It's like mostly 6:5 and the few 3:2 games they have are just H17, no DAS, no RSA, no Surrender.
It still hasn't been updated on the las vegas blackjack survey page. Is there some way to submit updates to that?

I think the few 3:2 tables that are DD and 6D have different rules. Believe 6d should still have at least DS and RSA.

What is the minimum bet to get that in a shoe? Is it in a high roller area only (if they even have one)?

Lucca, this is the BJ survey on the WoV, and it shows min bets and more for all games. Don't know about high roller games.

Consider sending updates to the wiz or any admin, like beachbumbabs or Mission146.

For an overall summary of games, see https://www.qfit.com/maps.shtml

Click on a state
Scroll down to the bottom to see a summary of games in that state
Click on a number of decks in the left doughnut and the right doughnut will show a breakdown of the rules for that selection

This is updated monthly. Rules have been fairly stable for the last few months, with a tiny worsening trend.

Folks,
If you get a server error, it is because the period at the end of the sentence is included in the link. Delete the period and you will connect to this most interesting BJ site.

I just spent the weekend at the GN. Here's how the BlackJack tables work. All the pits inside the casino play at 3-2. You might find a $5 table in the morning, or up to noon on the weekends, but otherwise it's going to be a $10 minimum. The only 6-5 tables are in the "party pit" that surrounds the pool area. The inferior odds are the price people pay to either be dealt cards by very young girls in near-swimwear or to gamble and not lose their pool chair. There is a shortage of shoes everywhere. It's mostly single and double deck. The VIP area has 3-2, RSA, DOS, and surrender. The minimum is $25-$50, depending on when you go, and you can get a shoe. I didn't use the high limit area though because the shoe table was empty and I don't like to play alone since it produces more hands per hour.

It was rough to get a table on Saturday night, but that's true of most casinos. The girls came by for drinks at a nice clip which was odd because, at the crap table, they were not to be found.

The Martingdale system always works perfectly until that one time that it doesn't.

Which of the several Golden Nugget casinos did you visit?

Vegas.

I've always been a strip snob but have to admit that I've reconsidered. I thought that the GN was as nice, albeit smaller, hote/casino as some on the strip. If you've never seen it, Freemont Street is a bit of a nuthouse, to say the least. On the other hand, I've seen people begging on the strip while using their IPads.

Nugget (Vegas) had its best BJ during the period that Timothy and Tom owned it, in 2004 or so. Before that it wasn't bad either in that they more or less wouldn't molest you if you jumped your bet a lot when the card count was good, at least not as long as you were a known regular player.

Once Landry's took over they implemented rules such as not allowing you to increase your bet by more than 3X whatever you bet the previous hand, or more than 3X what you bet the first hand of the deck/shoe. I noticed this same sort of thing going on at Binion's by the late 2000s, trying to keep you from varying your bet too much.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.
