I think the strategy for Ms isn't the reason it's fading away,It's the variance.
When people try it for the first time and lose 10 hands in a row or more,good luck getting them to try it again.


Agreed. This game is just brutal a majority of the time to the civilians.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

You know Harry, I would indeed, but I have found - in my old age - this great and legitimate industry to be a bit treacherous, litigious, and political at times.


Key words TREACHEROUS and POLITICAL.

No expert here, but seems to me, SHFL is the 800lb gorilla in the room. I saw them get 22 placements for SWITCH in Colorado, in less than a month. Good signage, rack cards, dealer training etc.
Game did not last 6 months, but that's a different story.

Buster Blackjack still going strong, but that's because despite limit increase in 2011. Colorado is still a $5 customer market. 20 years 1990-2010 of $5 max has it's results.

You know how sometimes you read too quickly and jumble words together? I saw "treacherous" and "litigious" together and read "lecherous."

And now you own a day spa?

Nahhh...



Stacy - all strictly Kosher over here with my Day Spa, which is our plan to shut down the various naughty hand job shops and improve the Great City of Las Vegas (or at least confine them to Spring Mountain Road, a short cab ride from the touristy strip for those looking for that repugnant nasty.....)

Quite serious here, a pro spa for athletes, student athletes, stressed-out business execs looking for a clean and legit spa, -- as well as for couples massage, as many wives in Vegas come along on the husband's spa trip to certify things are on the up-and-up.

When are YOU stopping into 4M Thai Massage Day Spa.

Also see Our official site. I am proud of my wife.

Nothing Litreacherous here....

Don't be like all the rest and offer hot stone treatments. After all, you're PaiGowDan -- you need to offer a hot Pai Gow tiles treatment.

Just make sure to put the pips face up or the clients will leave with funny dimples on their back...

I bounced this by my wife and she said, "We're also a gambling free Las Vegas business. No dimples for you!" - And we're right next to the Dotty's slot parlor!

Take a look at our reviews on Yelp, type in 4M Thai massage Las Vegas...

What is the reason why BJ Switch did not last 6 months in Colorado market. I like BJ switch, and I'm curious about your and other's opinion on BJ Switch?

I think the Colorado market is pretty weak - even on a Friday or Saturday, they would need to offer Switch at $5 per hand and then hope that the hold is enough to pay the royalties and earn more than a free game.

One place I like to go took out all proprietary games, with the exception of the bust bonus on some tables, and the entire pit is blackjack. They even removed craps and put in bubble craps, which stinks - it is the most boring pit ever. Seeing the crowd on a weekend, I don't know how they keep the doors open.
I heart Crystal Math.
