Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

Blackjack Hall of Shame

The Blackjack Hall of Shame is devoted to those individuals and casinos who changed the game of blackjack by making the payout on a blackjack (Ace with a 10/face card) from 3/2 to 6/5. This change in payout which translates in a win to the player from 1.5x of their bet to 1.2x of their bet. This subtle but sinister change has made blackjack unplayable. If you factor in player errors in 6/5 blackjack you are far better to just sit like a pigeon at the double zero roulette table and blindly bet your money. If you play 6/5 blackjack, you are a sucker, ploppy, and dumb motherfucker. You get what you deserve...

The following individuals are the first two inductees to the Blackjack Hall of Shame. They are both CEO's of two of the largest gaming companies in the world and think it is perfectly acceptable to rip off customers in their casinos with 6/5 blackjack.

Gary Loveman
CEO, Harrah's

James Murren,
CEO, MGM Resorts International

New inductee to the Blackjack Hall of Shame:

Michael Gaughan, Owner
South Point Hotel and Casino
