Stadium Gaming?? (at Palazzo/Venetian)

I haven't heard any discussion on this, so I thought I'd start a thread, Palazzo's website is advertising Stadium gaming, at first I thought they might have thrown some tables into Lagasse's stadium, (maybe with some Emeril look a likes in bikinis, err yech, bam).
Anyway, that appears to be way off. It looks like it's a mix of roulette and baccarat, separate games run/dealt by live dealer, with betting terminals where you can bet on both. Interesting concept although I don't know that I need to increase my loss rate for gambling, but I can understand why they would combine the two, due to some of the gaps between bet resolution.
I also thought it was interesting that they were posting a 6% back in comps/freeplays on theoretical win (although this statement doesn't make sense to me). I would think it would be theoretical loss, i.e Roulette has 5% house edge, $100 gambling, $5 loss, 6% of that $5 loss.
Although perhaps it's an industry standard to call it your theoretical win and we all know every gambler ultimately wins.

Anyone tried this?

This is very prevalent in Macau, particularly with baccarat - one dealer and dozens of player positions in rows like a bingo hall.

I definitely could understand that, do they mix roulette on the same terminals there though? That part seemed a bit unusual, or in thinking about it, perhaps I'm incorrect in assuming you could bet on both from one terminal during a session, sort of like multi-tabling online poker.

I dont think they switched the games. it was bac bac bac... like a barrel of monkey chickens.
if i remember correctly, in one room there was a table wherein dealt cards were projected on a video screen, there were 30 rows of terminals, probably 10-15 positions in each row. folks bet banker, player, tie. the dealer dealt the banker and player hands to great dramatic effect.

I noticed this at the Palazzo last month. It was about 9am in the morning, so thing were quiet, but there were 2-3 people playing. As Chuck noted, it is common in Macau, both as a way to increase gaming positions within the govt.-mandated limits on table games, and also to reduce staffing costs. I would definitely expect this concept to spread.

I was actually hoping for a system where they were running bac and routlette simultaneously where you could bet on both at the same time on the same screen and take away down time for the game.

Hi, if you play a system like I do, then this setup is perfect because you can take all the time you want before making your bet.....you can even sit there and just chart until ready to make a bet.....at most other casinos, the dealer's all try and get you to bet every hand and that's no good for a system player!
Plus, the $5 minimum is great!
