    Hey,
    I visited my local casino here in Austria past weekend. They had two Blackjack games available:
    5 Euro min, 6 deck, 6:5, Dealer stands on all 17s which they call "LAS VEGAS BLACKJACK"
    10 Euro min, 6 deck, 3:2, Dealer stands on all 17s which was called "CLASSIC BLACKJACK"

    I found it funny, that even here thousands of miles away, they know that Blackjack in Vegas is mostly 6:5

    BTW tables with bad rules were packed, 3:2 tables were empty. Not one player had a clue about basic strategy - it was a pain to watch!

    After that visit i know i am ready for our next visit to vegas!

    Greetings from Vienna!

    Casino Wien, right?

    Was going to visit there when I was in Vienna last year, but the fact that I would have had to pay an entrance fee turned me right off. Even from the outside, it had a very "degenerate tourist gambler magnet" sort of feel to it. People don't come to Vienna to gamble. You have to be in serious need of a fix to be playing at such a place, IMO.
