Disclaimer- I had fun playing the game at the show. So it is definitely fun. But as far as a practicality opinion, see below.

1) The revenue issue was one of the big concerns, that you already expressed. On top of the lack of revenue generation, the game can not be cheap to lease (two digital displays, a card reading shoe, a custom table and I'm assuming regular maintenance/testing). Therefore, it will be a minimal profit issue with a capped win, IMO (this is why many poker rooms are slimming or disappearing quickly).



The digital displays are at a dime a dozen, but I'm curious about typical cost for a card reading shoe and a custom table. What is the typical cost for a card reading shoe and a custom table?

Apparently, someone has a much higher opinion of this than we do. And/or they haven't read our comments.

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.

I think you need to pick a day and approximate time for some dinner and then see who's up for checking it out after. I will contact a few people once I have the day and time for dinner. I'm sure I can get a few unless this is a busy weekend for everyone.



To just say anything -- Saturday night. Maybe combine it with Top Golf, which has good affordable food.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

The thing about table games is it's you vs casino, no?



Negative good sir. The table game version is the same as the digital in regard to the family pot aspect. However, the physical table is there card poker vs the digital five card.

They both are family pot games. In the digital the game acts as a slot where a random prize is awarded, the physical table is strictly limited to the family pot table minimum vague with the option of a side wager vs the house.

Based on some of the other comments, it's seems many still don't realize there are two separate gamblit poker games (digital as seen in the video I posted and the physical table version as seen in Mike's video from the table games show in the OP)

Edit: If I didn't understand that quoted question properly and you were just asking about table games generally.... There are a few games that had family pots wagers, in addition to the main player vs casino base game. Right now Flop poker (which has been around for a long time) has a family pot wager and my original version of Money$uit 31 used to have one also. In Canada, players DID NOT LIKE playing against the other players at the table at all. I actually got yelled at by one of the player's for that...

I would ntomally agree about the displays being cheap, if they were normal stand alone displays. Here however, the displays are linked to the card reading shoe and the table/buttons... The fact they these are the only display that show players the next card coming out, places these in a category of their own, in my opinion, that should require heavy scruitiny. What happens if the display on the left shows the card a split second earlier then the one on the right etc....?

Top Golf, cold beer, food and Gamblit poker is a tall order on such short notice. Not even sure if I'm allowed to have so much excitement in one night.

Warm beer and lousy food works better for me, but beggars cant be choosers. Get enough drunk with golf clubs together and a game of hurling might beak out.

I thought lacross goalies were a little crazy. Who in their right mind would voluntarily be a goalie for this?????

My nephew was in the the division ii college lacrosse championship tournament this past week. They lost in the final, as returning champions. Me, I can't figure out how they get enough people to play to even have a tournament. Voluntarily get hacked and knocked over, with no pads and just a light helmet? Our goalie took one in the face estimated close to 100 mph. Those sticks really accelerate the ball speed. Insane game.

He got hacked to the bone early in the season, was mostly sidelined while healing, but still hurt 5 months later. Excited about playing again next year, though. No way, just no way I'd play that game.
