Cosmopolitan: 6:5 Blackjack

In response to Mike's recent rant, a very reliable source inside the Brillo Pad (thank you Steve) has told us that the Cosmopolitan will offer their guests the opportunity to be paid 6:5 on all natural blackjacks.

Looks like there is no need for MGM to hire the human arrows now... we'll have no difficulty finding ARIA when it is time to hit the tables.

And the bloom continues to fall off of the rose.

Vielen Dank Deutsche Bank.

Oh HELL no. Now I'm pissed.

On my jaunt through the casino, I did see "All Blackjacks paid 6 to 5" on the two single-deck games. It's on the felts in big red letters and is pretty hard to miss. I didn't see it on the non-single-deck games throughout the casino.

If it is only on the 6:5 games, that's unfortunate, but not that out of line with what you'd find elsewhere.

Just about every casino now has some 6:5 blackjack. The question will be how many of the tables are 6:5.....hopefully just relegated to the two single-deckers Dave mentioned.

Is this really a surprise to anyone? Show me the Strip casino that doesn't have a few 6:5 on the floor?

Dave sounds right on this one. I'd assume it's just the single deck. I'd be floored if the regular shoe games are 6 to 5. Not even Harrah's has ALL 6 to 5 games.

"the Cosmopolitan will offer their guests the opportunity to be paid 6:5 on all natural blackjacks"

I assume this means Dr. Dave is right and this just means 6:5 on single-deck blackjack. I expected this. Come on, what Strip casino these days would offer better odds on one of the easiest games for players to outsmart the casino?

The Westward Ho and Circus Circus used to :(

I hate the idea of 6:5 Blackjack, but I am a cheap gambler and look to play $5 hands anyhow. I can't get bent out of shape that a casino might pay me $1.50 less than they used to (although this summer Fremont was still paying 3:2 on all tables I saw.) And maybe $10 players on the strip should just consider it increased overhead. But are they actually paying 6:5 on higher tables.....$25, $50, $100 hands? That they would pay only $120 instead of $150 on a $100 bet is where the 6:5 becomes outrageous. Anybody know if table minimum bets are a factor in whether it's 6:5 or 3:2? And please don't mock me for my $5 bets :) lol

This shouldn't surprise anybody as there's 6:5 across the strip. I have to imagine higher limits will pay 3:2. We'll see in two weeks.
