That's what playing 6:5 with a party pit dealer can do.

Hits do not equal people in the internet world. When viewing just one page of this website you might be creating 4, 5, 10 or even 20 hits, depending on the content. The HTML you are reading is a hit. Each picture or graphical image is a hit, etc.

Unique Visitors would be a more relevant statistic to determine true website popularity.

Angela said the party pit dealers are non-union, receive less training, get fewer breaks per shift, don't have paid vacation or sick leave. So is it true that the casinos have lower labor costs with party pit employees?

If so, this makes the stinginess of the party pit's 6:5 blackjack odds even more maddening.

Party pit dealers get lessons in eye liner application and how to fall gracefully off your eight inch platform shoes. Real dealers get lessons on Blackjack. Running a party pit and running a real BJ pit are utterly different for management, employees and the public.

Like many others I think the sound and lighting could have been better. I don't think it would be that expensive to put a lavalier mic on both of you and run it into a mixer and then into one (or both) of the cameras to get better sound. I didn't really notice terrible background noise, but that could be because of my cheap laptop speakers. Better lighting is a must though! I think one of the results on the youtube compression is a little loss in brightness so you may even want to experiment with over compensating a little to see if that gives better results.

But technical issues aside, I loved the subject matter. I wish we had a party pit where I work. :)

Not necessarily lower labor costs... the casinos are hiring "cleavage" and cleavage can be more expensive than a "real" dealer, particularly if the cleavage gets a guaranteed minimum wage (up to twenty dollars an hour) that "real dealers" do not get unless their actual tokes provide it.

Angela mentioned the boob fee or tit tax that the customer is paying...part of that tit tax is the 6:5, the higher toke rates, etc. Turnover in the Party Pits is probably high and that increases the casino's expenses too.

I'm pretty sure every dealer makes at least the minimum wage. I suspect the reason every table isn't in a party pit is that players tend to bet less at them.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
