The Snake-Eyes Casino is a room which can be built by the player in the Atrium of Strangetown Hotel in The Sims 2. As well as being the first room to be constructed in the Atrium, it's also the smallest of the six.
It costs 1500 simoleons to build and must be built as part of the beginning questline when Tristan Legend reccomends you build it. There is no unique music in the Snake-Eyes Casino, therefore Strange Day or Strange Night will play depending on the time of day. It's the smallest room in the Atrium, and also the only one not to come with an introductory factbox upon first visiting. As the first room to be built, it rewards you with a 6% hotel score increase once completed.
The Snake-Eyes Casino is the only building leading off the Atrium that is compulary to build as all the others are simply there as added bonuses for the hotel. 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 is another card game that can be played in the Snake-Eyes Casino called Moogoo Monkey. This minigame can be unlocked by one of two ways. The first, which is easy if you have the GBA version of the game, just requires you to play the DS game with the GBA chip in at the same time. This method will only work if you have a Nintendo DS Lite or earlier as models including and later than the DSi don't have a GBA slot. The second method is to play the game on 14 December of any year, and Moogoo Monkey will unlock.
The Snake-Eyes Casino contains exclusive objects, much like the Spa & Gym. Below is a list of them.
- Keelhaulin' Cards
- Moogoo Monkey Cards (unlocked by playing the game on 14 December)
