Are tiles colors matter for players?
Black tiles with red and white points vs.
white tiles with black and red points?
It looks that Both color variations are available to buy.
What is casino preference

I am looking for an expert opinion
Online casino game imaginary scenario for 7-seats table

single player is playing 2 hands against dealer (1 hand)
Two seats are taken by player to bet
32 tiles deviled to 8 stacks
Player got two stacks (8 tiles)
Dealer got one stack (4 tiles)
Five stacks of 4 tiles delivered to all five / no bets "empty seats" as well

players splits his 2 hands to determine result
Dealer reveals tiles and split in house way

"Empty seats" tiles to be revealed and split in house way as well to show "missing wins or lost opportunities" playing against dealer-banker or player-banker in standard manner
8 hands /32 tiles transparently presented on the table

Is it make sense?
Thanks

Yeah, but people look for patterns and trends in Roulette and Baccarat. What trends are you going to look for in Tiles? You either bet or you don't. You don't have the options like you do in Roulette or Baccarat.

When I used to play in London, Players would rarely take the bank (and when they did the casino allowed everyone to pile in on the player bank). They would only do this when they felt there was/had been a bad run of luck. (Also they would communicate between themselves how many Teens and Days they held, so they preferred to play all the Player hands than one hand by taking the bank.)

Need an expert opinion for my raw idea for online game layout

Single player ( two hands allow)
additional 5 seats / hands to be revealed after player confirm split for both hands

Is it beneficial to show all hands after split?
Is it attracts single player to play two hands?

Thanks

Yeah, this is how it is in Vegas.

Some casinos have odd rules about co-banking, though. At MGM grand, you can't co-bank unless you bet on the banking player's hand in the previous round.

For example, player 1 is at a table with players 2 and 3. They are playing a normal non-banking round. If player 3 wanted to bank on the next hand, and players 1 and 2 wanted to co-bank with him, they would have to "back bet" on the current hand. So player 3 would have, for example, $25 in his betting spot, and players 1 and 2 would also have to put $25 on player 3's betting spot. They can also bet on their spot as well, if they wanted. Then, on the banking round, they would be allowed to co-bank with player 3.

Really odd rule that took me a few rounds to get used to. I'm not sure what the reasoning is for it.

It's a part of the game. When the House is banking they just get on and do it. but for a Player bank the Player can ask for their kind of shuffle/delivery. I remermber at one casino I played at there was a list of permitted shuffles, probably similar to your list, but the Dealer did know others.

When the casino is banking they will always do House Way. When a player is banking there's no telling which way is the most popular, since every one has their own favorite way.

Cool...did you make those charts or find them somewhere?

EDIT: I had always heard the "axe head" on 11 is the other way.... i.e., the 5 is the axe head, and the 6 is the handle.

...I am trying to...easy memorize...

What I found helped was, like you, to categorise the sixteen tile types.

Firstly think of them are two rows of eight, with each set of eight divided into two groups of four.

In the top row you just have to learn the top five, leaving you with white pairs (5-5 3-3 2-2) that go in numerical order. Note all the doubles (6-6 thru 1-1) are in the top row. The one I forget is easy 4 is 5th.

In the bottom row...
The first four in the bottom row are two identical tiles, again in numerical order 11 10 7 6.
The last four are the ones with two different tiles, again in numerical order 9 8 7 5 (these are the only places you find 9 and 5).

Correct...the 5-pip pattern mirrors the cross hatch pattern of the cord securing the axe head.

These are really good!

If you're using icons for memory purposes, go for whatever works.

My only comments as far as the tiles traditional associations:

The Gee Joon is sometimes associated with Yin and Yang
The Chong is usually associated with a robe of some kind...not a dress.

If you get a chance to check out Michael Musante's book on Pai Gow, he goes into what some of the designs represent.

For example, the eight dots of "Man" represent the arms and legs and the four major organs, or something like that...

The two dots on "Earth" might represent a stalk of wheat?? I can't remember... I'd have to look in the book when I get home.

I think the 12 dots of "Heaven" each represent something specific, too.

I'm not sure where else to ask, but trying to find an accurate list of when and where the tiles are played. I know Harrahs plays PGT, but only weekends, I saw a similar schedule at Caesars, Paris had it at $100. Does anyone else deal PGT in Vegas?

Based on my 2022 visits, Palace Station has two tables: $25 and $50 (minimums might have gone up) that usually run.

Bellagio and Resorts World also have $100 tables that run during busy times.

I was at Bellagio on a weekend last year and one of the tables had a $200 dollar minimum while the other was at $1000. Surprisingly, the $200 table was empty while the $1000 was filled with (what I assumed were) crazy rich Asians. I was tempted to sit down at the only open chair just to see how the table's vibes changed.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Back when Crazy Rich Asians was in theaters, a nice, older White lady shared with me (an Asian person) how she thought the title was offensive. If our conversation had lasted longer, I probably would have elucidated that "crazy" is an adverb that modifies "rich," not an adjective that modifies "Asians." :D

When I was in Vegas in December I saw a $50 tiles table at MGM Grand.

Note: when I was there Harrahs had tiles during the week as well, but the table opened at 8pm. On weekends it was open at noon.
If anyone gives you 10,000 to 1 on anything, you take it. If John Mellencamp ever wins an Oscar, I am going to be a very rich dude.

Also, FWIW, Ive had a lot of luck asking casinos if I can play for $25 when the posted min is $50.

Harrahs LV, Hard Rock AC and Paris LV have all let me bet $25 instead of the posted $50. If the table is dead and you ask politely theyll usually go for it.

Some places changed the sign and some left the sign but let me play for less.

Vaguely related story, Borgata has a bunch of tables. I sat down at a $20 table and bought in. Placed $20 in the circle and dealer said The minimum is $40. I said The sign says $20. He points at the sign without looking at it. I ask him to look at the sign. Finally looks at the sign and realizes he was wrong and starts shuffling. Borgata has lots of tables and competent dealers but theyre not the friendliest. By far the friendliest Ive seen has been at harrahs LV.

Last time I was at Bellagio (middle of January) one of the tiles dealers said the tables there were open every night from 8:00pm to 2:00am. I was playing $100 a hand at a $50 table, but one night the other table had a $1,000 min.
