    3/2 still at the Cal and El Cortez($3 and all tables)......hate to see things going the way of 6/5. The Grand does have some 3/2 tables....sorry no details, I believe it was at high minimums. Manny still tossing some hilarious lines and eggs at MSS breakfast buffet. Great craft beer at Boars Head.....1.75 for a pint if you are not playing. The Cal prime rib was tender!!!....Prime rib full dinner for 10 bucks includes Beef, salad bar starch choice, vegie and cherries jubilee....more than I could eat. Pop Up Pizza was good at Plaza. Enjoyed a day at Sam's Town. Unfortunately I caught a bug 1/2 way through week! Being sick in Vegas sucks!! The WAX bus for a buck to seniors....what a deal!....... Airport to DT. This is not a trip report!

    I am truly disappointed that any Boyd casino would allow any 6:5 table, (other than single-deck - which every place in Nevada seems to have done except for El Cortez).

    But at least the Fremont still has plenty of TWO-DECK 3:2 tables at low limits ($5 & $10). No so for DTG... or Binion's... or theD.
    There is NO 2-deck at all on the main-floor of theD... their other 6-deck/CSM blackjack is all 3:2.
    Binion's "blackjack" is all 6:5.
    DTG has 2-deck on the main floor - all 6:5. From what I have read here, they still have multi-deck shoes with 3:2 on the main floor, although they should tell their dealers that, as the one I asked told me that all of their blackjack was now 6:5.

    Let me put it this way - there are only 3 casinos downtown that have a 6:5 two-deck table in the casino at all: DTG (every main-floor table), Binion's (every table) & 4-Queens (1 table).
    If 3:2 two-deck vanishes from the downtown Boyd casinos, I will never gamble at them again...which essentially means giving up on most of downtown.
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    Call me naive, but I have a hard time imagining that either the CAL or MSS would ever go to 6:5 blackjack on their double deck tables. My group plays 90 percent cards at these two properties. We have met many "regulars" from Hawaii who are seasoned card players. I would guess if these properties went to 6:5 tables, not only would there be an uproar, but they would lose many faithful customers.

    I just returned from Vegas yesterday. I played $5 3:2 DD games at El Co, Fremont, Cal, and MSS. I did not see a $3 table at El Co (they usually have a couple, but I did not see any this trip), nor did I look for one at Fremont. Played $5 SD 3:2 at El Co as well. Downtown Grand had three BJ tables going. One $5 3:2 shoe game, the other two were $15 6:5 single deck games - as expected, the single deck games had no players, while the $5 3:2 shoe game had people vulturing for a seat to open up. Also played some $5 3:2 shoe games at GG and $10 3:2 shoe games at 4Q's.
