I've never heard of it. Might you be confusing it with Flushed?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

There was a lengthy WoV thread on it a few years back.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Thanks. I thought it was a game as opposed to a side bet. I'll look for it my next visit there.

Greetings!

I hope nobody minds me dropping a link in this thread, but it is the most recently active thread in Game Inventors' Corner.

Anyway, to get an idea of the experience that most people could have (or similar) when trying to bring a new game to market, I conducted an interview with DJTeddyBear that can be found here:

https://wizardofvegas.com/articles/when-it-doesnt-work/

After ten years and over ten thousand dollars (which he considers getting off cheap) spent, his game still never made it into casinos.

MrSuit31 is also mentioned a few times in the interview, so please, MrSuit31, if there are any inaccuracies there that you want edited or any statements removed, just shoot me a PM and it will be done within 24 hours.

No worries. No need for correcting or removal.

To confirm, I personally never exhibited at G2E, only Cutting Edge (I attend G2E as often as possible).

As Dave said, I had at one point in time licensed my 31 game patents (two issued) to DEQ, who exhibited one of the variations at G2E (I can't recall which year, but think it was 2017 or 2018).

I am a lawyer, but work with family to give me freedom to pursue this on my own. With that comes significant sacrifices.

It took me several years to get my first install for the original version of Money$uit 31, I believe 5 or 6 years from the initial idea. I have been in all sorts of facilities at this point, some tiny, some huge, but point of the matter is that you will take whatever you can get when trying to introduce a new game to market. It is a very VERY tough/rough sales game on this side of things as an independent. That said, you do need to target the appropriate market for a number of complex reasons (target demographic, game approval cost, license requirement/cost, etc....).

There痴 a couple typos and some ambiguity, but all in all, Brandon did a fine job with the recording of our nearly three hour long telephone interview.

Thanks. 👍

Thanks for the post and making sure everything mentioned about you was kosher!

It sounds like you might have a great story to tell about getting your game to market as well!
