Default Advantage at Marina Sands. Wow

These are the rules at Marina Sands. If the rules are followed, the player according to the engine here states player will have 0.14 ADvantage.

The rules are : Split up to 4 hands, double on any cards, ENHC, DAS, Surrender on any cards(Read 3.4. However, compare to 3.11),And Splits and double loses mere original if dealer has BJ(3.10 and 3.14),

Link not working. ENHC rules cannot be used for this site Engine. No mention of the important S17 rules. If it is anything like Sands Macau, the HA is about 0.25% if I remember it correctly.

For 6 decks, S17, DAS, No Surrender, Peek , the HA is .44%. With ES10
the HA is reduced by .24%. Net HA is .20%

The rules posted seem like the standard Macau game.... ES10 6D S17 DA2 DAS RSto4 NRSA, HE 0.16%

Much better than Resorts World's game at 0.33%

I will not make an issue about the difference in your MBS figuire and mine.

But the RWS figuire should be 0.62% and not 0.33%.

This is straight out of the Wizard of Odds web page http://wizardofodds.com/blackjack/st.../european.html

The exact rules at Resorts World Sentosa are:
4deck S17 DAS ES10 ENHC D9-11 Split3 NRSA

In the calculation I made here: http://www.blackjackinfo.com/bb/show...t=15709&page=2 - the HE comes out to 0.33%

I think the reason our MBS figures differ is that I started off using the Wizard's Blackjack House Edge calculator whereas I think you started off using the basic strategy engine on this site. They give different results for the same rules, in terms of house edge, though.

If you look at the chart detailedly, http://wizardofodds.com/blackjack/st.../european.html lists a chart where there is no surrender at all. However at RWS you can surrender on all except dealer ACE, so 0.62-0.24 = 0.38, which is about the 0.31 to 0.4 value we keep getting in calculating RW's HA
