Two games on one cassette sounds like good value... and it is! Here, Micromega presents two casino games, Blackjack and Craps.

Your Spectrum plays for the house in both cases but is kind enough to let you win at least some of the time. The screen display is inventive and features some novel uses for the user-defined graphics; I really like the hand that rolls the dice! You could also learn a thing or two from the way in which the programs are written.

The games themselves are straightforward. Blackjack is a form of pontoon and Craps is merely bettiing on the fall of the dice. But somehow, even though the idea is simple, unoriginal, and I'm not a gambler, the programs held my attention.
