Default Current rules and conditions in Edmonton

I've heard that, although rules are basically unchanged, pen has deteriorated in the last couple of years. Would appreciate an update. BTW, I realize that pen varies among stores - a rough idea of the available range would be sufficient. Also, since some here may play these games regularly, the SCORE for the average 75% pen 4-deck game ES10 game (which sounds like the most common), would also be helpful.

I only saw the casino in West Edmonton Mall. They were all 6 deck, machine shuffle and dealt from a shoe. The limits were 10 to 500 I think. No 5 dollar tables except on weekends after 7. 1.5 pen. They didn't deal a hole card and didn't offer surrender against aces, so I guess that would be ES10. Is that better or worse then LS?

If they end up with a natural they only take your original bet.

Re-splitting aces were allowed. DAS, double any 2 cards. Not sure if there was a limit to any splits or not. The most splits I saw were up to three hands. I would guess a limit of 4 hands though.

They had a high limits area but I never went in. Not sure what games they have in there.

That's all I can remember. Probably could have typed that in a couple lines if I knew all the abbreviations for the rules xD

Palace in West Edmonton Mall was 10 to 400 when I was there a year ago. They also offered a high limit game of 25-1000 but you had to ask for it basically. .75-1 deck cut off out of 6 very consistent. Also, when I was there they had their shuffle procedure written on the table in tape lol. 2-6, 1-3, 4-5 etc.

Hi Meistro,

Thanks to all who replied in this thread, although it took only 10 months!

Re Palace in WE Mall, there seems to be a discrepancy between you and the other poster who said pen is 1.5 decks. Are you sure about .75-1.00, or could the other poster be right, because he was there more recently and pen had deteriorated?

Thanks for any feedback.

Cheers,

BJ Warrior

My deck estimation isn't the greatest. It might have been a little better. But I doubt it was any lower then 1 deck.
