one game at the show was I Luv Suits by Shuffle Master. Please click the link for what information I have about it. The base game is exactly the same as High Card Flush, but it looks like they added a couple of side bets.

I think this should serve as a warning to the many wide-eyed game inventors on the forum that in the unlikely chance your game gets several placements, there is little to prevent the big boys from copying it.

...Another issue this page brings up is whether there is an official way to spell out the heart symbol in A-Z letters. Shuffle Master uses the heart symbol in their logo but the "luv" spelling in small print. Is this standard convention or more of a poetic thing where it can go either way?

Why not just use the heart emoticon? ♥️
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

They've been showing Cover All a few years now. The shuffler recognizes how many hands are dealt, and shows the paytable based on that, so if more or less players at the table, the odds change. Interesting concept, but I've never seen it anywhere on any game in a live casino.

Another +1 +1 ..... But what if we turn the table around: copying big boy's games. Perhaps can find market in mid and small casinos, offering low fees.

Never too late to find business opportunities. e.g. SG charges $1500, Galaxy $750, next guy (might include Aces Up) $500, independent $200. Everyone has a fair market share. The next thing is SG buying you out, etc....

I've asked casino operators this. They, in part, say that there is huge value in the name of a game. Most players will just walk right past a game with a name they're not familiar with.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

.................. A good salesman, I am not.

The number of innovative games was better than last year, but not by much. Most were still poker or blackjack variants. Some games were blatant copies of existing games. My favorite was Tiger Split Baccarat. However, I must admit, I'm biased. I created that game and had a 50/50 partnership on it with Dan Lubin. Dan's job was pretty much everything except the math. After Dan's passing, I sold it to SG outright and split the sales price with Dan's widow.



Wizard, for the person who sold his web site for million $'s plus one or more games sold to SG, I would truthfully call him a great salesman!!! Don't have to be so humble. You are the role model for many.

Thank you for the kind words. I think my site sold itself, to honest with you. However, I'll give myself credit for not taking the first offer. However, with things that require a little salesmanship, I'm awful. I couldn't sell a $100 bill for $1.

Anyway, enough about me.

The next new game I'll introduce seen at G2E is U-Turn Blackjack by Shuffle Master. The gist is pretty simple, the dealer acts first, but all the player will know is the face up card and total number of cards dealt to the dealer. This is done with bar-coded cards and the shuffler. To pay for this, a dealer 22 is a push. It will involve an interesting strategy. Playing it at the show, I was often perplexed what to do.

Please click the link for more details.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
