Default Current Australia Wide Conditions

Hello fellow Australians! I'm trying to gather information on the current conditions Australia wide. Yes, all of them.


Sky City, Adelaide

Jupiters, Gold Coast

Star City, Sydney

Burswood, Perth

Treasury Casino, Brisbane

Wrest Point, Hobart

Casino Canberra

Jupiters Townsville

Launceston Country Club

Sky City Darwin

The Reef, Cairns

Lasseters, Alice Springs

I deliberately excluded Crown as I am well versed in their conditions. I'm really looking for info on current rules (I'm sure many of them have changed since I last checked, particularly the S/H17 rule), decks employed and MOST importantly, whether or not CSMs are used. If not, are shoe games easily accessible or for HL play only?

It would be great to get a COMPREHENSIVE database of the current Australian conditions. So please, take the time to contribute should you possess the answers.

Thank you!

Casino Canberra

Casino Canberra is a small one room casino. The outside walls are dirty and covered in spider webs. It is understandable if you think you have just walked into a makeshift casino in someones basement.There are no pokies there, this is one of the reasons its so poor. There 'live entertainment' was one lady with a guitar playing and singing songs..

All tables (BJ and pontoon) are all CSM, even the high tables.

There is an exception on Friday nights, or when it gets really busy (which hardly ever happens). They open one shoe game of BJ and one of Pontoon (min $10 max $500) The rules are the same that are on their website, BJ is 6 decks and about 1 to 1.5 cut (last time i was there anyway)

Star City:

6 decks, Dealer STANDS on 17, DAS allowed, no surrender, double on 9,10,11 only. I calculated the house advantage to be 0.63%. Entirely CSM based.

in Australia, we call slot machine, poker machine or pokies. The term slot machine is rarely used in Australia.

I made a mistake in my earlier post about Star City. The dealer STANDS on 17. I was reading up on Crown just before writing the post and got mixed up. My apologies.

Pity you have to play $50 a hand to get such conditions! Thank you though for your information. Is it easy to access the $50+ games, however?
