Some of the latest discussion topics @ www.gamingfloor.biz/forum
Best ever casino promotional Videos II
YouTube & website videos are now almost obligatory. A selection of some of the best.
5, 7, or 9 Box Blackjack ?
What's the logic in having just 5 BJ Boxes?. With high % sidebets it seems pretty foolish.
Baccarat/Punto Banco: Does offering 9 to 1 Ties, win more money?
Can offering better payout odds, generate more action and a healthier bottom line?
1962: Britain's first Casino - Brighton, London or Southport?
Plenty of speculation but Britain's first casino may well come as a surprise.

MESSAGE: I need a good contact in a casino in Sharm el Sheik (egypt). I have the "Best" Global JP System for tables. Time is of the utmost importance, PLEASE!.
EMAIL: kenmorriss@live.com
 

This message came in a few days ago.
'With all the deaths that are being reported amongst the older generation of casino employees perhaps it would be appropriate to have an in memorium section added.'
My reply is that it's an excellent idea but it has to be designed and properly maintained. I asked for volunteers a while back to sort through years of messages in this section - no one came forward. Unfortunately my own time is limited these days so if someone wishes to provide a solution I'll be happy to make sure promotion and links are provided to the creation from both Gaming floor.com & .biz.  Ian
