Crazy Nick's Software Picks: Leisure Suit Larry's Casino is a gambling video game developed and published by Sierra On-Line in 1992 for MS-DOS. It was part of the Crazy Nick's Software Picks series of budget computer games, as well as the Leisure Suit Larry series. This particular title includes jacks or better video poker, blackjack (with surrendering and doubling), and a slot machine. It was created using the Sierra Creative Interpreter engine.



Since I'm not very interested in gambling, this was one of the last games in the Crazy Nick's Software Picks series that I tried. As expected, it was just a gambling simulator and nothing else. I tried a few times to amass the $10,000 needed to break the bank, but, as I'm not very good at gambling card games, I never surpassed $2,000, and had little desire to keep trying.

Best Version: DOS

— This section contains spoilers! —


  • The game competently enforces the rules of blackjack, jacks or better video poker, and a primitive slot machine.
  • The elevator music, although dull, is actually pretty fitting for the setting.


  • The slot machine is pretty dull. Many far more exciting slot machines were in casinos at the time, and the developers could have modeled it after those.


  • There isn't much to say about this game. As with most gambling games, you either have to be extremely lucky, or be sort of lucky and memorize a bunch of complex strategies. I don't find either of these options enjoyable.


Box Art

The box art is about what you would expect from a budget release: garish. It has amateur clipart, a screenshot, and bright eye-catching text.
