You could also call the game, "Eighteen-Zero," Roulette.



No Zero Roulette will be more popular.
Red/Black and Even/Odd are gone, the dozens now pay 1 to 1, and single numbers inside pay 25 to 1.

Zero Zero will be a trademarked variant incorporating some bizarre side bets, and possibly bringing back the Red/Black with color zones marked with lights on the tub, instead of the rotor. 45/45/10 odds, of course, and yellow pays 5 to 1.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Even Money bets have a 10% Commission paid upfront (win or lose) and the Table Minimum is $10.

Have you considered a career in the lucrative world of carnival game design?

Yeah, but I think I will first try my hand in dietary supplements.

For out and out luxury, Wynn/Encore is unmatched, but there are suites at Venetian that are larger and have a sauna and exercise room, which you canít find that readily in Vegas. As well, although on the surface it would seem like Wynn/Encore has a lot of restaurants, Venetian/Palazzo just has a much richer variety of food available at all times. The service at Wynn/Encore is probably a little faster and better though.

Venetian does have really good connections for special events seating / tickets.

It is true that the crowd at Venetian has gone downhill of late, but ensconced in a huge suite, it doesnít feel that way.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people. https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/betting-systems/33908-the-adventures-of-mdawg/

Yeah, those prolétariats at Venetian probably couldnít even distinguish Hackelback from Ossetra in a blind taste test.

Not sure whether your disdain is for supplements or the way they're marketed, but for the former, thousands of studies show clear benefits from supplements, and as for the latter, marketing claims are highly regulated and so deception is the exception and not the rule, because those making unsubstantiated claims do get fined.

We all knew about Venetian's triple-zero roulette, but this is the first I heard that they tried to spin that as a benefit to the player. That deception makes them the third addition to my Casino Hall of Shame.

So, now can we get back to discussing which casinos have the most luxurious common areas?

Itís amazing how things work when you believe they will work. Placebo effect.

Equally amazing is how well dietary supplements work with a strict regimen of diet and exerciseÖor you could just diet and exercise.

Oh, no, not fines! Please donít take away 0.5% of my massive revenues! Whatever shall I do?

Casinos with luxurious common areas are generally those that generally donít offer gamblers much in the way of value, and therefore, are not worth visiting. Often have to pay to park anyway.

Next, we should discuss which credit card companiesí corporate headquarters have the nicest common areas.

Okay, Iíve made my point. I apologize. Iíll just hit my thank you button in this thread henceforward.

THANK YOU for putting The Venetian in your Hall of Shame!!!

Oh good lord, you've never heard of double-blind studies?!

It's a bold claim that no supplement has a positive effect on people who eat healthy and exercise. It would be meaningful if there were evidence to back it up.

Nice straw man. Most supplement makers aren't corporate titans, and the fines represent a non-trivial percentage of their income. Look it up.

You mean they're not worth *playing at*. If your point is to visit a luxurious casino to marvel at the splendor, then yeah, it matters.

Yes, yes we can.

So in terms of common areas:

1) VENETIAN takes the #1 spot of places I have been to.

2) BELLAGIO based on the Conservatory.

3) WYNN, based on the Flower Carousel and the Waterfall thingie.
