There's an interesting article about these video table games here:

http://fogofgambling.blogspot.com/2011/12/future-of-table-games.html

Has anyone ever played the types of games mentioned in this article? In the second part of the article, there are comments about the atmosphere of a video craps game, and I'm wondering if anyone can either confirm or deny this. There are some in my area, and I'm wondering what I could expect to see.



I'll confirm for the most part. A lot of times you don't even know which player is shooting when it's on the far side of the bank of chairs. Also, because you don't really know what other people are betting, how can you be sure that you making the hard 10 as the point didn't just blow out someone's Don't Pass? The atmosphere was much more subdued than regular Craps. In fact, there is usually more excitement at the Shufflemaster Blackjack games, because you can see everyone else's cards and obviously when the Dealer Busts, everyone left is a winner. So there's a lot of Cheering and socialization (usually).

Are you still referring to the video craps game in this comment? I'd like to know your thoughts on the fun and/or excitement you (or anyone else) have experienced on video craps if you have played before.

It looks as if you're playing on WinCraps, but this time for real money.

The one time I played Video Craps (at Indiana Live!) I found it to be a very unusual experience. On the one hand, everybody seemed to get into it... on the other hand, there was a feeling that it was "rigged" when one player chose to hit roll dice instead of flinging the screen. My roll went kind of badly, and overall, I ended down a bit.

I agree that the Shufflemaster BJ games with the virtual dealers tend to encourage a bit more socializing. I rather enjoy TCP on those machines, or even MS Stud. There's really no competition, and you can root for other players to win.

Would you say that you enjoy the games with the virtual dealers more than the ones with real dealers, or vice versa? Or perhaps no preference?

What I dont understand is why everyone assmes that if you go chip-less touch screen for placing the wagers, that means the game itself must be run by an RNG (Random Number Generator, electronic). I cherish the physical randomizers, and knowing what I know about RNGs I know they are never reallly "random", and I just dont trust them.

All of the systems that I suppport are intended for LIVE gaming utilizing chip-less touch screen wagering, and by the way, in support of handicapped access.
The difference between zero and the smallest possible number? It doesn't matter; once you cross that edge, it might as well be the difference between zero and 1. The difference between infinity and reality? They are mutually exclusive.
