I actually like the color idea.
Many gamblers have favorite colors.

That's the theory behind Diamond Roulette, but it's got very few installs.

To be honest, I like the ingenuity and motivation that the game designers have. If at first you guys don't succeed, try, try, again. Don't give up. It's the American way. :)

You already bought the space at G2E, but afterwards put this dog to sleep.

Moneysuit31 will be at G2E but I am not at liberty to announce who his distributor is at this time.

A new version, but same basic structure.

Both "Riverboat Roulette" and "Fielder's Choice Craps" have met the legal requirements for table game variations .

I can't wait to see Fielder's Choice Craps. Will it be on a Roulette table too ?

Yep. This was a great idea. I own a roulette wheel, and had a similar idea. I played it for fun with a friend and he loved it. It was a multi-spin bet that would typically take a while to resolve, so he was basically playing the normal game, leaving the side bet I created up. He said it was good because all of the other roulette bets are instantly settled, and you win or lose very quickly (high variance) so this let him at least bet on something with less variance.

(Not to mention the bet was simple, like yours, no patterns to track on say a history display)

Of course some of my other friends didn't really like the bet, so it really depends on the players. If not enough players like the idea, it won't be profitable. If the casinos don't think it's profitable enough, than it won't see the light of day.

I now think the biggest flaw is finding a good edge, at which the bet is not a rip off - but is still high enough for the casino to have it. Remember that on this bet, the HE per resolved shouldn't be too high. But also remember that it will take longer to resolve than a typical roulette bet, which has an edge of 5.26%.

IMO - you should have an edge per bet resolved in the range of 3.5-6 percent. But I don't know anything about what it takes for a game to make it into a casino.

That was set up before they started asking for our opinions.

Remember that they also purchased that booth space before they knew what the house edge was.

Yeah, so? Doesn't everybody? They think they have a winner,
they don't need no stinking house edge..
