In a mid summer month which attracts few Chinese they frequently have a month where the win percentage is terrible. It is simply that the white people are more interested in cashing in on their lucky streaks and hitting the pool.
Do the "non-white" people have a win goal that is not realized, or is it just the action that keeps them at the table? I am especially curious about the players who are risking "syndicate" money. I think, like 98steps and his investors, that there would be some understanding beforehand that when a certain goal is achieved, the front money, and the agreed to winnings, would be taken out of action.
The 2010 Vegas Strip Table Game Data Win% was:
Blackjack - 9.98%
Baccarat - 11.03%
Craps - 11.59%
Roulette - 16.80%
3-Card Poker - 29.05%
Mini-Bacc - 8.34%
Let it ride - 22.31%
Pai Gow Poker - 19.85%
I understand the cumulative effect of a person betting their buy-in a couple times over, but why the difference in games like Roulette and Pai Gow? It would seem with the slower pace and lower house edge the win % would be lower in Pai Gow vs Roulette. Is it the Bonus Bets or is that Roulette can be a more hit and run type game?

Syndicate money? What syndicate? When is syndicate money played? The Chinese are inveterate gamblers but it is indeed most intense at the lunar New Year however Chinese gamble frequently. Chinese males will stay at a table and often give back any massive wins but it is often thought that Chinese females who win big have a tendency to leave with their winnings. Of course all this racial categorization is an amalgam of individual perceptions and might vary. Indeed it might be better to say "Oriental".Quote: Ayecarumba

I went to sleep at the Rio at 11 PM and there were people at the baccarat table. When I came down the next morning at 10, they were still there, in the exact same positions....Quote: pacomartin
I know that casinos set a goal of fours a day of play because they think it is realistic. From the repeated analysis of tourists, many Asian players will stay at the tables for huge numbers of hours.
