Welcome To Las Vegas Sign

As well as being one of the entertainment capitals of the USA, Las Vegas is truly a gambler’s paradise.

Whether you like to play small, medium or high stakes casino games, poker or bet on sports – Sin City has 24/7 gambling action available for you – not only in casinos, but also at places like gas stations – and even at the Airport (there are countless tales of tourists and travelers hitting big slots & video poker jackpots at Harry Reid International Airport and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas!).

Best Places To Play Table Games in Las Vegas

Table games in Las Vegas run at various limits – from small stakes to mega high stakes to keep gamblers of all types entertained.
Where you gamble is as important as where you choose to stay in Vegas
Table game favorites in Las Vegas include blackjack, craps, roulette, baccarat, Three Card Poker, Pai Gow Poker, Pai Gow Poker, and even Ultimate Texas Hold’em.

Not all casino games in Vegas have the same payouts however. Each casino in Vegas, and each table usually has different minimum and maximum bets. Of course expect to see non-European roulette wheels in the mix in Las Vegas with not just one zero – but two or three zeroes (thereby increasing the casino’s house edge).

It’s definitely worth shopping around to find the best value games before you engage in any form of gambling in Nevada or in any state / country.

Las Vegas Roulette

The house edge on double zero roulette is 5.26%, while Triple zero roulette has a 7.69% house edge.

Don’t expect to find many single-zero (European) Roulette games in Vegas, although Plaza offers single zero roulette, but apart from that It’s pretty much double or triple-zero roulette all the way in Vegas.

The casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas has double zero roulette, whereas almost every other gambling establishment has triple-zero roulette – with a much larger house-edge.

Baccarat

This game is everywhere – but If you’re learning the game and don’t want to burn a hole you in your bankroll, you can play Stadium Baccarat at the the Venetian for $5.

Blackjack – 3:2 vs 6:5 Games – which to avoid?

Generally speaking, dealing the 6:5 version of blackjack improves the house’s edge (or advantage) by about 400% in the long-run.
Seasoned Las Vegas blackjack players have seen Las Vegas casino after casino shift from classic 3:2 Blackjack to 6:5 over the last 10 or so years.

How Do 3:2 and 6:5 Blackjack Games Differ?

The distinction between 3:2 and 6:5 blackjack is small but significant:

  • If your blackjack hand wins at 3:2 blackjack – you will receive 3 dollars for every 2 dollars wagered, or 1.5:1 odds.
  • With winning odds of 6:5, you receive $6 for every $5 you wager, giving you 1.2:1 odds.

Although it may seem like a small distinction, it has a significant impact on the results you can expect, and makes a huge difference to your pocket, and a casino’s bottom line in the long-run.

For players using perfect basic strategy the house edge in the 3:2 blackjack game is around 0.5 percent. That implies they earn an average of $0.50 for every $100 wagered. Of course most casual casino players don’t bet optimally at the game – so the real house edge can be much higher, on average. With a 6:5 blackjack payout, the advantage soars to almost 2%!  You may now anticipate giving the house up to $2 for every $100 wagered, on average in the long run.

Obviously, as professional gamblers place thousands of wagers over time, these discrepancies become very pronounced in the long run.

If you see a 6:5 blackjack game – run away!

Where to play 3:2 Blackjack in Vegas?

There are many casinos on the Las Vegas Strip where 3:2 is only available at high stakes – and many with no  3:2 whatsoever.  Poker Palace in North Las Vegas has low limit $3 minimum-blackjack with 6 decks. The casino has a novelty rule whereby players may double down before and after splitting on 2 or 3 cards.

El Cortez Hotel & Casino has have 8 single deck 3:2 tables and 6 double deck 3:2 tables.

Fremont Street Casinos

If you have never visited The Fremont Street Experience in downtown LV, it’s well worth a visit.

Fremont Street was built in 1905 and became the first paved street in Las Vegas in 1925. It’s a popular place for tourists to gamble, with a number of gambling venues available:

Smoking in Vegas Casinos

Casinos in Nevada are exempted from the statewide smoking ban, and many will comp you free drinks or even hotel rooms depending on your play.

For fans of breathing clean air – assuming everyone at table agrees, you can ask a pit boss to turn on the no smoking sign at the Wynn. Other casinos are likely to also happily comply with the request too.
