Sheldon was talking about his Marina Bay Sands casino here in Singapore.

I think ill take a 200 dollar bankroll and play craps for the first time at resorts world. Good way to start. No crazy table with cheering. Just dice in a glass case lol

Those payout percentages are totally worthless because the game doesn't conform to a random poker deck.



The NY video poker VLT gives the illusion that your vp skill level influences winning payouts. I'm hard-pressed to think of another legal game so shamelessly deceptive.
Compare this to another sucker bet (Big 6 Big 8 in craps), the winning bet might pay atrociously low, but at least the dice aren't loaded. When the vp deck of cards isn't random, the dice might as well be loaded.

Even if this is common knowledge among serious vp players, it preys on the uneducated locals and tourists who didn't do their research.

Wait, how do you guys know this? How can I know if a machine is bad? Is this only in New York?

We cannot be sure that the dice are not loaded. Has anyone weighed them and checked them out on the calipers? Our aficionados of unbalanced dice need to know.
