Automatic player wins on six cards reduces that edge, as do the dealer standing on any total with six cards.
Doubled down on a 10 and drew a six. Dealer drew a six card 16 and instead of pushing I won. Seems like dealer loses any hand under 17.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I would have a few of the best(well, not the best of the best, no way I would put in 103% ) games available in each category and then I would mostly mix in the good, bad, and the ugly.

I could advertise I have some of the best odds in town and cater to people looking for that. However, I would rape anyone who's dumb enough to play the worst games in town because I would have lots of those games and machines as well.

Anyone playing games like the big 6 doesn't care about the odds and nothing will change the way they gamble or how much they lose.

I would add a fortune teller booth to each entrance.

I would name my casino Fortune Tellers and design it according to the name.

The Gift Shop and rooms would be stocked with every betting system and voodoo book imaginable.

I'm pretty sure that the guy who owns The D and Golden Gate has insisted on keeping 'Blackjack' at 3/2 so I guess that is where the value is.

If I owned a bar in Las Vegas I would advertise "Over 100% payback video poker available here". Most of my games would be the normal 95%-96% video poker available in bars but I would put a 10/7 Double Bonus on a few machines for quarters. Almost nobody would play it but I reap the benefits of advertising it.

That's an interesting idea, and one I think we've all seen before. A casino puts a "100%" on a bank, but only one or two of the machines has the good game on it.

If *I* had a bar, I would put maybe six games on my machines, all in the 97% range, and put a 2% meter on them. The word would get around, I'd make sure of it. Teams, APs, would all be welcome. I could advertise "best progressives in town", and essentially I would be telling the truth.

Or, maybe lower the line-up but make a $1500 reset. Keep the 2% meter.

If you all remember the Dancer-Kneeland experiment at The M Resort, I feel they were doomed from the start, because they were giving too much away. Plus, the games at reset really stunk. Oh well, no one asked me.

I would also put a good meter on a keno 6-spot, or something like that. I know I've said that before and am repeating myself.

By all means, name drop away. It was a very good dinner. Some of the best veal I ever had, to be honest.



I know it tastes good, but I live next to veal farms. It's awful. I try to avoid driving where I will see them in those little boxes. Very sad. I boycott it.
