I'm a Detroit area gambler.

I know if you google "Detroit blackjack" this thread comes up pretty quick.

I'd just like to pipe in and say that since the initial review was written a few years back, MGM has changed their standard BJ games from 8 decks to 6. The other rules are the same, H17, DAS, RSA, no surrender.

MotorCity has the same rules but with 8 deck shoes and some CSM tables. However, during slow periods they have a pit of $25 S17 tables that often get reduced to $15 minimums.

Still haven't made it to Greektown cause I inevitably end up going on a Tigers game day and they want $40 for me to park there.

Greektown: Main pit, all CSM(4D) except 2 shoe games. Both are 8D, S17, DAS, DOA, RSA, noLS. $10-$15. High limit is $25+, 6D, S17, DAS, DOA, noLS.



Greektown's main pit is S17? I need to finally get around to checking it out there.

Question: Can you get a passport card now without getting a passport as well? When i got mine, it was an add-on to the passport for an extra fee.



Yes, I believe you can now get the passport card separately. You will pay the $25 execution fee twice if you upgrade to a full passport at a later time. A card is $30+$25 fee, a passport is $110+$25 fee, but both together are $140+$25 fee (you only pay fee one time when getting them together).

The card, as you probably know, is strictly for driving to and from Canada or Mexico. I do not believe it is good for cruises.

It may be a false economy, as they are valid for ten years. If you decide to take a cruise or gamble in Panama on short notice, you will have to wait to secure your passport.

Greektown is ALL S17! But as I noted, only 2 shoe games the rest are 4 deck CSM's.



I've played the shoe game there the past couple of weekends. Can't believe I'd never been there before when I go to the MGM like every weekend! D'oh!

In every poker room I have been in, 7 card stud starts out with 4 or 5 playerS who actually play the game, but rapidly grows into a rock pile before dying.
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet
