All NY Racinos have class II gaming from what I understand. Resorts offers "virtual table games" and makes the claim that they offer single zero roulette which offers guests "better winning odds" than the regular double zero roulette game. Now if they are a Class II establishment, it does not matter how many zeros are on their wheel. Has anyone gambled there and played or seen their "virtual" table games to see how they work? This is the highest grossing casino in the country, I think. It just seems their claims are a bit disengenuous.

Especially in view of the fact that they are taking over the development of the Echelon site in LV.

u sure single 0 is a virtual roulette table?

i know they have a e-roulette single 0 table. electronic everything but the wheel/ball is real. i've played it.

and yes single 0 is better than double 0 if payout for both is 35:1. marketing...
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

That sounds great. If they are only allowed Class II gaming, I wonder how they can legally offer these games. Any idea if their video poker is Class II or real VP?

It's not dealt from a random poker deck unfortunately. I am avoiding using the "Class II" term since it is not related to Indian gaming, but VP in state-run racinos in NY behave like Class II video poker. That is the real black mark about state-run gaming in NY, imo. The 90% slot minimum return is awesome, and the electronic table games have great rules, but video poker in NY racinos is worthless. Ironically, some Indian casinos in New York offer Class III gaming, including video poker.

They can offer these games because no Dealers are involved. The Video Poker is VLT. However, the payout schedules are as good as anywhere else. Double Double Bonus is 98.8%, not including the Bonus Match Card. Deuces Wild that I saw was 98.5%.

Video Poker is not what it used to be. The higher percentages seem to be a thing of the past.



Sorry I didn't get back to this sooner because it's a point that needs to be crystal clear. Those payout percentages are totally worthless because the game doesn't conform to a random poker deck. It likely pays ~92% or so.

Out of all the NY Lottery "casinos," Resorts World has the highest RTP over the last 12 months, of 94.54%. All of the other NY Lottery "casinos" returned between 91.03% and 92.03% for the same period.

They make enough on the terrible slots to offer an okay deal on the roulette and craps electronic version which probably seats at most twelve each and provides more advertising opportunity for them than anything else. Its not to difficult to define the dealerless devices as slot machines.
