Easy BlackJack

Caesar's is testing a new Easy Blackjack game. It's targeted at players who can't count. Perhaps dumbing down games will help get Millennials in the casino door.

A simplified version of Craps has been developed for people whose attention span is insufficient to survive an entire Pass game. While checking their social websites, Atlantic City Millenials may now play Hops and Props, which provides self-service to all of the one-roll games via a layout resembling the Big Six layout.

How do you know who it is targeted to? What is with all the bashing on millennials anyway? Or any generation?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Just jumping on the bandwagon because most podcasts bash on millennials.

Thank you Wizard. I'm 23 years old, quite a young buck to be frequenting these forums. I live in Vegas, and the main reason Millennial aren't gambling is quite frankly, we're broke. I was able to build myself a small, low-roller bankroll grinding quarter FPDW. But if it wasn't for some luck, and some positive variance in key situations, I'd still be playing nickel FPDW at the few casinos that offer it. My friends gawk at me when i tell them I lost $600 in one day, and think I'm the luckiest man alive when I hit two $1k royals in a week.

The Millennials I HAVE seen gambling at casinos are quite frankly, idiots. They walk up with a $10 bill to a $3 blackjack shoe, and stand soft 18 against a dealer 10.

All the smart Millennials have no interest in gambling, in my experience. On my 23rd birthday I got two of my friends to stick a $20 bill in a VP machine with me, but I could tell that they really were "ehhhh" about the whole situation.

I believe there are plenty of smart Millennials out there more than capable of AP-ing. They just aren't interested or don't know its actually possible. I've been trying to get some of my smarter friends to come play with me in profitable situations, but it just doesn't tickle their fancy.

Don't judge them too harshly. I would estimate that 95% of players would stand in that situation. I've been cursed out for hitting in that situation too many times to count (speaking of not being able to count high). In fact, I recently did that at a casino in Brussels and another player nearly $#%& his pants.

In my opinion, people are people. Our fundamental motives and fears are the same as they were 1,000 years ago. Yes, you young folks can text fast, but can you operate a sewing machine? There is always some new technology coming along for every one that fades away. I rather dislike the generational labels and frankly don't even know what generation I'm supposed to be in (born in 1965).

Yeah, I suppose that was kind of harsh. You say you're born in 1965? My parents were born in 1971 and 1973 hahaha. You're right on the border of a Generation X-er and a Baby Boomer. It depends who you ask though. I was born in 1994.

You're generation X.

IMO, the casinos are having the same problems sports is having with millennials. They are more interested in video games. The casinos tried to fix this by making skill-based video machines. It's currently not working because these games need major improvements. Maybe someday they can create a game that is appealing for millennials but it won't be anytime soon.

I have no idea what my generation is characterized by. Nor do I really care. I still say they are all more or less the same. Much like astrology or religion, I think it is all a wasted effort at trying to understand a random chaotic world.
