    From my understanding and research, it appears that Treasure Island has the best blackjack rules around. The $25.00, stand on 17, 3:2, table looks like the only one I can find for a $25.00 minimum. I'm staying at the Rio and I'm aware that CET isn't too kind to table players to begin with. I have no history playing at Treasure Island.

    Any TI blackjack players out there that could shed some light on the comps they dole out for a $25.00 - $35.00 blackjack player for a few hours of play a day?

    that $25 game is usually $50. Mid week late at night it might be $25. I played that game for around $40 a hand for four hours. I get reduced rates if I ask.

    The table you're talking about is in the "high limit room" (those quotes are air quotes). The problem with trying to get comped on this table is that the rules are very good - therefore the house edge is very low (0.25532%) - and therefore, your theo will be correspondingly low.

    We'll assume your max bet is $35, 100 hands per hour, and "a few hours" as being four hours, spread across four days of one session each. $35 x 100 x 4 x 4 = $56,000 in total wagers. Your theoretical loss is $142.98. If you'll be comped, say, 40%, to be generous, you're looking at between $50 and $60 in comp value.

    I suspect you may be able to swing a sit-down meal or two - and possibly the right to request a casino rate room on your next trip down, but this isn't earth-shattering for them - and won't be for you either, unless you manage to pull down some serious wins for yourself while playing.

    Thanks for the responses. That is what I pretty well figured. I'll be there during the week, so we'll see what the limits are.

    I'm a HUGE fan of Treasure Island. A $25 average will get you reduced rates starting at $39 with resort fee OPTIONAL. This is roughly the dollar equivalent to a comped room at CET where you HAVE to pay the resort fee (just a few dollars more). The $25 s17 shoe game in high limit is a great game. I usually play the $10-$15 h17 DAS double-deck game on the floor. I think it's the best blackjack bet for low-rollers on the strip. Good luck!

    What do you mean optional resort fees?

    Oh yeah, I read somewhere that the resort fees are optional at Treasure Island a few months ago. Glad to know they still offer that.

    The resort fees are indeed optional at TI. At the $40-$50 level, you will receive future room offers. 2 nights, no food credit or promo chips.

    Thanks Nick! I wasn't sure where the "cut off" for future free rooms was . $40-$50 a hand average is very reasonable. All of the players club offers I have from TI are "resort fee optional." That ...combined with excellent gambling for low rollers...makes me a big fan of TI.

    How many hours of play does one need to get in at $40-$50 to get such an offer as this (for two nights, that is)?
