UPDATE::: The devs have seen it fit to immediately ban me from their discusson board after this review was posted. For that I warn folks who have issues to be careful speaking up. Seems this Dev likes their dirty tricks when they don't want their filthy laundry aired out.
This is my final review edit. After enough time with four kings, I have decided they have completely lost touch with the fanbase who supported them from day one. Just as they did on playstion home for six long years.
Im going to be honest here, I'm not liking the way things are going. I thought after they had their time with playstation home, we'd see changes that showed they learned their lesson last time from customer feedback.
I remember a time when DL had a casino on ps home, it was an avitar social world with literally hundreds of mini games and places to chat and play. Game themed rooms and more. They also had a casino there and they did the same thing with chips there. The games there were PLAUGED with bugs and cheaters, very little was done. However they had no issue releasing an apartment for over 50 dollars that came with the same games you already had access to in their casino and they REFUSED to change the pricing even with such negative feedback. Oh and might I add, the people who were stupid enough to buy it lost those items anyway when ps home closed it's doors this past march.
People lost thousands of chips with no rembursement, and the tournaments were a joke. You had to pay 4.99 for a tournament bracelet with no guarantee of any reward. Just a pat on the back for those who didnt make the cut, while they pocketed their real money.
I was much happier with this game during EA. Now? Theyre making the game completely un fun by catering to the new players they want to spend money. Bingo nerfs are beyond terrible.
Im now seated at a progressive game with over 25 players. The pot would usually be over 100k. It isn't even breaking 40k right now...and rp payouts are the same as the main floor games.
The people who bought in during early access are being pushed away to cater to the casual player with a spending problem.
I have taken a break from four kings and returned today to see if the nerfs were truly as bad as they say, I'm unhappy to report they are far worse than what players are complaining about. I remember sitting at bingo for hours, and not having this back of luck either. One could say it comes and it goes, but this is just ridiculous.
I was quick to respond to a gent who made a post on how this game is not only exploiting potential gambling addicts, but nothing more than a cash grab. I really would like to recall that person's username, so I can apologize and say they might be right.
Because the players who bought into this game and made is possible for it to even make it out of early access are being disregarded. If this is what developers plan to do to people who buy into their games in order to support a title, I am swearing off EA games entirely. Because this seems to be a NASTY habit with devs on here. They bend over backwards during EA, but after they get your money all bets are off.. If you are into casino games, you will love this. You don't need to spend real money.. If you were a fan of Playstation Home's casino and poker, this game has the style and social aspect carried over to the PC. I have been looking for some kind of poker\/casino game on steam for some time and having been fond of Playstation Home's format this was an easy sell.

Always more fun to walk into a full casino than a dead one.. At first, I was surprised when I clicked to buy Four Kings Casino All-In Pass and found out that this is just a DLC, and for purchase - it want to buy the game itself. Ok. I bought it. Since a VERY LONG time waiting for something similar Reel Deal Slots in Steam. And cause I'm a fan of this genre of games.
And I was very disappointed... the presence of early access in no way justifies an EXTREMELY UGLY BLOCKY graphics. Many games of this genre 15 years ago looked much better than this game. Halls, which is nearly the same as each other are no different and artificially stretched by placing the same machine 10 pieces in a row. Only 1 kind of horrible slot machine (seriously???) without interesting bonus and the possibility of doubling (on mobile devices, in F2P games - slots which made on a much more decent level - hundreds). Video poker without the doubling possibility and other games made on the most primitive level without interesting variations. And I doubt very much that at least some of these problems will be fixed with the release.
Including a full absence of people in the lobby. I can't even give out my VIP invitations to friends in Steam, cause the VIP-invitation system not working at the moment.
Not to mention the fact that my first acquaintance with the game began with an immediate disconnect from server after logging into the system and inability to reconnect quite a long time, resulting to log into the game I was only able the next day.. If you are a true gambling person, you'll love this game. If like me you were looking for a fun way to pretend to gamble then do not buy this game because once out of Early Access it could end up costing you a lot of money if you continue to play the game. During Early Access you can earn small amounts of chips (usually 25 chips at a time) for doing several things like visiting certain area's of the casino, plus you can earn the same number of chips for every 15 minutes you spend in game. When you enter the Casino after purchasing the game you are given 1000 chips.
My first love is slots, so I casually ran over to the slots and after 10 spins I'd spent virtually all of my chips. Thankfully, during the Early Acess phase you can get more chips for very little money; i.e. there are several selections ranging from 500 chips to 40 000 chips each one of which costs you $0.01 to purchase. This amount is deducted from your Steam wallet. Once early access is over these will undoubtably change and cost much more. Sadly, like any gambling den, the odds are always stacked against you.
After the 10 turns on the slots, with virtually no chips left and not wanting to wait around for almost an hour before I could get a couple more spins, I left, then rejoined the following day because I was under the impression that during Early Access we would be given 1000 chips every day, but this was not the case (I purchased the basic game plus the cheaper of the dlc's, (costing me a total of just over \u00a316).
I don't know whether you can or will be able to convert any winnings to real money, but even if you were, it's only a lucky few that would ever manage to get any real money back.
Personally I'm really disappointed with this game. I was hoping to be able to play a wide range of different slot machines, but there was little variety to be found, plus until I decided to buy the highest slection of chips I only had enough for two spins and four goes on the roulette table (which has a minimum bet of 10 chips).
Part way through my second visit there was a server reboot. I was given literally a minute's warning in which I was asked to log off. As I was part way through a gamble when this occured I wasn't pleased.
Despite it being in Early Access, so by definition not a completed game, I can't recommend this game to anyone but hardened gamblers.. A very legit Casino game. Mostly it's great for testing any gambling theories out, before going to a real casino and trying with real money. This game doesn't require you to spend any real money AT ALL. and it has pretty much EVERY casino game out there. If you run out of money you (can) buy more, or you can just wait a little bit, do some side mission type thing, or wait until tomorrow to get some more play money. So this developer makes real money of actual desperate gamblers that spend real cash in order to top leader boards or buy cool clothes or whatever. But if you just want to try certain strategies before using real money on them, this is the perfect game for that!. I like the variety of game play, just look forwarrd to everyone coming once this goes live..be nice to have a few more bodies in here :D. shows potential. but wonder if it will turn into a real money online cassino, hopefulyt not. An interesting hybrid between an MMO and a Facebook casino game, Four Kings adds a social element that is missing from those games. Reminds me a bit of the long since cancelled This is Vegas but multiplayer. In this state, there is a lot of variety in the different types of casino games, even if they suffer from the major population issue mentioned below. But at least it isn't just limited to a few of them. Best part is that you don't have multiple spam messages all along your Facebook wall from your parents trying to get chips from you.
Game runs fine on my machine at least and save for one period where I had issues loading the character customizer, everything is fine on a technical standpoint.
The only thing holding the game back is its lack of players, which due to the social nature of the game seriously harms the game even in this Early Access state. Hopefully once it launches people will give it a look. Maybe if Digital Leisure adds crafting and zombies, people will play it. :)
Some suggestions to the developer for release and beyond:
Figure out some reason for people to use the nightclub, whether its a drink-serving minigame to earn chips or something else worthwile. Seems useless at this point in time. Same with the Hotel Room. I'd love a GTA style TV where you watch pre-made shows but that's way too expensive for this kind of indie development studio. A possible area for user-generated content perhaps?
