Blackjack with poorer payouts making headway in Vegas

Las Vegas Sun,  Friday, June 18, 2010 at 12:27:08 PM

The payoff for blackjack has dropped at more Las Vegas tables, but the trade-off is that minimum bets for those games are a little lower.

In recent months, more than two dozen tables paying 6-5 for blackjacks have surfaced in Las Vegas, in some cases replacing games that paid the traditional 3-2. With the traditional payoff, a blackjack on a bet of $10 wins $15, but with 6-5 odds it wins only $12.

The spread of 6-5 games mirrors the rise of "party pits" -- nightclub-themed gambling areas with games dealt by attractive women in revealing outfits. These pits, found near bars and nightclubs, typically feature 6-5 games and appeal to customers for whom gambling isn't the main attraction. the source
