    I didn't see another thread recently about this.....

    Has anyone visited Tunica recently? I'm curious about Blackjack specificially? Still have 3/2 payouts? What about table mins?

    How about poker? Are games plentiful or can it be tough to find a lower limit game?

    Thanks for any help!

    I don't know the answers, but I was debating driving down to Tunica this weekend and this thread pushed me to go ahead and do it. :peace:

    I was last there in December and will try to help. 95% of my play is at Goldstrike. And there, you can find BJ for as little as $5, but those tables fill fast. Plenty of games that are $10 and up. All tables in Tunica are hit soft 17 and nobody offers surrender. I know the blackjack payouts in the high limit room are 3:2, but I am not sure if the other tables are 6:5 or 3:2.

    As for poker, Goldstrike is dead and they are closing their poker room. Seems like most of the action is at Harrahs and Horseshoe. Horseshoe was renovating and expanding their poker room when I was there in December. I know other properties used to have poker rooms, and I assume still do, but I have not stopped in them in many years. the WSOP circuit events are at Harrahs, so it seems that is the property that draws the biggest poker crowds.

    Hope that helps!

    I am headed there this weekend to the Gold Strike.
    UK I bet we have seen each other before. I usually don't play at tables with don't players(no offense), but I have been to Tunica a lot and only play craps.

    It's certainly possible. I'm usually the only don't player. And half the time I'm standing next to a loud, ridiculous friend, betting against him :thumbsup:

    I'm glad I could help!

    If anyone has any info about the $10 tables being 3/2, that would be great.

    I always say i'm going to drive down there but I never have. I'm looking for a nice little appetizer for a Vegas trip later this year and have been thinking about visiting for a couple of days. If BJ's are only 6/5 though, I won't bother.

    Josh, I think the $10 tables at GS are 3:2, but I am not certain of it. I recall sitting with a friend at a standard table in the main casino back in September and I would not have played at it if it were 6:5. The friend and I were playing green chips, but I think the other players at the table were betting red.

    If you have never been to Tunica, its a good warm up for Vegas. Lots of fun gambling and, at least at craps, the rules are even better than some Vegas rules. But unlike Vegas, there is not much to do there besides gamble

    Thanks a lot for the info!

    I live in St. Louis, so it's only around a 5 hour drive. I don't know why I haven't taken the trip yet but i've been feeling the bug.

    Personally, gambling is all I need :)
