Las Vegas Six- and Eight-Deck Blackjack Survey

Nearly every Las Vegas casino offering table games deals a six- or eight-deck blackjack game. The house edge between the two is only about 0.02%. For this reason, we combine them into the same page. Some casinos deal both a six- and eight-deck game. In general, the six-deck game is in high-limit, while the eight-deck game is on the main casino floor.

Most casinos along the Las Vegas Strip, plus a few downtown and locals casinos, deal 6:5 shoe games. These are typically at lower-limit tables. We do not include these in the report. However, in many cases, it does not take that much higher of a bet to get the 3:2 payout. In some cases, it can even be the same minimum bet at both tables.

Make sure to read the felt or sign at each table to determine the payout before sitting. We do not include these games on the list below. However, you can find them on the casino listings within the geographical sections of the survey. 

The following information was collected during March 2022. The minimum bets shown are what we predict the lowest you will find, often in mornings and afternoons. Expect higher minimums during busy times.
