I have a couple quick questions with the program that I am doing. This program is a hi\lo program and here are my remaining issues...

1. When I click the high or low button in my program it does not make changes to my token (I want the default tokens to be 100 and added 100 to the text property of my textbox so want to make sure I did that right)

2. In my program it only shows 13 possibilities but want to have the ability to add more

3. I also would like to change 1 to ace, 11 to jack, 12 to queen, and 13 to king and would like to get some assistance with that as well

I think I have everything else taken care of but this is the code I have...

I changed a couple of things.

You need 3 Buttons: btnHi, btnLow, btnPlayAgain.
2 Labels: lblTokens, lblCardShown
1 TextBox: txtBet

See if this will work for you.

Private Sub cardCheckButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

should have a handles clause on it:
Handles btnHi.click, btnLow.click

Just like the 1 I posted.

It looks like you changed the btnlow to lowbutton and I'm assuming you changed the btnHigh to high button.

Private Sub cardCheckButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles lowbutton.click, highbutton.click
