Been mentioned a few times around here that the name is "sweat joint" Think it was Ahigh who had tee shirts made up to wear there.
South point has the second-worst game run in Vegas. First worst is the Wynn, who decided to follow suit of the South Point after a earnings conference call where Steve Wynn pontificated as if he had been running casinos in Vegas longer than anyone else and knew what best to do.
Ask his craps dealers how the tokes went after his policies. Not exactly creating "stories" of the pleasant variety, huh, Steve?
We need a new "sweat joint" shirt starting with a Wynn Nike Golf shirt.
The Cromwell offers 100x odds, BTW, and last time I was in Vegas, that's the ONLY place for a REAL gambler to play. The second day the Cromwell was open, I suggested that they do 100x odds, but I never expected that they would.
I also make claim to the idea to offer free buys on the four and ten that were adopted after I suggested the idea to Jim Simms when he was at the Downtown Grand. Nobody except Jim Simms, apparently, knows that it was my suggestion to do the free buys, but that idea definitely came from me.
One day I might meet Steve Wynn. I still have a tremendous amount of respect for the man, but I think his move to double odds was "watch the right hand" (Las Vegas doing good) while the left hand was covering up the abysmal performance of Macau Baccarat revenue. They've lost half their market cap since the peak on their ticker if I have my information right (about ten billion).
DO NOT PATRONIZE PLACES THAT TREAT THEIR CUSTOMERS TERRIBLY.
That is, unless, of course, you wish to fling it right back at them (how they treat you like an inferior and/or idiot for trying to set the dice, then go a step further to pretend that it worries them).
For some, the idea that (or attention relating to) the house sweating the money is an entertaining component to the game. If you don't believe me, go and watch some people taunting the box-man as they make prop bets, grunt on release, and snap their fingers when the dice hit the table claiming they are hurting the casino.
You just don't want to play with these type of people or in this type of casino. Not ever, really, unless you just like the entertainment of the fantasy of it all and don't mind letting them take your money faster.
