    I played Freebet at The D in December and loved it, have not played Switch as yet, but have copied the rules for best play and am going to Coushatta in August for 2 days... they have Switch, but have not gotten Freebet yet. Then it's back to Downtown Las Vegas for 6 days in December.

    I like to practice a game before I play with real money. Most games I practice with the trainer or helper turned on... i.e.

    3 card poker on line.com ....

    Do you have anything similar or are you planning on joining the other games listed on the 3 card poker game site?
    ---
    Also, will you be getting Freebet included at Coushatta... Are either of these two games at Leberge du lac in Lake Charles??? Are either of these games in Downtown Vegas besides at The D.

    Thanks for inventing these games....Sorry to bother you with questions, but I believe a lot of people would like to practice your games... these variations make blackjack more fun to play... especially important when you play 2 to 6 days in a row. Of all things, you do not want to get bored while playing with real money!!!

    Here's a question for those that have played BJ Switch - are there any $5 games on the Strip - meaning $5 per hand = $10 bet?

    Or

    Are they all $10 per hand = $20 bet?


    Thanks.

    When I was there in 2012, Casino Royale had $5 a hand for Switch (so $10 a play). I'm hoping it's still there, I love CR and I love Switch.

    I play Switch on my tablet on an app called BLACKJACK (5 GAMES) by Viaden. It doesn't have an analyzer but it's quite good. There are a few other BlackJack apps with Switch but I don't think they're very good (I've seen mistakes).

    You had a bad session, certainly, but nothing about a CSM would make the game worse than a 6 or 8 deck shoe (unless you wanted to count, of course.)

    I have a BJ-switch program I DL'd to my PC. If it's ok, I can post the link to the download, or one can google it.
    I've yet to see one for 'free-bet', but I'm sure it's just a matter of time.
    In actual casino play, I prefer free-bet to switch, but they're both quite interesting.
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    Thank you for the kind words Texas Grammar.

    I'm now back in the UK so will hope to update my Free Bet page, on Facebook, in the next week or so. I haven't heard anything about the places that you mentioned but I know that there are around 60 casinos in the interested/very interested group and I'm hoping that the majority of those will eventually get the game.

    As far as a practice game goes then I'm working on a free-play game that will be linked with Facebook and, if all goes well, then that should be up and running in around a month or so. I've also licensed Bodog and I will see what their status is regarding the timing of adding the game to their platform. I'll report back on here when I get some feedback.

    Finally, there are 2 games at Golden Gate and 2 games at The Golden Nugget if you want to try somewhere else Downtown.

    Hope this helps.

    I've only played at MGM and I'm pretty sure they only had $10 and higher but they did have a few tables open. I played twice.... the first time was a blast and I actually turned $200 into $700. The second time killed me. That push on 22 rule can be a killer.
