Have anybody played a lot at Treasure Island in Vegas? I am planning to go there for blackjack and my BR is about 10k. I am wondering does TI care about large action in High Limit room? Does the pit pick up the phone very often when they see 1-8 or 1-10 spread?

You could play the $10 DD to $90 without much trouble, otherwise probably not. Or possibly a little shoe, you'd be fortunate to last 20 minutes in HL DD.

The #1 sweatiest casino on the strip with the exception of SLS. They might just skip the phone call, one of those places that Couldn't care less if they back off ploppies as long as they get the counters.

Sounds like not a perfect place to beat the game. Which casino wouldn't mind 1-8 spread on DD game?

I would also agree that $90 would be more acceptable as a big bet at a $10 game. At a $25 min game 1-6 is more reasonable and tolerated at a lot of stores.

TI used to have DD S17. But that was a while ago--not sure now.

I am assuming $90 would be one hand. I am thinking about two hands when the count increases or even three hands if the count becomes so favorable. Have anybody tried to play multi hands on DD game without too much attention?

Spreading to two hands, especially on DD, tends to draw heat in LV. If you want to play two hands I'd recommend play two off the top and drop to one if the count drops. When I look back at my notes from when I played LV regularly, most of my DD sessions were 20-30 minutes, but I was generally trying to play the same places weekly.

Does TI deal the cards in a shoe or not?

I couldn't find any other casinos on strip offering $25 on DD game. Anyone knows if there are similar casinos would do that? Or $10 DD with about 0.4% house edge?

I played the TI $25 DD S17 game dealt from a shoe in the beginning of the year. Used cover betting and cover play. Was spreading $25-200 single handed with one other player at the table. My session was about an hour. I thought it was fun. Pit was eying how I played my soft-18 vs 4....(I stood). If I decide to go to Vegas again to play, I would only play downtown since it would be better value for a smaller bankrolled player like myself. Most the games on the Strip were $100 minimum double decks and $25 min 6 deck with full tables. Silver Sevens has low minimum double deck and 6 deck; checks play was called on me like 3 times but nothing happened.
