As I’ve been a Gamer since the late 80s, I couldn’t help to think about the impact and importance of luck and gambling mechanics in the world of games, because quite a few games require more than just skill to master. For example, in the “Fallout” series luck (luck is one of the seven primary statistics in the SPECIAL character system) plays a rather important role, because the higher luck levels you have; the better is your chances of getting a critical hit on a target.

There exist both casinos and a handful of places where you can gamble in “Fallout 2”.

Furthermore, a high luck level will also increase your chances of having lady luck on your side while gambling in some of the “Fallout” series casinos, and that is something that could help you out quite a bit with no doubt. You see, if you get your hands on a lot of money from the very start, then you could better your odds of surviving in the toxic wasteland by a whole lot (you could buy better gear and whatnot).

“Fallout: New Vegas” takes place in Las Vegas. So naturally there are both casinos, gambling and gamblers to be found in the game.

It’s also worth pointing out that a higher level of luck improves your chances of stumbling upon a special random encounter as well. In other words, you could find places, people and whatnot that you might wouldn’t have found with a lower level of luck. In my case though, I didn’t find out that before I had played through “Fallout 2” for the very first time (“Fallout 2” was my very first “Fallout” title, and I was just 12 years old at the time).

The “Dungeon Keeper” series actually allows you to build your own casinos, and that allows your monsters to try their luck at your casino tables.

Nevertheless, I learned my lesson after my first play through. So I had a much less hard time with “Fallout 2” during my second play through. I would also like to point out that the “Fallout” series is far from the only game series where luck and gambling mechanics plays a role in the said series game world. I mean, just take “Dungeon Keeper”, “System Shock”, “The Witcher”, “Red Dead: Redemption” and “Watch Dogs”.

Believe it or not, but you could indeed play some casino games in “System Shock 2” (you will find the Von Braun casino at the mall area).

My point would be that all of them have gambling mechanics of some kind (in the “Dungeon Keeper” series, you can even build your own casinos!), and luck plays an important part in those game series as well (maybe not in the same kind of way as it does in the “Fallout” series, but in the kind of way that you might be lucky enough to find a good or rare random generated item, weapon or whatever).

So if you feel like you’re lucky in the world of games, then you might want to try your luck in real-life via New Casino and some other online gambling sites. As for me. I rather stick to pushing my luck in the world of games, because I’m anything but lucky when it comes to real-life gambling.
