    Where can one play 3:2 video blackjack and still get decent comps or points? The one at the D gives no points.

    My issue with video blackjack is finding a game that allows double/split. I’ve only seen those at Venetian.

    Points are going to be the least of your concerns. Video BJ has terrible rules.

    Yea, I have played it a little to change up my play.

    Your money will not last long.

    I don't know of any video blackjack games that pay 3/2....6/5 is the best you will find.

    The stadium style BJ (shares with Craps) at the Linq allows doubles, surrender and splits but is 6:5 and takes a lot of $ to get a point.

    Last summer I recall EL Cortez video BJ was 3:2. Maybe it still is. But any comps there still means you’re at El Cortez

    The last time I played stadium blackjack at a CET property was at the Horseshoe in Baltimore in the summer of 2018. At the time, I confirmed that it took $55 of bets per TC/RC (with 1 RC = $0.01 in resort spend, or $0.005 of free play).

    Otherwise, El Cortez might be the one place left with the "traditional" video blackjack -- the kind found in a cabinet similar to (or even shared with) video poker or video keno. (Perhaps some bar-top machines still have video blackjack that earns points.) If found there, it probably earns 1 point per dollar of coin-in (meaning $5 of coin-in for an amount of points equal to one cent of free play), and probably separately earns self-comp dollars at the same rate as video poker (0.09% of coin-in).

    Binion’s offers it (Interblock - both bartops and a stand-alone unit; I’m almost positive they have the stadium version too which has roulette/blackjack/bubble craps); it comps at the same rate as VP ($8 coin-in per point, equating to .3125% cash back and .625% comps) - it is 3/2, DAS, no resplits or surrenders (have been told that equals .8 percent house edge). It squeaks ahead of 8/5 BP and about ties with LDW as their best machine play, with much lower volatility. Can’t download FP to it though (at least on bartops, per my experience) :(
