why even bother with the machine in the venetian when u are getting a full 1% in comps here? anyone not needing rooms at the casino in Jean can still bus gas and cigarettes with the comps. and it has 5 spots not 6

Yeah, I wouldn't bother with it either. It was just adding more info to this thread. You're still better off playing this game in Jean.

what makes the one in jean so great is the free room i can get for $1200 coin in, $3000 on saturdays and holiday weekends. (such as all 3 days over NYE). i would think all the little casinos out in the middle of nowhere would be more inclined to install one of these machines than the vegas ones since they dont have live BJ employees in the middle of the night. Thats why im surprised ive not heard of one in other remote locations such as Jean, so someday ill have another possibility of a place to go if Jean ever gets rid of their machine, and hopefully it will be in an area i can play poker also.

In other words, depth charging adds virtually nothing to the game described in the OP.



You are free to believe your own opinion. I am not responsible for what you DO NOT KNOW. I keep stating "theory" of depth charging and you CONSTANTLY omit this key word.

Other(s) have gained wisdom from my posts in this thread.

Cheers and happy holidays.

sabre;

1) You are being a hypocrite -- you demand someone provide proof, but you offer none.

2) You are being unctuous at best -- had you searched the Internet, the information I stated is already in the Public domain. This person with the handle mwmb on blackjackinfo.com already gave away the information to "control" the penetration of a multi-deck video BJ game.

If anyone is trolling, it's sabre.

I played in Jean on this machine. First time I've ever been to the Gold Strike. Now I know why it took me so long to get there.
----------------
Everything the original poster said about the machine is true. The rules are multiple deck (4,6,8, X?), S17, LS, no RS anything. They give 0.1% cashback and a full 1% in comp dollars. You can use your comp dollars at the gift shop, restaurants/buffet, or for gas at the gas station. Of course, I took the gas. Room nights are $12/$15/$30 for S-Th/F/S in "comp dollar" redemption prices.
The machine is fine, but it is slow. Max bet is $100. It's almost impossible to play multiple machines at once. However, you can back bet on other players' hands so the optimal play would be to go in with some friends/confederates and just spread your action across everyone else's hand. There was one guy who had every machine locked up one time. (It might have been the OP?) NO ticket-in/ticket-out. Everything is hand pay.
----------------
Rooms are some of the worst I've ever stayed in. Terrible stench throughout the hallways. Elevators creaky and old. No hot water in the showers. Old furniture, TV tubes, wonky HVAC. One night somebody pulled the fire alarm at 12:30am. Pretty nice hot tub.
---------------
They also have full-pay Deuces Wild for quarters (coin-droppers).

im sure it WAS me who had all 5 locked up, no one else ever does that. i only do it because my roll is very low, and when i need to make a quite sizable bet for my small roll, say $40 for example, i much prefer 5 spots of $8 (to reduce variance) to one bet of $40 which is too high. also others take a long time to act, (doesnt help them much, they still decide wrong) so i get a faster game by playing alone. and i dont have to deal with others smoking etc. rules say 4 decks if u look, also the max bet isnt $100 but $500 if u look closely. no one ever does it though to avoid it locking up for jackpots, the recommended max bet is $149. i also understand when u back bet others hands it dont add to ur comps, only ur own bet on ur hand. wish u wouldve said hi, i wouldve liked to had seen at least one other guy who knows what hes doing

Thanks for the info. Yeah, it must have been you. You asked me if I wanted to play. I said no. You were also bitching to some of the casino staff in the hallway by the elevators at some point later on, no?

Good play for gas, can't see how you stand staying in that hotel for 2 months though. There is NOTHING there. Wireless Internet is $10/day, do you get that comped too?

if ur total bankroll was under $2000, and u had NO OTHER PLACE To STAY, u would see the value in me doing that promotion a lot more. i have no need for wireless internet i pay $80 monthly for verizon broadband and i use it everywhere, even outdoors. the whole reason i was in Jean was i couldnt afford a place to live in vegas.
