The Mohegan Sun Casino has tables that are from Poker-Pro
It has no dealers just the players.
It's funny how land based casinos are going this way in poker.
I just hope Foxwoods don't
It just looks fake at a land based casino.
Looks like your playing online.In this case I should stay home and play.
When I go to a real casino I just like to see real cards & real dealers.
The only thing is it saves the casino No overhead.Dealers that have no jobs

I play these machines whenever I go on Carnival Cruise Lines for a vacation. I agree that it's just like playing online and really takes away that casino experience feel. That is why I dont think these machines will ever become the norm for most casinos. Simply because patrons and where they gamble with their money will be the final say.

I feel that for the average player, they'll be fine with those machines. But for any serious poker player, they'll go elsewhere to play.

I'm by no means a serious poker player, meaning I don't make a living from it, but if I wanted to play poker when there's a computer involved, I'll stay home and play online.

FWIW, you'll NEVER see these in Atlantic City. Take a look at what happened with the smoking ban. The dealers have quite a bit of pull...As soon as they attempt to put these machines in, you're going to see a lawsuit against the casinos.

These machines give the house a big advantage over dealer games. Not only are they faster but they don't have to pay them either although there is a lease through Pokertek. As a player there are advantages too. If you are a winning player it is more hands, it saves you tips for the dealer and saves the headaches or cards getting bent or damaged. I doubt they will take off in most jurisdictions where live dealers are allowed. I would imagine these machines have places like cruise ships, race tracks and lousy casinos like Harrah's Cherokee that can't have real cards in mind.

I know these tables are very popular at Resorts in Tunica, MS. I think they were on the approved list for NJ last time I saw one for that game.

Investors have been unimpressed by their business lately. PTEK is at an all time low, lost $12,500,000 in the last 12 months on $3,500,000 in revenue and doesn't have enough cash left to go on another year this way. Something has to give. At least they aren't in debt.

I wish Cherokee would have these machines. Any poker is better than no poker (especially when the alternative is playing the tighter than a tick slots).

As of last year, smoking is banned in ~75%+ of the areas in AC casinos...

I can only speak for Bally's, the Borgata, Caesars and Wild Wild West, but those casinos only have a handful of smoking pits that you can play in....luckily they cover all games, so smokers aren't shut out 100%. IIRC, you can still smoke in the high-limit areas.

The last time I was at Caesars, the only BJ pit you could smoke in was at a $50 table.

Ballys used to have the only poker room you could smoke in, but since the ban, they don't allow smoking anymore.
