So where can we still find 5 dollar blackjack at 3:2 downtown? How bout 10 on the strip
Wizard of Vegas keeps a pretty updated list of 3-2 and minimums here...
Downtown? 5 bucks? Were can't you find it? On a recent Thursday-Monday trip, the only place I didn't find 3:2 $5 (or lower) tables was at the Golden Nugget.
Haven't played BJ on the strip recently, but I'd bet that $10 tables are plentiful at all but the fanciest-shmanciest places.
a1s8 is correct about downtown...it's everywhere, except for the Nugget's 'party-pit' (6:5) and Binion's (also 6:5).
The Strip? Well, if you count Circus, they've got $5 & $10 two-deck 3:2 with DAS.
The Riv used to have a $10 two-deck that was 3:2, but I have no idea whether they still offer that.
Mirage & MGM have (or had) a very good $15 6-deck shoe (s17, DAS, LS, RSA) that is (or was) 3:2.
Personally? If I'm on the strip, I will go to Gold Coast to play...plenty of 2-deck, 3:2 with DAS at the $5 & $10 level. Quick shuttle from Bally's and you're there in 5 to 10 minutes.
That is a shame. I had a great evening one night after they first opened it up and offered 6 deck, $25 H17, DAS, Surrender, RSA.
Everything dies, baby that's a fact
But maybe everything that dies, someday comes back....
Main Street Station has $5, both double deck ad 6 deck. I played the double deck. It's H17, NDAS and no RSA. The penetration was 50%.
On the upside they have good beer and they speak Aloha!
Wong's bj21 has monthly postings and is a better site than Shackleford's Wiz site, while bj21 is not always totally accurate, it is up dated much more frequently than Wiz.
And there are lots of $10 3/2 tables on the strip, even at CET props. One must look and then note some are next to 6/5 tables so one must pay attention.
I'm glad to hear this. It's been a few years since I was in town and I was starting to think you couldn't play 3/2 on the strip for less than $25 a hand. My friends really want to stay on the strip this time and if I couldn't find any 3/2 tables i'd be heartbroken.
Thanks so much for input all
El Cortez downtown has single deck 3:2 with $5 minimums.
Yeah, I think all of the Boyd properties have these rules downtown, at least at the $5 level. Golden Gate and El Cortez have some pretty decent games.
I've been staying at the Flamingo the last few trips, and the pattern seems to be that if it's a $10 shoe, it pays 6:5. Mostly you have to go to a $15 minimum table to get the 3:2. 2-decks are always $25 or more (and NDAS at most CET properties.) This seems to be the same at Bally's, PH, Harrah's, etc. Also, these shoe games are almost always 8-decks. Maybe Quad will have 3:2 at $10, not sure.
Cosmo shoes will be 3:2 but $25 and 8-decks. Every 2-deck game on the main floor is 6:5.
Aria you can find $15 3:2 games but these will be dealt from a CSM. If you want a shoe game, it will be $25 and up.
At Bond in Cosmo I was on a $10 and a $15 table that paid 3:2, they were 8 deck shoes.
If you're willing to walk 5-7 minutes behind Bally's you have 3/2 games with $3 and $5 minimums at the Westin and Ellis Island, respectively. (The Westin has zero atmosphere, of course, but the dealers were friendly.)
Got home last night from a 4 night stay at Bellagio. Noticed on Monday morning, they had a $10 table with H17, 3:2. Every other morning it was $15, but still, $10 tables are there. If you moved to the other pit, they S17
