Blackjack and Table Games Found in Six Strip Casinos

On April 19, 2024, Vegas Advantage surveyed six casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. The properties included were Palazzo, Venetian, Treasure Island, Mirage, Caesars Palace, and Bellagio. The casinos were visited in that order. John usually covers video poker and table games, while Kristina gathers the electronic table game information. Unfortunately, Kristina sprained her ankle during our Summerlin survey and could not walk for this. John handled all the data for this survey.

There were a few changes. Most of the games remained the same with some changes in minimum bets.

The big change at Palazzo is that Spanish 21 is gone. The 6/5 eight-deck blackjack, triple zero roulette, Mississippi Stud, and Three Card Poker tables were $15. The $25 blackjack games were 6/5 double deck and Free Bet. The craps games, double zero roulette, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em were $25. Pai gow poker and 3/2 blackjack started at $50. Baccarat and single zero roulette were $100. The salon blackjack games had $200 and higher minimum bets.

Palazzo increased its already wide selection of electronic table games. Heads-up Easy Craps is now available. Other heads-up options include 6:5 blackjack, craps, and 00 roulette. Baccarat is offered on a Casino Wizard machine. Multiplayer options include 3:2 blackjack, Shoot to Win craps, and 00 roulette. All ETGs have a $5 minimum, except for Casino Wizard games which are available for $3.


Venetian is the last Las Vegas casino with Spanish 21. It was $25 along with double zero roulette and 6/5 double-deck blackjack. The poker pit games were all $15 along with craps, crapless craps, triple zero roulette, and 6/5 blackjack. It takes $50 to get 3/2 blackjack. Face Up Pai Gow Poker was also $50. Baccarat and single zero roulette were $100. High-limit blackjack tables started at $200.

Electronic table game options still include various heads-up and multiplayer machines as well as two stadiums. One stadium offers live dealer games. Most games have a $5 minimum.

Treasure Island

Treasure Island continues to expand its electronic table game selection. The back of the main pit now has two $10 hybrid blackjack tables. These pay 3/2 but do not permit surrender or re-split aces like the live games do. There is also a poor rule that only allows pairs to be split once. These tables use a continuous shuffling machine. The live stadium and other electronic table games, including $5 hybrid craps, are still available. 

All table games appear to start at $15 now. The $15 games dealt during our visit were 6/5 single deck, 3/2 double deck, and 3/2 six-deck blackjack, as well as craps, double zero roulette, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Pai Gow Poker. The high limit games start at $50.


Mirage continues to deal $10 table games. The 6/5 blackjack and triple zero roulette tables are $10, as are the poker pit games that require raises like Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em. Double zero roulette and dice games are $15. It takes $25 to get 3/2 blackjack. Face Up Pai Gow Poker is also $25. High limit games start at $100.

The multiplayer big six wheel is missing from the casino floor. The remaining electronic table game options include heads-up 6:5 blackjack and craps for $5 and two multiplayer 00 roulette machines. Dual Wheel roulette has a $3 minimum, but it takes $5 to play Golden Ball roulette.

Mirage closes on July 17, 2024, for a three-year renovation project. It will reopen as Hard Rock.

Caesars Palace

Caesars Palace was very slow. The poker pit under the dome had all $15 games. There was even a $25 3/2 blackjack table there. All craps and roulette tables were $25. Face Up Pai Gow Poker and most 3/2 blackjack games were $50. The baccarat in the pit was $100. The salon started at $200.

The electronic table game selection was the same as our last visit. This includes a multiplayer 000 roulette machine that should be avoided. On the stadium, big six has a $3 minimum. All other ETG options are $5. Games are in heads-up, multiplayer, or stadium format. Players can find baccarat, big six, 6:5 blackjack, craps, easy craps, and 00 roulette.


The last stop on the route was Bellagio. The biggest change is that Bellagio now has European Roulette on the floor again. It was only $50. The limits were lower than usual for most games. The 6/5 blackjack tables, Crazy 4 Poker, Mississippi Stud, Three Card Poker, and triple zero roulette were $15. The $25 tables were craps, crapless craps, double zero roulette, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em. The 3/2 blackjack tables on the floor and pai gow tiles were $50.

Baccarat started at $100. The six-deck stand on soft 17 blackjack game was $100, which is often $300 at busy times. The stand on soft 17 double-deck table was $300. It is often $500.

Bellagio still offers a selection of heads-up, multiplayer, and stadium games. Side bets were no longer listed on heads-up blackjack machines. However, side bets were still offered on the stadium. A few stadium options have $3 minimums. All other games are available for $5. Options include baccarat, 6:5 blackjack, craps, and 00 roulette.

Bonus coverage

I walked back up the other side of the Strip on the way back to my car. Paris and Horseshoe both have hybrid Interblock stadium craps for $5. This is Horseshoe’s second attempt at it.

I saw the Fortune Pai Gow Poker table at Paris open and saw quarters, which is rare. Most Fortune tables have a queen-high push instead of commission. Players may also bank this game. It is one of the last old school pai gow tables left. 

Let It Ride returned to Paris. It is in the same pit as pai gow. 

Cromwell added a new pit of table games. It did not add any new titles. The six-deck stand on soft 17 blackjack game was open with a $50 minimum bet. It is the only pit blackjack table in Las Vegas that stands on soft 17. (Update: This was originally published in May for our Vegas Advantage subscribers. A player reported that the Cromwell stand on soft 17 table is gone.)
