    I wonder how many times those petite little vixen dealers have dumped the cards all over the table and floor while trying to load 8 decks into the shoe. Whoops! I’ll bet they never even thought about that aspect of it.

    I got a dealer that splits the shoe to load it. The dealer usually exposes the midshoe bottom card. I count the card as discarded until it approaches in the shoe. Any little edge you can get.

    Nice! I’ll watch for that next time.

    Confirmed that all blackjack (even hi-limit) are 8deck with about 2.5 decks cutoff and all ASM.

    There is one DD game which is, well pm me for details if you want ($25 min) but ridiculously they have one guy hired whose entire job it seems is to scowl at people who walk by it. Also I found one or two lucky dealers. But besides that this place is pretty lame.

    Even the CARNIVAL games have the lowest odds possible.

    The buffet is really nice for the MI area and the parking is easy/convienent, and the place is MASSIVE.

    I was there about 2 weeks ago and Hi limit was still 6D. The cut varied with dealer but was around 1.5. The limits were 25-500, 50-1000, 100-2000. My advised, don’t play there shoes. You can do better then that

    I was there MORE recent than that but it IS possible there are some 6deck in there, there were no tables going (rest of casino was packed though) and I just assumed it was 8deck because I asked the dealer if it was the same as the main floor and he said, “yes” obviously I wanted to be inconspicuous so I just asked, “Oh like all the rules are the same and the cards derr” and he was like “Yes” and I started getting glared at by the pit so I just left.

    Also I’m 100% not surprised about the incident CP said about the AP getting backed off but the other parts ARE surprising AND upsetting but like I said there was a guy there who it seems his only job was to stare at that DD and I got scowled at for halfheartedly glancing at it while pretending to watch the football game. I actually thought I saw an AP at one point since he varied his bets wildly which sort of correlated at first but then he didn’t dbl 11 into a 5.

    Was there a week ago or so. The Hi Limit shoes are 6 Decks. Pen is nothing to brag about in those games, so don’t play them. DD is still being watched like a hawk. I had an average of 1.5 pit boss’ watching my table, maybe because there was a guy firing multiblacks, and most of the other tables at that time were empty. The DD on the main floor is a little “cooler”, but still be very careful in this place!!!
