Riviera Las Vegas Cancels Bottoms Up Blackjack
September 19th, 2013 by Site Admin
Riviera Las Vegas Casino has cancelled a number of attractive blackjack variants, much to the disappointment of blackjack players. The casino’s innovative Bottoms Up Blackjack, in which players were dealt face-up cards, ties ended in a push, and blackjack was paid even money, is now no more.
The casino now offers only cheap $1 blackjack. Fortunately, it also continues to offer Single Deck Blackjack, which pays 3-2 for blackjack and allows players to place a minimum bet of $10. This variant also allows players to double if the first two cards dealt to them turned out to be equal to 10 or 11. However, the casino offers only one table for Single Deck Blackjack. This table is surrounded by 6-5 blackjack games.
To make matters worse, the casino has eliminated the Pai Gow Poker variant, in which players did not have to pay the house a commission of 5 percent if they won. The casino had not only removed the poker room, but also the Asian table games area and the party pit. The space thus created was fully occupied by slot machine games.
The casino’s food court now lacks the Mediterranean and Buffalo Wing windows, but the other options are still available.
