    Do any of the Vegas bartop machines offer video blackjack? If so which ones?

    I imagine most of them do. I have for certain seen it at the Long Bar at the D, the Lobby Bar at El Cortez, and a bar at PH (although I don't remember which bar it was).

    I know that pretty much all bartops in Gold Coast have VBJ and they happen to have the best rules out of any VBJ slots I have seen in Vegas.

    VBJ is also at most of the bartops in Cosmo ($1 minimums though) but the top shelf comped drinks makes up for that.

    Ellis Island has VBJ bartops as well as Silverton.

    Yeah, many of them do. Rules vary by property. I think some of the worst rules I have seen are at the Quad, BJ even money (normal), no doubling down allowed (not normal).

    If you can't double-down and 1:1 on blackjacks, the edge on the game is something like 4% or more. How can that be fun?? Any VP game, no matter how crappy is likely better than that.

    i play video bj on bartops sometimes and i always see it at every casino bar. the rules are bad and you only get even money on blackjack but you can bet just a quarter if you want so who cares. i play it for $1 and they give me free drinks. i dont care if i loose its just a game to play while i hangout with my buddies and drink for free. :beer:

    Yes this is why I ask. Hubby prefers it over vp. Goldstrike in Tunica has these multi selection machines. They have vp, blackjack, slots. Thanks for the replies.
    Getting anxious about our first trip to vegas!!

    The Quad also offers 94.82% Deuces at the bar too, so it actually can be worse. :vomit: And VBJ is fun enough if they are willing to give my drinks free for playing it. :drunk:

    I know that the bar at Bally's sports book has it. They also just changed the machines to take quarters up to $5 now. It helps that Po is the best bartender in Vegas! They give you comp drinks if you are playing as well.
