This is a discussion on Should casinos offer four color deck poker? within the online poker forums, in the Live Poker section; Are casinos losing tons of revenue by not offering poker with four color decks?
I do not think that a four-color deck of cards somehow strongly influences casino revenue. I think that the main casino income comes from slot machines, roulette, and then a kind of card games. I believe that a large income in the casino brings a lot of slot machines and their huge variety.
But this is not so accurate))
I was asking myself the same type of question...after looking at this on a business point of view I don't think so.. I think they save tons of money by using standard decks.. 4 color decks are more expensive then standard.. they also don't have to manage 2 inventories. It's just more decks added to the next order. Not having the good deck when a switch is needed is also reduced to 0. Change all the deck in the entire casino? Why growing a bill for the exact same results? Poker is so big that, at the end, if you don't sit at their table, someone else will!
Will it change my habit if they do, yes! I'll start using 4 color decks when playing online poker.
Never underestimate the power of 7-2!
I always use the 4 color deck option online. Even though I am not color blind nor do I have a sight impediment, it really helps me while I'm flipping through the tables in my smarthphone, it really makes a difference and it greatly prevents the chances of confusing a suit...
Besides that, I wouldn't see its utility in casino tables. Since you virtually can not play more than one table at the time. And even then, if you are really having a difficult time telling between clubs and spades then you should be wearing glasses.
I do not like 4 colored deck at all. Classic red/black is the best for me. If you are in such shape that you can not see the difference between club and spade or diamond and heart you should stop playing for the night.
re: Poker & Should casinos offer four color deck poker?
Losing the casinos I do not think a business is based on lost profit if there is no business. With regard to the letters of 4 colors it would be good because there is no disadvantage for any player. regards
I htink it could help some players especially those that have a hard ttime seeing color. I am for it, I cant see it hurting the game and sometimes the traditional colors need to be changed to make the game easy for everyone, especially if you are drinking and cant tell the clubs from the spades...LOL
