I have seen similar machines where it notes that the deck will be shuffled after each hand, FWIW. I would assume others would be in the same vein.

I've never seen that on these machines. It states the machine uses six decks with a shuffle after 2/3rds are dealt, but identifying the shuttle point is not easy.

as late as this april.....
the Trop has both, errhh by both i mean machines that shuffle after every round ($1 denom) and machines that shuffle after 2/3rds six pack dealt ($2 &$3 denom)...... the rules are stated on the machines......
but yeah, you can't tell when the shuffle occurs far as i know.

Where in the Trop are there Virtual BJ machines that shuffle after every round? The virtual let it ride, 3CP and Texas Hold Em games do, but all the BJ games are six deckers, unless they changed them since mid- Feb.

yes they must have changed them shad....... the virtual bj machines at the Trop are arranged (along with the 3cp & let it ride machines) in a sort of oval configured area along side the table game area.
one of the virtual bj machines was $1 denomination, that machine was configured to shuffle each round.
the higher denomination virtual bj machines, errh, i believe they were $2 & $3, were configured to shuffle after 2/3 of a six deck pack was dealt.

as a side note, i'll just say i've seen $5 denomination virtual bj machines that are configured to shuffle each round at other joints in the mid-west, while others are configured to shuffle after 2/3 of a six deck pack have been dealt..... apparently these machines can be configured over a very wide array of rules & conditions.

Damn.
A H17, DA2,DAS, LS, SD game is just about break-even, isn't it?

The answer may be THEORETICALLY correct but who knows what kinds of tricks are played.

I know of a game which on appearance is even better but I have serious concerns after the time I've put in and the loss I've incurred.

These are ShuffleMaster games being played in a licensed casino. I'd be much more worried about being cheated by a rogue dealer than by these machines.

i'm pretty sure the shuffle after each round machine was six deck.
funny you should say DAS, errhh i really can't remember if those machines were DAS, errhh i think they were though........ strange if they were in fact DAS as i wasn't able to find a DAS bj table game in Laughlin...... a pit boss at the Trop told me there was only one joint in Laughlin that had DAS but i never determined which joint it was.

either way, 2/3 deck is still 66% pen. not worth counting, and actually worse off for you since the HE can now increase as the tens and aces come out of the shoe.

oh yea, SD LS machines are about .10 HE. way better than playing JOB.
