"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. "

Card Counting in Downtown Las Vegas



My friend and I who is here on business decided to venture downtown a few nights ago to see if there were any playable Blackjack games.  To our surprise there appears to be a “Blackjack renaissance” at some of the casinos in the area.  We were pleasantly surprised.  Here are our stats from approx. 90 minutes of play.

Binions – single deck, 3/2, $25 min, bet spread $25-$150, bought in for a total of $400, cashed out for $1000, time played – under 30 min.  Heat: mild heat on the bigger bets.  Net: $600.

Las Vegas Club – double deck, 3/2, $15 min, bet spread $15-$200, bought in for a total of $400, cashed out for $1400, time played – under 30 min.  Heat:  no heat until the end, PB scowling as we colored up.  Net: $1000

Golden Nugget – double deck, 3/2, $25 min, bet spread $25-$225, bought in for a total of $600, cashed out for $3000, time played – less than 30 min.  Heat: No heat from pit, but pretty sure the eye was evaluating our play.  Net: $2400.

Final stats:  Total net: $4000, 90 minutes.  Just like how it’s supposed to be done.  Don't stay too long at a casino, hit them hard and fast, cash out big!

  1. Your friend is going to think that you do that each and every night! He will never believe that some nights you do get heat and some nights despite good counting skills, you still lose.

  2. Yeah, we gave back $2k of it the next day, but overall we were up over $6k at the end of the trip. Have been on the bad end of it also -- lost $4k at the M a few months ago in less than 30 min. The variance and volatility involved in card counting can be very hard to deal with
