    I have to say, after visiting Wynn/Encore the last couple nights, having not been in the casino in a bit, I'm really disappointed in the extent to which 6:5 has taken over their floor. Any table below $50 seemed to be 6:5 (and printed on the felt, so it's not like it's just an occasional thing during busy periods), and even at $50 I struggled to find a playable table. Made me really appreciate Aria, which has a lot of CSM tables but at least not a 6:5 table in the house, which the dealers continue to be pretty proud of when I talk to them.

    Yikes.

    How about the pit nearest to B Bar? Or the one over by the Asian games and HL room?


    Thanks for the info!

    Honestly, I'm not enough of a Wynncore expert to answer that (and I find the layout of that place to be maddening). I'd have to go and check the floor plan to see where exactly on the property I was. All I can say tonight is that on two casual walkthroughs, it took me a long, long time to find a 3:2 table, and when I did, the lowest minimum available was $50. I can't rule out that there are okay $25 tables, but I hunted for a bit and didn't see anything.

    Damn.

    Wynn has never been Aria/Bellagio with respect to its BJ. But it's always had plenty of "pretty good" options available. I hate to see this.

    Again, thanks for the update.

    Don't play there. Show Wynn we won't take their negative changes.

    Wynn BJ has always been pretty bad. They and the Cosmo are the only high-end places in town that doesn't have a single S17 double deck table, regardless of the stakes you're willing to play. They hit soft 17 on all double decks. The only playable BJ games there are the 6 deck, S17 games. I think they're usually $100-$300 minimum. The absence of a good double deck game is one thing that has kept me from ever playing serious money at Wynn/Encore. It's the same reason I no longer play seriously at Cosmo, unless I want to donk off money at Baccarat. They used to have a S17 high limit DD that I hit for $100K the first time I played it....now they are H17 even in the Talon Club (though they are S17 on their shoe game in there).

    On the floor all of the DD games I've seen at Cosmo are 6:5 as well. In the Bond pit area the minimums are way too high to deal with the 6:5 rule.

    At least Bond has attractive dealers, a DJ, etc. I'm not into the whole "party pit" concept but I can understand the appeal. What I can't get behind are normal tables that just pay out 6:5 instead of 3:2 because "Screw you, that's why."

    Yeah, last time I was there I even saw some 8 deck, 6:5, hit soft 17 games lol (and they were full..... :vomit: ...what are these idiots doing to my game?!?!!?!!). They might as well head for the 00 roulette tables if they want to play against that kind of edge. At least there they have a shot at 35:1 and aren't encouraging the continued destruction of blackjack for the rest of us.

    I switched to FBBJ because at least they pay 3:2 for less than $100 a hand. Haha. Also the swings when losing your double or split aren't as brutal.

    My cynical side says if you can afford to gamble at Wynn, you really shouldn't care about 6:5. But I know better than that.

    Funny. I look at it the other way. If you can afford to gamble whatever you want why should you settle for 6:5?

    I just got back from the Wynn. The 3/2 games are still in the pit down from the B-Bar on the south side and a pit now on the north side. All h17.
    The s17 pit directly accross from B-Bar was open sporadically during the day at $50-100. h17 were $25 min. As stated DD is all h17 but was hand dealt.
    Encore had a mix of h17 3/2 and 6/5 at $15.
    By no means are the majority of the tables in Wynn 6/5.

    Thanks, Malibugolfer! I was hoping they hadn't messed with any of those. Looks like I have a trip to book now.
