    i'm surprised i couldn't find this in the archives (apologies if i missed it) but was wondering if someone could enlighten me on the rules within Wynn/encore HL (as well as a sense of the mins). Last time i was there i played on the encore floor just outside the tower suites and was playing the 6D S17 DAS LS RSA game. Was unclear how rules might get better within HL other than maybe going to 2D. Didn't spend any time on the wynn side though will probably do that next time--the encore area was eerily quiet/empty.

    Thanks!

    Well, you will not get better rules for a shoe game at Wynn/Encore. I think that is as good as it gets for a shoe game in Vegas.

    I have never thought of Wynn/Encore as having a good DD game. Hopefully someone who has played recently can tell you whether a S17 DD games exists and, if so, the minimums.

    DD games with those rules generally start at 500 min.

    Yes, that's one of the things I love about gambling at Wynn.:rolleyes2: $500 minimum on a game that can be found for $100 or under at Bellagio, Aria, Mirage...

    I have made a solemn vow never again to play BJ at Wynn, partly because of the BJ rules/minimums combination, but mainly because I just cannot win there.

    I have played at Wynn/Encore a few times, and never left a winner. That's not to say that if I play there again that I would not have my best session ever - but there do seem to be places where dark clouds apparently hang over me!

    Agree with what others have said - at Wynn, you will likely only find really good rules at a $300 or $500 minimum.

    You will be hard pressed to find any game in even the HL where DD will offer RSA. Not going to happen for $500 even.
    Wynn and Encore offer the odds you mention in their HL for 6 deck. Wynn just removed 3 more tables in their sole s17 pit on the floor, putting roulette there. Where there used to be 2 pits and 14 tables of s17 @ .26 HA @ Wynn, now there are 3 on the floor. Encore's floor game at s17 doesn't offer RSA if memory serves.
    Best variety and odds coupled with minimums on the strip can be found at Aria. 6 deck and DD are excellent.
    I've always preferred the Encore HL room for service and dealers.

    I could very well be wrong, but i believe the table at encore right by the tower suites entrance is 6D with RSA. So basically Wynn only has 3 tables with s17 @ .26HA? do you know in the HL room do they have the same rules at 6D or are the tables there all 2D?

    thanks for the reply.

    Same here. I never have any luck there.

    DrGiggles, yes the HL rooms at both Wynn and Encore offer 6D @ .26 and DD @ .40. The DD are commonly $300-500 while the 6D are usually $100. Usually.
    There are 2 tables across from the HL bar at Encore that are 6D s17 but, unless the dealer forgets (it happens) they are not supposed to allow RSA.
    There's also a pitch game there that is not open all the time.
    All that said, I have seen better comps lately as a bit of a consolation.
    Aria still has the best variety of BJ games as of a week ago.;)

    Anyone care to explain what DD, S17 and all the other BJ game types mentioned in this thread means?

    If you have to ask... (just kidding)

    DD = Double Deck game
    S17= Dealer stands on all 17's
    H17= Dealer hits soft 17
    RSA= Resplitting of Aces allowed
    DAS= Double after split allowed

    That's a few to start...

    It is hard to believe that HL room Los are not allowing re-splitting after A's. Is all oh Vegas moving that way?
