A new blackjack game that pays only 6-to-5 for a player blackjack is spreading through the casino industry. WARNING... NEVER, EVER PLAY THIS GAME!!!! It is a sizable cash cow for the casinos and VERY detrimental to the player.
Ordinarily, a blackjack pays 7.5 to 5 for a player blackjack (time-and-a-half).
Normally, just under 5% of all hands dealt are blackjacks and usually around a 100 hands are dealt per hour (more or less depending on how full the table is). One player playing $25 dollars a hand will therefore be giving up $7.50 per hand to the house on each of 5 hands per hour on the average.
THE HOUSE IS ESSENTIALLY RAKING IN ALMOST $37.50 AN HOUR MORE IN THIS EXAMPLE THAN THEY WOULD BE IN A LEGITIMATE BLACKJACK GAME. THIS IS HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please help spread the word. If un-knowing players continue to play these games, it could embolden the casinos to spread them yet further and eventually ruin this otherwise excellent, casino game.
No, you aren't. But even if you owned stock in MacDonalds and also liked to eat there, wouldn't you like to be informed about it if one of the burgers used 50% soy in the meat and sold for the same price?
The casinos don't tell you that 6:5 blackjack is the ripoff that it is.. they should be required to tell you that you will do much worse over time if you play it than you would playing REAL blackjack.
I own this stock too but, the main casino`s are improving the odds in their favor to much. When I go to Vegas now I always play the smaller casino`s better odds and comps anymore. So I am concerned about them losing customers and I sure don`t like the bond deal. JMHOO
