I would like to make a nomination for the Gambling Hall of "Shame".

PLANET HOLLYWOOD for having 6/5 Jacks or Better Video Poker on the main floor at the $ 1 AND $ 5 level ! Wow, that's a horrible paytable. In fact, I saw $ 1, 7/5 Jacks or Better at McCarran.

- Can someone please tell me that I somehow misread the paytable and it isn't really that bad ?

- VPFREE2 does list $5 for 9/6 JoB at PH in the High Limit room. I guess the philosophy at PH is to just ream the tourist ?

Any other nominations ?

I nominate the person who has no etiquette at the craps table and acts as if it is his first time buying in even though it is not.He can't wait till the established point is made to slow down the rythym of the game and buy in because his $6 8 and $2 hard 8 would hit.

I nominate the person/people who think there's a flow to the cards in blackjack or think there's some kind of rhythm in craps that keeps the dice "hot".

Oh, that's the casino Cooler that's been sent in. Nice work if you can get it.

I was going to say the same thing, however I can't argue that it may mess up the rhythm, it doesn't really hurt or help anyone, but it slows down the game. People love fast action, it adds to their entertainment. I guess people love losing faster.

The philosophy of all of CET is to ream the tourist.

But as long this wasn't EVERY bank in the casino, then it's not that big of a deal to me. Let some idiots get fleeced.

In April, I found a bank of 7/5 BP (98.01%) and 7/5 Super DDB (98.61%) on the 6 $1, $2, $5 game kings nearest the north elevators. These are some of the best game king paytables you'll find for cet on the strip unfortunately that offer full tier credits.

I nominate the people who believe in rhythm, timing, Jesus, or any other random variable that can affect the roll of the dice.

Coolers work. It won't affect the HA. psychologically it does, if the cooler becomes a distraction. It may cause someone to play a worst strategy. It will eat up cards during a good count.

You mean they made a movie about a Cooler but there's no such thing?
