The *minimum* bets on most tables are well over $100. Most players are wagering over $1000 -- many over $10000. Anything that slows down the game loses money. Not to mention the game protection fiasco that accompanies most of these bets.



So if they don't slow the game down too much, and have no game protection issues, could there be a chance? Or am i clutching at straws here lol?

Thanks for the advice anyway.

Your game has game protection issues. Every game has issues. If a player makes a $100 wager on your side bet at a table with a guy who is wagering $100,000, then it is slowing down the game too much. I think your metaphor is optimistic.

Ok fair enough. So they've been tried and failed then?

The "Pairs" bet is the only side bet most of the big casinos offer. That one is pretty much the only game in town. On EZ Bac, they have the Dragon 7. But they cut off 2 decks because of the countability of the Dragon. The game does not get big action and there are just a few tables here and there. I think you may find some casinos have SHFL's Dragon Bonus bet (but I don't quite recall), but it's certainly not on many tables.

If you don't have the money to travel, you're in the wrong business.

Do you know if the owners of the pairs bet and the Dragon 7 receive any royalties for these then?

Thanks

Apologies if that seems like a silly question, just trying to tie it in with the info we've found in our research i.e Royalties can't be charged on a game or side bet in Macau once the government have approved it.

Pairs is public domain. Dragon 7 / EZ Bac is now public domain as well, not sure what the arrangements are with DEQ.

Pretty interesting info to me as well, guys, especially Eliot. Thanks!
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Intersting, and also strange that one of the biggest gaming markets in the world is a no go... Oh well, you guys did warn it wouldn't be easy...
