Question on using a while loop?

3 views (last 30 days)
I have attached my script. I need to Add in code to keep track of the user’s total amount of money (balance), and Display the current balance to the user during each round of play. And At the end of each round, the user should be asked if he/she wants to play again. The games should only continue as long as the user wants to play again and the user still has money left. Im confused on how to keep track of the total balance throughout the game and getting the game to continue on. Would I use a menu statement inside a while loop?

wants_to_continue = true;
while wants_to_continue
your existing code
user_choice = input('Do you want to continue? (y/N)', 's');
wants_to_continue = strcmpi(user_choice, 'Y');

To add the bet from the total, use:
Bank = Bank + Bet;
Subtraction will be similar, using "-" of course.
To get your program to loop, you could pop up a menu asking if they want to play again. Your while statement would look something like:
while Bank > 0 && play_again
Where "play_again" is a variable you create to capture the result of the next menu.
