I'm not from the area but I have played Muckelshoot and it's not very good. Mostly 8 decks with poor pen. I would avoid this place.

That can be moderately profitable if you catch and correct the mistakes that hurt you, and let the ones that help you slide.

But on any game with a CSM, don't waste your time counting, there's no place to "start" or "stop" your count.

i have been in muckleshot and you cant double down after split and poor penetration too. but they do have attractive sidebet which is called luckylady. all you have to do is get a total of 20 for your first two cards like 2 face cards or ace and 9. and you can side bet when the running count is high.
if you are lucky enough to get two queens heart and the dealer get blackjack you will get 5000 of what you bet for the side bet

There are a few decent card rooms that I play at. Two in Shoreline, one in Kirkland, and I'm about to start playing in the tournaments up at Red Dragon. Several of the stores are owned by the same group (Washington Gold).

From reading CBJN, if there's one casino to avoid, it's Muckleshoot in Auburn. I've never played there, but it seems miserable (won't go into details--if you want those, you'll have to fork over the $15 yourself).

Tulalip is not CSM, it is a shoe (6D). As I recall it has the following rules:

6D, H17, DAS, DAT, RS4, no RSA, no HSA, only lose original bet vs BJ, no LS, 3:2. Per the wizard of odds calculator, this results in a house edge of .62% (.64%) when you consider the effect of the cut card.

On a weekend night, you'll only find $10+ tables. Other days you might find $5. It's an Indian casino, so the WA no-smoking laws do not apply. Drinks are expensive.

Tulalip was the first WA casino I ever visited (before I became an AP), and I have quickly learned to turn to the smaller card rooms for better rules, proximity, and playing conditions. I would not recommend Tulalip, except for the occasional player's club mailer, or to get more of the real casino experience with all of the pomp and pizazz (if you're into that stuff).

As long as they keep sending me free money (match plays, etc) in the mail, I"ll go and play the player bet on Baccarat to cash them out* but I do not make a regular habit of playing here without special incentives.

*When playing a match play that is restricted to "even money" bets, Baccarat is often a better bet than blackjack (literally). Match plays often cannot be doubled, split, surrendered, etc effectively. As a result, you should rarely (if at all) use these basic strategy options when you have a match play in use. By eliminating these options, the house edge on blackjack is increased severely (well beyond 1%). Instead a bet on the player in Baccarat is optimum, as it carries a house edge of only 1.24%, and suffers no limitations versus the regular game. For exact values of match plays by each game, consult the wizard of odds website. If you are not restricted to even money bets, it is advisable to take the riskiest option possible--often a single number on Roulette.
