Don't know about 4% commish at the Cosmo but I do know they offer EZ Bac there


Which tables at the Cosmo? I haven't played bac there in a while, but I recall only 2 bac tables outside of high limit. Neither was EZ bac. (I don't recall any in high limit either)

No idea if Cosmo offered 4% commish. I was replying to gr8player's inquiry. The last time I was there was around last March and they had only two baccarat tables that were EZ bac. Things might have changed. I remember they had a total of 5 when they first opened and dealers were much friendlier. There were two high limit bac but I remember they are near the cashier and near the entrance nestled to the right as you enter.

I was going to drop by there last December but I caught a nasty cold/cough while on the plane so I just stuck to my home casino of the Wynncore. Plus I was only there for two days so my time was extremely limited.

Thanks again, D-man.

No doubt...the best thing about LV is the "free hands". I don't bet every hand...scratch that...not even nearly every hand, so the "free hands" option suits me and my style of play absolutely perfectly.

I do, as well, prefer the EZ Bac game over the alternative standard game.

So any hotel offering the free hands combined with the EZ Bac alternative would, obviously, be my first choice to visit/stay.

For EZ Bac. I think Mandalay Bay has them along with Cosmo. But Mandalay Bay is on the northern tip of the Strip. I remember they had around 5 tables at $25 minimum. With Vegas things can change. Harrahs had them around 2010/2011 but had since removed them because folks hate it.

EZ Bac is not very popular in Vegas because of folks betting big amounts. Pair Bets and Ties side bets are very very popular there.

If you are not planning to rent a car strongly recommend that you get that bus pass for $7 for the day or $21 for three days. Your feet will thank you.

I think your map is upside down.

I probably will wind up renting a car, mainly because I do it almost every week and so I get pretty sweet deals from Enterprise.

I'm leaning toward the Aria Hotel/Casino for my stay.

But because I'm asking no favors (read: not seeking any room comps), I'll be free to play wherever I feel most comfortable.

That said, I just might stay at the Cosmopolitan if I find that they definitely have the EZ Bac games, because I'm now honing in on either the Aria, Cosmopolitan, or Vdara.

Aria is an amazing casino/hotel. Great casino too. One caveat is the layout and set up of the whole place. It is nestled in the back of the City Center. Kinda tough to navigate at first so familiarize yourself. The first time I was there I developed four very painful blisters on my feet!

If you have any questions gr8 regarding bac in Vegas please don't hesitate to ask.

Blah! Thanks. I meant southern tip. Northern tip is the Wynncore and further.

Sure enough. I'm sure that before I actually book this September trip I'll be picking your brain for more of your helpful insights/suggestions.

Thanks again, D-man.

Getting back to this post, when exactly did you see EZ bac tables at the Cosmo? I was there last night, and there were none. (Don't recall any over the past couple years either)
