One of the many field trial games out there right now is Sands Roulette. Still no WoV member has seen it. However, I ran into a former workmate yesterday and asked him to give me a report. He says it is the same as regular roulette, but with three zeros. Note that he wasn't positive the pays were the same, just the three zeros. If the pays are the same, that would put the house edge at 7.69%.

The question for the poll is would you play Sands Roulette?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

There is a joke in there somewhere or you are pulling our leg... adelson already has all 6-5 blackjack

Maybe someone should recommend a happy hour for tiles with no commission- house would still win on copies

It would certainly change things for my Poker For Roulette side bet. But other than that, I'd avoid it.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Under my watch he had zero, not that I had much to do with it.

I think "000."

Is that an even number?

Is this at Venetian, Palazzo or Sands Bethlehem? Or is it a joke I'm not getting?

Say it ain't so. Three zeroes wouldn't be bad if there were 1000 slots and they paid 997-1. I would try that one.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

Maybe the 000 is use as a Bonus-bet/Bonus-spin or some kind of Side-bet?

I read it as if it's the name of the game, and has nothing to do with the Sands casino company.

But now that you mention it, you may be right. I don't know...
