You could have all sorts of side bets according to what words can be spelled. "Antidisestablishmentarianism" could pay a million to one :P

Imagine being the operator at, say, Harrah's, and the history display shows:
H-A-R-R-A-H-S-S-U-C-K-S



This would be awesome.

Take a wild guess...

>>I have some complaints about the industry, true..>>

I'm sure you have a volume of them. I've never met a dealer that didn't hate the guts of the casino they worked for. Like Steve Wynn says, let them quit, I have a 3 foot stack of applications on my desk to replace them.



I've met a lot of dealers who are fine with their employer. Most are thankful for the job and opportunity. Station Casinos has been very fair to me and other employees, although, - and in spite of - the personality conflicts and pressure situations that can always arise in the table games pit. That's what the dealers and floormen take home. While Gaming can be a very rude industry, there are many pockets of decency.

Part of the juice of Alphabetic Roulette would be the juicy words produced.
The casino would have to let them stand on the display board, as they are valid game results they'd have to take-and-pay on.
If this element brings them in, so much the better.

I would enjoy watching the complete works of William Shakespeare come out one letter at a time ... damn the monkeys at the typewriters!

Aren't a couple of letters missing? How is that handled?

Then there would be these delights ... waiting for that next letter to hit ...

C-U-N- ...

N-I-G-G-E- ...

F-A-G-G-O- ...

Yes...exactly. People would have to kiss their political correctness goodbye.
And the house and players would have to let it stand, as these would be valid spin results in Alphabetic Roulette.

Or kiss the tracking of results goodbye... Yes, I know that won't happen.

Maybe that's why soe letters are missing? In any case, the human propensity to fill in the blanks would make up for any missing letters. and there are other languages. Maybe one day the roulette stats say YYZXSD and that's funny in Antarctican :P

Wait a sec ... speaking of funny, isn't that the funny name of that road and town off I-15 down near Baker, CA? Something bizarre like that anyway. :P

I don't know about that.

But back in the 90s when the wars in the former Yugoslavia raged, I recall an article describing a plan to bomb enemy areas with vowels in order to screw up the local language...

That was an Onion article. The purpose was to help the language, because it was too hard to pronounce anything with so hardly any vowels.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
