I'm on my honeymoon, off to Cape Breton. We stopped in to check out the casino.
First, it's tiny. The Heron is bigger. The slots+table+poker space is the same size as just the heron's table space.
There were 3 BJ tables open, all shoe dealt. I didn't see any CSM. It looked to be 8 decks, 2 decks cut off. $5/$200 and $10/$200 (it might have been $500?).
All the usual Canada crap rules. Hit soft 17.
The good news is the dealers are very sloppy. I saw one flash about 4 cards during the cut. Take advantage of the training period while you can.
Poker has maybe a dozen tables. $1/$2 NLHE, with a $2/$5 added during the weekends.
We stopped in Friday afternoon, around 3:30pm, and the place was pretty dead. There were maybe a dozen BJ players, a handful of slot players, and about a table-and-a-half of poker players.
We dropped $10 on roulette playing 7 and 17 (July 17th). No luck. Walked out with a $1 chip for a souvenir.
