Although there's not much info that we don't already know, the Field Trial generated an article in CDC Gaming Reports:

Congrats!
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Heads up even at $10 a hand VS a slow/bad player could be fairly valuable. I can imagine someone sitting there waiting for a sucker to sit down.

What, think you could best me in this version of poker too? Right this way to my table Mr. Axel ;-).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Is the electronic version the same rules as the table game version, just limited to four players?

Same rake?
Same draw card competition?
Same "can't win" player lockout rule?
Same burndown?
Etc....?

I received an email from Total Rewards about "Las Vegas’ First Interactive Video Gaming Experience". Along with basic description and photos is a link to their blog post that has more description, more photos and a video.

Quote:

The games are in the trial phase now but once they earn regulatory approval look for them at Caesars Palace, The LINQ Hotel & Casino and Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. Harrah’s Resort Southern California will be the first to debut them in California. Eventually there will be 200 of these tables throughout Caesars Entertainment properties in the United States.








YouTube suggested this video next

From what I could tell in this game each player starts with two random cards and then you all begin drawing until someone makes a 5 card hand. This triggers the "burndown" and has the "can't win" locking rule.
Views are my own...

I don't make a thread for every new game I see at the Cutting Edge show, but this one merits an exception.



After the election, I'm in no position to make predictions, but I think this game could be huge. At the show it generated a lot of energy and there was never a shortage of players. I found it very fun, social, and engaging.

A drawback is that there is a fixed bet size for the main wager and it does take 2-3 minutes between rounds. At low Antes, if I can call the primary wager that, it may not pull in much money per hour. At high Antes it could attract ringers who sit there all day and win almost every time, discouraging recreational players. Of course, you could argue that has somewhat happened with poker in general and it still is a fundamental part of any big casino. Even if it doesn't pull in its weight in revenue per square foot per hour, it generates an energy, which will be good for the whole floor. I'm sure the Derby game at the MGM doesn't pull in much per hour and is a big space hog, but it is still good business, I would argue, to keep it around.

I'm happy to say I won a couple bets on whether it would win/show for best game at the show. It did.

The question for the forum is what do you think will become of Gamblit Poker? Vote for all you agree with.


I have both flash and java turned off in IE so all I see if a blank box.

the 1st thing that came to mind from the video is why do you even need a human dealer?
why cant this be all electronic?

The video depicts the live table game version. That is different from the game that went live in Vegas, which is fully electronic and a five card game versus the three card live game in the video from Cutting Edge...

uuggg...

Wiz, can you mention in your OP that there are TWO versions of this game (live dealer and all electronic)?

waiting for write up/video of the electronic version...

edit:
Gamblit gaming released a trailer 4days ago for their e-Glamblit poker game.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfcr3aXAFao

warning- I thought it was corny and did NOT help me in any way know much about the game.

edit2:
better video on how e-Gamblit poker is played from cbs news:
