    and Id think the opposite. with business so bad in AC, I might have figured they would want to keep the table at at least 10 dollars to make it worth their effort to offer it.
    but then again, I never thought Id see the day when AC brought in bubbles since they have been around since what, 2011? or so, or at least that's when I started playing them. and ac never brought one in.

    what I see now is that casinos are starting to bring in the hybrid dealer games, blackjack and baccarat, as well as roulette.
    one dealer, in Mohegan, deals out to over 72 seats, there might be more terminals, that's all I saw, around that.
    sands Bethlehem is advertising it, first time I ever saw it was in parx.

    theres no reason to not offer a terminal similar to a bubble around a live craps table. might be slow, but it will be the perfect hybrid, and with a lower min, Im willing to bet the terminals for craps will always be full, as long as its a live table they are using for results. I hope the day comes soon enough.
    then, the casino will make craps worth it for themselves. 50 terminals, 100 terminals for one working crew at one table.

    I think that one in A.C. Is of the Interblock species, the one I play is the Aruze, contraption, and any observations, are in reference to the one machine, I have seen, unless I would say otherwise. Still working on ways to "Game" this machine. So far so good.

    Correct. The one in AC is the Interblock machine. They call it Organic craps.

    I liked that version, but it was a bit slower than a live table. people would go back to their terminal to bet then first come and roll.
    and being my terminal most of the time was too far, I wasn't going to leave my terminal open to roll dice and expect the pit boss to watch so no one stole my money. Im sure it has happened.

    There were quite a few people playing the hybrid game when we were there in February, but only 3 or 4 decided to shoot. I can definitely understand your concern about leaving your terminal unattended in order to shoot and that's probably why only a few choose to shoot. All had terminals located very close to the bathtub, er, small 1 man craps table.

    If I had to wager, I'd bet you'll see more players "popping" the video screen with their fist. :mad: :D :cool:

    I've been saying exactly the same thing, "JoeW" but TomP, insists that there is? Curiously enough, Knight-o-Tack, sides with TomP. Very puzzling, don't you think?

    yeah, I shot twice when I was sitting at first seat next to tub.
    the problem with this hybrid version is that it ISNT a real table even though the dice are real.
    the short tub version doesn't give the feel of a real dice table so to me, Id rather just a bubble rolling the oversized dice.
    Its faster and moves the game at a much better pace.

    But you can't get that excitement at a bubble machine when a table full of people and you just tossed the ATS bet or tossed like repeaters where someone parlayed it and won a nice chunk of change. No one is tossing you chips as a tip cause you had a monster role. But that is just my feeling on it.

    Yeah, on tables where there are a lot of center bets, and the dealers can't spell C-R-A-P-S, yet. :confused: :D :cool:.

    Played the new interblock machine again and on the Buy bet it says "5% of the amount wagered" on lay bets 5% of the amount won. Too many suits around to chance taking a picture, I'll try again next trip.

    It's a new machine so it should have the most up to date software. On those Florida machines they must of had a lazy code writer who had never played craps so he just copy and pasted for buy and lay bets. Who knows they may let the end user modify the software but I find that to be highly unlikely.

    I think the machine here may have a biased die. Over 400 rolls, boxcars have only shown twice while aces showed up 4 times in 50 rolls Thursday night.

    I like that the Interblock machine shows the outcomes of the last 100 rolls. The one in Ballys AC statistically shows that it's outcomes meet probability expectations.
