Sorry to interrupt all the political name-calling with a Blackjack gaming question, but perhaps someone who knows the answer can take a few minutes to respond.

A friend found the Beau Rivage casino in Biloxi paying 2-to-1 when the player wins with a natural blackjack. This was on a $10 table using a 6-deck shoe. About half the $10 tables offered the 2-to-1 payout, and the rest offered 3-to-2 payouts. He didn't recall all the other game details, like Dealer play on 17 or split-limitations. The game details for the 3-to-2 blackjack were probably different than for the 2-to-1 blackjack.

Question: Does anyone know what the game details were for the 2-to-1 blackjack game at the Beau? I told my friend I would check. Any help appreciated.

(...wondering if LV casinos pay 2-to-1, because, y'know, they're so player friendly)

If it's really 2 :1 with no catches you would be many days late and many dollars short.

Who said I was going to play blackjack?

I said I would check out the tables for the OP

Truthfully blackjack is just not profitable enough for me to waste my time on

Unlikely at any property. Extremely unlikely at an MGM owned joint.

Confirmed. I just phoned Beau Rivage and was told it never does -- and never has -- offered 2:1 payout on any of its BJ games.

Not sure what kind of brain fart my friend suffered, but -- whether he did get 2:1 or not -- don't expect to see it when you go to the Beau.

Ya, I know, those stupid 2:1 blackjack promotions are just dumb and worthless, who needs an extra 1/2 unit every 21 hands and why would the most feared EC AP want to mess with that?

You should defiantly add that to your book.


Here are some more great chapters for you given your post history.
Don't hate, my bus is late.
Why I think 2:1 BJ is worthless compared to riding the bus promos.
Why I think 1k jackpot bonuses are worthless compared to riding the bus promos.
28% jackpot bonuses, they might be good, or not, but who needs them?

Video BJ 2 FOR 1??? Even money =2 FOR 1 (-;

Don't worry, if they ever did have a 2:1 Blackjack promo it would last forever considering the most feared EC AP doesn't have time for that BS.
