We all talk about Las Vegas and other surrounding areas...but what about Laughlin? I'd like to find out more about this so called "Low Roller" paradise and all of it's "glory". How are the Blackjack games currently there? Which Casino's have given you the most (or least) heat? Which Casino's offer the best rules/penetration/etc? Last but not least: which Casino's let you spread the most or gave you the least attention from the pit?

So there you go...have at it!

They suck, all of them. Double deck and even shoe games with NDAS. If a single deck specialist, riverside does have lots of 3:2 single deck D10-11 only. Have to do your own homework on the pen.

If you're not 65+, you'll stick out like a sore thumb.

I have a Blackjack pays 2:1 coupon for the Pioneer Club that I've had for a decade. They told me over the phone about 5 years ago that it is good up to table limit. Can you imagine playing hand after hand of table-limit blackjack for an hour and never getting the snapper? Oh the humanity!

What's the table limit? Does the coupon still work (not expired)?

Ha ha ha a couple of players told me the same thing. They say the only way for a young counter (AGES 28 AND UNDER) to avoid suspicion is to just stay in the Arcades. (Don't no one take that wrong now!)


But with Pro's come Con's. Take the following I heard from fellow counters with a Grain of Salt:


Riverside pays 3-2 on their Blackjacks with table minimums ranging from $5 to $25 and don't sweat $5 spreads from 1-10 on shoe games. (Yet flinch when $25 are in action...unless you look like an ol' fool.)

Aquarius is doing their little 6-5 payouts and yet have low heat.

Edgewater and Colorado seem unguarded and have good penetration on their DD games.

Tropicana seems to be okay until you start bet spreading randomly without camo. Pit Bosses seem easily distracted by TV's and anything with curves though.

Pioneer seemed to have gotten more sweaty and will follow you if suspected of counting...okay then.

Golden Nugget does their 6-5 as well with meh penetration...but the "Eye in the Sky" sure likes to phone in a lot. (Is this Deal or No Deal Howie!?!)

Harrah's seems more friendly to the youth...but also does 6-5.


But I still like to hear what other's have to say. Keep em' coming guys!

I don't know what the table limit is now, and the coupon has no expiration date printed on it. That's what intrigued me to call and ask if the coupon was still good and what's the max bet that could be made with the coupon. Answer: It's good. Table limit.

But that was 5 years ago. Perhaps things have changed.

If I ever go back to Laughlin, it will be going with me. They used to have SD, H17, 3:2 blackjack at the Pioneer, Laughlin Golden Nugget, Flamingo, Colorado Belle (double down 10 & 11) and the Edgewater. This was 12 years ago. I don't think they have any 3:2 SD in Laughlin now.

I might play $100 min if the coupon is still good.

Or if their DD is hand shuffled (like most are) you could just ace sequence. I've got to figure that would at least narrow down your range to a limited number of hands/max table bets =P.

Hell, on Double deck, I could even shuffle track an ace or two to a quarter of a deck or less. Play hard on that 'slug'.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
