Just an observation on the layout tough...I thought the betting boxes were too far away from the dealer. The dealer was fairly short, but not overly so, and kept having to lean right over the float to reach the chips on the raise box.



Shiney,

Thanks for the good wishes! That layout was new to me as well, and I'm not sure of the reasons for moving it around. It may well be an alternate design they're trying, or they may have moved to it for good; I don't think anything's set in stone at the moment. I did see in the UK there are a lot of multiple-player per spot layouts that we don't see in the States, and they might be trialing that design to allow for those to be added (at least that seemed like the most likely reason to me). Since the player doesn't have to touch the cards with a face-up deal, perhaps they will move the entire player spots up towards the center of the table more. Then again, it never hurts to give a nicely-endowed woman a reason to lean towards you and smile...as mentioned above. lol....

Congratulations! I'm new to the forum and casino game design/inventing and hearing success stories like this (despite what the pessimists say) is inspirational.



Welcome to the forum, DrMeh, and thanks for the congrats! I hope your designs do well for you; there are a lot of excellent resources on here for nearly every aspect. I used the professional services of several in building the game and was universally pleased with their work. PM me if you like, or read the thread from October where I get into the weeds on the game, to get an idea of who worked with me in what capacities.

Babs, you definitely need to go if possible. Seeing your game on the floor with players betting real money and getting their feedback regarding what they like and don't like is what game development is all about....there are very few other ways to hone your skills for future game development and/or determining what is required to tweak the existing game then watching and talking to players on the casino floor playing your game. Go to Diamond Jo's :-)!

Babs, it could simply have to do with the maintenance crew who installed the layout on the game. They may have moved the betting cisrcles further away from the dealers as the dealers enjoy more working space in front of them, place to cutt he chip and count the money without encroaching on the actual betting areas. It could also be that they simply made a boo-boo by not measuring the layout accurately when installing.

That is an easy fix so I wouldn't worry about it too much.......

Go to Diamond Jo's!!!! :)

Tom,

I don't think it was a boo-boo. I think it's probably different markets, different preferences and requirements. But I could be wrong.

Babs, darling, you were only wrong once. And I think you were unduly influenced by Aceossapdes. They say marriage is better the second time around. As long as I don't have to sign a pre-nup. Surely you can trust me ?

I stopped by Diamond Jo on Friday night (2/7) and One for the Money wasn't on the floor yet.

There could also be a security issue with having the boxes so close to the player, particuarly the outer ones.

And i know we're joking about the well endowed lady leaning across, but this may make some dealers feel uncomfortable.

I hope im not sounding too negative or nit-picking, i really do like the game! Like Tomspur said, it should be an easy enough fix. I also agree with Paradigm that you should go play it with players betting real money.

Once again, best of luck with it.

I'm very pleased to announce that One for the Money will be opening its Nevada trial at the Venetian Las Vegas on May 15th. It has done well at the Dubuque Diamond Jo's, Harrington DE, and London Asper's so far; here's hoping for further success in Vegas. Thanks to all for the good wishes and support!
