Hi,
I recently moved to East Coast and I am searching for a good player favorable casino for BJ. My online research says that Sands at Bethlehem has double deck and good good six deck games. I went there 3 weeks ago in a weekend and was very disappointed to find that they have only 8 deck games with table minimum from $25 to $100 on Saturday afternoon. Can anyone please tell me the best east coast casinos for BJ?
I was browsing internet and also found that casinos in wendover NV offer excellent single deck. I never played single deck with 3:2, and i would like to play. Can someone please confirm about this as well.
I apologize if my English is not good. I recently moved to USA from a non English speaking country.

All PA casinos play by the same rules, which are state law:

Blackjacks will be paid off at 3-to-2.

Dealer must stand on soft 17.

Players may double down on any two cards.

Doubling after splitting pairs is allowed.

Late surrender is allowed.

Pairs may be split to a maximum of three hands; aces may not be re-split.

Basic strategy gives a house advantage of .33% .

I believe that aces can be resplit. I know for sure they can
at Sands in Bethlehem

I wondered why some PA casinos don't allow ace re-splitting.

This PA pdf sheds some light on the question. See § 633a.11. Splitting pairs, which says:

Quote: Gaming Control Board

A certificate holder shall specify in its Rules Submission required under § 601a.2 (relating to table games Rules Submissions) the number of additional times a patron may split pairs, including aces.



So it appears that the casino submits its optional rules choices to the state for approval.

I have a friend who is a BJ junkie, lives in Connecticut where there are two huge casinos, Foxwoods and Mohegun Sun. Just like you, he likes to play the $5-$10 tables, not that he bets that low all the time, but when the dealer is on a run, he likes to weather the storm by betting the low limits. When he's hot, he'll bet up to $100 a hand. For him, a trip out west, Reno has paid dividends for him. Generous comps and always free rooms. He usually flies out on Jet Blue out of JFK and gets a RT ticket for $200-$250. Really those are his only expenses. A trip out to Vegas or Reno would be your best bet.
