Single Deck in Las Vegas

Navigation: Las Vegas Blackjack > Single Deck Blackjack

Single deck blackjack is often advertised as the way to be the house. Experienced card counters have been known to take advantage of the game and over the years most casinos decided to start paying 6-5 on a natural. Every Las Vegas Strip casino short pays its single deck blackjack games. Three downtown casinos still offer 3-2 odds on its single decks.

The casinos with full pay single deck blackjack are The D, El Cortez and Binion’s. All three of these casinos have the same rules. Players can only double down on a 10 or 11. Double down after splitting is not allowed and the dealer hits soft 17. These games are normally dealt out of a shoe, although players may touch the cards like a pitch game.

The minimum bet at The D and El Cortez is $5, while Binion’s offers this game with a $25 minimum. Riviera offered this game during our 2013 survey. This game is no longer available there.

The single deck games that pay 6-5 often allow players to double any two cards and double down after splitting. This barely offsets the short pay on blackjack. The dealer always hits a soft 17 in Las Vegas single deck blackjack.
