The Blackjack Table

Recommended Posts

Here's the real point, if you play on those joker ass tables in OK, you're losing before you even start playing.  The only way to truly play the game is going to Vegas and finding a $25 or $50 min bet single deck table that no one is sitting at.  Just you and the dealer.  I played 18 hours straight, without eating, while drinking at least 30 gin and club sodas at one a few years back with a $500 that I took down from my room to go make sports bets.  When you find one, get on it.  I think I walked away that night with about $400 in winnings, a serious drunk, and having tipped various dealers and beverage distribution engineers a few hundred dollars.

I go fairly often, do a bit better at L'Auberge typically, but stay at the Nugget.

Counting single and 2-deck games is much easier.  The casino I go to in WI every summer has 2-deck pitch tables that pay 3-2.

My streak at the nugget has been solid enough that it keeps me from shuttling over LAuberge 

I’ve played on some really good tables at GN

El Cortez has 3-2 single deck.

Last I knew, the Silverton and Arizona Charlie's on Decatur both did as well.

I'm in Vegas Caesars is paying out a blackjack 6:5. When did this bullshit start?

it was happening 5 years ago on the strip casinos.  it has become pretty prevalent all over Vegas. 

 

googling 3:2 blackjack payouts vegas comes up with articles from 2010 saying Harrahs started the trend after they got the Las Vegas gaming commission to change the payout rules. 

 

also as sooner posted last year, El Cortez still does single deck 3:2

Ironically harrahs still has one good table. Got up 600 hit a bit up a lull and I was the only one playing. Got up to take a piss and stretch the legs. Came back and they had shut it down. Oh well quick 500 profit.

It's like they don't make enough money ramping up the table minimums from $5 - $15 or $25 that they have to fuck you in the ass dropping the blackjack odds as well.

I forget the exact odds, but between going to 6:5 on blackjack and hitting soft 17, the house edge on blackjack has gone from roughly 0.5% if you play perfect basic strategy to somewhere around 4.0%.  In other words, it's no more beatable than a slot machine.  Like Lurch, I quit playing blackjack when they made these changes.  And that sucks because blackjack can be really fun.

If you go down in the pit, it is 3:2.  Those tables around the outside are all 6:5 now.

You can find 3/2 in almost any strip casino, but it's going to be a $25 or $50 min.

But even those are still dealer hit soft 17, aren't they?
