5 New Table Games in Las Vegas for 2019.

There are five new table games in Las Vegas for 2019.
Vegas is a tough climate to launch a new game. Most do not make it past the first year.
The new games I discovered during my 2019 Las Vegas Table Game Survey range from dominoes placed on cards to new poker games to a new blackjack variant.
The minimum bet for these games is usually $5. However, some require more than one bet to get into action.
Below, I cover all the new games in the Las Vegas market, including details of where to find them and how to play.

Casino Dominoes
Casino Dominoes is available at Plaza in Downtown Las Vegas.
The game is played with cards that have domino symbols on them to represent two standard sets. It’s entirely luck-based...
MATH at Wizard of Odds:

Heads Up Hold’em
Heads Up Hold’em is like Ultimate Texas Hold’em. In fact, it replaced several Ultimate Texas Hold’em installations in Las Vegas.
It is found at Jerry’s Nugget, M Resort, Rampart, and Stratosphere. The minimum bet is $5. However, players must make two $5 wagers to get into action and have at least $5 more to complete the action, though it is recommended to have $15 to make a three-times raise on the ante...
MATH at Wizard of Odds:

Four Card Frenzy
Four Card Frenzy is available at Santa Fe Station. It is essentially Crazy4Poker with a couple of rule modifications.
A bad beat bonus is added to the blind bet, called odds in Four Card Frenzy. The player loses the blind bet if the dealer does not qualify and the player’s hand loses to it. In Crazy4Poker, that is a push. This generally does not come up if the proper strategy is followed...
MATH at Wizard of Odds:

Flushes Gone Wild
Flushes Gone Wild is spread at Golden Nugget in Downtown Las Vegas. It is like the now-defunct Chase the Flush game that was found at Luxor and Silverton last year. It crosses Ultimate Texas Hold’em with High Card Flush.
Players get dealt five cards, and there is a two-card community set in the middle of the table. Deuces are wild.
The only hand that matters is the flush. A deuce becomes the highest card missing from the player’s flush. There is an ante and blind bet, like there is in Ultimate Texas Hold’em. The player may bet two times the ante or fold...
MATH at Wizard of Odds:

Down Under Blackjack
Down Under Blackjack is offered by Excalibur on the Las Vegas Strip. It has a $10 minimum bet. It pays 6:5 and has a house edge of about 2%. This is reason enough to walk by it and play the $15 3:2 table right next to it.
The deck is color coded to differentiate between a low, middle, or high card. Deuces through fives are blue and considered small. Red cards are six to nine and considered middle cards. Tens, faces, and aces are gold and considered high.
The dealer uses an electronic card reader to determine whether the card is low, middle, or high. The colors of the cards otherwise have no meaning to the player. Players may use this information to play their hands...
