My problem is in the guessing method, I am not sure if the way I set up playing the game again works, (don't know if entering yes will work) and I'm not sure on how to call the main method to play again, and also I'm suppose to give the user double their bet if they guess the number in half the tries (so if they ask for 4 guesses and guess the number in 2 tries their bet is doubled and is added to their amount), so I multiply bet by 2, but for some reason it doesn't get multiplied by 2, it just prints out the same amount. Extra stuff: user gets minus 10 for each guess,typing 0 ends the game, and I know I print out the number they have to guess in the beginning, just their to make sure guessing high or low works. Any help is appreciated, and sorry if my coding is bad, or it's not set up well enough, only a month into java so don't be to hard on me :)

What you have to do is put the content in the main method in a do while loop. Define an other variable to hold the users decision. You also have to move the user input code lines in to the do while loop.

``````public static void main(String[] args)
{
int RandomNumber;
int number = 0;
int useramount = 500;
int bet = 0;
int guessamount = 0;
int Guessing;
int guess = 0;

// New Variable
boolean playAgain = false;

do
{
// Rest of the code in the main method

// Asking the user's choice on playing again
System.out.println("Do you want to play again? (Yes/No)");
String playagain = Input2.next();
if(playagain == "Yes")
{
playAgain = true;
}
if (playagain == "No")
{
playAgain = false;
System.out.println("Thank you for playing, you ended up with," + useramount);
}
}
while(playAgain);
}``````
