What are the minimums looking like now for 3:2 shoes on the strip and Fremont? I heard a few months ago that many of the strip casinos had $50 mins for 3:2. Is that still the case? I assume Fremont still has an abundance of 15s and 25s.

When I was there late October, CET properties typically had 3:2 for $25. Ballys had it for $15 daytime with surrender. MGM properties I saw (including Excalibur and Luxor) were all 6:5 at least up to $25, possibly higher. Park MGM told me only 3:2 in high limit. Downtown had $10 3:2 at a few places, including Cal. This all may be changed now.

As of a couple weeks ago this was all still accurate. I'll add that wynn, venetian and sahara are $100 minimum of higher to get 3:2. I'll look around again next week and if I see anything different I'll report back.

I’m reminded of my only time playing blackjack here, about 2004. Won about $1,400 in 40 minutes in their high limit room playing $25 min, 3:2, S17 game.

Card Counting at Wynn Casino in Las Vegas
Wynn Casino in Las Vegas is a place where high rollers fill the tables. This helps to hide large bets when counting cards. However, keep in mind that Wynn blackjack games use RFID chips that can track player activity. This can potentially be used to correlate your betting to the count and expose your card counting. The 6-deck blackjack games at Wynn don’t deal very deep, so you’re better off sticking to the double deck. I would recommend either playing anonymously or using very heavy cover if you’re getting rated on a players card.

This thread is about blackjack conditions in the post-lockdown era, that article is 4 years old. Safe to assume it's no longer accurate.

You are new here. That explains your confusion. Thread titles have a relevant shelf life of about four posts. At which point the thread has devolved into one of about a half dozen totally unrelated topics that have absolutely nothing to do with either Las Vegas, gambling, or. often, reality.

When browsing, don't rely on the title of a thread to be indicative of anything once it's more than a few days old.

That a cited article is obsolete is also par for the course. You'll note that many of the subtopics referencing specific Las Vegas casinos are also very old. It is also "safe to assume... [they are] no longer accurate."

A few years ago this forum was timely, valuable, and current, with interesting, often accurate posts from many different members.
