Congratulations fellow Texans! Very pleased to hear of your initial successes in LV and wish you continued success. Your plan to get established in Nevada first is a sound one, I think. After all, it is the BIG fish at which we're all aiming. I've been out in West Texas for over 30 years. Wouldn't it be convenient for us to have the Lone Star state in the gaming jurisdiction mix?

Damn Lucky, I never noticed before that you and the Luck Brothers have brown eyes !
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

Congratulations, Luck Brothers! Seems to be a good month for new indy-installs. Wishing you success!

You guys are from Spring, right? I used to live in north Houston, right next to IAH.

We are both originally from Oklahoma -- "Okies from Muskogee". Now,I actually live in Spring but will relocate to Katy in the summer and Kent resides in the Kansas City area.

Thanks Lucky! We know we're supposedly bucking the traditional mode of thinking by introducing a new game by going to Nevada. However, we don't view "Riverboat Roulette" as a new game but rather an addition. Also, as a salesman by trade, it doesn't make sense NOT to try Nevada. There are simply more chances to make a sale! Additionally, if that's where we all want to be anyway, why not target the ultimate goal from the beginning? Games are no different than any other product. Some may say you shouldn't "sell" to table game directors and the like, but that is simply a foreign concept to me. No matter the product or service, sales is a people business and numbers game and there ate simply more chances to make a sale in Nevada.

As far as gaming in Texas, what would all the casino parking lots look like in Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Louisiana without all those Texas license plates?

Congratulation!! This is a great accomplishment. I ought to know this... I spoke to Frank, the TGD at The D, on new games before. He told me not to talk to him about any new games unless I have a couple of placements elsewhere in Vegas first.

Thanks UCivan! Actually, Derek Stevens, the CEO of The D, happened to pass by our game at Raving's and loved it --- so, it sure helps the decision-making process with the CEO likes the game!

We've gotten some pretty good press and publicity since Riverboat Roulette opened earlier this month. The Golden Gate really has gone above and beyond marketing the game to include placing an animated advertisement on their marquee that faces the hoards of people on Freemont Street and runs every few minutes. On opening day, media was present at the property in full force and I was even interviewed for a news segment on the local CBS affiliate. Since then, we've also gotten a few more write-ups and have also been mentioned on a few podcasts dedicated to gaming and Las Vegas.

During the first week, there seemed to be a higher than normal rate of "white outs", however, The Director of Table Games at the property has been very pleased with the participation rate on our bets during the first month. At the present time, I'll reserve my comments as to the hold percentage, as the first week was far "too good". We'll see how things pan out over the course of the next 30 days or so.
