Tuscany has a current promotion of a $100 bonus with 30 blackjacks within 30 days with $10 minimum average bet.

Assuming flat betting at $10, it effectively means being paid an additional $3.33 for every blackjack. Does this actually make the game a slight edge for the player?

Regards,

Rob

That does work out to player advantage unless it is 6:5 blackjack . What's more is it isn't that difficult to achieve as it requires only about 8 hours of play over 30 days.

Since a blackjack comes every 21 plays you should meet the requirement in 21*30=630 hands which should take about 8 hours. The $100 should be 15.87 cents per hand. Assuming you stick to the minimum of $10, that is 1.56% player advantage which should clear even the worst play. If you do it report back how much you were down when you won the $100.

I suspect that will be a popular promotion, and fill their 9 blackjack tables quickly. They have two craps tables if you have to wait, but you may want to go on off hours. Since it is a promotion you could make if you are visiting Tuscany and not a local there may be some guests that try it.

I don't have the bankroll for the Terrible's promotion, but I do for this one! Thanks for posting.

When I was at Tuscany a month or so ago, I befriended a guy doing this promotion. He lost like $800 and maybe 10 hour getting it? He was playing average basic strategy, so that's one reason he lost so much.

Does average basic strategy mean that he didn't really know basic strategy and made a lot of mistakes?

Yeah, I can't remember any specifics but I do remember shaking my head a few times (but not saying anything).

I wonder if they will let me play two $10 hands at one time. That way, I can maybe get the bonus in 4 hours.

I think it gets players in the door and it keeps them from opening their yaps about a five dollar table.

That is probably worth it to the casino. Even if they have to pay out on this, they are still getting alot of visitors. Once they discontinue the promotion... those visitors will still be in the habit of going to the Tuscany. They have been running this promotion since January, I believe.

Anyone suspicious about the Full Details in the Pit notice on their website. The details should be on the website too and if they are not, then something is probably being concealed.
