Just thought I would pass this article along.

WHERE TO FIND THE BEST ODDS FOR BLACKJACK.

We're always looking for gambling advantages. While we may never play perfect strategy, we try to play close to perfect and any little extra edge we can gain playing at a certain casino we gladly welcome.

We play a lot of blackjack (note: you need to play $25 hands to earn players club points in Vegas), particularly when our friends want to play. Casinos all have different rules, different ways to shuffle and different numbers of cards to play with and because of that most casinos have a different edge. One of our favorite gambling resources, Wizard of Odds, took all of this into consideration and came up with their blackjack rankings based on the different variations, such as Blackjack Switch, Spanish 21, Super Fun 21, and everyone's favorite (sic) 6-5 blackjack.

Below, you'll find a breakdown of Strip properties. Note that most, if not all, blackjack under $25 at MGM Resorts properties (Aria, Bellagio, etc.) is dealt with a continuos shuffle machine which we hate almost as much as 6-5 blackjack payouts, even if they don't increase house edge.

There shouldn't be many surprises on this list especially since we know Caesars Entertainment properties have the worst rules of any casinos. Caesars Palace has mostly $25 tables so their house edge isn't as bad as O'Sheas, Imperial Palace and Bill's which all prey on lure cheap gamblers.

Having said all this, we're just happy to see some of our favorite places to play blackjack (Palazzo and El Cortez) are some of the casinos with the lowest house edges.

To see the rankings for Downtown and Off-Strip hotels, head to Wizard of Odds. Once you give them a glance over, remember to come back and tell us how your favorite casino stands up.

You know the Wiz' feelings about copying entire articles from other sources...

However, this line is significant:

seems to me that the WoO site needs to more prominently push WoV's forums. Just sayin'....

When he has a list of casinos which are worth while beating, let me know.
Why bet at all, if you can be sure? Anyway, what constitutes a "good bet"? - The best slots-game in town; a sucker's edge; or some gray-area blackjack-stunts? (P.S. God doesn't even have to exist to be God.)
