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
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
