    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.

    If you have a car go to Silvertons, they have a $3 table. I was watching a few people play, and they convinced me to try it. Fun table no big pressure, I played 3 sessions that trip.

    The last session I won all my BJ loses back and was up a couple hundred, my wife was worried about getting to the airport, I told her one more hand. Every one at the table knew she wanted to go, hell she had been asking for at least an hour.

    I bet $25 and $5 on the side bet (both your cards suited pays 2.5-1 K-Q suited pays 25-1 if dealer gets suited K-Q with you it pays $1000) I get K&Q hearts. I just wish the dealer woulda pulled one also, and now I'm hooked.

    Golden Gate has a lot of $5 tables, and they pay 3/2.

    jhpa, they do have them as others have pointed out, some are 6/5 that you may find, but you should be able to find 3/2 and $5 denominations as well.
