Switch, how much longer will you be in " THE COLONIES " ?
Leaving tomorrow. Should be back in Vegas in April.
This doesn't surprise me. Even though the net outcome is tilted toward the house, it's a fun distraction from regular BJ routine and there is a chance you might win big!
Quick update before I head back. The numbers on the game have been good and have been comparable with their regular Blackjack game.
I've completed an alternate version which has a lower push rate (30%) with a flatter paytable. Nevada Gaming have told me that they can approve both versions if I wish to add the 2nd version and extend the trial period.
I'm aiming to do that as I want to cover which options the players prefer - feedback has suggested that a higher hit frequency and flatter paytable may be more desirable. Also, in order to roll the dice more often, the feature will occur on a dealer bust hand rather than a dealer 22.
Once I've submitted the 2nd version I'll post it here and hopefully get some insighful feedback as to which version appears better.
Any dealer bust hand? That is interesting. It certainly solves the feature frequency issue discussed here. What would the new pay table be? Something like: 0, 1, 2, 5, 10? Hell, I bet "0, 1, 2, 3, 5" would work since it's not a side-bet. I think you're on to something with this tack.
So far I am looking at two paytables, although I have changed the dice set up as well:-
1, 3/2, 3/1, 10/1 and 1, 6/5, 5/1, 10/1, 20/1 is the other. One adds around 1.6% so can be used to change 3/2 to 6/5 and the other adds around 0.3% to the overall HE.
