In a lot of casinos, a poker rake can approach 10%. Thatís nearly twice that of American roulette but poor players, not time, can offset it.

Frankly, I find it amazing that anyone plays double zero roulette anywhere. And I was stunned to read that there are now Vegas casinos offering triple zero roulette! So if triple zero roulette exists (8% house edge?) , the sky is the limit, I guess.



People play 15% hold slot machines so why wouldn't they play an 8% game?

Keeping a player in the casino longer may be better for a casino at better odds for the player.

-player gets a sense that he is getting more action, though in fact he may make up for that by putting more money over time.
- more likely to return to casino where it appears he is getting value for action
- more likely to end up spending money in their nonGambling amenities since heís there longer.
- more likely to recommend to friends since heís less likely to feel burned for value
- tired players make more mistakes

Just aiming for the sweet spot of taking money from the player may not be their best bet.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

This seems very reasonable. Makes me wonder what a casino looks for when evaluating new games, beyond the known factors like house edge, hands per hour, realized hold, etc. I suppose there are a lot of soft factors involved.

Like a lot of game designers, Iím finding calibrating tgat house edge to something that make sense a bit tricky, so Iíll just have to get to work through all the competing factors and come to something reasonable.
