Looking for a thimblerig / shell game on A500

Hi, hopefully this post is not to stupid to ask.

I really had/have a special connection to the A500, remembering playing the
first games - and the grapics were so cool compared to the C64
(which still has a special place in my heart, *great memories*).

Im searching for a game which could be on a disk with other games.
I think it was called Midnight Gambler, featuring digitized graphics. A guy
would play a thimblerig or shell game with the player, the cones rotating.
This was the first time I really saw good digizied graphics on
an computer.

Ive tried many sites, but unfortunately I couldnt find it.

Maybe some of you can point into any useful direcion,
as I would like to see it again (ahh nostalgia ).

Many Thanks,

CBMretrofan

It could be that this game was/is public domain. I think the disk contained
other stuff aswell.
I googled everything imaginable, but no results so far.


Any idea somebody please ?

Just a pure guess and probably not the game you're after but... it's not Vegas Gambler is it?

..sadly no. I still remember that "guy" which looked like
digitized from a photograph and you could move the cones
around via a joystick. And it was only that thimblerig game.
Mhm I still think it was a PD game but maybe not, Ill have
a detailed look at the hol database, thanks.
