Best Six-Deck Blackjack Games in Las Vegas 2018

The best odds in Las Vegas blackjack games tend to be on single and double deck tables. Some players still prefer a six-shoe over those games. There are several in Las Vegas that offer favorable rules to players.

Playing Six-Deck Blackjack on Las Vegas

The best six-deck blackjack games in Las Vegas stand on all 17s. Players may double down on any two cards and after splitting. These games also permit surrender and re-split aces up to four hands. The house edge in this game is 0.26%.
The casinos with these rules are listed below. The typical minimum bet is listed next to it.

  • Aria: $100
  • Bellagio: $100
  • Cosmopolitan: $100
  • Encore: $100
  • M Resort: $50
  • MGM Grand: $50
  • Mandalay Bay: $100
  • Mirage: $100
  • Palazzo: $100
  • SLS Las Vegas: $100
  • Treasure Island: $25
  • Tropicana: $100
  • Venetian: $100
  • Wynn: $200

Caesars and Station Casinos do not permit re-split aces in the stand on 17 shoes. This bumps the house edge up to 0.33%. These casinos generally have a $100 minimum bet. The games are found in the high limit lounge.

Bighorn and Longhorn Casinos Offer Odd Advantageous Rule

Bighorn and Longhorn Casinos are locals’ joints. Bighorn Casino is located on East Lake Mead in North Las Vegas. Longhorn is located at the corner of Harmon and Boulder Highway. These two casinos permit double down on any two cards and after splitting, as well as surrender and re-split aces. The dealer hits soft 17. These tables have a $5 minimum.

Bighorn and Longhorn offer players an unusual rule that is not found in any other traditional blackjack games in Las Vegas. Players may double down after hitting a card, something typically only found in Super Fun 21 and other carnival blackjack games that do not pay 3-2. This cuts the house edge nearly in half, making it 0.28%. This is only slightly worse than the high limit shoe games. That’s a great deal for a $5 game.
