"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

Bimbo Blackjack....

These "video blackjack" machines are all over the LV Strip.  Why can't they have fat dealer with a cigarette in her mouth pitching cards?  Or about a rude Asian break in dealer?  How stupid does one have to be to sit down at one of these machines?  I think if these machines were programed to insult customers they would do better business.

I would like to see a machine programmed like this: Chippy Asian dealer, scowl on her face, barely speaks English, and says crap like this:

"Oh no, 5 card 21, house so rucky tonite...."
"Sorry boys, boss says shuffle"
"House get brackjack again, sorry prayers"
"Sorry, deera no bust tonite"
"Hey boss, I tink dey countin cards..."
"You shoulda prayed royal match, now you get nothing."
"You alway take eben money on brackjack when deerra have Ace..."
"Book says no sprit 5's against 4's, you shoulda double down"
"Check pray, Brown out"
"Prayers no win tonite, house take all money."
"You roose arot of money last hour, maybe you ruck change now?"
"I not from Vietnam, I from China."
"Double Down on soft 19 against 6, that's strange pray."
"You winna big bet too many time, boss not happy."
"Hope you make a money and I make a money."

Here's another machine, but this time with a "feldman" watching.

  1. Why are they so bad? I've seen some that paid 3-2, isn't that better than all the Harrah's 6-5 games? Plus you don't have to tip the machine.

  2. I'm reminded of the poker room that went all electric and then a few months later went back to all human. I've never figured out this stuff about fly to Vegas and play on a computer screen you could have done from home. I know those BJ screens deal fast and don't make mistakes, but I can't see why anyone sits there.

  3. Yeah it's 3/2, but the deck is shuffled on each deal like a video poker machine. It's basically a video CSM with a pair of D cup+ tits in your face. So the house edge is 2-3% and no labor costs.

    I always thought it would be interesting if they had a machine like this that kept a running count for the players and advised them what to bet. It would be something like this:

    "The count is now +7. You should increase your bet from $25 to $250. Good luck.

    "The count is +8, you have a soft 19 against a 6. You should double down. Please put $300 more dollars out."

    "The count is +9, you have $300 bet. The dealer has an Ace up. I would recommend insurance. Please put $150 on the insurance line."

    "The count is +11 and you have decided to split 10's against a dealer 5. I will need to get mgt. approval."

  4. Actually a MindPlay table with the dealer making such announcements would be better and the casino would want it at 6:5. No question it would increase traffic, rapid deals, ... go for it!

  5. Uh oh! I think Mr. Feldman is interested in the female virtual dealer, not the cards being played.
