Well, it wasn't unexpected, but it's still kinda sad. Casino Royale was the last holdout in Vegas for having the rule that a switched blackjack in BJ Switch gets paid immediately. I went there today to discover this is no longer the case.

So if you're a fan of this game, there is no longer any reason to visit CR. Actually, I would say there's no real reason for anyone to visit CR. (Yeah, OK, 100x odds at craps, but for my bankroll size it's nothing more than a gimmick.)

Slumming ;)

Usually I duck inside a bit to cool off while heading elsewhere. First trip I stayed long enough to get a player card and "fun book," I think I even played some VP and Switch BJ. Since then, just the free A/C

$1 Michelobs and Daquiris if you want a cheap drink and don't want to gamble or tip.

But thanks for the report. They've eviscerated their funbook, too. Shame on CR.

(ie: BJ pays instantly)
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

Amazing how many casinos still subscribe to "Open the doors and let the suckers in" .
But 6:5 BJ players prove them right. To say nothing of banks of 7:5 JBVP machines
adjacent to 8:5 banks getting more action.

It may increase your cost, but I usually get 4 of the $1 Ritas (2 each my wife and I), give the guy a $2 tip and after that he always serves me first. I can be at the end of the line and he calls me up. Just shows that most dont tip on the $1 drinks.
Never gamble there, just stop in on a strip walk.

When I was playing Switch at CR last summer the 'switched 21 is not a natural' rule was in effect but in addition they would not let me double a switched 21 which i found odd. Since it was not a natural I would think i could double, hit, whatever I want to do. I got the floor to call upstairs and they confirmed the ruling. Lame.
