OriginEdit

Originally a Dallas gangster, Benny Binion took his cowboy lifestyle to running a casino empire (and away from the police). As a Vegas newcomer, he saw stagnation in the industry and believed he could do better.

In Sin City, the Horseshoe kept the patrons coming. They adored the professional atmosphere instead of the seedy haunts lining the rest of the strip. Free food, drinks and limo rides for all players, polished facilities and the highest bet limits of the time were too enticing to pass. He even drummed up spectators by flaunting a million dollars in $10,00 bills behind a horseshoe display.

Trying to balance out his many trials, payouts and other illicit crimes with some decent press, Binion hatched an idea. After assembling a match between pro gamblers Nick Moss and Nick “The Greek” Dandolos, Binion started a poker tournament for all the high-rollers to compete for a cash prize. Years later, the World Series of Poker has now become an event where thousands compete for the chance to be champion.

EffectsEdit

Proudly displaying it for all to gawk in amazement will trigger the effects. The owner, now regarding themselves as the “host”, will do everything in their power to ensure only the finest experience for their “guests”. Staple supplies become high quality in every regard, turning the broken down coffee machine into a gourmet espresso station and uncomfortable wooden furniture into crushed velour masterpieces. The user will also be subconsciously aware of any recurring complaints and will try to fix them immediately.

All this glamour however is only reserved for friends and honored patrons. Troublemakers and competitors will instead find their savings slowly draining away, while they try to avoid the sudden uptake in random crimes and violence directed towards them.
