My take on Wynn is that their move to 6:5 blackjack & 2x craps odds is a direct consequence of the plummeting revenue in Macau. Wynn's Chinese cash machine is broken. He was a fool to trust those Commies.
.



I think his new hotel there, the "Wynn Palace", is still on schedule and due to open soon despite the currency and political situation.

If he ever goes to "ten percent commission" on the banker in baccarat, then we know times have changed.

This "resort fee" nonsense works I guess because it cuts commissions to travel agents down by obviously lowering the room charge. It should be included in same. Big players of course don't even know about it as they are fully comped and don't book via travel agents.

ps: I doubt most Chinese tourists would accept "resort fees". I doubt they are trying that crap on in Macau. Chinese like to prepay for everything, not be nickle and dimed on site. They don't tip either but that a discussion for another place and time.

Thanks for the photos. I don't see how players could reach the two spots from their positions on the table. I guess give the chips to the dealer or toss them in?

To the others making sarcastic remarks about the "bar 2" vs "bar 12" and likelyhood of same appearing face up well let's just say you haven't made the rounds. It is without any doubt that crooked tables with magnets would focus on the "six down" pips. It only as I said a couple times, it only would take a few house winners using this method of cheating the player to make a session profitable for said "casino". I'm surprised this group has never heard of magnets under the felt and loaded dice. We aren't in Kansas.

his ex-wife is still the winner!
not my opinion



I guess I could go look, but being lazy, can you please tell us if Mr. Wynn kept the restaurant open, the one opened in her name with her doing the hiring and menu? That would tell us a lot about the break up. I'm sure he already blames her for the stock price decline?

I don't think this can of worms belongs in this thread. But I could be wrong?



Hi Alan. Have you ever been to Northern Nevada, Reno and Lake Tahoe specifically?

Reno is for sure a "hick" town, reminds one of what happens when gold diggers run out of gold. Anyhow, some of the casinos there remind me of old saloons with worn out cards. Cheating would not be unheard of. How this is related to the Wynn move on odds is obvious. It's a way to cheat the player or shall we say beat him down. Add to that hidden "resort fees" which most don't know about until check out, and you have got the relationship. Wynn moving away from five start impeccable service to just another hick joint with people spitting on the floor.

Not meant to argue, but, can you please post some rules you have seen which are "better" for the player at higher minimum tables. Thank you.



Blackjack rules players get as they bet more at some casinos:

3-2 instead of 6-5

Dealer stand on all 17's in higher limit games where it hits soft 17 in most others.

Sometimes surrender and RSA are permitted only at higher limit tables.

In really low limit bad games, a player may only be able to double down on 10 and 11 or not after splitting.

There have been people nuked for being boisterous about cheap dice. These people need to be reinstated and apologized to.

Serious question: Who would they be?

If someone was nuked for being boisterous about cheap dice alone, I'd be happy to look into that. If, however, there were violations of other Forum Rules, I doubt I'd be compelled to reverse anything.

For example, you could have a solid professional BJ player on here, but with enough violations of Forum Rules, he'll end up nuked. MickeyCrimm is another example, wealth of machine AP information, nuked for multiple Rules violations.

Although, if you have a few handles to throw out there, I'd be more than happy to review post history.

Sorry my sarcasm escaped you. I was thinking of Harley and Eagleeye of course, even they never got paranoid enough to blame magnets.

Check two threads from a couple of years ago, Do Casinos Cheat? and Bad Dice. He even posted a picture of some magnet setup. At one point, it was even claimed that a casino near me had flippable magnets. After pounding on the tables and searching for switches there, I gave up.

I was 86'd from Fiesta Rancho following up on Harley's suggestion that bad dice might be in play.

I definitely would advise that any time you do anything that a casino might possibly frown upon, you do so of your own choosing and with due regard for the potential negative impacts.

Making enemies is not something you want to do unintentionally. And the eye is ALWAYS watching and they talk amongst themselves.

They say, "do your own due diligence."

But if the DD involves counting anything in a casino (even the faces of dice) tread VERY carefully!
