    The State allows many things that constitute stealing.

    So, what is your proposal for a casino as a viable business venture with stockholders to please? The ballpark 0.50% advantage at Blackjack is apparently too high for you blood. If you owned and operated a casino, what would you set it at? Honest replies only, please.

    I would set it at whatever the traffic will bear.

    Let the market decide! A true capitalist!

    Does that mean it might vary from time to time?

    From the Washington Post -

    An expert witness who testified on Ivey’s behalf told The Washington Post the gambler was allowed to control the way the game was played because he is a high roller. “High rollers are a precious commodity in the casino industry, and so they are ceded any number of special requests to get their business,” said Eliot Jacobson, a self-described “advantage-play expert” and a former professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara who taught computer science. “It’s competition for scarce resources.”

    Jacobson, whose clients include casinos, strongly disagreed with the outcome. The judge “said going forward in the future a casino in the U.K. can be ignorant and should a player come in and win money off them using a new method, the casino doesn’t have to be accountable for their ignorance at all,” Jacobson said. “That to me seems an absurdity.”
    The final approved written judgment by Mr. Justice Mitting in the case Phillip Ivey vs. Genting Casinos UK Limited has been released.
