I'm thinking bright red Eisenhower jackets, black pants,white shirt and a bow tie. A sharply dressed crew will help your brand to no end.
I think you will also need a catchphrase.



I was actually thinking wigs and dresses, I remember John Chang talking about when he did that. Back then it probably seemed ridiculous but these days it might actually help your longevity, im thinking the last thing a casino wants is a discrimination lawsuit on their hands. Something to think about.

I am not an expert on most things, but blackjack longevity, I know a little about....at least what has worked for me for 17 years, 11 in Las Vegas playing a regular rotation of games with minimal travel (which I don't care for).

My keys to longevity are playing amounts (especially max bets) that are well tolerated for each casino, and time of day/day of week and playing shorter sessions. Shorter sessions means those really big wins that casino personnel have to answer for are minimized. They occasionally occur (oh darn...lol) but in general you are replacing bigger wins with more frequent smaller wins, that are better tolerated. That is the name of my game....don't rock the boat and create situations that pit folks have to answer for. Draw minimal attention.

So that is my game and I am sure there are others doing different things that go towards longevity, but one thing I am fairly sure of is wigs and dresses is not the answer.

I am right AT expectation. Played zero hands. Won $0. lol

I have not played blackjack since early December and only very sparingly since October because I am higher risk and cases were spiking and I just wasn't comfortable with the casino environment and particularly the blackjack tables. . But I got my vaccination yesterday and am ready to begin my year in a couple weeks.

Thank you Omega623. You as well.

By the way, I was having a little fun with the "wigs and dresses" comment, but I applaud your thinking outside the box. Just really think this one (wigs and dresses) is not the answer. But good luck either way. :/

I don't know the full rules in the US but in my local UK casino if you're on the phone or try to use it then you will be asked to take the phone away from the table.

They are the same here, and they are on top of it. One must use a hidden camera of some kind.

If you posted a hidden camera video of playing BJ at a table, how difficult would it be for the casino to reverse engineer it and identify you?
