Casinos will never get the message...
...as long as visitors to Las Vegas and other venues are willing to play black and purple at places like Caesars with some of the poorest blackjack rules around. People are uneducated in gaming, and the casinos want to keep it that way. They don't carry Don or Stanford's books in the gift shop.
Personally, I think eventually these types of games (6:5, D10, etc.) will backfire on the operators, particularly here in Vegas. How many times is a man willing to come here and go home broke. Eventually he has to scream "uncle!!" and give up at some point, never to return. There have to be some winners to keep'em coming back
There will always be a convention trade if only because there are not that many places that can handle a convention with 25,000 to 150,000 attendees, but the casinos can't live off of convention trade alone.
With all the competition, operators like Harrah's are going to have to give their customers more "bang for the buck", or someone else will.
Back to the original point of this thread, I still think playing for a buck a hand for a few hours, no matter how lousy the game, is a better initial experience and sure beats what I did over 20 years ago, standing up, backcounting and getting seasick on cruises to nowhere.
...AND NONE OF THIS EITHER AT THE TABLE--JUST AS BAD
