My friend from Texas is going to Las Vegas next weekend, with the plan of playing $5/hand BJ with 3:2 rules. I told him that there will probably be zero tables available.

1) it's Las Vegas
2) it's the weekend

Today I wanted to do the same here in downtown Reno and found zero $5 BJ 3:2 tables. There was one seat at a $10 table at Silver Legacy. El Dorado never has $5 3:2 BJ. Circus Circus removed their 3:2 video BJ game and replaced it with 6:5. So if it's zero in Reno (in three casinos on The Row), I would guess it's going to be zero in all of Las Vegas.

What do you guys think?

TI does have $5 3/2 blackjack sometimes, but you're going to have to go between 7-9AM when it isn't busy. They have $10 most of the day/evening.

There are those stadium gaming outfits -- I think TI and the Venetian both have them -- that have $5 blackjack. I've never played it though.

TI has $5 3:2 on slow weekdays. Ellis Island casino has $5 3:2 table 24/7. Longhorn casino has $2 3:2 blackjack, but itís a bit of a drive. Thatís pretty much all I can think of.

Pretty easy to find $10 3:2 for Double Deck or Shoe games. $5 is a little tougher.

If your friend's main reason for going to Vegas is indeed to play $5 3/2 bj, tell him to grab his red chips and head to the Boulder Strip.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Walked through the table games area tonight. Three open seats at the four $5 blackjack tables around 8:00. And that's just one casino out of about 50. Night time will be crowded, but should be able to find a seat. Early in the day, won't be any problem at all.

Said originally it was 8:00, just before the last drawing of the night, so the absolute busiest time. Any other time there will be even more seats open, in the "wee hours" can often find a $5 table completely empty. It was at Aliante, city of North Las Vegas, not Las Vegas, but the second or third most expensive off-strip casino built in the entire valley (along with Red Rock and GVR), so very good representative of any Boyd or Station's. Never knew Reno had such a scarcity of $5 blackjack. But Las Vegas has more than enough to go around even on the weekends

oh yeah.
I forget that place.
Used to have itsown twitter feeds in English and Spanish.

Its Big Strip, Little Strip, Downtown, .... with NLV being a separate official compilation but so few casinos that a sneese can change the stats.

I went to NLV to play the don'ts my first trip to Vegas. Mismatched cartridge shells in the parking lot. I left broke in just a few minutes.
Aliente brought the place up but it is still bottom feeder's paradise. no frills means more money for the player which is good.

Las Vegas valley is over 400 square miles with thousands of miles of roads, The Strip is about three miles and downtown is about one city block. When looking in only one very small area it might be hard to find a $5 table. When looking at the entire region, there are hundreds of those tables -- and even at the busiest times plenty will have open seats
