You have conquered down-town Chicago, either way now it’s time to take on the mob and create a casino in the Project Highrise Las Vegas expansion.

SomaSim has boosted you from the boring concrete wall to wall that is Chicago, and thrown you into the desert to make your name with a glitzy place, where you could be rubbing shoulders with Dean Martin or trying to out-drink Frank Sinatra, all while also building your very own lucrative Casino.

As hey, everyone has to start with a plot of land and build it up, so get ready to get dirty as you start building and make a name for yourself as one of the great Casino builders in the land.

To help you get money from those who want to make it big, you have the following:

  • Full Casino lounges with all the favourites, such as Baccarat, Poker, Roulette and Slots.
  • Hotels, everyone needs sleep, just remember, a guy who puts down 20k bets wont be content with a closet.
  • Showhalls with booking and events, as if you want to make everyone happy you’ll need some live music.
  • VIP’s will turn up, be they Rock Stars (note; order new TV’s) or just a guy who wants to burn through 500k a night.
  • New challenges to deal with, such as random events and Air Conditioning, as it does get warm in the desert.

So, head on over and grab the Las Vegas expansion to make it big, or if you haven’t picked up the base game already, no time like the preset, sitting at a glorious 50% off discount on Steam as I write, ringa-ding-ding baby!
