SCP-7616, post-repairs.

Special Containment Procedures:1 SCP-7616 and SCP-7616-# are to be contained in Site-88. SCP-7616 is to be investigated for anomalous properties, and its Hume level monitored for spikes in activity.

Reconstruction of SCP-7616 is currently underway, so as to obtain a better understanding of its nature.

Description: SCP-7616 is a formerly damaged American sternwheel steamboat commissioned by one “Adrian"2 in 1921. The object was used for commercial river cruises along the Mississippi River, and as a cover for illegal activities such as gambling and moonshine production/distribution.

The many relevant objects found within the vessel are referred to as SCP-7616-#, and include decks of standard playing cards, dice, roulette tables, slot machines, and eight deceased humans. SCP-7616-# gaming equipment only manifest anomalous properties within SCP-7616. Any players who participate in a game of chance have a 100% success rate. When SCP-7616-1, or Adrian's corpse, is treated as a “player” of a game within SCP-7616, SCP-7616-1 and Adrian, the living Tartarean entity employed as Foundation Thaumiel-Agent Primrose Fatish Von Trevil's familiar, loses 100% of games in all tests.

All results of chance-based elements of any game played within SCP-7616 are decided in the players favor. Should the odds of a win-condition be impossible, the circumstances of that game will shift to allow a player win. Skill-based factors of games played within SCP-7616 are unaffected, as well as games where the opponent is another player, excluding the "House."

SCP-7616 acts as a siphon and amplifier for Faustian-Sacramental Energy3 for any activities that occur within it. The vessel's internal Hume level of 10██~ is from an overabundance of siphoned FSE, and is not reflective of the object itself. SCP-7616-# objects have been proven to be non-anomalous, and SCP-7616 merely reacts to games of chance being played within it. SCP-7616-# corpses are thought to be non-anomalous and have been buried, save for SCP-7616-1.

Addendum: SCP-7616 was found in the bottom of the Mississippi River, near Port Sulphur, its destruction caused by an explosion to its engine. Civilians aboard SCP-7616 at the time of its malfunction have been safely evacuated, the only casualties appearing to be Adrian, and 7 confirmed members of the New Orleans Crime Family.
