Vegas Blackjack Players move to Online Blackjack
July 8th, 2010 by Site Admin
The spread of Blackjack games with 6-5 odds in Las Vegas casinos has left gamers dissatisfied with the kind of payoffs they are receiving from these blackjack tables. And, in an effort to get more for their money’s worth, players are turning toward online blackjack sites and casinos to avail of special blackjack bonuses and blackjack games with better blackjack odds & payoffs.
Ideally, the best payout is 3:2 which should occur naturally in a blackjack game held at a land based casino. However, the Las Vegas casinos appear to be replacing the much wanted 3-2 tables with 6-5 tables giving the players very low payoffs. So far, reports estimate that over 25% of the blackjack tables on the Vegas Strip have been replaced with 6-5 blackjack tables. Although some may argue that this is a smart move on the part of Vegas casinos who have improved their house edge, the steady file of blackjack players slowly exiting these casinos in favor of online blackjack proves otherwise.
Players are calling these 6-5 blackjack tables “sucker tables”, as it is only the inexperienced blackjack players who will wager at them since they do not understand that the payoff is not in their favor.
