I was at Hoosier park in anderson the other day and they stated on Sunday, 11-17-19 all of the electronic table games will be pulled off the floor. They are putting in new tables starting 12-2-19 and they will be ready to go 1-1-20 at 12:01AM. All of the dealers are currently undergoing training. They said their will be 17 BJ games. Also, mississippi stud, 3 card poker,roulette and craps. Sometime after the first of the year they are going to be expaniding their property. BJ is going to be a mix of shoe games,pitch and continuous shuffle. Some will be 3:2 and 6:5. High limit will have one $50 minimum table. The 3 digideal tables they have now are 6 deck and dealer stands on soft 17 with surrender. 66% penetration. This is all from employees at the casino. digideal tables are $5 minimum max $145. New tables will be starting out at $10 tentatively

Just an update. While I did not personally go on new years day when they first started with live cards and dice etc, a co-worker did. She staed it was absolute chaos. They even had police in the racino directing lines and traffic. No idea what the minimus were, but they could have almost charged anything they wanted and still not had any empty seats. My friend ended up winning $270 on slots. I am planning on checking things out when the newness wears off and I will report on things then. I went to Hollywood in Laqwrenceburg on new years eve and had a blast. Very very busy and a lot of people were dressed to the nines. They had their prince impersonator doing a free show at 10pm. At one point they also had a michael jackson lookalike also, They both posed for pictures in front of a backdrop for free. They released a lot of black/white/silver balloons at midnight. I Ended up playing in the celebrity impersonator pit and ended up plus $10 for the night. I had a few blackjacks and tipped the dealers when I got one. Gave the dealers $10 as I colored up and left. The dealer I had was a frank sinatra impersonator and his relief was an asina female name Rose,,,forget who she was an impersonator of. Very good vibes and an awesome night. Most tables were either $15 or $25 minimum. They had a few double deck BJ tables that were dealt face up, but they paid 6:5. They had 3 $100 minimu, tables back in high limit (no, i didn't play those haha). They had one 3 card poker. ALson seen 2 mini bacc tables and commision free pai gow. Double deck $50 minimul also that paid 3:2, but i think you could only double on 9-11 , Also had free bet BJ and high card flush, but I don't know much about either so I didn't play. On the free bet, felt said you got free doubles and free splits except for if you wanted to splits 10's then you had to pay. Prop bets on the BJ was 3 and Top 3. They also had stadium BJ, but the computer was absolutely on fire and the had the lucky lucky bet. 4 roulette tables... 2 $25 minimum and 2 $15 minimum. Hope everyone has a good new year!!!

I still haven't been to either of the racinos since they have switched over, bit I did talk to a co-worker who went yesterday afternoon. She said all the tables she seen were $25 minimum. So I guess they are trying to cash in so to speak on the newness of live table games while they can.
