Aces Casino Blog: "Wild 52" Might Sound Like An Old Dennis Hopper Film, But Actually, It's a Brand New Casino Game Currently Appearing At The Flamingo
Any time the crew over at Aces Casino Entertainment finds out that there's a new casino game appearing somewhere in the city of Las Vegas, we're all over that new game like my dog is to an ice cream cup. Hey, we're not the best orange county casino party company on the west coast for nothing. Any time a new casino game debuts, It's a holiday over here at the Aces offices. We LOVE new games, especially when you see them at a major Las Vegas Strip property like the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Glitter Gulch.
Take a "Wild" guess at the name of this new game. OK, cool sign.
This latest casino game hittin' Las Vegas is called "Wild 52," a game played with a 53-card deck - a normal deck of 52 cards, plus a Joker. (Ed. Note: The term, "Joker," actually comes from the intended mispronunciation of the German word, "Juker," which is their version of Euchre. You're not the only ones that have gaming in your blood.) Now, we could post a huge cut-and-paste copy of the rules of how to play this new game (and we probably WILL, and the end of this blog), but we thought it would be better if a man named David, who is currently the best dealer of "Wild 52" at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, did the honors for us. Take it away, David.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet David, the King of "Wild 52."
OK, I know what you're thinking. There are a lot of new rules, and the situation surrounding the necessary qualification of the dealer cuts down on the odds of winning for the players, but you have to admit, it looks like a lot of fun. Now, it's important to note that the crew at the top orange county casino party in SoCal defines "fun" as "a casino game that doesn't kill the players with the house edge." Unfortunately for us, our good friends at "The Wizard Of Odds" haven't fully play-tested this game.
That's the BAD news. The GOOD news is, our friends over at Collusion Analysis, the guys that look for edges in casino games to exploit a la the "Million Dollar Blackjack Crew" did a few hundred years ago, HAVE studied it. I'll skip to the back page of their synopsis - They've determined that, when played correctly, the house edge should come out at about 1.2%. I can handle that. What I CAN'T handle is how to play the game in the first place.
Well, you know what they say. "Practice Makes Perfect." To that end, the Aces Casino crew is planning to invade the Flamingo hotel and Casino in the next 30 days or so on what we'll define as a "business trip." (Ed. Note: Yeah, right. You guys have the best job in the world, admit it.) We'll go and play this new casino game at length, and we'll report on our findings as soon as we can. I'd say you can expect a blog report on "Wild 52" sometime in July. In the meantime, here's the link for 'Wild 52' from the makers of this newest casino game with some info about their latest creation.
The minute that we get our hands on a "Wild 52" game trainer, we'll post it here on our parakeet paper. For now, that's all for another edition of the Aces Casino Blog from your friends at the best orange county casino night party company on the west coast, Aces Casino Entertainment. We'll be back on Thursday with still ANOTHER brand new (but decades old) casino game that's making it's way back to the Las Vegas casino scene. Come on back, and we'll see you on Thursday with the details!
