Questions for the 2-27-20 Live Stream
Of all the games that you yourself have designed, which one is your favorite?

As a slot designer, do you think that the continued use of card symbols (10, J, Q, K, A) on the reels is lazy design that detracts from a game's theming, or do you consider them to be traditional symbols that give players a standard point of reference while the top symbols handle the theming?

When explaining the birthday paradox, do people born on February 29th screw up the math?

How do you think the universe will end? Big freeze? Big crunch? Big slurp? Other?

Thanks, Gialmere, for all the topic lists and for the question.

Reminder that this Thursday will be another Live Stream. As usual, if you can't make it, you're welcome to leave your questions here.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

how are the plans for your online "casino 99" going?
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

I am sorry everybody, but there was some miscommunication with Heather and we're not doing a Live Stream today. March 5 almost for sure.
