No corruption messages after extended casino play
The game should notify of new corruptions after gambing is done

After the fixes of 105 and 731, playing in the casino now corrupts. However, no notice is given of any new corruption(s) after the PC stops playing.* This can lead to some nasty surprises for anyone who doesn't know to check their corruption status right away.

* -- It's possible that there's a message shown during the gambling itself, but let's be honest, everybody gambles by holding down the enter/space key, so no one will ever see that warning if it exists.

Make it a prompt where the Enter and Space keys have no effect, like Jharod's "shall I heal you?" or the greater white unicorn asking if you want to help her.

You feel corrupted. (more)
Your muscles suddenly stiffen slowing you down greatly. You start to absorb mana at an enourmous rate. You are suddenly emitting an unholy aura! Suddenly a poisonous fluid begins to drip from your hands!
Do you want to continue gambling? (y/n)

During normal play I most often miss corruption messages anyway and have to press '\' to review right after they pop by.

What makes anon's suggestion difficult is: one expects the game to accept 'space/enter/fast more' upon receiving your message.

:)

Because of my experience, maybe the prompt should be: 'Do you want to view your effects of corruption?[y/n]'

Only 'y/n' keybindings are accepted.

Yup. I checked into this to see just how much corruption you could get at the casino, and it's unlimited--you can actually die from corruption during a single turn if you're gambling. Now let's say you're going to risk it and you're holding down the space bar... "Game over."

Yeah, I think we need an automatic y/n thing for new corruptions, whether or not they occur at the casino. How often have you messed up your wands or potions because you got a new corruption and didn't notice?

Added 'Do you want to view your effects of corruption?[y/n]' prompt after you receive a new corruption.

Hello JT, I'd also like to suggest this to be possible to turn on and off with the ":=" command a lot like the 'Uncursed_String' or 'Auto_Pickup' or 'Metric_Measuring', For something like 'Check_Corruption_Status' or something alike..
