Small Casinos
Crying Poor!


Our playing and coaching over the past two years have taken us to every casino in Australia. Most of the smaller casinos are crying poor and cutting back on the number of blackjack tables they have opened. They quote staff costs, internet gambling and poker machines as reasons for table closures. A closer inspection, however, reveals a different story.

For many years casinos have relied too much on cash injections from overseas high-rollers and have not paid attention to the local punter. Now the glamorous visitors have disappeared and the locals have been burnt out. A lot of work is needed to attract a new younger generation to the thrills of table games.

After suggestions that our website and newsletter were directly(!) responsible for Crown’s latest blackjack cut, might we make the following observations? (Tongue placed firmly in cheek).

Paying 3/2 for blackjack and sitting on soft 17 are very generous rules on the part of Crown. Under the rules of blackjack at the VCGA website, there are optional table layouts for blackjack to pay 1-1 and dealer to draw on soft 17. Surely this is a more profitable option and won’t affect turnover one iota?

While we are fantasising, let’s imagine treating all people equally.

Imagine a famous sports star or actor who decides to put in a little effort to learn card-counting and uses his/her sizeable bankroll to good effect. (It will happen one day). Any casino would, of course, immediately treat them like any other patron playing in that manner. They would be restricted in their blackjack play and if found persisting, be escorted from the premises. The bad publicity and media attention would not be a consideration.

Yeah Right !!
