Minimum Bet for 3:2 Blackjack at Las Vegas Casinos

All Las Vegas Strip casinos, as well as some in the downtown and locals markets, short-pay some blackjack tables with a 6:5 payout. The list below shows the minimum bet it takes for you to find a 3:2 blackjack table so that you can get the best game for your bankroll.

The minimum bets and rules listed are based on my observations when visiting Las Vegas casinos in December 2019. Minimum bets may increase during peak hours or due to a policy change.

The list assumes that the game is a six or eight-deck shoe with double down before and after splitting and the dealer hitting soft 17. If there is a variation from these rules, it is included in parenthesis.

Las Vegas casinos with no 3:2 blackjack games

There are three Las Vegas casinos with table games that do not offer any traditional 3:2 blackjack games. Those casinos are Binion’s, Casino Royale and O’Sheas. I found 3:2 tables with a forced $1 side bet at Binion’s but no other ones. The other two casinos have no 3:2 tables of any kind, based on my observations.
