I have an exciting announcement (for me, anyway):

Bad Beat Blackjack has gone live at the Nisqually Red Wind Casino in Olympia, Washington. It's been live for 7 weeks and players seem to like it so far.

Go play it. :)

For the record, this particular sale represents a milestone in my practice -- it was a solo effort from inception to installation. I handled everything including game design, math, patent prosecution (okay, I had legal help with the patent), regulatory approvals, marketing, and sales. I've done deals before, but always through vendors or distributors. This is my first solo install.



Congrats. This is just straightforward and simple enough to be a big hit. Best of luck!

Well done ME, it takes a lot to get a new game out there.



Is it a game or a side bet?

Forgive me if this had been discussed in the past, but has the Wiz or anyone else had any ideas on BS changes if you have a side bet close to or equal to your main bet? For example, split 9's and 10's against a 10 for a great chance at a big payoff? How would this factor into the house edge?

Interesting take on proprietary games and sidebets.

Here's another one about picking the right name for your side bet.

ME best wishes and hoping for great success in your game. Well done!!!! My feeling has always been to go solo and not give up 75%+ of your game to a distributor. If you feel confident in your game then the way you went about this is the way to go.
