Dueling for Dollars is pretty much Casino War, but you can bet on the Dealer, and it throws in a couple side bets. As I understand it, the game has a few placements in Washington state. Rules and analysis can be found in my new page on Dueling for Dollars.

Please click the link and let me know what you think. As always, I welcome all questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play Dueling for Dollars?

If it's on a shoe, I'll bring my baccarat card and play tie plus.

Ummm... I think Rule 10 and Rule 12 contradict one another.

This was at Charlestown, WV about a year or so ago. It was only open on the weekends for a few hours. It only lasted a few months and they took it out. Not sure why. Iíve seen a few other War games around and they seem to stick. I thought the idea of betting against your hand was something people would like. It adds a little more excitement.

Although the concept of a flush game is the same as high card flush, the few Shflmaster failures on flush games were totally different ways to get there. That's like saying a poker game with community cards and a seven card hand is a knock off of three card poker, just because they're poker games.

This is literally Casino War, just like Cajun Stud is literally Mississippi Stud, and so on, with a random new side bet added. The base game is literally the exact same.

Sooner or later as Galaxy races to the bottom on pricing and continues to just knock off games, the table game industry will result to nothing being innovated on, because Galaxy will copy it, race to the bottom on pricing, and that will be that. Why spend the time to innovate in table games, create new concepts, when that's what is happening?

It's silly really. When nothing new in the table games space happens, don't wonder why.

That point is the elephant in the room when it comes to this business. The Bilski decision has said, in my layman's understanding, that casino games shouldn't be approved future patents because there is nothing physically new there. It is just a way of playing a game. I think it is only a matter of time before the courts, perhaps the Supreme Count, takes up the issue of invalidating most casino game patents. Perhaps nobody is fighting a copycat game too hard lest the courts be forced to make a final decision on the matter.

Even if the Supreme Court says casino games can't be patented, I think we'll still see new games. If the public wants something, the market will find a way to deliver it to them.

I don't agree with that premise. I've seen and get pitched new game concepts constantly. Just because casinos are afraid to try new things and distributors are hesitant to take a shot on new games doesn't mean they are not being put out there.

High Card Flush had one placement when Galaxy bought it. They took a chance on a brand new concept. One of the members here has a really good game called 31 Classic that's just starting to get some traction.

The new games and concepts are out there. The BIG boys just have to give them a chance. Instead of trying to sell an old dinosaur like War (or equivalents) or Let it Ride, give a game inventor with a new look at things a shot.
