I disagree. The new GameCo Inc games people are just looking at and not even playing or playing literally 1 round and leaving. If people are playing actual sessions of Gamblit poker that is a lot better then where they could actually be at. Doesn't mean any long term success but its still good news.
Assume the worst, believe no one, and make your move only when you are certain that you are unbeatable or have, at worst, exceptionally good odds in your favor.

We went by to see the games last weekend. My friends joined the Poker version with two others that were playing while we were there. The game was $2 per hand (min) and I didn't see how you up the bet. If you have money in the game, it waits until you join the hand or cash out. Didn't see any way to sit out a hand. Once all players are in, there is a spinner that lands on the amount for the pot. For four players the spinner had amounts ranging from $4.80 to $240, most pots were $7 to $15. It is in this way they obscure the rake which we have heard is 10% but it operates more like a 90% payout over time. The game plays very fast, each card is available for less than two seconds making it very difficult to read anyone else's hand. It plays five card hands and the burndown starts the same, after one full hand is made. We did not observe any lockout as previously mentioned.
Personal observations. The table and stools are counter height however the game sits another 5 inches higher which seemed a bit uncomfortable and could give a poor angle for screen viewing.
The action for the table version of the game had a large tactile button. This version uses an onscreen button which worked for most but one player was tapping beyond the button in the area where the hand is displayed. I feel you should be able to tap the "felt" area and it should be an easy fix if they recognize it.
Cocktail servers will need to recognize the demands of the game and allow time for hands to finish.

Reply> The winner of the hand will collect more than they wagered.
Don't forget, "FREE" is a four letter word.

Is there a working card reader?

People are betting different amounts? If so, how does that work?

MGM Grand went live last week with two units in their Level Up area. From what I can tell neither MGM or PH has functional card readers but slot attendants tell me that Gamblit is working to fix this asap.

Everyone at the table must bet the same amount. The MGM units are $2 denom and Planet Hollywood has a $2 and $5 denom.

Play of the hand takes ~30-60 seconds depending on how long it takes for the first player to get to a pat hand. ~30 more seconds of graphics and bet selection in between rounds.

Game was sited on the Ruby Princess cruise ship last week. Same 4 player all digital version of the game. Located in the casino bar adjacent to casino, they likely removed a high top bar table to create the space. Gamblit employee/rep onboard all week attempting to explain/schill the game to passengers on the three separate sea days fo the voyage. Not a lot of action, but the ship does seem like the perfect spot for a novelty game machine like this.

I spent most of my time at the Poker Pro automated 1-2NL game...boy was that game soft and as Romes/PG know, if I am feeling like I have a winning game at a NL table, real poker players would clean up. But you have to endure game pace of 22 HPH in a poker game...talk about slow.
