    My Trip Report

    Moderator: Please delete - I posted this in the wrong place:


    I am a craps player but I am teaching myself blackjack. A long time ago, I swore I would never go back to a table - apparently I took a hit when I should have stood and an obnixious player went ballistic saying I took "his" card. . This was at a $10 table so there was not a lot of money at stake.

    I recently found the video blackjack game at a casino in Philadelphia. I enjoy it and, even though there may be 5 other players at the game, it is definately less pressure. But I noticed they do not seem to have these machines in Atlantic City - at least I never saw them

    Here is my question: Do they have them in Vegas? I will be out there in July and want to try it.

    I may also venture to a low limit table if I can find one - I will be spending a day downtown and wandering the strip for at least three other days. Where would be a good place to find lower limit blackjack tables?

    I remember seeing 3 or 4 of them at MGM Grand. Four or five seats at each one. I seem to remember they were $5 minimum. Someone else can probably add more. I also think I saw them in some other casinos, but I don't remember for sure.

    Last time I was there, the Riviera had about 6 of those machines lined up almost right in front. Hope they are still there, as they are my favorite machines.

    You can find the blackjack machines at Vegas Club, and probably other casinos downtown.
    Downtown, you will also find $3 minimum blackjack tables at El Cortez and Gold Spike. Maybe other properties too, but I know for sure those two locations have a $3 table.
    Slots o Fun, on the very north end of the strip, has one of those blackjack machines with $1 or $2 minimums.

    Also at Monte Carlo when I was there in April. True blackjack paying 3 to 2. Also very good rules including H17 and $5 min, as I recall.

    I haven't been to Vegas in 3 years, but last time I was there Bills had video black jack up at the bar. It was $.25 minimum play.

    Pretty much all casinos have those machines. OP is asking about a different kind of machine. There are seats for multiple players and a virtual dealer (usually with huge breasts) who deals to all the players. It's like a virtual table game I guess:

    Many places that have those Game King machines will have blackjack as an option.

    Unfortunately it usually only pays even money for a natural 2 card 21. :(
