    ...if you're consistent with basic strategy, $50 a hand blackjack is probably the most secure method to wash these chips. Very low variance.
    Find you a double-deck 3:2 game with DAS and flat-bet $50 a hand.
    After about 5 or 6 decks (or less), you will have played enough, losing about 48% of your bets, pushing about 9% and winning about 43%.You should be left with most of the $875 in cash, in less than an hour.

    UPDATE... lol

    So long story short, I went the double deck blackjack route. The beginning was brutal, lost the first four hands at $50 and the fifth hand was a god awful $300 loss with two split/double hands. So, in five hands I’m already down more than half the free play. I ask if we can drop the shoe and the pit boss declined. So, I take the $375 and hit the HL $100 tables. The dealer that dealt me the royal on 6 card was in there, so I’m thinking that is a positive. Played a few hands and luckily turned that into a grand total of $750. I’ll take that any day after being down $500 right off the bat. The secondary plan of taking that to some $5 VP wasn’t happening, I was content with that and didn’t want to donate anymore.

    So, good bye Jamul Casino... It’s been real!
