I was just wondering about how the members here feel about my BJ games. As I very much enjoy reading everyone's posts and getting advice from everyone on here, i figured i would post my rules and see what you peeps say.

Thank you all in advance for all input and advice!!!

8D( 2 games are machine shuffeled and the rest are hand shuffleled, not counting my High Stakes room)
ES, H17, RSA, DAS

2D( 1 game is machine shuffeled and the other 2 are not)
S, H17, D8-11, RAS, DAS

and here is my major downside...we have an ANTE (i know i know, please keep reading) it is $.50/hand unless you have a players club card and are betting $20(then i pay the ANTE).

I offer 15 BJ games and 3 carnival games.

Limits are:
$1-20 (i have posted about this game before)
$2-100/8D
$5-200/8D
$15-300/8D
$100-2000/8D
$10-200/ DD
$25-500/DD
$50-1000/DD

We are very player freindly and have no problem rasing limits are making special tables for a player that warrants it.

Is this a casino or a private set up that you have for parties and what not... It kind of sounds like an Oklahoma casino.

To be honest, Oklahoma casinos often time have games that offer near 0% house edge and possibly venture into positive territory with various promotions. Of course, you pay for it in the forced ante that can get up to $1 per hand depending on the size of your bet. This negates any good rules... unless the casino is running an ante-free time.

I found a DD game at a podunk casino in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma. Rules were S17, penetration about 65%, DAS, DA2, RSA, no surrender. However, there was also a 6-7-8 3:2 payout, 7-7-7 3:2 and 2:1 on suited BJs. Those rules are fantastic, until you factor in the ante. On top of that, the cards were about as awful as they could be. Downstream Casino had a 7-7-7 promotion too, and you don't pay the ante there... however, the rules weren't QUITE as good, though still pretty good because of competition.

Granted, this was more than 3 years ago, so who knows what it's like now...

I guess being in the middle of nowhere, which I am assuming you are, allows you to get away with Ante, but dont expect good feedback on the games on this site.

But you are in the business of making money and if you get players willing to pay, you are winning the battle.

Tiltpoul- I am a Oklahoma casino, matter of fact I am just down the interstate from Downstream.

I forgot to add we have free ante Sun-Fri 12am-4pm.

Our ante is flat it never goes up because of the size of the bet. We used to have that, and I fought tooth and nail to change it. I am still working on the no ANTE thing.

Just a little more info: my casino is one of 7 in a 30 mile radius; we are the second biggest in the area; all BJ's pay 3:2; i do run promotions; and we are the most easiest PIT to get a comp from...i would say any where.

I posted this just to get an opinon on my rules. I understand the ANTE thing BLOWS, but without the ANTE would you play in my casino?
I post things like this to get opinons from players outside my demographic and to see how better i can make my PIT. ( i know, drop the ANTE)

Ricky,

Any chance of adding any new games..... Such as Pai Gow poker? :)

It kinda sucks around here ever since Downstream got rid of it. Hehe

" D8-11 " Really No doubling on 7 or less ? REALLY? How much do you think this increases the HE. My guess is 00.0001%
