50/50:  this is were to pirates will put up an equal amount of money where the winner of the game will take all of the money -10% for the house. You can start your own match or match an existing bet to try and take another player down.

Higher or lower: higher or lower is a fairly easy game where you will just have to bet whether the next card will be higher or lower than the current card. This is a quick way that you can win a lot of money in the game, but it is important to remember that the cards are random.


Slot machines: a typical slot machine where the maximum amount of your bet is determined by your level. You can work to bet higher amounts as you level up through the game which can allow you to earn massive amounts of money when you reach higher levels.

If you are interested in taking on quests you will have to go to the downtown area in order to search through the job center to take on new jobs.
