Casino Guests

We’re thrilled to introduce a new guest type that’s all about living life on the edge – the Casino Guests! These folks are on a mission, and that mission is pure entertainment at your casino. They’re not here for the spa or the gym; they’re all about high-stakes thrills and big wins.

To cater to their unquenchable thirst for excitement, we’ve added an array of brand-new casino furniture and activities. You can now deck out your hotel with roulette tables, sports betting TVs, blackjack setups, craps tables, the Big Wheel, and a handy chips/token teller station.

For Casino Guests, the casino is their kingdom, but they might occasionally crave a refreshing drink or a top-notch bedroom to recharge before hitting the tables again. So, keep those bars well-stocked and ensure your rooms are cozy enough to entice them back to the gaming floor.

Naturally, with these new casino features, you’ll require more specialized staff to manage the gaming tables and the chips teller station, ensuring your guests’ top-notch gaming experience. So, prepare to welcome your Casino Guests and turn your hotel into the ultimate gaming hub. Roll the dice, deal the cards, and build your thriving casino empire!

Staff Skills & Traits

Each staff member can now boast up to three unique skills, and each of these skills can be honed up to six levels. The higher the level, the more effective the skill becomes. To level up, staff will need to utilize the new Staff Training Desk. But here’s a heads-up: skill training takes some time, so careful planning is crucial when investing in your staff’s growth.

These skills have a direct impact on your staff’s performance in specific roles. Some skills will make them excel in some jobs, while others will be better suited to other jobs.

In addition to skills, each staff member comes with up to two innate traits that define their character. Traits can represent qualities like being lazy, fast, grumpy, or more. These traits significantly influence how your staff perform their duties and interact with guests. They add an extra layer of complexity to your staffing strategy, making each hiring decision a more nuanced one.

Our hiring process has undergone a facelift. When recruiting new staff, you’ll now have a choice of three candidates. Once you hire one, they are removed from the pool, and you’re left with two options. But don’t worry, the pool isn’t static; every few days, the oldest member is replaced with a fresh face, keeping your options fresh. If you’re in a hurry or seeking specific skills, there’s also an option to spend some funds to ‘re-roll’ the selection and replenish it immediately (but this can be very costly).

All of these changes infuse the staff scheduling and management system with depth and decision-making. Your choices now carry more weight than ever, as you strive to assemble the perfect team to run your hotel efficiently. Get ready to dive into the fascinating world of staff management and lead your team to success!
