Default Tunica games?

Has anyone been to Tunica lately or familiar with the BJ games there? I might be heading to Harrahs / Horseshoe / Roadhouse. I like shoes game like 4 or 6 decks. What are the rules/pen at those games? Is there really any heat for 1-8 or 1-10 spreads for red chippers there?

Thanks for the help!

Default Tunica for red chippers

At the Roadhouse, you will probably only find 3 tables open: 1 50% pen DD, 1 6-5 Single deck, and 1 8 deck shoe. Possibly there will be a $3 8 deck shoe game paying 6-5. Not a blackjack casino. All red chip games at the Horseshoe will be 8 deck 3-2. You won't get much heat in these games. Haven't been to Harrah's, but I think it is the same as Horseshoe. there are no 4 deck shoes any where in Tunica.

Default Tunica

Just got back - Tunica games have gone down hill since I was there last year, poor pen, bj w/ 3 card poker everywhere (which means csm's), and 6/5 is spreading like Paris Hilton's legs - more details to follow later. On the bright side, I tried the Range at Roadhouse and it was pretty good.

Default Tunica

I rarely play in any of the places you mentioned. I usually spread 1-20 in some of the other places on double deck games with red chips and haven't had any trouble yet. Most games in Tunica are pitch, with all I've seen being hit hard 17. Seems like most of the shoe games have 8 decks.

Default Conditions

From a trip during the week

Hollywood = shoe games (das, rsa, h17, $5 min, do not recall decks or pen) and 3 bj w/ 3 card poker (w/csm's) no DD

Fitz = no shoes, 1 bj w/ 3 card poker (w/csm), all others were DD (das, rsa, h17, $5 min, 50% pen) was told SD would open by request, $50 min, not sure about other rules. Heard checks play called when going from 1 to 8 on DD

Roadhouse = 6 or 8 deck shoes (das, rsa, h17, $5 min, pen 65%), DD was both 6/5 and 3/2 with das, rsa, h17, $5 min. Also had bj w/ 3 card poker (w/csm).

None of the above offered SD (except Fitz by request). Saw many plopps get comped food at Fitz after playing 2 or 3 shuffles (bought in for $20 to $40 each)

Games appear to have gone down hill due to pen compared to 6 months ago. Did not visit other places. Good Luck

Default asm's not csm's

A minor point. I think vegas21 means automatic shuffling machines instead of continuous shuffling machines. I don't think there are any csm's in tunica.

Just returned yesterday from trip to Tunica.

Harrah's: has 4 or 5 DD tables at $25--3/2--H17---did not play this.
has several multideck shoe games at $5---H17--3/2--RSA to 4.

Roadhouse: had 2 tables open for DD at $10--H17--50% cut---3/2--DAS.
I think SD was 6/5 at one table---did not play.

Only places I played.

Horseshoe had DD at $15 and $25 min--3/2--DAS--not sure about pen

I hope this helps
