Single Deck in Las Vegas
Navigation: Las Vegas Blackjack > Single Deck Blackjack
Single deck blackjack in Las Vegas is harder to find than it once was. Most of the casinos that still offer it have terrible rules. There are a few exceptions.
There are three casinos in our Las Vegas survey that offer 3-2 blackjack on a single deck game. All hit soft 17 but have different rules about doubling down.
The best single deck 3-2 blackjack game is at El Cortez. It permits players to double down on any two cards and after splitting. The other tables that pay 3-2 on a blackjack only permit double downs on 10 and 11. These are available at 4Queens and Silverton. Our last survey had one of these games at Binion’s. That is now at 4Queens. All Binion’s blackjack games now pay 6-5, regardless of the number of decks used.
There are many places to play single deck blackjack on the Las Vegas Strip. All pay 6-5. Most permit double down on any two cards. These casinos include Treasure Island, Wynn, Stratosphere and Harrah’s. Circus Circus and Caesars Palace only permit doubling down on 10 and 11.
Most Las Vegas Strip resorts stopped offering single deck blackjack. It was the first game that casinos started paying 6-5 on a blackjack. Most players continued to give 6-5 single deck games action. The casinos decided to start short-paying its shoe games. This adds some to the house edge, as well as allows the casinos to deal more hands per hour, especially when the game is dealt out of a continuous shuffle machine.
Most Las Vegas Strip single deck blackjack games have a $15 minimum bet. All have a house edge between 1.7% and 2%.
