RECENT: Station Casinos changed all their tables.
- Rarely any $5 3:2 2x deck. Even if you go to Fiesta!
- More $10 6:5 2x deck.
- Checks play/green action calls for $50 bets even when playing at a $10 table. No more 1-10 spread on $10 table.
- Less kings bounty and lucky ladies side bets. +4 count. Boss gets suspicious.
- Higher ROR when playing $25/$15 tables.
When you do play on a favorable table, it's so busy, it's a total waste of your time. Only chance is to play at odd hours! HA!
El Cortez is so strict now. It's not worth your time.
SP and Silverton have poor penetration. Busy tables. Higher limits.
Play in Henderson at Jokers Wild or Club fortune and any green chip gets called.
Playing at Eastside and CAN have poor penetration. busy and few tables. $10 min. Never liked it. Station Casinos were my go-to bc it was so abundant.
I occasionally check the $5 3:2 at Silverton, but it is packed. When I do play there, dealers usually checks play anything over $30 if you start at $5.
I always short session. Its the only way here.
I loved Station Casinos bc the penetration was so predictable and better than other casinos bc the discard tray has a notch. I probably played with your bro at one point haha. M and Aliante have poor penetration too. dealer places cut at a little over 50%. +4 at most, with 1.5%HE....starts to become time consuming (venting). No pit boss will ever comp players like us bc they know exactly how we roll.
Yea. Playable tables are so busy now, I feel it's not worth the time! You do a 1-12 spread on a $5 playable busy table, and make $8/hr! Only playing you against dealer or dealer against 2 are the only way to go. BC of the SPEED! That has gone away bc of the change.
In hindsight, a few months ago, I do occasionally like to play $25 min. The only $25 table I play was Mirage bc it was 2x deck stand 17. I surveyed the table for a couple months and it's gone. I even check at off-ball times. $50 min 2x deck hit 17.
That's why you can't play favorable tables anymore unless you play El Cortez $25 min or go to any MGM prop and play $100 min.
