LAS VEGAS BLACKJACK REPORT:
MANDALAY BAY AND LUXOR
by KC Brooks
I have been addicted to blackjack ever since reading Revereís "Playing Blackjack as a Business" when I was 15. The art of blackjack is a lifetime endeavor. I went through the learning process backwards, learning Revereís Advanced Point Count first. I found out early that the actual count system is only a small piece of the puzzle. Presently, I travel "my" Devils Triangle (Reno, Wendover, Vegas}, playing mainly single- and double-deck games. Hi Lo is my choice of strategies and "Professional Blackjack" by Wong is my bible. I worship a large spread, and have been known to wong everywhere I go. Thank God I havenít had to register as a wonger yet, but I am sure it is not too far off. I also help fellow AP Nick teach card counting at www.Blackjackclassroom.com.
The observations of casino conditions were made in June 2012.
Mandalay Bay Casino
Located in the south end of the Strip, basically, the last casino on the right is Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Rising out of the desert like a shimmering bar of gold, Mandalay Bay is the ultimate in adult playgrounds. Connected at the hip is THEhotel, a luxurious tower also glimmering in the desert sun.
The resort includes 4,000 plus rooms, a 157,024 square foot casino with 2,000 slots, 200 table games, a shark reef, and an eleven-acre tropical paradise, making Mandalay Bay one of the largest resorts on the Strip.
Three pools (topless included), a river, and a 1.6 million gallon wave pool, complete with a sandy beach containing 2,700 tons of sand, are a few of the amenities offered at this high-end resort. As with most of MGMís properties, the dining possibilities are endless. Hubert Keller, Wolfgang Puck, and Charlie Palmer are just a few of the celebrity chefs offering up culinary delights.
The casino itself, with its tropical environment and exotic architecture, offers a variety of table games, including baccarat, blackjack, craps, and roulette make up the majority of table games. The casino also has a 300-seat sportís book with 117 televisions, and a ten-table poker room. There are an incredible number of craps tables, with 3x/4x/5x odds offered.
Most impressive were the quality of blackjack games offered, but beware because there were also some duds...
