Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't every casino in the world offer this opportunity? Or do you mean I get to bet THEIR money?

If I were allowed to split up the bet, I'd put $236 on black, $236 on red, and $14 on each zero. If not, I'd probably put it all on Odd or Even. I wouldn't play blackjack, even though the house edge is lower, because I might have to double down or split.

I'd hate to get a BJ hand where correct strategy is split or double and it be able to do it, so I vote roulette.

Of course, the real question is: Why is this in the Craps forum?

Because it is a crappy question. The questioner must certainly own a hat !

$500 of someone else's money, and it's 29 and all the corners.

$500 of my own and I'll be playing Blackjack, slowly.

sorry about asking a question about roulette or blackjack in a craps forum but as a craps player i want to know how my craps friends would play other table games under certain circumstances. The 500 is of course the casinos money so you arent risking anything. however you do get a chance to find the best way to win against two popular games. by getting input about other peoples strategies i can decide which game i would decide to play in that situation.

sorry i should have clarified that it is their money and you get a one shot deal at winning on either game.

BJ. Be happy to double because you have +EV. You can avoid splitting, if the split was -EV if its a +EV split be happy.

Desert Inn was the first place to send me a $500 free chip bet, good until you lose. Played BJ.

Never touched a BJ game in the place before that. They had 9/6 $5 VP 1% card and other things.

The proper play is to bet $13 ($500/38) on each number, straight up, on roulette. It is the most +EV, assuming you get only one shot and are using someone else's money.
