Oops, I was wrong. I just looked at my old Mirage cards with the smaller font and all the numbers are in the exact same place (even the aces). 10s and face cards aren't any higher.

I'm not sure why these new rules they've established mean they can't use the automatic BJ sensors anymore and need the dealers to check with the mirrors now.

Anyway, this is a depressing trend. MGM properties BJ conditions are almost getting worse than CET.

Mirage does use the electronic sensors.



Yes I know. But the earlier post indicated that they've gotten new cards and stopped using them.

The new Iphone wristwatches are the way to take advantage of these cards and casinos.

Just back from trip. First time posting here in a long time.

Anyway, played a LOT of switch for the first time. Think it may be my new favorite game. Played at ny ny, and logged many late hours at royale (fun crowd there). Also played some free and like this as well. These new games I think are a lot more fun for the casual visitor.

Lmk if anyone has any questions on what I saw. Great games, both!

No. Your hand is fully a 21, and of course, a probable winner on the double down.

The rule change does not assign you or anyone the "worse" value on a soft hand. A soft final hand is always considered at its best possible value. The rule change simply extends the ability to Free Double on soft hands of 19, 20, and 21, if you wish.


In the interests of full disclosure, I believe there are some single-deck games out there that will allow you to double an A8/A9/A10 hand, but then you automatically give up the possibility of the Ace counting as 11 in that hand, because you can only double on 9-10-11. So if you choose to double, you are essentially declaring that hand as a 9, 10, or 11 for better or for worse.

Again, not saying this is the case for this specific Free Bet table as clarified by Dan. But this circumstance does exist on some "restricted double" single deck games.

Thanks for the feedback ruascott - encouraging that you liked both Switch and Free Bet as they are both very different even though both games use the 'Push 22' rule.

Did you play Free Bet at NYNY?

Yes and at casino royale I believe.

Are either games offered anywhere in Indiana?
