Accessibility Suggestions

We’ve created a forum post asking the community for suggestions on how we can improve gameplay for players with certain conditions such as colorblindness, dyslexia, or anything else that might affect a players ability to use the standard presentation and controls of the game.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, and possible solutions on how to solve a particular issue, please check out the forum post here.

Can you make the pool tables shorter? My character is too short to see what’s going on when it’s not my turn.

I think equipping a potion helps. If not, I am pretty sure you can stand on the side of the pool table.

omg bingo nice

Who’s Keno?

I’m still confused about the new layout of the Casino. Is the Bingo Hall above the card game room? Is there a use for the star room yet (I think it’d be nice as a mood-lit lounge area)?

keno is a game that’s usually played in casinos, im not familiar with it but there’s a wikipedia article explaining it. it’s gonna be included in casino phase 2

Expanding on the above post, it’s like a cross between Bingo and a Lotto. it’s a game where you pick a subset of a set of numbers (normally 20 out of 80) and then another 20 are randomly drawn. The more numbers of your picked subset match those of the randomised one, the more you get paid.
