Essentials of Casino Game Design: From the Cocktail Napkin to the Casino Floor

The Essentials of Casino Game Design is a handbook for aspiring or practicing game designers, in which the techniques of designing a casino game that actually work are revealed and explained in detail.

The author, Dan Lubin, is an experienced game designer who not only succeeded as an independent, with EZ Pai Gow and Double Blackjack, to name only a couple, but also worked as a table-games designer and manager for big gaming corporations, including Galaxy Gaming, the largest independent supplier of table games in the world.

His approach in this book is more than just giving advice in the how-to style. Rather, he walks aspiring table-game designers through the decision points, and the reasoning behind them, which can make or break a game.

Aside from main game design, topics also include proper side-bet development, including as a stand-alone money maker, game protection, game design, technical writing, and business and negotiation considerations.
