Why is that, do U mind sharing your thoughts?Quote: pokerface
soon enough it will be removed from all casinos
This means players don't like it
2. I played at 3 or 4 sessions at different casinos, mostly just myself.
each time I lost all my buy in (a few hundred each), and I always bet the minimum,i.e., $5.
So I understand why other players don't like it.
Even all players lost their buy-ins, I still don't think the casinos make enough money
to cover the dealer' salary because most of the time the dealer just stands there idle.
A game neither the casinos nor the players like, how longer can it exist?
The game is simple.....maybe too simple, like 3CP, but the added feature of 7 cards vs. 3 cards and a side bet that can pay 8000-1 give it enough IMHO.
The play is pretty good in that players fold about a third of hands and call/raise 2/3 of the time.
Hit rate sits just under 45%, in the zone where you want it to be, and you have multi unit pays (e.g. Ante & Raise bets winning) on 28% of hands. Action seems good.
The only complaint I have is with the side bets. The HE on the Straight Flush bet should pay 8-1 on the 3CSF to bring that HE down into the high 6%'s.....13%+ is too high in my opinion and burns out the players bankroll. Also I would let this bet be a $1 min and I believe most operators make it and the Flush Side bet a table minimum proposition (normally $5) and that eats the bankroll too quickly.
Time will tell and I am sure Dan can chime in on the success so far.....to the extent he can before earnings release for Galaxy on 9/8.
Talking about earnings, GLXZ is about 0.35 now. A buy!!!
20's yes, hot? That's a pretty low standard, them and lvc have the bottom of the party pit dealer crop.Quote: UCivan
Thanks. I was wondering why players played at Binion's, but not 4-Queens. The players were all look like tourists, non-locals. The only difference was at Binion's, the dealers were young, chic, and in their hot 20's.
Non experienced table games players can learn it in less than a minute. There is a pretty good chance someone is going to hit a good hand if you play with a few people at the table for a short time. And a lot of times the amount lost on a hand is minimal due to beating the dealer but losing the side bets or losing to the dealer but getting a 4 card flush or 3 card straight flush on the hand.
I changed our paytables to allow for longer play for the customers dollar. I made the 4 card flush 2-1 and the 3 card straight flush 8-1 and took some away from the top end. Obviously the low end payments happen WAY more than the jackpot. I don't like killing the regulars and having people drop $200 in 30 minutes. The side bets start at $1 as well.
