With the reopening of casino’s and some of the “enhanced” procedures put in place by regulators due to the spread of Covid, operators have to conform to a new way of dealing games designed to be dealt face down.
In the past operators have been very strict on players possibly sharing information about their hands due to the negative effect it has on the calculated House Edge of the game. Now with the scare of spreading Covid, operators in some states are now required to not allow players to touch their cards.
With this measure in place one would think proprietary games like Let-it-Ride would and probably should remain closed. Some operators in certain states are now dealing such games face up for all players to see before acting on their hands.
I know for certainty this has a significant effect on the calculated house edge and maybe a mathematician or someone from the Wizards team will do the math to see if the casino is at a disadvantage dealing these games face up.
In the meantime I would not be reluctant to play these high house edge games with escalated odds, perhaps the edge may be in the favor of the bettor rather than the casino?

When they limit the amount of players that can play the game that extra info only does so much.

Only C19 edge which I have been taking advantage of is playing Bingo. Capping the capacity of the rooms to 40% has been a blessing.
