By the way, there is dogma everywhere in every field with no evidence.

My favorite casino of all time is that newish one near or in the quad.This flys in face of I suspect unproven dogma that casinos make more money if patrons can't see the exits and can't see outside, etc. I don't recall the name

LOL ..Thanks for presenting evidence against your own arguments. Case closed.



Axelwolf - you are living proof that a large majority of adults are still concrete operational.

Is there a penalty for excessive celebration?


I find his attempt to disguise the insult particularly amusing... "I'm not calling you dumb, I'm just saying you can't do intelligent things!" Hahaha

Is this a joke or did you truly suspend someone 3 days for this?

It's a psychological PC term of describing a person incapable of rational or higher-reasoning thinking. Just above the reflexive physical responses of someone in a coma. At least that's my operational definition of it.

People expect the game to be run a certain way.
Certain numbers get certain payouts.

It's been pretty well established for a long time. It's been working for a long time.

So... why change it, for better or worse?

I think you're overlooking the value of familiarity. Changing the game stands to piss off the people who like the game. The people who like the game are the people who play it.

You seem to have figured out that less action exposed to the edge makes the house less money. If people think you're screwing with the game, they may well just not play.



Go to MS and play craps. Bet $25 on the FIVE. Five rolls and you get $35. Been that way every place I have played. Not here. I got paid $37??? Second time it happened I asked. Turns out in MS you automatically get the Buy (vig on win) for 4,5,9,10!
Well HELLO daddy. Those extra dollars add up over the course of 6 hours.

Did it confuse me at first? Yep. After I found out was I pissed? Uh, no.
Always borrow money from a pessimist; They don't expect to get paid back ! Be yourself and speak your thoughts. Those who matter won't mind, and those that mind, don't matter!

I'm a dissenter on the concrete reasoning being necessarily an insult. We learned or rediscovered knowledge, which is what I like.

ON topic, casinos just want stakes as to never suffer a big hit and still make enough. It's really not how much people bet as much as how much people can lose. The psychological aspects can be something an area casinos like to avoid as far aS forcing a decision being made when reality breaks into the fantasy land. Basically not wanting luck to determine their win and not wanting to chase down big winners spending a lot to get them back.
