    Just visited the same Indian Casino again, things looked a bit different!

    Two Regular CRAPS tables both had the limited spaces (6) under COVID-19 full with payers, @ $15 minimum.

    The 8 Seater had TWO Players, while all 4 of the Individual Electronic CRAPS tables were EMPTY, ZERO Players!!!

    Guess that COVID-19 has not directed the folks towards the Single Seat Electronic CRAPS Tables, that's GOOD!

    What COVID-19 will likely do, however is end $5 CRAPS Table Play in the few places it was still available.

    Probably a Canadien company called UnoButt LLC. I bought 100 shares. It’s gonna be big! Are you listening TDV?

    We’ve been over this before. Electronic versions of table games run hot and cold. Some places do well with them and others fail to catch on. It’s the nature of the clientele. So, you get installed, taken out, try again, different version, etc....until they find a niche.

    There are no definitives.

    What I will suggest is that casinos worldwide will continue to look for variations of table games that REDUCE employees. An employee is a businesses greatest expense....and sadly, the times we are in have them on the front line when cost cutting is warranted.

    Station Casinos went from pulling every shoot to win craps game to now having multiple electronic versions of craps...not to mention huge stadium style set ups for blackjack, baccarat, roulette and craps.

    Wave of the future. Sadly, a traditional craps table is a complete dinosaur in the 2020 business model. Not necessarily going anywhere soon...but ya never know what the future holds.

    The new floor....2020 and beyond.

    The electronic versions of craps won't "fly". Their best chance at reducing dealers is the roll to win game. "Real" Opaque dice, one dealer, ten playing screens. My gut feeling playing this thing, is that the rolls are not completely random. It would be almost impossible to prove anything, and I don't know how any "control" would be imparted to the dice, but I think their is some control, by the machine. One of the telltale signs, is the lack of "spinners" even though the table surface, is hard plexiglass. I've even tried throwing the dice into the hook to get a lot of spin on them, and could not produce even one "spinner", not even one? :confused: The only plausible explanation, would be some asymmetric force, acting on the dice. I was watching some ethnics on one of theses tables a while back, and they were putting a lot of "shit" on the dice, and yet, no "spinners" to be seen. :cool:

    It’s a small, tiny percentage of people whose paranoia of being “cheated” persuades them to opt out of gaming.

    Granted....there is a larger percentage who simply say “I’m being cheated”....but those people truly don’t really believe that. It’s just a crutch of blame not rooted in reality. Makes them feel better. I see that a lot. They probably don’t understand gaming is for entertainment....not profit. At least long term.

    There’s also a term for people who truly feel they are being cheated in gaming, feel or say a game or slot is rigged...and then are back on the game the next day...next week....

    Its called degenerate gambler. No other term applies.

    I think the "play" that some games get, is pretty indicative.:confused:

    One would think that would be TRUE, but sometimes Casino's are not satisfied with their inherent advantage.

    Just as Theoretical Pay-Outs on Slots run from 80% to 98%, on the exact same SLOT, some Casino's will at times CHEAT!

    This can be accomplished through Slight of Hand by Card Dealers, to shutting down Slots Paying Out to Biased Dice @ CRAPS Tables!

    You do not have to agree with me; but I have seen all of the above in actual Casino's!!!

    Keep your eyes & mind open when wagering your money @ every Casino you play at!

    The duck still rides a mule because the horseless carriage is just a fad that will never catch on.

    Stations pulled all of their "horseless carriages", but they kept the mules. Let's see if we can figure out why. It could be because nobody was putting any money in the "horseless carriages". Duh? Maybe.

    Can't speak for all Station casinos but Red Rock took out the 8 seat Azure and replaced it with 4 single seat Interblocks and a Stadium game that has at least 24 seats, probably more. I didn't bother to count.

    That's a triple + increase in seating.

    Try to keep up.

    What game is the 24 seat stadium fixture playing? :confused: Does the stadium game fit in the same space that was occupied by the bubble? If not, what does it have to do with anything.
    I've never played the interblock machines, so I don't have an opinion about them. I have played the Aruze machines, which to me, appears to have contrived results. :cool: The increase using the numbers you provided, would not be 300%+, it would be a 250% increase. Judging by your math, I'd say you and TD are very closely related, brothers perhaps? :)

    Man, you are stupid. It’s the French spelling, as in Montreal Canadiens.
    Stop trying to look “smart”. You’re not.
