    • Strip = Casinos on the main stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard (from Mandalay Bay to the Stratosphere)
    • West = The western part of Las Vegas
  • Decks: Number of decks used. The fewer the decks, the better the odds are for the player.

  • Soft 17: Indication of what the dealer does with a soft 17.

  • Double on anything:

    • No: Player can double only on 9, 10, 11.
    • Yes: Player may double on any 2 cards.
  • Double after Split: Indication of whether the player may double after a split, which he usually can in Las Vegas.

    1. Player may double on any 3 cards, except after splitting. Unlimited re-splitting, except aces may be split to a maximum of 3 hands only.

  • Footnotes: Indication of unusual rules.

  • Minimum: Minimum bet allowed.

  • Maximum: Maximum bet allowed.

  • House Edge: The ratio of the expected player loss to the initial wager. The Current Blackjack Newsletter is the source, and may differ slightly from my Blackjack House Edge Calculator. It is not that one of us is right or wrong, but that blackjack is a difficult game to analyze, and differences in methodology can play a minor effect on the results. Both sets of figures are good enough, in my opinion.
