How much is everyone betting?

In time spent in the casino, after the first half hour, Rojo draws the attention of three attractive strangers that offer for him to come sit with them, if he is "Interested in improving interplanetary relations." Their words.

Meanwhile, another half hour later, as Zhenya is playing roulette, she is accosted by a reasonably attractive individual, who asks if she is lonely, and seems to offer little more than to laugh and talk.

(8+)

Zhenya likes the randomness of the Roulette wheel, but still approaches with a scheme. Start out with the James Bond strategy, then either switch to a Fibonacci or change tables. The initial betting spread is 200cr

Being in a real casino again is quite exhilarating, and Zhenya is paying little attention to other things, so the stranger's approach is surprising and the initial reaction ( based on recent events ) frosty. Nonetheless, good manners demand a polite response.

"Lonely? I have my crew with me. But, if you need company, perhaps you could join us."

Play along, work out if this is a threat, an opportunity or just a demimondaine.

Elton seems to be enjoying himself:

Zhenya wins at 17 to 1, putting her total winnings at 3,400; the individual there she has attracted to her side, she can figure is probably a host, someone hired by the casino to keep people gambling, esp if they are winning. "And here I am all by my lonesome." He replies to her statement of being with her crew (not that that statement sounds gangster-ish or anything), he orders another drink too, "Want anything?"

Ah, a professional companion. No harm in enjoying his company, but no reason to trust him either.

"Poor boy, alone in a crowd. You must join us then." * Zhenya was using an arch tone, amused and performative, but switches to a friendly, conversational one * "Another champagne would be nice, to start with."

Zhenya looks to the others: "XO, Strelok?, shall we maintain position around this table or cruise over to another system before our orbit decays?"

Calson set himself a Cr:1000 limit, betting up to Cr100 a pop and after an hour of losing has put a sizable dent in it. To Zhenya "Sure, think i've almost lost enough here".

Am I that obvious?
He smiles at the strangers' comely offer, but nods towards his new associates to indicate his obligations lie elsewhere.
"A worthy ambition and I wish you well.
As for me and my house...
we will wait for the nickel slots."

Rojo raises his glass towards the trio as a gesture of gratitude as well as an indication that they are under no obligation to keep barking up this particular tree.
Keep calm and troll on, trolls.

Elton roll 2d6 again (8+).

Elton is gambling moderately, as much as he likes to win, breaking even all night is much less stressful. Especially when the company is interesting.

More cheerful than earlier...

Elton is doing better than breaking even, winning 1,100Cr for his trouble.

Theta surreptitiously puts a cred in a slot and luckily hits the jackpot, winning a 100Cr more; also roll his int or lower on 2d6.

Rojo is there by the slots watching Theta win. The strangers are sad that their affections have been rebuffed, so they turn them to others in the casino.

Calson seems to have absorbed the bad luck this evening, losing all but the last 100Cr of his chips.

Zhenya is the biggest winner, and as she scans the tables for other easy marks, the woman in black smiles, turns to her partner (a younger man, probably an associate and not date) to say something, and they leave together. Zhenya's companion, sees a certain weariness, and asks if she is going to leave so soon? It has been a long day, and everyone has been in the casino no for over two hours.

Zhenya's companion, sees a certain weariness, and asks if she is going to leave so soon? It has been a long day, and everyone has been in the casino no for over two hours.
Zhenya notes the woman in black, interest piqued, and asks the companion "Is that one of the regulars? I have a feeling I know her from somewhere, but I cannot put my finger on it exactly. A celebrity perhaps? Or perhaps from another casino?"

"No reflection on your delightful company, darling boy, but it has been a long week, and I owe myself some sleep. I am sure we will meet again, after all we are staying for a week or two, and there are other games to be played." * politely stifled yawn * "You seem to have brought me luck tonight, perhaps you will have some of your own." - Zhenya palms him a 50cr chip.

Zhenya would like to follow the mysterious woman and her companion, but is not going to rush into another trap quite so soon... :D
