Online gambling started today in NJ and the only casinos not partnered up on it are Revel and the Atlantic Club. That tells you all you need to know why they are failing.

I'll take 75% pen and mediocre rules over 61% and good rules any day of the week.



Assuming one is not a card counter, how is 75% penetration considered preferable to 6 decks, 61% penetration, late surrender and S17?

Revel news: New Revel Lounge "soft opening" this weekend & new tier coming:

Based on my visit (& the reliability of Revel Staff info -for whatever that's worth):

-New high tier lounge took over former Relish location

-new lounge had a bit more hot food selection (carving station)w/top shelf liquor

-Old "Pearl Lounge" to remain open as lower Tier lounge (no hot food- no top shelf liquor)

-weekend hours for both lounges reduced:

-new high tier lounge open for breakfast 11am (formerly 10am), closes at midnite (formerly 4am)

-There will be a new 4th player tier called "Surf" which 1 employee said would be between Ocean & Beach & another said would be above Pearl???





Pearl status is insanely difficult to obtain ( I heard there are only about 250 total Pearl cardholders ) - why would there need to be a higher level?

Yes, a typical player would want shallow pen and great rules. I was answering for me because I count or use other techniques, but I'm not a typical player.

As I said , there was conflicting info re the new tier "Surf" (name sounds more like "platinum" vs being "above Pearl" to me).

However when I was there, I met some Borgata Titanium players a host was recruiting, & it sounded like they're getting a status match.

Whether it will be to Pearl or a new tier I don't know .

The official opening of the new lounge & new tier level was supposed to happen week after Thanksgiving.

Here's a question, we get why NJ can't take bets from the other 50 states, but why not take bets from the rest of the world?

"In addition to people from more than half the states in America illegally trying to log on to New Jersey Internet gambling websites, technology has detected users in Portugal, Ghana, India and Canada trying to do likewise."

Whoa ! this is some story- not sure I buy it:

A poker pro who was toting $100,000 after a big win in Atlantic City escaped with his cash from two harrowing robbery attempts while trying to catch a flight out of Kennedy Airport.
