North Las Vegas Strip Blackjack Survey 2019

North Vegas Blackjack CasinosSome of the best blackjack on the Las Vegas Strip may be found on its northern end. That is because Treasure Island is in this section and that is our top choice for low limit blackjack on the Las Vegas Strip. There are also some terrible blackjack games that should be avoided.

Casino Royale

Casino Royale spreads three types of blackjack. The best is Blackjack Switch. There is also a single deck blackjack table and three 6-5 Free Bet Blackjack tables. All tables hit soft 17. The minimum is $5 for all games.

Circus Circus

Circus Circus has 2 sigle deck tables. It has a minimum bet of $10 and $15. It pays 3-2 on a blackjack. This is the best blackjack game at Circus Circus. The only other live blackjack game at Circus Circus uses eight decks and pays 6-5 on a natural. It has a $5 minimum bet.

Encore

Encore is Wynn’s sister property. Encore offers lower limit games that are available at Wynn.
The best blackjack game at Encore is a six-deck shoe that has a $100 minimum bet. It permits double down before and after splitting, as well as surrender and re-split aces. Blackjack pays 3-2. This is the only game at Encore that stands on all 17s.

There is a double deck game in the baccarat pit that pays 3-2 and has a minimum bet of $50, depending on the time of day. Double down before and after splitting are available.

The only other 3-2 blackjack game at Encore is a six-deck $25 one. It has the same rules as the high limit shoe, except that the dealer hits soft 17.

Palazzo

Palazzo is the sister property to Venetian. Players will need to meet the $100 minimum bet to get into a 3-2 game. The options are a double deck that permits double down before and after splitting, and a six-deck game that adds surrender and re-split aces. These games hit soft 17. There is a $100 six-deck game in the high limit salon that stands on all 17s. Palazzo also has $25 Spanish 21.

Sahara Las Vegas

There are two 3-2 blackjack games at Sahara Las Vegas. One is a six-deck shoe with a $100 minimum. It has double down before and after splitting, surrender and re-split aces. This game stands on 17. For $100, players will find a game with these rules in high limit that stands on all 17s. There is also a $10 Blackjack Switch table.
On August 2019 the hotel and casino officially announce the change from SLS Las Vegas to Sahara Las Vegas.

Stratosphere

Stratosphere now only offers 3-2 blackjack game spreads. The six-deck games start at just $5, the cheapest of anywhere on the Las Vegas Strip. There is also a $25 double-deck game. Both allow double down before and after splitting. The dealer hits soft 17.

Treasure Island

Most Treasure Island Casino blackjack tables spread 3-2. You will be able to find six-deck games that start at just $5. They also offer a single deck table, but it’s not a table we recommend. There are three great double deck tables with a minimum $25 double deck. They allow double down before and after splitting. The dealer hits soft 17.

Venetian

Like Palazzo, players must sit at a $50 table to get a 3-2 game. The options include a double deck with double down before and after splitting and a six-deck shoe that adds surrender and re-split aces. Both games hit soft 17. For $100, players will get a six-deck game that stands on all 17s.

Wynn

Wynn offers three different 3-2 blackjack games. Players will find a $25 six-deck game that allows double down before and after splitting, surrender and re-split aces. The dealer hits soft 17. During the slowest of periods, it may be just $15, though that has become increasingly unlikely. There is also a $100 double-deck game that hits soft 17 with double down before and after splitting. The stand on all 17 shoe games require a $200 minimum and are only found in the high limit salon.
