Game Mechanics – A Day At The Races

Game Mechanics has created a new casino style game for your apartment or club. It is called A Day At The Races. Five jockey mounted ponies go around an oval track and you bet on which two are going to finish first and second (order does not matter). You get 300 coins when you purchase the machine and get an additional 20 coins every day you check in with the game. Your friends can come by and play it even if they don’t own it. The first time they play they get 20 coins and 5 per day after. Owners get a better deal because ownership has its privileges. There are 10 Rewards you and your friends can earn by completing achievements. You can bet up to 20 coins per race on any combination of horses and the odds go from 2 for 1 to 200 for 1. Another cool feature is that if you own the table and play at it, you can go to a friend’s apartment, play on theirs and all your stats and coins come with you. You can even start a streak on your machine and complete it on their machine, or even on a machine in a club. Coins are available in the store for those who run out. Up to 12 players can play on a machine at once and it uses 14 furniture slots.

Thanks

This is very cool. It’s nice that you are giving us some legitimate reasons for using Home other than “virtual playground to socialize and waste time”. :)

I’d use Home more if it were a seamless experience with more launch links in various spots rather than “application” I have to purposefully go into.

you know that is a GREAT QUESTION? WILL PS HOME BE ON THE PS4, or will it strictly remain on the PS3?

I love HOME since day 1 Private/Closed Beta. Its come light years from what it once was. But I, along with millions of others wanna know if HOME can be accessed via the PS4? I would hope so. Too have to turn on the PS3 JUST for HOME, seems kinda inane! And I agree with the VITA owners, you gotta get HOME to the VITA.

Will the ps plus trial add on to my 1 year i bought or do you have to be new? Also how long would it take to complete all of it for the last of us theme? I bought a dynamic theme on the store and pre-ordered it for another dynamic theme. Is the one we earn in home the same as one of those??

Yes. I was wondering if it would start downloading the theme automatically, but it’s just to reserve it. Starting the 11th we can get all of the stuff by visiting the virtual booth.

I downloaded the PSHome app but I dont see any E3 Booth, only some stores and Pottermore. Even the teleporter doesnt show anything E3 related …

So confused and lost …


82

+ DiscoJer on June 5th, 2013 at 6:15 pm said:

So let me get this straight, in order to get stuff for the Vita, you need to own a PS3?

This is why the Vita is failing so badly, Sony doesn’t consider it its own device, but simply an accessory to their consoles.

Also hope PS Home is on PS4, I wish you guys will just tell us already.

PS Home would have been more effective for those that spend most of there time gaming if they had a option to start up the system in Home where the hub has those on your friends list active. Which would promote communication, conversation, and resolve crossgame chat to an degree with private chat in the hub which is a step up from chat on xmb. What do you think will be the next iteration of Home?

+ The_Dukenator on June 5th, 2013 at 9:32 pm said:

About 3 weeks ago Radio Stations started disappearing from the LOOT Radio Bundle package . Here is a list and the big difference between the Radio Bundle and the EOD TV (space apartment , Hollywood Hills Daytime , night time …etc )
Radio Bundle list : Featured, Rock, Pop, Classical & Jazz, Electric Specialty, Acoustic, Country, Christian, Talk .
EOD TV LIST : Featured channels , Rock Channels, All Music Channels, Pop Channels, Electronic and Dance, Electric Specialty, Acoustic Channels, Country , Christian, Classical & Jazz , Talk
compare the 2 and it is easy to see that the Radio Bundle music stations are missing a lot of its content from when we first got them . I can NOT throw a party listening to 80`s pop . I talked to Radio IO and they said its a SONY problem, so here I am to ask you, to PLEASE let SONY know of this problem , Missing Radio stations from the Radio Bundle for more than 3 weeks . We need and want our Radio stations Back .
