On a side note, even TCS John Huxley, the premier manufacturer of roulette wheels (and other equipment), calls it Triple Zero, and uses a logo rather than 000.


Does anybody use a wheel with "000"? I thought every installation of the triple-zero wheel used a logo along with 0 and 00.

For it is written in the Gamblers' Bible, in the Book of Revelation:
"Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the Devil's Game, for it is the number of a wheel. That number has six zeroes."

Maybe I should drop the sarcasm before a casino executive reading this thinks: You know what? That's brilliant!

I was about to tell you to shut the F up, but you figured it out. 😜

But the reality is, as much as we tend to deride casino management, they’re not idiots. They’ll think of that crap on their own soon enough. Or maybe they’ll come to the conclusion that while those those palaces in the desert weren’t built on winners, you need some winners to attract the losers.

Triple zero is just an example of the old saying: Let’s throw some shit on the walls and see if it sticks. 😵‍💫



I don't know, looking at this:

https://gaming.unlv.edu/reports/strip_game_mix.pdf

It would seem that Vegas Strip Table Game revenues (on the whole) peaked from Great Recession recovery numbers in 2014 and have been on a steady decline since then. I don't know how much crossover to other games is a part of that and, obviously, casinos almost everywhere else in the country probably isn't good. With only a few exceptions, if you're not in a state with casinos, then you're at least bordering one.

Still, 2019 was the worst year for Table Games revenue for the Vegas Strip unless you go back to 2010. If we go prior to the Great recession, you'd have to go back to 2005.

Three zeroes on the Roulette Table. I get that Roulette plays slower, but a player could blindly select a $0.05 or $1 denomination slot machine and perhaps square up against an equal or lower house edge.

From the OP's source:



Reading that gave me pause and I thought, "Okay, the games aren't terrible, but he's surely not calling $15 a great value." I just gave Treasure Island a call a few minutes ago and got transferred to the pit: Sure enough, Craps will open at 11:00a.m. with a $15 minimum. They are indeed calling $15 minimums a, "Great value."



I had a similar thought the first time I read his update but because I follow him on Twitter I cut him some slack and decided the comment was mainly based on their 3:2 Blackjack, especially double deck. They also didn't have their other poker based carnival games open when he visited and those are surely not a value as they were always at least $10 precovid while CET properties and some MGM were $5. Bottom line though, he missed the mark overall with that comment.
