When this came out on the 6th of January in 1989 I was far too young to understand the power of gambling but now I play Texas Hold ‘Em on my Oculus so it would have been a good fit.
“You are Casino Kid, a nameless youth who has 500$ in his pocket and is ready to face the best poker and blackjack players in the casino to increase this amount significantly. You move around a large casino room and talk to people. Some people will just chat with you, while others will challenge you to a game: either blackjack or poker. In the beginning, most people won’t agree to play with you. You’ll have to defeat the opponents in a particular order in order to be able to win all blackjack and poker games and to face the Final Opponent.”
I couldn’t find the commercial for Casino Kid on YouTube but I did find this perfectly aged Chuck E Cheese commercial that could only be made for a young boy in the 89s.
