Ouch, who do I have to pay to get my game on the poll! As if not placing didn't sting enough ;)

All joking aside I do want as much feedback as possible on my game from those who attended the show. Rip it to shreds, tell me it's the next best thing since sliced bread, or anything in between, I just want some honest feedback to improve on :)



You can approach me by PM and I'll give it to you straight.

If anyone else who attended doesn't remember which one Lucky Sevens was, here is a photo to jog your memory.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Hey FCBLComish,

Do you mind going into a little more detail about the problem with the showdown (doubling mechanism)? Is it a potential payout issue for the operators you are referencing? As in the potential to pay out too large of an amount?

We spoke at the conference and I voiced my concern about a dealer purposefully leaving a slug of tens unshuffled in the shoe, while the player doubles himself up to the aggregate payout. Very risky.

Ah right! I remember you. Well as mentioned in person this issue would be eliminated with at continuous shuffling machine, which is something we highly recommend for Lucky Sevens. This game can be played with any amount of decks in the shoe, although our card counting analysis was only done for 8. All of that is irrelevant if a CSM is used however. The games house edge ever so slightly increases when you use less decks, but this is to a very marginal degree, having an 8 deck shoe maintain a 4.288% house edge, while a 2 deck shoe has a 4.483% house edge.

As an honest question, is it impractical to request a CSM used for a new game? It of course runs without it, but using one eliminates that potential issue of the game.

Many casinos, mine included, do not have CSMs on property. I have removed them from each of the last 3 properties where I worked, for one very good reason.

There are many variables that need to line up for a new game to succeed. My "spidey-sense" is tingling on this one. It may be a great success, and I hope it will be. I just am not the one who will take a chance on it.

Fair enough! Do you have any recommendations on how to deal with this problem without CSM's? I'm going to give this some more thought and see if I can find a good answer.

On top of that any other feedback on the game is more than appreciated!

Not sure what the solution would be. One of the key factors in the success of a game is can it be exploited (by players or dealers).

There is no game that is 100% safe, but there are people out there who will see a game, and try to analyze the holes. This mechanism where a player can continually redouble looks exploitable.

The Wizard's assistants in Belgrade have been busy editing the 2018 Cutting Edge videos and the first three are already done. The first I'll announce, by tradition, goes to the one with our favorite dealer and model, Angela. In this case Money$uit31 (Classic). As you can see, they added a new introduction, which reminded me of the them song to many 1970's situation comedies. Enjoy!

Video was good. And I like the new intro

Only thing I’d change is film it from a camera angle that allows someone watching to more easily see the cards that each player has during the game play part.
