    Do they have 3/2 Blackjack tables? Or is it littered with 6/5 tables?
    What are the minimum wagers for the 3/2 tables, if they do have them?

    When I was there in August, I was playing $15+ a hand and was able to easily find 3:2. I believe that the tables in the "pleasure pit" where the hot girls deal is all 6:5 but everything else should be 3:2 and I don't think I ever saw a table go below $15/hand minimum

    I was there during NFR and could not find a 3:2 table below $100 min. Pleasure pit was all crappy rules, but even the tables outside of their near Heart bar were bad rules and 6/5 at $15.

    MGM props have 3/2 but only in the continuous shuffle games, really slow periods, or HL games. Im resolved to play Blackjack at the Riv, downtown, or offstrip now.

    I recommend purchasing a current copy of Stanford Wong's Current Blackjack News. It will answer all your questions about Blackjack conditions concerning payouts, table minimums, and other things.

    When I was there last October there were 3:2 tables outside the Pleasure Pit area and at a group of four tables next to the High Limit room that had Pleasure Pit dealers. Lowest minimum there was $25 - not sure if they had cheaper 3:2 tables in the regular pit. A month earlier I played 3:2 at a Pleasure Pit table - starting at $15 but then it switched to $25 minimum.

    Caesars properties do have the most 6:5 blackjack. It can be tough to find 3:2 tables at decent minimums.

    However, MGM has some of the best blackjack rules in Vegas. You can find 3:2 S17 DAS RSA LS 6D as low as $25 min at MGM Grand, Bellagio, Mirage, and Aria. And their 6:5 is typically limited to single deck. You can even find $5 3:2 at places like Circus Circus.

    Is there any chance I can find a 3:2 game at Planet Hollywood during the week (January 23, no NFL games or major events) for $25 or so?

    Absolulely. Read HuskerBB's post and he describes the best place to find the 3:2 tables for $25. It's away from the Go-Go dancers but the dealers are all wearing the hot outfits (this all starts at 8:00PM, I think every night). This 4-table pit has three H17 8-deck shoes and one H17 2-deck game, all $25 (and pay 3:2).

    There are some other 2 and 8 deck games for $25 spread around the place as well. Note: the 2-deck game includes No-double-after-split. (These are also 3:2). Mainly, their 6:5 games (wherever they are) are single-deck, but they may do that on some double-deck tables as well.

    Something funny to watch (but not play) is Never-Bust-Blackjack at the PH. The rules are that both the player and dealer keep hitting any 16 and below until they bust, and then the bust card is taken away and what's left over is your total. It seems symmetrical but they add a rule that you push if the dealer ends up with 15. You still get a bonus on blackjack. It's funny because it's dealt like a machine gun as there are no player card play decisions at all (except insurance which you should skip).

    They have about half 3:2 half 6:5. Pleasure Pit will always be 6:5.

    You can probably find it, but it will likely be H17.

    As long as people will buy in, the possibilities are endless. Just say no!

    It's funny, one time I was in PH and I walked by the (empty) Never Bust BJ table and the pretty dealer tried to get me to play.

    "Is it 6-5?"
    "Yes."

    I just shook my head and walked away. She smiled as if she understood my annoyance.
