Default Puerto Rico

Anything specific you want to know? I live here and can tell you that most of the casinos on the island are in the san juan area. All blackjack games use six decks, dealer always stands on soft 17, doubling down after splits and re-splits are allowed (except aces), and most casinos allow you to double down on anything. Several casinos started to offer surrender a few years ago but I'm not aware of any which currently have it.

Penetration in general is pretty bad (I would say 4 out of 6 decks on average), but move around and with some luck you can find 5 out of 6 penetration every now and then. No heat, very easy to do bet variation up to $100-$150 (my opinion).

Do you know anything about rules, the comp system, and was it sweaty?

Yes, one box (that's what I do). Doing the same spread x 2 boxes in my opinion would be a red flag here.

Moo,
All the games that I saw in San Juan were 6d, S17, DAS, NRSA, No Surrender.
The tables had signs saying something like Double only on 11 or less, but they allowed me to double on soft hands; I don't understand what they were trying to restrict, other than the crazy ploppies that double on 12.
There didn't seem to be much heat, but I didn't get to play too much since I was with the family. I did Wong in on a number of positive shoes with no heat, but I only play red/green.

I'll be making a trip to New Orleans, so I'd be interested in any info you have.

I'm heading to Puerto Rico in about 6 weeks. Will be staying in the San Juan area. Any new updates or recommendations?

Thanks!

It's all shoe games. Several places have good pen. When I was there, several casinos were completely dead on day shift.

Table max was usually $200 on the lower limit games, maybe $500 on higher limit. Carny game limits were much lower.
