I don't get to St. Louis much anymore, but I'd probably play there a little while knowing that it's the employees who have the stake and not a corporation.
It's still a corporation. A corporation us just a collection of people (shareholders). The only difference here is that all the shareholders work for the company.
No. All dealers and floor people will be sensible enough to know that long-term growth depends upon players getting a fair shake and winning from time to time. Its often said that when the Mob ran Vegas atleast they knew to let the players win from time to time. Its the MBA-ridden corporations that want to skin the player alive and leave his broken carcass and empty wallet for the carion eaters.Quote: winmonkeyspit3
So supervisors and dealers will have to put on a show acting like they want you to win when really they want every dime from your pocket.
Attitudes are important in casinos. Sure location matters... but a smile and cheap beer go a long way too.
