    Name of the game..."reduce operating expenses." Code word for "employees".

    It's only a matter of time. Like the bank teller, I doubt "dealer" is something I would pursue at this point.

    Tech? Yes
    Installer? Yes
    Computer software? Yes

    Dealer? No.

    TDV,

    It's the Casino's that will decide if ETG's bring in more $$$ than MTG's; just like those Casino's that have dumped ET CRAPS Games, in favor of conventional SOLTS, as they bring in more $$$ per Square Foot of Casino Floor!

    electronic gaming makes sense.
    younger crowds, have been raised with this stuff, might as well offer them gaming besides slots.
    not sure if this will save casinos, but as far as floor space, casinos have more than enough for an 8 or 12 seat craps or roulette game.

    do I think it will catch on?

    100 % yes, and Ill offer my reason. back in what, 2012, or 2011 I started playing interblock electronic craps and immediately enjoyed it.
    within a year or two, everywhere I went, I noticed more and more electronic games, roulette, craps, sicbo, now Ive noticed the electronic computer generated cards poker, blackjack,and they seem to be catching on and still more and more casinos are adding electronic gaming.

    I believe we are in the infancy of electronic gaming.
    has anyone here ever played keno, bought 20 games and headed up to the room to watch the results.
    eventually, there will be electronic gaming broadcast thru hotel room tv screens, and anyone who cares too will enter credit card info, and watch bubble craps or electronic wheels shoot roulette balls right in their room, 24 hours a day, while sitting in their Jacuzzi, or playing monopoly with their kids, they will be able to enjoy craps or any other game offered.

    Its coming, and its going to be a huge windfall for casinos.

    in places like Mohegan sun conn, they have one or two blackjack electronic games, but you can play at any terminal anywhere in casino.

    they will alter the laws and the same games will have a terminal in every room, its coming. we all might be alive to witness it.

    just think how dangerous it will be.
    borderline addicts will become full blow addicts, eating pizza, drinking beer, yakking with frieinds in your suite, and hitting those place bet buttons on the terminal while you are entertaining guest.s.......

    It's only a matter of time until you'll be able to gamble all you want from your phone or PC. Much of the rest of the world is already there.

    If they just board the damned places up, that should reduce their operating expenses to near nothing. :confused: You see, there's the problem. You don't need a casino, for electronic shit. The same could be said for Vegas. If you can gamble anywhere, who needs a desolate place like Vegas? Face it, the casino industry, has reached the saturation point. If California legalized casino gambling, and they will, its over for Vegas. :cool:

    For years and years Nevada politicians spent millions
    to keep gambling out of other states. Nevada could
    really suffer from the present trends.

    Eventually electronic gaming will make casinos obsolete

    As Mssthis1 pointed out, it's already here...OK, not U.S. "here, but definitely in Europe. When Roulette Forum was active I saw several reports of studio-based casinos with live dealers generating real time action for players making their bets remotely. Documentation thereof included a picture of two ladies at a craps table: one shooting, the other functioning as the stickchick. (Based on the picture the only thing missing was the potential for "short sticking".) "Protect us from ourselves" laws and restrictions, not technology, is what is keeping us American punters from being able to make bets from the safety and comfort of their own home, but we have seen how relatively easily those restrictions can be circumvented or removed outright in Missouri (and undoubtedly other places) with river boats that never left their docks.


    Not necessarily. Major gambling venues like Las Vegas can still use shopping , entertainment, and social options to attract customers who want a broader experience. While I will agree that there will be a contraction, I think it will be the wide spots in the road like Primm and Jean that could easily dry up and blow away.

    All this could cause a reduction in the
    number of casinos in Vegas as well.

    IMHO, VEGAS Casino's wills survive, assuming they don't get too greedy!!!

    But, Casino's have gotten Greedy as follows:

    1) Tightening BJ Games, so it is very difficult to WIN

    2) Adding Resort Fees, for what used to be FREE

    3) Making Food ""Pay For Itself""

    4) Messing with CRAPS Tables & Payouts

    5) Charging ""Parking Fees""

    6) Many Others to COME???

    The above are what could spell the DEMISE of Vegas, IMHO!

    He never liked his dealing job. Said his tips as a "change boy" in the slot section, were a lot better, than what he made "dealing" at the money wheel, even though he was considered at "top-notch" big wheel guy. :)

    I'm still trying to figure out what he is all about. He said at one
    point a person shouldn't post about DI because he was afraid
    he would be black marked and he would have to go back
    to work in a convenience market.
    Now he says DI doesn't work and nobody can win.
    WHICH IS IT???

    You are correct, to a point, but these changes are are not the action, but rather, the reactions, to a nightmare that has already begun. These things are the indication that, they are already in their death-throws.
    Hell Man, TDVegas, is trying to "sell" Nevada, as a hiking destination, :confused: my ass, give me a break. :cool:

    "Which is it", I think it depends on which "medication" he's taking. I've heard him say before, that the casinos "comp" him, a lot of free bottles of "medication" on a regular basis. His "medicated state" also gets him many "comps" for free lodging, at the county "hotel", complete with wardrobe. :)

    Is he in someway connected with the , CHAMBER of COMMERCE ??
    In addition to everything else he has been promoting the
    bubble craps at Red Rock in Vegas. He has posted some
    pictures showing how generous their payouts are. Some trends on
    that machine showing 5 or 6 of a given number in a trend.
    The indication seems to be the outcomes are better than elsewhere
    in Vegas. If I was a bubble player , Red Rock is where I would go to play.
