In table games, little procedures can cost a lot. Getting just one additional round per hour can lead to an increase in annual revenue of 3% or more. Efforts to speed up games usually focus on the dealers themselves. These front line employees are instructed to attract players to the game, make the game fun, and to deal as fast and accurately as they can. Game pace audits help casinos rank dealing speeds so that the fastest dealers can be placed on the highest value games. Game pace is undeniably the single most important factor in maximizing table revenue. It is therefore worthwhile to ask if there are unnecessary procedures in place that subvert game pace. The first place to look is the greatest time-hog itself, the shuffle.

If you’re looking for me after my retirement from the casino world, here I am.
I am available for expert witness services for gaming and casino related legal cases. I am also available for selective free consulting, interviews and public speaking.
In this blog, I will be sharing some of the odd tidbits in my archive from my days in the casino industry. I may create some new stuff along the way, so stay tuned!
