I am going to Vegas in January and was checking the BJ Survey to decide where to stay and it looks like all of the Caesars properties have low limit 3/2 BJ while all the MGM properties are 6/5. If I remember correctly it was the other way around a few years ago. Is it true that Caesars changed 6/5 table back to 3/2? If so it doesn't seem like anyone gives them much credit for going against the trend.

3/2? Hmmmm.... not at Harrahs from what I remember. I don't pay attention to BJ especially in Vegas but not all Caesars properties. I am surprised that Caesars offer it given their financial situation. MGM is on a stingy stickler tear with everything so not surprised they would pull something like this. Like all other Vegas establishments. Yet all these poor souls flock to these tables like bees to honey. Throw in some eye candy dealers and a so-called Pleasure Pit all common sense out the door!

I was in Vegas last July, all the CET props had 6/5 up to even a 25 min on some tables.

There are many BJ tables here in Vegas and they don't even display the payout numbers! How bout them apples! I am telling you the folks who flock to these tables don't even know they are being ripped off so dearly.

Caesars has much better blackjack than MGM now. You can get a $25 game in Bally's high limit with what used to be called "liberal strip rules" (LS DAS S17 RSA), and a $25 double deck 3-2 pitch game at Harrahs.

Decent low limit 3:2 games at Bally's-Paris-PHo

Isn't the Blackjack pay-out always printed on the felt ? ? ?

Gotta say SHAME SHAME SHAME on the Casinos then. And ditto for the Gaming Commission.

I have gravitated more to VP vs BJ over the years. Mrs Q has gravitated more toward Slots ( yeah, I know, SHAME SHAME SHAME ! ).

But it is, and probably always has been methinks, a big game, Player vs Casino regarding comps. Slots players get better comps. I get to play what I want. Mrs Q plays what she wants. But I keep a watchful eye on how much money Mrs. Q has to play with.

I believe if it's not on the felt they must have a sign below the table limits that says "Blackjack pays 6:5" or something. I don't think I can recall coming across a table that literally didn't have it displayed at all.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I've seen plenty of tables in Vegas, particularly Caesars properties, where there is no felt making or sign on the table. And yes, this was while it was open and people playing.
