    I believe it was $25 / hand when I was there a few years back. Decent but not great odds (I think they hit S-17). Might go to $50 when it gets really busy.

    It's tough because you can't really be walking around with cash by the pool in case it gets wet, so you need to have pockets to store chips.

    I've seen $10 on weekdays, $15 on weekends, and anywhere from $15-$100 during XS hours. They even open a craps table on weekends. Last I checked, that was $10 as well.

    You can always use one of these. I know, not too fashionable, but they work great when at the pool/waterpark.

    They do while playing poolside craps at Encore, would assume they would for blackjack as well.
