    In Nevada, yes, the house edge should match a live game with the exact same rules. Otherwise, it would be illegal.

    And assuming the same rules too. I've never played Organic Blackjack (though I like their roulette machines) so haven't seen if there are any added or unusual rules or blackjacks pay differently... but if the rules of the electronic game were the same as the rules of a table game they would have the same house edge.

    Huh?

    I am assuming by "organic", we are talking about those video machines?? And, one should not mix up house edge with house rules. For example, 6:5 payout vs 3:2 payout. House makes way more on the 6:5. Some machines even pay even money on BJ.

    So.....

    I think all he was saying is a video machine with the same rules as a table (such as hit soft 17, 3:2) by law in Nevada must play exactly like the table version. The casino or company cannot tamper it to be different. As that seems to possibly be the fear of the OP.

    actually, the odds might be better, check the rules on the machine before you play.

    I'm not sure if was an Organic brand, but last trip I played Video Blackjack, 6 decks, dealer stand on Soft 17, 3/2 on blackjack, double after split, double on any two, while the tables had 6/5 bj dealer hit soft 17 and 8 decks

    Yeah for low limit players you're sometimes better off playing the multiplayer blackjack machines. All depends on the rules offered.

    The Organic blackjack that they had installed at Mandalay Bay was 6/5 blackjack. So pretty poor odds, but also no one was playing it. Why should they when they can get the same crappy game at a real table! The organic craps (and other 'bubble craps') varieties actually do pretty well. The odds are the same but with lower limits, so it attracts people who want to try out the game at lower limits, especially in a place like Mandalay where the minimum at the craps tables is usually the awkward $15 dollars.

    Cheers!

    Yeah its usually for the lower limits. I've never played Organic Blackjack but I do like their Organic Roulette machines and I'll probably check out the blackjack machines on our next trip, but thats the thing: I would expecting some pretty low limits and if not then why would I play if I can get the same rules at the tables?
