was there at foxwoods on a weekday... few CSM that i saw were pretty packed 10/15 min. however with 10/15 min hand shuffled all over the place, I wasn't sure why anyone in their right mind would play csm.

For the first time i checked out their HL pit. NMSE 6 decks... not full, but quite a few were playing

mgm did not change their felt, still with same weird wording as before... lost a hand with A6 then dealer pulled a 3....

Really? FW is going into the crapper. My wife is a slot player and she says their machines have gotten so tight it's unbelievable. I like a little VP once in a while but instead of seeing 9/6 on a JoB machine its like 7/5 or worse. We also usually stay overnight but comps for rooms have been dwindling too. Years ago I could get $49 (or better) on a Friday or Saturday but now FW sends me mail with $89 on a Tuesday for their best deal. F FW's. Between H17 and now CSMs I will stick to Turning Stone or somewhere like Mount Airy or Pocono if I want to drive 3 plus hours.

There's no need to head for the hills. If you read this entire thread you will see that there are only 6 CSMs in the entire Foxwoods /MGM complex. The rest of the games are 6 deck S17 starting at $50 and 8 deck H17 starting at $5. With good penetration and surrender offered these games are quite playable.

What difference does it make? Your wife's gonna lose all her money anyway, does it really matter if it takes 20 minutes or it takes an hour?

Default ASMs are on the way

Foxwoods has begun adapting blackjack tables for ASMs. The pits involved are pit 3 in the Rainmaker Casino and pit 23 in the Pequot Casino. They expect them to be installed by this weekend. It's not clear at this time how many tables are involved.

ASM's? That might be helpful.

Absolutely. Cutting down on shuffle-time will speed up the game significantly. Exploiting FW shuffles is a rare occasion anyhow, in my experience.

I hear you but she has her money and I have mine. She's free to play however she wants even if it is a sucker play on the slots. She gets her comps, hits a jackpot once in a blue moon, and is happy so I just leave it at that. Marital bliss.

Seems like a good opportunity to get her to stop playing if they tightened up the slot machines.

In fact a lot of slot players have played less because they never win anymore (even though those wins are just an illusion)

Default ASMs Have Arrived

With the scheduled changing of the cards this morning, came the introduction of the new ASMs. I observed the entire process and everything went smoothly. Obviously the hands per hour immediately increased. The only griping I heard was that the cards are not seen before being placed in the machine.

The machines are on 8 blackjack tables and 4 Spanish 21 tables in pit 3 as well as 12 of the 15 blackjack tables in pit 23.
