The casino has hired you to find and return the money before the doors open the next day. Your fee will be $50 Million if you succeed. Hurry - you only have 16 hours to return the money back to the casino!

Investigate 25 intriguing Vegas locations to find over 2300 cleverly hidden objects. As your investigation skills improve your P.I. rank increases. Strive for a "Perfect Investigation" every time to earn bonus points.

Two addictive ways to play: In Vegas Heist mode you must find clues and piece the clues together to discover the location of the money and return it before the casino's grand opening. Unlock Unlimited Seek & Find game mode to search for every hidden object in every scene with no time limits. Collect all the hidden Keys and Poker Chips to unlock Unlimited Seek & Find mode.


Troubleshooting

This software has been tested to operate on the above system requirements. If you experience any problems such as system crashes, any graphics issues or error messages, please try one of the following:

1) Update your computer's video or sound card drivers. This can be done by identifying the type of sound card and video card your computer is using and finding the manufacturer's web site where new drivers may be made available for download.

2) Upgrade DirectX. This is a Microsoft component and can improve the graphics, security, and performance of your Windows operating system.

3) If 1 and 2 do not fix graphic problems please go to the "Options" menu available on the main menu and UNCHECK "Use Hardware Acceleration". If you change the "Use Hardware Acceleration" you need to close the game and launch it again for the new setting to begin.
