    It’s a mix. All ~24 Terminals can play any of the following. Shoe dealt blackjack. Video blackjack. Bubble craps. Shoe dealt baccarat (?). Video baccarat. Traditional roulette. Video roulette. Depending on game....minimums vary. From $1 and up.
    LOL...What!!??

    Not even close.

    Aruze craps location is currently occupied by slots and video poker. The stadium style set up was utilized by eliminating some tables and slots to fill a fairly substantial area. In addition there are individual craps machines (4) set up in another area.
    Good idea.....what’s that saying, “best to remain quiet and thought the fool rather than speak and.....”
    Well...#1, illegal. #2, dumbest move ever. #3, felony, loss of license, loss of reputation. #4...simply not true.

    Then again, why let common sense enter the picture, right?

    While I haven’t been to all of them....my guess is based on what I’ve seen at Red Rock and Sunset....there is some type of stadium set up at all their currently opened properties.

    Red Rock
    GVR
    Sunset
    Palace
    Boulder
    Santa Fe

    closed properties...
    Palms
    Texas
    Fiesta Rancho
    Fiesta Henderson

    Wow, done up like a kipper, that sounds so "Australian". Almost like finding ones self, in a "sand snare". :D

    I do not know how any legal problems are remedied, but they are. I'm not the only one that believes it's not random. This game is shunned, by most serious craps players, and for the same reason I shun it. The results are contrived, pure and simple, and apparently, it's done "legally". :cool:

    I knew you were going to recycle that old story. So predictable.

    Have you heard any rumblings about what might happen to the Rio, Palms area? Both were closed when we were there. Gold Coast I think was open and Orleans were open. Orleans was the only one we went into. It was busy for a Sunday morning.

    I noticed they built a small strip mall next to Palms. Probably not good timing on that one. Also, they're finally extending Valley View to connect to Harman. That will make driving in that area much easier once it's finished.

    I have no idea. The last word on Palms was they said they don’t know when or if it will open. Strange. “If” means it could stay shuttered forever. Why not just say it’s for sale then? There is no other option.

    Last I heard on the Rio was they were currently using it for Caesars employees who tested positive for covid. Also strange.
    I don’t go down that way too often. The Palms area went downhill. It’s probably worse now. Palms also removed the giant dome structure from the enclosed pool/club area and also took out the $15 million sculpture. Rumor has it that it sits in Frank Fertittas backyard.

    Let me get this straight. You believe the electronic version of craps is fixed by the machine putting an “asymmetric force” on the dice which eliminates “spinners” but influences the dice result to cheat the player. Is that right?

    I want to try out one of those solo bubble machines.

    I will turn my $300 buy in into $1000 or $0 in about 10 minutes.

    Go get em.

    I’ll tell ya from years of bubble experience...like a table, if you catch a hot run, the money will pile up fast. And, they DO happen.

    I’ve seen enormous stretches of great bubble rolls. Seemingly can’t go wrong.

    Obviously, I’ve also seen....
    6-7
    9-7
    2-3-4-7
    8-7
    10-7

    It’s craps. Table or bubble, you can make money.

    No, Aruze bubble, and throw to win. The regular table game, produces almost no spinners anymore either. Eliminating spinners is not their intent, but rather, is a consequence, of some other action. To me, it is a "smoking gun".

    The 4 'Vegas style' casinos in New York are still not open. Cuomo don't want to risk his good Covid numbers with a bunch of drunk gamblers. None of the 'racinos' are open either. Only the Indian run casinos upstate are open. I have not heard any reports from them?

    No, seriously, the casinos have gone ahead with elaborate cleaning and safety protocols, but the governor has not even hinted at re-opening. I thought I heard the casinos want him to visit so he can see the new protocols first hand, and then authorize the re-opening. We're going on 5 months of closure, are any of the dealers still around?

    I'm surprised if they haven't looked into installing some electronic table games (ETG). As stated here many times, they're cheaper to run, and in the pandemic age they seem to be a safer alternative to the traditional tables.

    A big 'Stadium seating' arrangement for multiple games would be excellent.

    It's just the microfiber, and the hard table surface on the electronic game. To get a spinner you have to have enough resistance on one of the points to convert the forward motion into a rotational motion. Old fashioned felt is the easiest surface for this to happen on.

    On the roll to win game it would be tough to create a spinner even if they let you set a die on the table, hold the opposite point with your finger and try to spin it like a top. The most likely result would be the point on the table surface would would kick out sideways because of lack of resistance to hold it in place.

    Cuomo is under a lot of pressure now with people questioning his mandate to send sick seniors back into nursing homes knowing it would kill off 1000s of people
    no one questions his reasons, especially since he had 1000s of beds laying empty in the naval ship and the javits converted to a hospital for covid patients.
    He could have corralled all the sick patients into javits or on the ship, and 10 thousand seniors in assisted living facilities might still be around today.
    hes not going to take a chance and open up the dozen of racinos or casinos in the state.
    I don't think the dealers suffered too much, they got that extra 600 a week until a few weeks ago.
    Im disgusted college football might not happen.

    Horseshit. The dice get the spin, from contacting a pyramid point, or some other "edge", just right when they are thrown. The harder the better. Once spinning, the less resistance the surface has the better, just as a top, will perform best on a hard surface.
    I've examined the table surfaces very carefully, and I've found nothing in itself, that would prevent spinners. I've also never heard another player, mention anything about the missing spinners. It's as if everybody else, is completely oblivious, to their absence. I've been aware of this anomaly for at least 10 years, and I can come up with only ONE plausible answer, to explain it. "THERE IS SOME ASYMMETRIC FORCE, ACTING ON THE DICE" that's it, but I don't know what, that force is.
    It's difficult to say how many spinners one should see in a day at the table, perhaps 5 or 6, but in any case, I'll guarantee you, it's a hell of a lot more than NONE, or one a month. :cool:

    Well apparently the other players didn't see enough, hence the removal of the Aruze machines, from your favorite casino. :confused: This action was foretold, in the prophecies of "Von duck" aka. "Nostraduckus".

    Post a photo of this stadium game, especially, the bubble craps part of it.

    If you have a couple dice and a countertop or similar hard surface try it at home. In such a controlled environment and your skill you should get a spinner almost every toss if you're correct.
