'Grand Casino Tycoon' Public Playtest This Coming Weekend

by Rainier on April 26, 2021 @ 8:00 a.m. PDT

In Grand Casino Tycoon, players will take on the highly competitive casino industry in Las Vegas by designing and building their very own extravagant gambling den.

Grand Casino Tycoon adds new levels of depth to the classic Tycoon game formula.

Virtual Bugsy Siegels will not only design the layout of their sparkling gambling dens, but will need to keep a close eye on the guests and strategically manage their wants, needs, and winnings — after all, you don’t want them to win or lose too much money! Find that magic middle-line and keep the chips flowing and the crowds happy!

In Grand Casino Tycoon, makin’ money is the name of the game, and simulated Sam Rothsteins will need to do whatever it takes to keep gamblers gamblin’ and the cash coming in. Place slot machines and games tables in strategic locations to maximize traffic, but make sure the drinks are nice and close by with easily accessible bars and restaurants. Design is only half the battle, however, and players will need to pay close attention to individuals winning more than they should — never forget, the house always wins. Managers need to keep their eyes glued to the security cams for expert gamblers and deal with them appropriately, but make sure to provide a decadent and thrilling experience for the guests that want to spend!

Publisher Aerosoft and developer stillalive studios will host an Open Public Playtest for Grand Casino Tycoon on Saturday, May 1, 2021 until Sunday, May 2, 2021, at 9:30 am Eastern.

The Open Playtest is a chance to chat with the developers about what works and what doesn’t, see how your house of cards stands up to the competition, and even win a branded and stylized Grand Casino Tycoon official poker set and carrying case! The Playtest will kick off with a Steam livestream including stillalive studios’ CEO Julian Mautner and Fabian Boulegue, Producer at Aerosoft. 

Sign up for Grand Casino Tycoon’s open playtest on Steam, download and play, and join the official Discord to chat with the devs in real-time, get community support, and share feedback with the tea

Aerosoft will also be raffling off several Grand Casino Tycoon Deluxe Kits that include a Grand Casino Tycoon branded case of poker chips, and a retail version of Grand Casino Tycoon — all players in the Open Playtest will automatically be entered into the drawing — all you have to do is sign up!
