Casino Viridoso V is a TADS 2 interactive fiction game and is © 2003 by Anonymous. It was a participant in the Speed-IF 5th Anniversary Special event.
In this very short game, you play as someone playing slots at the casino. Then the famous actor Harry Q. Suppertime IV walks in, a smiling dame on his arm. They're celebrating their five-week anniversary. "Faaabulous!"
This solution is by David Welbourn.
Casino main room
At turn 2, Harry and the dame enter. None of the NPCs seem to have any conversation topics, so don't bother with that.
> x greeter. pull lever. x harry. x dame. x fork. x hat.
> pull lever. g. g. (Continue to pull the lever until you've won twice. As soon as you have the coin, the lights will go out.)
> xyzzy. z. (Wait until the lights come back on; you can't do much else until they do.)
> x coin. s.
> x bum. give coin to bum. xyzzy. wear hat. n.

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!
I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
