The only real value to this card (other than some great flavor text) is in two very specific circumstances:
- You're playing someone like Ken "Express" Tenma: Disappeared Clone, and have no events that aren't run events except Sure Gamble or
- You have 3 Prepaid VoicePAD in your deck, and just don't feel like you're getting enough free credits.
Compared to Prepaid VoicePAD, which is the most direct comparison, you save 1 credit in install, but lose the ability to play any events that aren't runs. If your econ package is made up of Sure Gamble, Dirty Laundry, Desperado and Security Testing, which is entirely possible in criminal, you may benefit from the 1 credit discount on install (although even that is countered by the potential extra credit you're spending on Sure Gamble). But in 99% of the cases, Prepaid VoicePAD is a mechanically better choice.
