You would know better than me, but from all I've heard and read, the more equipment the game needs, even equipment the house already has, the less interested they are likely to be.

I concur with that. I've tried to explain that many game inventors, whose games required special tables, cards, dice, and electronics, but they seldom listen.

Yes, a new device is a 100% deal-breaker for nearly every casino, everywhere on the planet. Many game inventors just don't want to listen to good advice. Then again, I did some work for an exception to this rule -- it was an Asian casino where they invented a new device and they had a game that used their device they wanted to develop for their own casino. I am not sure if the game was a success, but at least it got placed on a casino floor!

Um… Slightly less than 100%.

Down Under Blackjack, which uses a proprietary electronic device to determine the range of the dealer’s down card, has (had?) a few installs.

Had I known 2 weeks ago that one location was Excalibur, I would have looked or asked…

I think a single deck game (poker derivative) is going to fall into a different category than blackjack here. I know many vegas casinos will insist on a shuffler for single deck games to minimize dealer error and speed up the game. Where as a blackjack game can be dealt from a shoe, and to require a shuffler there might be more problematic depending on casino.
