I've been lurking these forms trying to find out which PA casino has the best blackjack game. I haven't found anything conclusive so I decided to join and ask.
I'm more interested in which of these 3 casinos have the best blackjack game since they are closest. I've been to Valley Forge and wasn't feeling their 15$ 8 deck games.
Do they have six deck 15$ games during the week day/weekend mornings? I know parx has the live update but it doesn't give the specific stakes involved which I need to know. I don't want to drive 45 minutes to parx and find it only has 8 deck 15$ games. I've called and ask but have only gotten dopy operators who say yeah we have em. Thanks for any information you can give.

I was thinking PA regulates the rules; in other words, each casino would have the same game by law.

I've called Sands recently and their High Limit game is six decks, as opposed to eight. Hollywood wasn't on your list, but I have called them and their High-Limit game is still eight, but hand shuffled.

I haven't talked to the other two on your list. I'll try to call them at some point this evening, if I have time. If I have not posted in this thread again by 22:00 EST, then please bump it...but make sure to tell a joke or the bump is against the Rules!!!

Sands has a double deck game with a low house edge and late surrender.

Really the sands in Bethlehem PA has a double deck or the Sands in the LV? Yes the PA casino blackjack tables are all regulated by law regarding late surrender, Stay 17 but I'm not sure if the deck size is regulated by law. The valley forge casino had 6 deck games at their 50$ tables, but thats beyond my budget/skills right now.The Valley Forge Casino has a different type of licence it is a resort casino with different rules allowed.

Sands Casino in Las Vegas closed in 1996 to be replaced by Venetian, which is owned by Sands Corp.

Whenever anyone mentions Sands casino in regard to an open casino, they're talking about Bethlehem PA.

Hollywood:

This place sucks! There is no Free Play offer for new Members at this time, and HL BJ is still eight-decks, just hand-shuffled.

Sands:

Listen to the guys who have been there recently if they say there is a two-deck game, because I have not! What they gave me over the phone was HL is Six-Decks. $5.00 Free Play if you are a new sign-up w/ Player's Club.

Parx:

Best Free Play Offer. You get $10 FP if you are new to the player's club AND the HL BJ is 6-Deck, she even gave me, "About 75%," penetration. Can't verify the accuracy of that 75% over the phone, but that's what she said. Parx also hand-shuffles the 6-Decks at, "Some of the Tables."

Sugarhouse:

The Free Play offer is good, but only if you are playing Slots, anyway. $0 off the top, but 5x Points on any of your play. You also get a T-Shirt. The HL BJ is 6-Deck, all machine shuffled, couldn't get anything out of her on the deck penetration, acted like she didn't know what I was talking about. Charming British accent, quite alluring.
