My understanding is 6 players max on craps table. 3 on each side of stickman. 4 on roulette and I think 3 on blackjack type tables.

These rules are supposed to be strictly adhered to. The other social distance rules are pretty much ridiculous and will likely not get enforced.

It was supposed to be every other slot machine but I saw every machine open and playable. There was just no chair. I donít know if that means you canít stand and play as I saw a guy standing and playing and no one said a word.



Technically people aren't supposed to play consecutive machines if they are strangers.

Employees can ask them to move afaik, but will they dare ask people to do that? I highly doubt it.

Here's one, the very first one I looked at in my notes, Table Mountain, a rather large casino in Fresno. Just opened TODAY. Everyone wears a mask, and NO smoking.

This is the way it should be done. Vegas once again caved into the demands of casino bosses and put health and safety behind their drive for money.

Shameful and hypocritical.

I guess my question is whether the employee will ask them to move when this is spotted or will they wait until there is a complaint from a player on the next machine. My guess is the latter....which could make for an uncomfortable situation. The easy solution is turn off the machine entirely.

I doubt the Casinos want to do this as it looks like dead space with a blue and black screen.

I was going to watch The Poseidon Adventure, but the surveillance footage surely suggests The COVID-19 Adventure.



Actually the thing to do is smoke, viollate the social distance rules, and when (if) they make you leave saunter down Freemont Street and dine at the Heart Attack Grille, taking deep breaths all the way. :-)

If there's one thing that I can't stand it's weakness. Cutting holes in your mask to smoke...that's pretty sad.

Are they enforcing "social distancing" at the Craps table, the most social game in the casino? Are the players standing shoulder to shoulder around the table as usual or just one or two on each side?

FYI, between all these protestors, Vegas, etc. you should prepare yourself for outbreak number 2 in a few weeks.



Has Vegas even peaked from the first wave? Here in Arizona, we are still two weeks from the first peak, and cases are up 50% from a few weeks ago. The only bar close to me has been so packed on weekends that they have decided to do Friday-Sunday only. A months vacation showed them they were working way harder than they needed to. A nice Sunday can bring 200 bikes and an equal amount of cars. I see very few people wearing masks except in the supermarket.

I don't know what the maximum capacity is for the bigger casinos in Vegas. I would doubt if any of them are more than 30% of capacity yet.

Bill, be careful with interpreting the lingo. Some folks are trying to use "first wave" as a calendrical thing even if cases haven't peaked in a state or area. There's a reason for this. The red states that pushed to re-open want to define a peak in some past tense even if there wasn't a peak in their state. It's a lot better for them to define their re-openings as being swamped by a "second wave" as opposed to acknowledging that cases and/or deaths never peaked prior to the re-openings. Arkansas tried this stunt. The governor came out and blatantly said they were experiencing a "second wave" when their cases had been climbing steadily the entire time. Arkansas never shut down, so he is trying to create a narrative where things peaked in the past (they did not), so keeping everything opening was logical.

You'll probably get "second wave" talk in Florida or Georgia or Tennessee soon, even though none of these states peaked. They were projected to peak by old and horrifically wrong U of W IHME models, but they never actually peaked. All of these states re-opened in the middle of their first wave.

Story in the news tonight, they say they're seeing a DOUBLING in new cases in Fresno County since relaxing the shutdown over the last two weeks.
'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.

i just would like to know, for those who earn their living at blackjack isntead of poker, is it easier or harder to win now? i heard rules might be better but with the min bets far higher, u might only have 400 betting units instead of 2000. and that might put a lot of mental stress on you and high risk of going broke. are there still good $5 shoe games? and i mean anywhere in the country, im sure theres a lot better games outside of vegas. maybe in Lousiana or mississippi, or missouri.

i wish i knew of anywhere that installed a new dealers angels machine too from aruze gaming but i think most of the casinos started buying those interblock machines which are totally worthless.
