Bottom line is it sounds like the game is in play, getting action and Stephen is getting his lease payment...that is where the rubber meets the road in game development!!


Thanks Paradigm,

TCS-JohnHuxley GFL Bonusing has proved extremely popular. With over 130 tables installed worldwide.

As the product has rolled out, two games in particular have demonstrated their exceptional match with GFL Bonusing.
These two games, which were highlighted at the ICE 2015 show in February, are Raise'em® Poker Plus and Baccarat Power® 8's.

PS. If anyone coming to ICE this year (2016) please give me a visit at TCS-JohnHuxley Booth S6-250.
I will be showing Casino Holdem® Plus (New Poker-Progressive) and Baccarat Power®8s (Baccarat-Progressive) there.

Also in Abbiati Booth (S5-230) showing 3-Card Second-Hand® Poker and at my Join-Booth PST (S5-242) showing 8 New Table games.

I think there are good points being made on each side if the discussion. There are time & motion issues to address, but if players are playing the progressive, properties will figure out if those issues are sufficient to remove the game.

One thought I had was if the progressive really is a small bet related to the main Player/Banker wagers, I bet participation percentage is very high. I can't see too many $100+ main bet players not throwing $1-$5 (whatever the fixed amout is) on the progressive every hand as well.

And if a property has 80%+ participation on a 15-20% HE side bet, they are very unlikely to believe they are not making more money by having the bet on the table. The progressive software will tell them this is the case and any fluctuation in main game win, unless dramatic, will be passed off as variance.

Finally, isn't the pace of baccarat fairly slow anyway? I haven't been to Macau or other international locations to watch a game player, but in the US, baccarat dealers seem to sit and wait while players study their charts and the hand history screen for 60+ secs before deciding to bet Player or Banker.

Bottom line is it sounds like the game is in play, getting action and Stephen is getting his lease payment...that is where the rubber meets the road in game development!!



Dan (Paigiwdan) has a very good chapter on Progressive in his book.

In addition, casinos make money on multiplications. If for each player each hand loses 20 cents, casino will make:

$0.20 /player/hand * 3 player in average/table * 50 hands/hr * 20 hr/day * 30 days/ month * 12 month / year
= $216,000/year/ table .

Linking 5 or more tables for progressive, the profit will be or over millions, at no risk. Not bad at all.

Also coming out in 2016 is my new Casino Hold'em® with a New Progressive-bet (Casino Hold'em® Plus).


Casino Hold'em® Plus with and without Mystery-Jackpot.
Math at Wizard of Odds (www.CasinoHoldemPlus.com). http://bit.ly/2FLcN4i

Casino Hold'em® Progressive Jackpot Side-Bet (Casino Hold'em® Plus)

Introduction
Casino Hold'em® Progressive Jackpot Side Bet
The Progressive is an optional side bet in Casino Hold'em®.
Wins are based on the player's original two cards and the three-card flop. The same math could be applied to any five random cards.

There are four pay tables. In all of them, wins are on a "for one" basis. In the event of a flush or straight, the win is the amount in the "seed" column, although it is better described as a flat win. Pay tables 3 and 4 involve a Mystery Jackpot. I don't know much about it except the total value to the player, which the game owner kindly told me.

The overall return can be found in the lower right cell of each table. http://bit.ly/2FLcN4i
