Setup (.casino)

All players must agree to our policies on recording activity. If you do not agree, you cannot play. House rules!

library(casino)
 
# create a local file for storing persisent player data
setup()
#> No records found.
#> Storing player records at '/Users/anthony/Documents/casino/.casino'
#> Updating value for environment variable 'CASINO_FILE'.

This allows us to store player information persistently between games and R sessions.

Create a Player

You can create a new player manually.

 
# Create a new player
Player$new(name = "Player 1")
#> You have no money!
#> Player: 
#>   Name: Player 1
#>   Balance:  100
#>   Level:  0
#>   Played:  1
#>   Debt:  100
 
# View all available player profiles
players()
#> # A tibble: 1 x 2
#>   name     balance   
#>   <chr>    <chr>     
#> 1 Player 1 100.000000

Or just start playing, and one will automatically be created for you.

# Start a new game (this will auto-create a player)
Blackjack$new(who = "Player 2")
#> You have no money!
#> Blackjack (w/  1  decks): 
#> Player: Player 2
#> Bank: 100
#> Start a new game with `play()`.
 
# View all available player profiles (again)

I think I have a gambling problem

If you want to play a lot of games, you can write a script. Just make sure to silence the output (verbose = FALSE) and sounds (sound = FALSE).

# poker (stud)
x <- Poker$new(who = "Player 1", type = "stud", bet = 10, verbose = FALSE, sound = FALSE)
#> Loading player profile...
for (i in 1:50) 
  suppressMessages(x$play())
 
# blackjack (blind)
x <- Blackjack$new(who = "Player 1", bet = 5, verbose = FALSE, sound = FALSE)
#> Loading player profile...
for (i in 1:50) {
  suppressMessages(x$play())
  if (x$active)
    x$stand()
}
 
# penny slots
x <- Slots$new(who = "Player 1", bet = 1, verbose = FALSE, sound = FALSE)
#> Loading player profile...
suppressMessages(x$play(spins = 50))
#> Do you want to `play()` again?

Ok, now I lost everything...

If you run out of money, the Bank will immediately loan you 100.

You: "So, what's the interest rate on this loan?" Bank: "Oh, don't worry. It's very reasonable..."

Wait, how much did you say I owe?

# player profile is stored in `$who` of a game object
player <- x$who
 
player$debt()
#> [1] 300

It's closing time...

What a fun day at the casino! Or, was it?

# player profile is stored in `$who` of a game object
player <- x$who
 
# Overall
player$summary()
#> # A tibble: 1 x 4
#>   games   bet   win   net
#>   <int> <dbl> <dbl> <dbl>
#> 1   157   739   566  -173
 
# By Game
player$summary(game)  
#> # A tibble: 3 x 5
#>   game      games   bet   win   net
#>   <chr>     <int> <dbl> <dbl> <dbl>
#> 1 Blackjack    51   275   245   -30
#> 2 Poker        53   411   204  -207
#> 3 Slots        53    53   117    64

Let's relive the excitement!
