Gotta be Dover Downs...good luck.
I think Bally Technologies their headquarters right near there.
Not sure why I remember that and it is totally irrelevant.

Just wanted to give the forum an update.

The Double D will be going into Dover Downs. That completes the entire state of Delaware. As strange as it is to me, players do not play the Broad bet. The casino does not hawk it either. With one of the lowest house edge, I expected more play but this was not so. When I asked some of the players why they did not play this, some of the replies were, "there are plenty of bets that pay 7 to 6."

As for the Double D, I have seen over $100 of action on one shooter, consistently. The casino would have been on the hook for 30k if it hit. The players were saying how they were "free rolling" for $5000 when they hit 5 unique doubles and were shooting for the last double. This player had a $25 chip up.

It looks like the Natural side bet for baccarat will be going into four casinos at once. Just need to file all paper works and have the graphics ready. Still had to pound the pavements, but once you make a connection, second and third connections are a little easier to make.

Thats all for now.

Thanks for the update. I'll look more into this bet. It might fun trying to exploit it, but I don't think I'm anywhere near a table to try.

Can you tell us where? I understand if you want to wait until everything is finalized, but if you can't name individual casinos, can you give us a hint? (which state? which region of the country?)

Wanted to give the forum another update.

I drove to a casino in WV to try to get a face to face with the DTG. If they gave me some crap about his being in a meeting, I was prepared to say that I was planning to stay there all day in the poker room so he can call me when he got out. No luck. One of the floor person tried to get a hold of him but DTG was having none of me. Would not even give me the professional courtesy of just saying no, only dead silence and avoiding me.

The floor person was nice enough to fill in the details and told me they are not interested. That's all I asked for was an answer. I do not need to extend any more energy or waste my time trying to contact him.

I got another commitment from another state to put the Double D bet. The Broad bet is not getting as much play as I would have liked so I might take this out. Once it is placed, I will let you know which casino it is. That makes 7 placements and 7 more tables that will be putting this bet.

So far so good but it is a long process.

I'm very anxious to go for this bet. I often notice when I hit all the doubles before a seven. I've done it plenty of times, and I would love to bet it if the edge is amicable.

Dumb question time : " So far so good but it is a long process. "

Now that you have some placements, any thoughts about hitting up a distributor ? A one man band can only play so loud !

To the inventor, Congra!!! Any time is a good time to get a distributor, as long as the price is right.

Aces, congrats on the current placements. I think the Forum felt the same way about the two bets as you are seeing played out on the floor. Double D was interesting, Broad D didn't do much for the group. I think you only need Double D to survive to be successful.

Get 6-12 months of performance data that is positive and look to get a distributor on board. It does not make any sense for you to get individually licensed in multiple states to put in a craps side bet.

There are two places as a developer you need to get your foot in the door: the DTG's office and a distributor's office once your game has proven it can generate incremental revenue on the floor.

It looks like to me you are close to step two of that process! Keep up the good work!
