Here is a basic summary on averages and ranges
casino edmonton/yellowhead 1 deck cutoff 4 deck shoe (range 0.5-1.25)
baccarat/palace 1.5 deck cutoff 6 deck shoe (range 1-2)
century 2 deck cutoff 6 deck shoe ( range 1-2.25)
river cree 1.5 deck cutoff 6 deck shoe (1-2)
Thanks for posting, but I'm still not clear on what this means. I was asking for the pen on that one 6-deck game only (Palace?) in the mall, which one poster described as 1.25 and another as .75. As far as typical Edmonton pen goes, you say that it's .75, but then you go on to cite a number of 6 deck games, which are mostly 1.5 pen min.. Which is the truth? Was the .75 figure for a 4-deck game? What is the typical pen for the 6-deck game, and what is the typical pen for the 4-deck game? I say this because, I'll travel a long way for great (.75 pen, 6 decks), but not for average (1.5) or horrible (2.0). Hope this makes my question clearer.
