Best casinos for blackjack?

Would like to hear your thoughts on the best locations for blackjack. Which casinos give the best odds?

I usually play $5, and $10 tables... occasionally betting $25. What gaming centers should I head to for those tables?

Thanks for your input!

You'll have a hard time finding $5 and $10 tables, maybe mid-week mornings/early afternoon you'll find some $10 tables.

"best odds" and $5 and $10 tables are mutually exclusive. Make fewer bets at $15-25+ tables that offer more favorable rules. Try Resorts, Golden Nugget for lowest minimums.

Pretty much every casino in AC has the same blackjack rules when it comes to blackjack payouts and dealer 17's. You will just see the rules vary from table to table, higher the minimum bet the better the odds are. Depending on when and where you go your going to have a tough time finding a $10 table, and nearly an impossible time finding a $5. On the weekends most tables are $15+, but theres a chance you could find a $10 at Resorts or Golden Nugget especially mid-week.

There are a few $5 6:5 tables at Bally’s Wild Wild West, but you will need to check the operating hours. I have seen several $10 3:2 tables at Resorts. It seems that table minimums increase in the evening. Most of the tables at Bally’s, Harrah’s and Caesars are 6:5 at $10-15.

Last time I was down, golden nugget had 10 dollar tables with 3:2 bj payout, been a little while, between Christmas and New Years last year on weekday, but we played all night and they didn't raise bets

Bally's and Caesars has 10 dollar black jack during the day on weekends. It switches to $15 and $25 later on in the evening on the weekends. Bally's wild wild west casino has $5 dollar black jack, 21 pays 6 to 5. Sometimes its hard to get a seat on the weekends. WWW casino open at 2pm and are open all night. Plus there's a DJ or live music which is a nice distraction lol

Thanks for all of your suggestions. I found $10 6:5 tables at each casino I went to. There were usually two of those tables with at least one of them having an open seat. I did see the Wild Wild West Casino having one $5 table. I wasn't expecting eight decks, though. I am used to four and six decks so that kind of surprised me.
