Does anybody have any knowledge or experience regarding using a new deck of cards for a new casino game. A game I'm working on would work perfectly if I could make "additions" to a standard deck of cards.
Is this something that casino's have no interest in?
If I were to add extra cards to a traditional deck would this allow me to copyright it?
Does anybody know of past or existing examples of games which use a new deck of cards.
Any help would be appreciated.

Spanish 21 uses a regular deck with the 10s removed, obviously easier for the casino to do than add cards.
If you included your own supply of wrapped and sealed decks with a game a casino probably would not object.
I do not recall anyone having done this.
Card craps and card based roulette games typically have custom cards. Many of the CA card rooms have a form of blackjack called "Pure 21.5" which uses a standard deck of cards, but some of the cards have the word "Bonus" written on them.
In all of those cases, these are cards that are needed to bypass regulatory issues. I doubt the casino likes having to use them.
When I posted the question I think I sort of knew the answer. Just being optimistic I think as I've got the basis of a game that works well with a new deck.
In regards to shuffle machines, If a casino were to use a new deck with extra cards, would that affect the continuous shuffle machines using multiple decks. These machines don't recognize cards do they?
You're competing against other 5000++ games that use a standard deck of 52 cards. Why should a casino consider yours? Because you want casino personnel to worried about your special cards? Sorry, they are busy. DOA.
