Find the best blackjack tables in Las Vegas

The past year has been tumultuous for blackjack in Las Vegas. Many casinos, especially on the Vegas Strip, are changing rules of the game in order to increase the house edge and generate more profit. The casino business is in flux right now and trying to find ways to earn more revenue, while making their games more appealing to younger customers. That’s not an easy task.

Truth be told many of the younger casino customers weren’t alive in the “glory days of blackjack” and aren’t familiar with optimal blackjack strategy and counting cards to the point where the player could turn the house edge in their favor. The youngest visitors to Las Vegas may never know that you were paid 3:2 when being dealt blackjack instead of 6:5. Sure, everyone wants a fair game but some people are just looking for a fun time with a little blackjack and a few drinks. Here are 10 of the best places to play blackjack in Las Vegas.

6. The D

Blackjack at The D

Dancing dealers hit the casino floor at 6 p.m. and the party begins at The D in downtown Las Vegas. The music on the main casino floor almost doubles in volume at this time. Music is bumping, girls are dancing, drinks are flying and you have a good 3:2 blackjack game to enjoy. If you’re looking for a party atmosphere and low limits this is the casino for you.

7. Wynn

Customers at Wynn Las Vegas tend to be older and that makes for a more relaxed blackjack experience. You’ll often find older blackjack players to be more knowledgeable on the strategy which can make for a better experience than some of the low rolling games and party pits. Drinkers will notice that they’ll get some of the best drinks and drink service of any blackjack games on the Vegas Strip.

8. Linq

The Linq is right in the center of the Vegas Strip and often has a lot of people shuffling in and out of the casino. The property is marketed to younger customers but you’ll find people of all ages here. The vibe is laid back but fun. In fact, there’s really no specific vibe at The Linq and that allows people to be themselves. This makes for a low key but fun time at the blackjack tables.

9. The Palazzo

The Palazzo has massive and comfortable casino. Some might think the building is too large for their comfort but that’s what makes it a good place to play blackjack. Some of the excitement from the casino gets lost in the high ceilings. The tables are spaced wide enough apart so that you’re never back to back with someone. The table area is so long that you can almost always find a game. This is great for a larger group of people.

10. The Cosmopolitan

The Cosmo wasn’t built on people gambling. It’s one of the best properties for eating, drinking and clubbing. After opening, the Cosmo changed that up a little and opened the Bond blackjack pit just inside of the Vegas Strip entrances. There’s a DJ bumping jams, choreographed dancers in the middle of the games, shimmering tables and quick drink service. This is not subdued like the other blackjack games at the Cosmopolitan.
