2. Admittedly, it is a weird kind of game (oddly enough, one of the digitized photos slightly resembes Jim Brass of CSI). As far as I know, it's also the only VC game that uses the SNES mouse (though that isn't implemented on VC). One really fun thing you can do is when you win the game (get $10 million) you get to say what you'll do with the money. There's a great video on YouTube of someone playing with that. By the way, this game is statistically beatable in several ways:

1. Betting and resetting if you lose.
2. Hideaway $5/Buffalo Head $25 slots (both have returns over 100%)
3. Poker (if you can beat the computer AI-I was never that good).
4. Blackjack (as far as I know, you can card count without getting kicked out).

There's also a host of NPC encounters (1-player only) in which you can win money or lose money on the side.

Overall, it's an okay game that might be fun in a party setting (no poker in multiplayer, of course). Tournament blackjack anyone?

By the way TYP, the music isn't nearly as good when you have to listen for hours on end.

Guess it's time for me to put in another request.

A friend of mine had Vegas Stakes. I don't remember the digitized portraits, but I remember the story mode having some random events where you would find a wallet and have the choice to keep it or return it (sometimes for a large reward). I also remember that once you got to the best casino, with no betting limits, you could just go all-in for red or black in roulette every time. With the save system, it was super easy to make millions within a short time.
