wow! no masks needed for these Vegas folks
in the 2 pics I count 5 out of at least a couple hundred
they must be feeling 𝗹𝘂𝗰𝗸𝘆 𝗹𝘂𝗰𝗸𝘆




Here in California, I can't think of an open casino that doesn't require all customers to wear a mask right now. I don't think the state is forcing them, I think they all just decided on their own. I may be wrong.

It seems like casinos are trying to minimize customers touching the cards on blackjack. Is it the same procedure for Ultimate Holden, Let it Ride, 3CP, and Mississippi Stud where they deal face up?



Those game would give players an advantage and even reduce the houses edge if they were dealt face up. Either they let the players handle the cards or dont offer the games are the two options. Kind of like live poker, you either offer ut playing 4 or 5 handed or dont open up the poker room. Irrelevant anyways, you still have to touch the chips.

I donít believe a player could gain an advantage with the three player limit on these games dealt face up. If it were a full table yes but not enough information limited to three players. I have seen two casinos outside of Las Vegas that only had half or less of their carnival tables open and never Mississippi Stud, where the players didnít touch the cards. Others Iíve seen dealing carnival games still had players touch them. The couple that did not, theyíd deal it face down, then the dealer would flip face up the cards of one player at a time and wait for a decision before setting face down again and moving on to the next player.

None of those games will give any possible advantage dealt face up with 3 people. Only MS is vulnerable with 5-6 people. So no, those aren't the two options.

How do players smoke with a mask on?

Have they also banned smoking?

Having gone to a couple California casinos over the weekend I can confirm smoking is not banned in the casinos I visited. Guests would just take their masks off and smoke. I did see staff telling people who had their masks off to put them on but as soon as the staff walked away they took it right back off. I would say I noticed a decrease in smoke though.

Here you go. That's what my friend called them two months ago -- cruise ships on land.

I disagree, playing 3rd base in UTH or even DJ Wild and seeing what cards are still live or dead is an advantage. Obviously having a full table with players exposing more cards would be a greater advantage but even knowing certain cards are still live or dead can dictate what you bet.

Didnít think so. Such a crock. Require masks to be worn but you can remove them to smoke and blow smoke all over?

It's very true that casinos are cruise ships on land. Also it's very true that casinoland is a land of the free, but freedom of choice is NOT freedom of choice anymore when any gambler can bring home COVID19 and may kill his family members .

For example, the famous AP ( SmallCap) brought home covid19, was sickened himself, killed his auntie dead, and almost killed his mother because of covid19.
