This has probably been asked before, but where are the best games on the strip/downtown for a lowroller with a roughly $200 session bankroll playing no more than $10 per hand.

Note this is recreational blackjack with sessions probably lasting no more than an hour or until the roll is gone using simple basic strategy.

Its for Mrs Croupier. She likes blackjack, but doesnt play for long.

Hmmm....KewlJ mentioned that Eastside Cannery is one of his favorite places to play, and Mrs. Croupier is certain to enjoy the beautiful interior courtyard at Sam's Town, extremely serene. On top of that, there is a mini-casino across the street from Eastside (it's either Longhorn or Bighorn, one of the two) at which you can Double-After-Hit, so you can essentially Double when you already have three cards, which is a fun twist. That and special Rules for either suited BJ's or BJ's in Diamonds.

I would definitely suggest that game if you would like Mrs. Croupier to remain entertained at BJ longer, it's a fun rule variation.

Also, the buffet at Eastside Cannery is excellent for the price, and if you go to their website and sign up for WebPass, one account for you and one for the Mrs., you can each get enough points for a free buffet basically just by logging in and spending about three minutes (each) on the site every day for twenty days.

The machines at Eastside Cannery are also spread out very nicely over the casino floor, plenty of room to walk, reasonable amount of space between Table Games...very comfortable atmosphere.

If you are staying Downtown, you can take the Free Shuttle from Fremont to Sam's Town...if you are on the Strip, you can take the Free Shuttle from Harrah's to Sam's Town.

Although, if you do want to do that, you could always stay a night at Sam's Town or Eastside Cannery and take the shuttle there and to return the next day. One of those places should also have a free airport shuttle, so you might make that your first night and then go to Strip/Downtown on the shuttle for the rest of your stay.

Great Plan Mission. I will definitely look into that. Will probably make it a midweek night once we are acclimatised.

EDIT And seen as we are not visiting until August 2015 gives me plenty of time to rack up points :D

Im already hitting the Mlife Facebook slots to try and grind the points on that, so ill just add the eastside into my repertoire.

Sounds good, I hope you have a great trip and enjoy Eastside Cannery, I'm personally very impressed with the value at that property. Make sure to get your LVA and ACG if you will be hitting many places, anyway...next year's editions, anyway.
