    Nooksack River Casino in Abbotsford BC.

    I read that they offer double deck games on there website. Can anyone confirm this, or is it 6:5 blackjack? Do they deal double deck from a CSM? Would they maybe only deal one hand before a shuffle? Awful rules?

    Or is it maybe a good game?

    Dreadful place to play.

    The only casino that I could locate named Nooksack River Casino is in nearby Bellingham, Washington State.

    (Dead link:

    The Casino is basically unplayable.

    Limited Hours. Penetration is dealer dependent. Oddly: those playing three spots "MUST bet table max"

    House Edge at their tables vary from .54% to .74%

    There are only a few tables. All tables are H17.

    Two 6 deckers with 1 deck cut off $3 to $250 H17 LS House Advantage is .54% Penetration is reportedly 1.0 deck.

    Three 2 deckers with 1 deck cut off $5 to $250 H17 LS Double on 11. 10 only House Advantage is .74% Penetration is reportedly .7 decks cut off.

    One table of Spanish21 6 deck H17 House Advantage is .76% Penetration is reportedly 1.0 deck.

    Furthermore, they should change their name to something which sounds less like "nutsack".

    That's the site I saw, but the casino was in BC.

    Probably the same rules for the double deck games though. I thought being double deck it might make up for some of the bad rules, guess not.

    No seats

    they have only one bj table open-mostly 6deck. They do open 1 table of 2-deck in the evening,, It's fully crowded with white chip ploppies..
    @OP, Are you visiting BC? Or Are you from BC?

    From BC but visiting in a difference area of it right now. I was taking a look at some of the casinos in town. I saw the double deck game and thought that there might be a chance at playing a decent game, even if it was a small chance.

    The casino is definitely in WA, not BC. It is very near the border though. It is *not* in Bellingham, but more like an hour inland from there. At one time their DD game was actually pretty damn good, but I haven't been there in years.

    When was the last time you were here? I have been to all of these places very recently, and they are all CSM. I have read the BC regulations, and all blackjack has to be dealt out of a CSM. I tried to find the place where I read this but i conveniently can't locate it again, I'll try again later though. The reason why they are all CSM tables is because if the casino wanted to change any part of their table games pits, they would have to be "up to code" on what the new regulations stated...and this included CSM's. This is at least the way I remember reading it. Apparently the last shoe game was/is in Burnaby at the Great Canadian Casino, but I'm pretty sure that is now gone also.

    If you are successful wonging in in the high limit you will likely be the one that kills it. These games have better rules because high limit wonging is risky for them. They want to offer a good enough game to attract high rollers but keep out the wonging threat. It is nice because of the added benefit of guaranteeing nobody joins your shoe in progress. You work a good count and it is yours when playing head to head. You can always leave if it gets bad (wong out).
