Went to Cyprus again over the weekend, it was a short getaway trip, so I didnít play much. Some updates below:

Played only at Mercure, where the minimum was $10, nice place and very cool casino, pretty packed too. I lost a couple hundred there and requested loss rebate, but no loss rebate for under $1000 loss/day. Didnít ask how many % they pay out, but should be between 10-20%.

Rules were 6D, S17, DAS, DOA, ES10, ENHC, no RSA. Pen was around 60%. Hand shuffle took way too much time as the table was full and they burn 5 cards off the top, while giving low pen. So, itís a pain to play on a full table.

Below are some updates on minimums I saw around. Didnít play at these places:

Merit Crystal Cove: $15
Cratos Premium: $25
Rocks: $25
Oscar Resort: $10

Also, Cratos had a secluded room (looks like a high-roller room, but itís not), dedicated to some machines made by a company called ďInorganicĒ. There was roulette, blackjack, horse racing etc, all community type machines. Played some blackjack there for fun, minimum was 5TL ($3). Checked out the paytables but couldnít find out if they shuffled the deck each time or not. But just like the blackjack machines in Vegas, you never see a shuffling act, so even if itís not shuffling after each hand, you donít know ďwhenĒ it is shuffling. Also, max bet on these machines was 20TL, so it doesnít matter much even if you can count

Default cyprus

rocks has 15$ games weekdays,
i never went to mercure, but mercure, and merit crystal lefkosa and merit crystal girne belong to the same company and i hear that both hotels and casinos are excellent. also oscar resort is the name of the hotel, the casino is called galaxy casino, they have double again rule as an advantage compared to mercure.
still i would chose to play at a casino with extra advantages, like resplitting aces or double again rule.

these are main rules.
2 casinos support re double down (or triple down as you call it) again rule the others dont.
one casino has only split aces + all the rules above but they have about 4.75 deck pen.
one casino has split aces and early surrender for ace.

Yeah,I have the plan visiting Cyprus
I'll finish a gambling trip and back to Taiwan(my country) tomorrow.
I may take some days to plan going to Cyprus for next gambling trip
But I still have some questions:

1.Do we need to declare money(checks) if we bring more money out Nothern Cyprus or Turkey than we bring in?

2.How much money do we live in hotels per night?

3.Is it cheaper if we rent an apartment one month?And how much is the price?

Sorry for my bad English grammar haha.
Hope u understand what I said XD.

guys my email is

of course it would be cheaper to rent a house in the long run, but hotels are not that expensive. if you bet quite big most casinos will comp you a room.
