What casino tried them and why were they removed? Technical issue or was it unpopular?

I agree its part of the experience, but it is a part of the experience that I do not particularly like or find safe.



Rivers Pittsburgh. I almost got to play the first hand but tech issues and a steakhouse reservation collided.

Why? I heard they were not popular. Game moved too fast and BJ players like the classic feel of chips.

Now they have an electronic version where a real dealer deals up to 30 players on the same hand. No thanks.

Heh. This thread reminds of the hotel manager who inspired the TV show "Fawlty Towers". He felt that he could really run a first rate resort if it wasn't for all the bothersome guests getting in his way.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

If they get rid of chips they might as well get rid of the tables, cards, dice, dominoes, and dealers and just make it all electronic*, because otherwise what's the point.

I am 100% in favor of keeping chips.



*and I'm sure there are some in the casino industry who would love to do just that

Touching the cards would pretty much only apply to poker and maybe some baccarat.



Also pai gow poker and pretty much all the carnival games involve touching the cards. I wonder if it would be possible to make an autoshuffler that also shines UV light on the cards. It would be more difficult to do something similar to chips, except for maybe with roulette.

I would think faster paced BJ games would be far better for casinos.

Not if the players will not play at them.

The casino should just teleport the cards directly to the player, etc. They should do that. Maybe even the casino could like almost kill all the bacteria on the cards but a few and let the rest live in the wild just for kindness. They could just teleport them to Mars or something so they won't be scared being released. Maybe also too, if you lose money and don't want your wife to find out and come here looking trying to help you, instead of going home broke unable to pay the bills or get a side chick, you could just stay at the casino a few extra hours to wash the chips and pay off your losses.

Casinos are such dirty places, it would be nice if they would use this zero revenue time to get rid of all the dirty things like smokers and door knobs and handicapped railings and people, and straws and money. Getting rid of chips is a good start, and totally feasible with no economic cost at all. I'm glad we were still able to keep talking about this one. At first I didn't even think there was a solution or even a problem.

Good reason would be smokers directing their smoke up and out, broadcasting all particles including Covid 19. What a great time to totally eliminate smoking, including pot, in ALL enclosed spaces!
