If Red Rock has the new stadium seating setup, are there more games than just roulette and blackjack?


Yes. Baccarat. Bubble Craps as well.

I keep getting daily mail from Rampart, but with contests and not offers. They do seem to have revived their $5 gimmick.

Red Rock has a new version of Bubble Craps. Instead of one pair of dice that everyone bets on, now you have your own individual pair of dice at your station. You play at your own pace.

No one is playing it.

Alan, I haven't been to Red Rock since re-opening. There are supposed to have a stadium blackjack area. Do you know what that is? It is kind of a hybrid live blackjack with one live blackjack dealer and usually about 50 terminals using a TITO system. I am curious as to how that is being received and if people are playing?

I was invited to play it as a test group. Live dealer. They had 30 days to test it.

The 30 days has passed so I think it stays. Let me get my Facebook post on it.

From Facebook:

Red Rock casino has installed something that's been referred to as "stadium gaming." There is roulette and there's blackjack. Here's how it works:

Dealers are at the front of the stadium and deal their cards or spin the wheel. The action is shown on camera on a large screen TV.

The players sit at socially distanced computer terminals. Roulette players make their bets on a computer screen. Blackjack players get their cards electronically and bet on their screen.

You insert money at your terminal, so no cash or tips or chips. Terminals are easily disinfected or you can wear gloves.

To make room for the stadium gaming, table games and slots were removed.

I don't know if it's popular or not, but I just got an email asking to test it Thursday night. I will be given a dining voucher to take part in the test.

While I don't play blackjack or roulette I'm interested in taking part. I'm always interested in new gaming technology and im expecting to see more gaming like this because of Covid.

So I went to the "test session." They had $25 of real money loaded on the machine and you had your choice of playing blackjack, roulette, or baccarat following the real dealers who were at the front. I chose baccarat which is a game I don't play, made $5 bets. During the test a camera on the dealer failed and it took a technician about a half hour to replace it. I found it uncomfortable to look down at my computer screen and then look up at the big display TVs. Actually I didn't have to as what was on the big TV was also on my computer screen... but habit told me to look at the big screen.

I was warned that players didn't read their screens properly and forget to cash out, leaving money on the game.

I cashed out $27.50 and had no interest in playing this way.

If I understand this correctly, you have complained to authorities about conditions at RR being unhealthy, continue to think conditions are bad but were willing to be part of a marketing test there for a meal voucher?

When it comes to table games, they need to stick with the tradition. Cards, chips, dice, live dealers etc. That is the reason you go to a casino. If everything becomes electronic, no sense to even leave the house, you can just play online. Casinos need to focus more on legitimizing online gaming if they want to focus more on electronic gaming

If I can play Baccarat with $5 bets, that would get me in the game, because the local tables have a $25 or $50 minimum even though most people would bet $20 or $40 on Banker for the vig split. What are the maximum bets? Is there a tax form for each $600 bet that pays $1200, or $1200 bet that pays $2400? I might have to max my bets at $550 or $1,100. What's the max cash-out? Does the machine eject a TITO at $3,000 and tell you to find a real table? I suspect these stadiums games are the future, but Bingo would be more boring.
