Come Set a Spell


This is a lame commercial for the Empire Casino at Yonkers Raceway. The casino touts its electronic blackjack games, because the law prevents live tables there.

The thought of betting $25 a hand on these machines is unnerving enough. What really gets me queasy is how at the end of the commercial, the machine is dealing out a perfect blackjack, as the commercial chops through images of "exciting casino action".

How do you get an electronic blackjack machine to deal a blackjack on command while filming a commercial? Hmm?

It doesn't seem like a player has any chance at all. The house edge is total.
