    >Probably console app if you're new to programming.

    Windows programming is somthing you can look into a bit down the road. I am fiddled with it, but I need more knowledge on C++ in general first. Like manutd said, use console app, it's perfect for what you need

    I don't see why the OP even needs to use a project. I never needed to use projects until I started writing SDL or multifile programs.

    I guess dwks, but then again the option is there is he wants to expand on it and add a header file for say a player class later on, but I do see your point

    ok this is what I got so far. i got in error when i get to please enter ur bet line. can you at least tell me if im on the right track?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstring>
    
    using namespace std; // So we can see cout and endl
    
    int main()
    {
      
        int bet;
        const double bankBalance = 40.00;
        bet <= bankBalance;
        
        cout<<"Welcome to Kevin's Casino\n";
        char name[50];
        cout<<"Please enter your name: ";
        cin.getline ( name, 50 );
        cout<<"You are starting with 40\n";
        cout<<"Please Enter your bet:";

    >cin.getline ( name, 50 );

    should be

    Code:
    getline( cin, name );
    If you plan to use C++, then use C++ strings instead of char arrays.

    Code:
    // declaration
    string name;
    To use rand you need to include these headers

    Code:
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <ctime> // for srand() and number generator seeding

    I assume you solved you're problem from three posts ago, but just in case, you're missing a closing bracket in main().

    For which you need to include <string>.
