I got a Greektown mailer yesterday.

I noticed they're advertising "$10 Blackjack, 24/7" now.

I've been there several times when the minimums were $15-$20 with no $10 tables in sight.

I'm guessing that maybe they keep at least one table at $10 all day long now. Makes me wonder how long it will be til they change some of them to 6-5. Cause once a casino starts advertising low table limits, it seems like 6-5 BJ is never far behind.

Finally took a venture over to MGM and Greektown, didn't stay long at either place though. MGM was very nice and spacious inside. Played Crazy 4 for a bit, which was a nice break from the usual Four Card I play. Ended up about even. Went to Greektown afterwards. I've seen people describe it as dirty and dingy, sure enough, that's what it was. I found it curious that they only let you put $1 on the Bad Beat Bonus in Four Card. Anyways, played that for a bit, played some blackjack (got killed there), and left.

Now that Greektown's BJ is all H17, I really have absolutely no reason to go there anymore. The long walk from their parking garage to the casino just seems too daunting to me now. lol

I had a great session at the MGM on Saturday. I only broke even, but there were these two crazy 20-something girls at my table who made it a blast (I mean "crazy" in the best way possible, not a bad way). Whenever they got a perfect pair they'd get up and start twerking, Miley Cyrus-style. They also played perfect basic strategy, which was surpising. For people who gamble for "the entertainment," they definitely provided it for the table.

Did they double A,8 vs 6 and A, 7 vs 2? Or was it the $25 S17 tables?



I don't think those hands ever came up. lol

And it was just a standard $15 H17 perfect pairs table.

Went to the MGM again last night. The 21+3 table was $10 for most of the night while most of the other tables were $20 so that's where I played. It was up and down at first but near the end we had some really good shoes. When the new dealer came in at 8pm we were doing really good. There were some guys betting $50-$100 on the 3 card side bet. Oy vey. The dealer goes, "You guys have just won like 9 hands in a row, why are you pressing the side bet and betting the minimum on BJ?!" I couldn't help but laugh.

Despite me saying two posts ago that there's no reason for me to go to Greektown anymore, I stopped in on Saturday.

I didn't look too closely, but it seems like they got rid of one of their two low limit shoe games and replaced it with a handicap accessible CSM table. They may have just moved it. I don't know.

I noticed a bunch of Blackjack tables now have two betting spots for each player, similar to MotorCity. I wonder if they still expect you to double the minimum to play both spots.

I had a good session at a "King's Bounty" table. Yikes what a sucker bet that is. One guy next to me kept constantly whipping out hundred dollar bills and wasn't hitting anything. He finally got two kings of spades with $10 on the bet, which paid 100-1 for $1000. Of course this convinced everyone at the table that it was this amazing bet and they started pressing. Yeesh.

I'm new to the Detroit casino video poker scene. I was looking around vpfree's site and it looks like there was some full pay jacks or better games at Motor City. I went down on March 31st and couldn't find anything of that nature. The best I could find for JOB was paytables under 99%. Discouraged I went back home and found this thread. It sounded like there may be some full pay on the multi line games or on the spin poker games so I headed back down today to find the diamond in the rough. No such luck still. Maybe they changed the machines up recently (they're definitely not laid out like vpfree had listed anymore). Can anyone confirm that there are still full pay JOB machines at Motor City? If not, is there any full pay machines at Motor City for Greektown (It seems pretty certain that MGM is fruitless) that one could get above 100% with cashback/bounceback/rewards play? I tried to look 99.64% bonus deluxe as listed on vpfree but couldn't find that either. I couldn't even locate WHA let alone 99.57% WHA. While I didn't get a change to touch every single machine, I did look at every type of machine to no avail on both floors. I thank you in advance!
