Caesars Palace is a casino/gambling game released for the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Game Gear exclusively in North America. The Mega Drive version was developed by Illusions Gaming Company while the Game Gear version was converted by Teeny Weeny Games.

Gameplay

The game starts off at an ATM where the player can either continue with a password or start a new account which will allow the player to enter an 8-character name. The game involves the player controlling a man (supposedly themselves) around Caesars Palace as they can go to different games and play them. The games include Blackjack, Red Dog, Slot Machines, Horse Racing, Video Poker, and Roulette. The player can also buy scratch tickets from the ATM.

Unlike the SNES versions, the player cannot interact with people in the casino. It was probably removed due to the people in the SNES version giving unhelpful advice. When the player is finished playing, they may obtain a 16-character password consisting only of letters and numbers.
