Was it comped by the casino? Or part of the prize package that came with the $10K buy-in?Quote: WizardofEngland
I did get my whole bill comped for the stay though, meals, drink and mini bar, was circa $1,800. Not to shabby I think.
As a computer programmer, I would say that it's not as hard as you might think. All I would need to know is how many players are sitting at the table.Quote: odiousgambit
the machine would have to be rigged so that it feeds the right cards to just the dealer. That is quite an ambitious cheat seems to me.
Indian casinos often declare a slot machine jackpot to be a malfunction and the player has no recourse. If it happens in Vegas, you at least get an armed Gaming Officer and a right to a hearing. Thats the difference between a state being worried about its primary industry and a Tribe that has no worries about anything at all.
Some Indian tribes are mere concoctions by lawyers, some Indian tribes are more cults than tribes. The main thing is that usually the licensing authority is a rubber-stamp entity created by the tribe itself. Some Indian tribes have tremendous political clout and economic clout.
And how would you program the device to feed the cards to the dealer when one or two of those players at the table are nutcases who do really weird things or sharpie players who will indeed split two tens from time to time.Quote: s2dbaker

Thanks for that 'voice of reason.'
Too bad it seems to be falling on deaf ears.
I'd be interested to hear if it had happened.
