The long version


It's bad enough that you can see the table printing says blackjack pays 6 to 5, but at the next to last scene of this long version, the dealer is sweeping a losing bet. I mean come on! Can't they script a winner? They're playing with fake chips! Surely they can fake some winning hands!

In the one I link to in the OP there is a player blackjack on the table in the opening seconds that has not been paid before the dealer draws.

apparently the marketing department decided that they didn't know where the ploppies went? That this category of people has been missing from the Strat? Got enough whales but people wanting a reasonably priced beer [which probably can't be found there] might be duped into checking it out?

It seems to be accepted as fact that trying to get the kind of players that don't want 6:5 etc is a non-starter with the powers-that-be

That's a good commercial to to get first time visitors to Vegas to try them. Not everyone can afford what much of the Strip has turned into. There is definitely a market for the old Vegas World/Circus Circus crowd.

My god the irony of complaining about how Vegas used to be while showing a 6-5 blackjack table...

I wish there was a bigger social media platform we could use as a speaker phone to educate the public that 6-5 isn't blackjack. As soon as you 'inform' all the ploppies that the game is literally 4 times as bad as a 3-2 game then they'll start shouting back, ultimately dumping 6-5 games.

I mean, as a counter, you could just play quarters or go off strip... but as someone looking at Vegas as a 'vacation destination' the strip has just gone so down hill in terms of gambling/drink prices/hotel prices/etc. Isn't that why tourists go to Vegas? To drink and gamble without paying $500/night for a hotel room?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Which is why this commercial will hit a nerve with many people. And you are completely wrong on the 6-5 thing. Most players don't really care. Nobody asks about house edge or volatility or frequency or any of that. 95% of players are just playing for fun. They play keno and roulette and penny slots. Do you really think a 6-5 blackjack that has a lower house edge than the other games I just mentioned is going to turn them off?

SET it up and get members here interested, someone needs to take the first step, Ill join in as long as its not just about 6-5. Perhaps Zuga would allow WOO to link to a Twitter feed about better odds on everything Vegas and major gambling destinations.

I always wondered if gamblers/Vacationers / vegas locals/ enthusiasts could organize some type of club/union or something. They could negotiate with casinos for better games, deals, promotions. They could Boycott casinos with horrible odds and comps. I have a feeling casinos will negotiate if you bring in groups of people to stay at there casinos. I know a few gamblers( I'm not talking big wales, but players who just $5 denomination VP) they have got management to put in FPDW , 10/7, 9/6 etc etc
