I spent some time Friday Night and Saturday afternoon and did a survey of several casino's downtown to find for sure what has changed, WARNING it wasn't for the better Friday night I stopped at the MSS and am happy to report ALL DD BJ was 3/2 with some $5 min. I observed just one SD BJ game that paid 6/5 Friday night and all weekend the DTG has shoe games with $5 min that pay 3/2, problem here they are seldom available and full of rookies which make it hard for serious players. ALL DD games on the floor were 6/5 with $10-$15 min bets. The high limit room was DD with 3/2 but it has raised to $50 min at all times I was there. Saturday afternoon the Golden Gate had 10 BJ games going. They paid 3/2 and mostly $5 min BUT, ALL games were from a CSM. To me that makes them completely unplayable and even worse than 6/5 rule. I again state ALL were CSM games. One of the most interesting places is the changes at Fremont on my Saturday afternoon visit. Here is the varied list at the time I walked thru: 2 games that were $5 shoes that paid 6/5 One game that was $5 shoe paying 3/2 3 DD games with $5 min that paid 3/2 2 games with CSM's with $5 min and other $3 min that paid 6/5 One SD game with $5 min that paid 6/5 One DD game $10 min with 3/2 and last a DD with $25 min that paid 3/2 It was amazing to me the various games dealt here. Confusing really. Read rules before you sit down At the D on Saturday afternoon All the BJ games offered were shoe games paying 3/2 One DD game in high limit room paying 3/2 $50 min The LVC had $5 shoe games paying 3/2 and had a $10 DD game paying 3/2 The Plaza had $5 shoe games paying 3/2 and DD games with $25 min paying 3/2 California was the same as MSS Plenty of DD games with 3/2 pays and just one SD paying 6/5 Last but not least but defiantly confusing was the 4 queens. 4 $5 shoe games paying 6/5 a DD $15 min paying 3/2 but no double after splits (DAS) 2 $10 min shoe games paying 3/2 One SD $15 min paying 3/2 but double only 10 and 11 and last a $10 shoe game paying 3/2 Remember this was a Friday night and Saturday observation. I did not make it to El Cortez but know they have good SD and DD games there. I also skipped Binions which I assume is similar to 4 queens. I have no idea about the Nugget and from past visits they have both 6/5 and 3/2 games. The surprise is how Fremont is so different than its sisters the MSS and California. Glad to see the Plaza and LVC have changed for the better. Sad to see the changes at the DTG and feel I will be moving to a new home in near future. I didn't play a single hand of BJ this trip there. In time my offers will dry up. Wife likes the rooms and quiet at the DTG but I have to stay where I can play and win. Probably back to the D or give Plaza another try. Any questions feel free to ask. I hope this ends some of the confusion out there. I was glad I took the time to take pen and pencil in hand and find the true facts as of these times. I realize things would change some at night and maybe better during the week. But this does show the trend. I also did a survey on bartop Bonus Poker in these casino's if you are interested. Look for that in near future.
