First off, it's Cache Creek, not "Cashe Creek". Here's the casino website.

Now that's strange...
The TV commercials, as well as the billboard on Interstate 680, say that it's 3-2, S17 - but the information card on the website says that all games (single deck, double deck, 6D) are H17, and single deck is 6-5. 6D is RSA.

Pardon me for asking, but where do you live? Getting to Cache Creek is not particularly easy.

I saw the same commercials and billboards and wanted to see if they really changed their rules. I live in nor cal so getting there won't be a problem. Was trying to save a trip if the conditions are not favorable. With Graton being open I thought they would need to have a better game then before. If anyone has played there lately and can give the 411 on the blackjack games that would be appreciated. Thinking of going on Sunday.

Well, what do you expect with card craps? (At least I assume it's card craps; for all I know, it's RNG craps.)

I just got an E-mail from the "VP of Table Games" at Cache Creek, who assures me that all blackjack - SD, DD, and 6D - is S17 and 3-2. The "gaming card" may be old, and changes made in order to compete with other northern California tribal casinos (Graton, Jackson Rancheria, Thunder Valley).

How was your trip/what was your findings?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

The latest commercials don't mention S17 - instead, they're pushing "zero commission baccarat (they make up for the lack of commission by only paying 1-2 if the Bank wins with a total of 6) and pai gow" and what I assume is single-zero card roulette. The website now specifies S17 for all games in the High Roller area, but doesn't say what the conditions are in the main area; for all I know, all of the games in the main area are shoe/CSM-dealt.

Was there a few weeks back. It was all 6 deck, s17,ds,rsa, no surrender on main floor. Spanish is h17 with redouble. Pen is noneoyadambusness. A couple freebet tables. Carny pit had a disproportionately high number of uth tables. They may have had 6:5 single deck I don't recall.

Six-year-old bump...I had to be in the area anyway, so I took a trip to Cache Creek. The main problem with it is, it's about 15 miles of two-lane undivided road (i.e. one lane in each direction) from the freeway, and to make things worse, there is some construction right before you get to the casino (I think they're widening the road there) that closes one of the two directions for a few minutes. At least it doesn't charge for parking, despite there being a 5-level parking garage.

I stumbled into the High Limit Blackjack room - excuse me for assuming that a room with "BLACKJACK" in large letters was where all of the blackjack was played, without noticing where it said "High Limit" a few feet off to the right. Anyway, eventually I found it; I was expecting something more affordable than $15 for a shoe-dealt game (3-2, S17 - and unlike in Vegas, it actually says what a blackjack pays on the felt). There was one single-deck and one double-deck table open, and needless to say, they were mobbed, even at 9 AM, albeit 9 AM on Veterans Day when they were giving away Veterans Day T-Shirts with rewards points; the only other two tables open were shoes with the Blazing 7s side bet. It took me about 15 minutes to lose my $90 bankroll.

I searched for some 25c Jacks or Better VP, and finally found it; it was 8/5, which is still better than pretty much the entire Strip. I also managed to make $5 from my $20 free slot play for being a new card member, after the ten minutes it took to find a machine that would let me use it (no progressives, and no VP).

Does anyone remember the "old days" of Cache Creek? Before they got all fancy? Like 2002? I remember it was a small place with $8 lunch buffets and $1 HUGE cookies at the coffee stand.

One thing I remember is that their poker area was really small, but the poker players had HUGE stacks of chips. I want to say $500+ in $1 chips piled in two decks to form a pyramid shape. This was before I played casino poker, so I don't know what they were doing. I'm guessing that because seats were tough to come by, they just bought in big to stay in the game. Or they were just trying to show off? I've never seen stacks that big anywhere since then.

Another random memory: The "…for Dummies" books were still kinda popular back then, and I remember seeing a "Winning for Dummies" slot machine.
