Just read online that Binions is doing "throwback Thursdays" or something to that effect offering $1 blackjack from noon - midnight. Think this is good for business?

Curious as to what the limits are on a $1 min game? $25/50 max????

Or, like others, is there a .25 Ante per hand? And who exactly wants to deal with the other players at a $1 table?

I used to play the $1 (no .25 ante) tables at Sahara.

The entertainment value of the reactions when you split tens or double down on a BJ is huge.

I'm positive there's no ante and that it's a 6:5 game. Well, pretty sure anyway.

I think 1 dollar BJ is absurd and I am a low roller.
3 should be lowest and BJ should pay 3/2

Being a low roller, I would rather play 3 min with 3/2 then 1 min and 6/5

At $1, I highly doubt it's 6:5, either even money or 5:4, or 3:2.

If I was playing $1 a hand i would probably be tempted to deviate from basic strategy and split 10's etc...

Serious questions though. Say you wanted to try counting and decided to go spread $1-$10 based on the count. A.) is it a good idea to practice at a table like this. B.) think you'd get any heat at all your spreading 10 units? Part of me wants to be backed off just once in my life just for the experience and to share a laugh with family

They just offer it at one table. So a max of 6 people can play, but 50 show up. It's like that casino on the strip that offers 20X free odds (used to be 100X). They offer it at one table, and every other table game in the casino has terrible odds.

It's just a loss leader. It doesn't mean that Binion's is going down the tubes.
