I just got home from Fitzgeralds last night. I saw the Alphabetic Roulette, but didn't play it. I guess it's the economy, but most of the tables were closed at Fitzgeralds during the day, inculding Alphabetic Roulette. As far as I can tell, it's the same game as standard roulette, only with letters rather than numbers, and 25 spots rather than 38. Since the house edge is 4% rather than the 5.26% found on double zero roulette, if you're going to play roulette, the Alphabetic version would be better. $5 minimum, and I didn't notice what denomination the chips were. I can't add anything else to what the Wizard has already said about it.

It's important to remember that casinos are for ADULTS ONLY! Adults can see through the coincidence of a string of letter's saying "H-A-R-R-A-H-S-S-U-C-K-S",

or "M-E-T-H-I-N-K-S-I-T-I-S-L-I-K-E-A-W-E-A-S-E-L". Subliminals aren't EVERYTHING. One could use a counter under an alphabetic listing of each letter to show how many "hits" (out of the last 100 or 1,000 spins) came for it.

" Roulette Evolution and its a cash cow for all of them, you have to wait for a
seat most of the time and fight with somebody to get it. "

I found this to be true on my last visit to Blackhawk/CentralCity. While Golden Baccarat was dead in 2 casinos and removed in another.
Probably cause you can not squeeze or tear up digital cards.

Yeah, there's not enough places on the layout to bet. Gimee a break. Watch people play, they ignore 80% of the places to bet now. A lot of tables have the snake bet and thats ignored most of the time also.



Yes! And the Red Snake Bet was one of my FAVORITE ideas for an additional series side bet!
