An area in a video game, particularly a {{platformer}} or RolePlayingGame, that is host to a number of minigames where the player can win items or cash, sometimes by [[BettingMiniGame betting money]] in a casino-like area.

* ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'':
** The pricing games ó six per episode (since 1975), although their selection in a given episode is always pre-determined. This is the bread-and-butter of the 1972 revival, with the games testing contestants on consumer knowledge (along with luck, physical skill and intuition). Prizes range from a couple of thousand dollars in merchandise to trips, cars and (depending on the game) $100,000 in cash.
** In between, the Showcase Showdown, where the three contestants spin the Big Wheel to determine who advances to the Showcases at the end of the show; highest score without exceeding $1.00 advances, but all previous winnings of each of the three contestants are safe. Achieving $1.00 in one or two spins earns a $1,000 bonus and an extra spin, which can be worth (depending on where the contestant lands) an extra $10,000 or $25,000 cash.

** The ''Dead Money'' DLC features the Sierra Madre which ''also'' features the same games as the normal casinos, [[spoiler: but run by entirely silent holograms in an eerily silent casino]]. The sheer incongruity lends an amazingly black comedy edge to the whole thing.
