bank accounts, PSN cards- whatever. The chances of winning more chips is extremely low, although some do succeed, (the game needs to have some winners to be convincing for advertisements) Even Car dealers run sweepstakes for lucky winners to get a new car! its just good advertisement.

But when people BUY an item in A Home Store- its expected they OWN it, like furniture items clothes for their avatars or their private spaces. In The Casino, you BUY chips- and its a foregone conclusion, your going to loose those chips in a relatively short period of time. They're GONE!...they ain't coming back... like a t shirt or a chair item. So you BUY more Chips- end result?   You loose again!, sop you buy even more!....Now that part of the Casino my friend - is a Scam!.......Gambling does NOT belong in Playstation HOME, the concept of the casino is not a bad one however if its done in such a way the player does NOT ultimately loose all the chips they buy with their real money. Whats bought and paid for in a Home store should be considered an item purchased so that the user can, as with anything utilize it in their wardrobe, inventory, or Character functions. NOT LOOSE it

as if in an actual gambling game!  which HOME SHOULD NOT BE. Players cannot win against a computer which is what happens in this Casino place.  Perhaps Scam is a strong word to use- but- it fits here.

Wouldn't call it moaning about having a casino on Home but warning people (especially youngsters) not to fall in the trap of spending real money to gain nothing valuable in return. That's what I think, no more no less!

 

I personally go there just to chat, but don't spend money there. And I hope the majority will do the same sooner or (hopefully not) later.

can I add something please
I ave been in the casino for a while now and avent bought a chip yet and only played
with the free chips which I get weekly (where is the scam there FREE CHIPS)
I havent been to a casino where they give me 100 free chips every week
Yet my wininngs are up and am aven fun I dont class myself as lucky at all
I buy lots in home and have done for years
In response to guenivere_401 and its not a dig nor am I aven a go more a pause for thought
You state "But when people BUY an item in A Home Store-

or their private spaces."
What do you really own?? this is the closest comment to the film the matrix
I have heard in all my time on home
Home isnt real (its a game) if sony pulled the plug tomorrow would you expect
a full refund on all the items you have bought in Home???
Just curious and will listen to all comments returned.

Now I do have an issue I have won on poker a few times now with 6 players beating them all but never received my trophy for doing so

Is there a problem with this????

Im sorry but I disagree with the its a scam statement, whilst I do agree that youngsters should not go on and spend a fortune on the chips, I myself have not actually bought any chips and whilst I dont have thousands of chips or appear on the top tables leaderboards, I collected the 100 a week and used them on the 3 reel slot machine at a 25max bet and I have won over 7000 which I understand isnt amazing but seeing how the chips are free and I enjoy playing it, I dont gamble so you can still have fun without spending real money.
