Default Boomtown Casino Fort McMurray, Alberta

They have 5-100, 10-200, and 25-500 tables, all with the following rules:

4D H17 DAS DOA
They allow double/insure for less and early surrender. Penetration is about 75%, dealer does not take a hole card.

Are you sure that all of the tables are 4 Deck? Last time i was there they were all 6 Deck. Also, do you know when they open up the 25-500 table?

EDIT- and before anyone gets all excited and drives into the middle of nowhere, it is only ESv10, not full early surrender.

My mistake I just clarified with them that it's ES10 over the phone.

I am sure they are 4D, and I believe the 25-500 tables open on weekend evenings, not sure about during the week. I will double check when I go Saturday.

Had a good night here on saturday, but sweet merciful lord almighty are there some horrible players here! I was at a full table and everyone, everyone I saw that night didn't understand "don't hit your 15 vs 6" and so on. I know it's common to find people that don't even know BS but come on...

Lucky lucky turned out to pay quite well. I simply bet it whenever the count was lower and I kicked some tail; after hitting a couple suited 21's (15-1) the ploppies were eyeing me.

Default limits

Those are actually not too bad limits for the area. Most places around there will only have a spread of 20x. So like 10-200 for example. A lot of the other places that I play at only have a 10x spread, and given the shitty rules, it basically becomes unplayable from a play all standpoint unless other forms of AP are used.

A lot of smaller casinos won't put big spreads like the corporate casinos.

Do they not allow big spreads because they don't want counters playing so aggressively or because they cant handle the swings (or some other reason)?

Most likely because they are stupid. If you can't think of a reason, this is always the fallback response .
