I agree with the general avoidance of any 6:5 Blackjack games. However, I was able to use this game to my advantage during my last trip to Las Vegas. Certain casinos give nice coupons such as "2:1 Blackjack payout" or even "Blackjack is payed off twice" (i.e. a 3:1 payout). I used the 2:1 coupon at a 6:5 table (a single deck table by the way) and played until I hit my first Blackjack, used the coupon, and immediately quit. Now, the question is, what is the house advantage in this case? As I see it, I was playing a 2:1 Blackjack game for a limited amount of time. I was able to double my money and left quite happily. Did I just get lucky or were the odds in my favor?

Similarly, how does the 3:1 Blackjack coupon compare?

Usually the rules also don't allow double split on aces, nor do they allow you to resplit aces at those 6:5 single deck tables. Was this the case at your table?

I can't remember if that was allowed or not, though I would guess no as you said. The two places where this was happening was the Casino Royale and the Stratosphere. Perhaps someone can confirm their rules for those situations.

See my page on promotional chips and coupons.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
