I just got back from a weekend trip to Vegas. We stayed at Palazzo which is pretty common for me as I have a good host there. I exclusively play blackjack - typically $50 minimum tables. This was my first trip back there since November, and I was horrified that they have converted all Blackjack tables, with the exception of double deck and high limit salon games, to 6/5 payout on BJs.... This is an abortion of the game if you ask me - especially in a hotel of this stature - especially on $25 and higher tables. I get it on low limit tables, and I even get it on single deck, but lowering the BJ payout on full value shoe games is terrible. I wanted to share what we did, successfully, all weekend long. When we sat down at any of the regular $25 shoe games - we would ask the pit boss to bump the table minimum to $50, and we would request traditional 3/2 BJ payouts. They typically would call and approve it with the floor supervisor on duty, but we were NEVER denied our request. They said they have a new policy in place that if you request $50 minimum at 3/2 - they change the table to "reserved" status, and are willing to change the payout to 3/2. We were told by several dealers and multiple pit bosses that this is a new policy & we should "spread the word" because they are not allowed to offer it, but can do it if players request it.... YMMV, but I wanted to share that policy here on the boards. I think this is a short sided play on their part and may actually affect how I feel about staying there in the future, but I thought this was good information to pass along. Good luck to all!
