by KC Brooks

I have been addicted to blackjack ever since reading Revere's "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 Revere's 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 haven't 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 

Note: The observations of casino conditions were made in March 2016. The casinos visited in Las Vegas this month were:

Harrah's Casino (3475 Las Vegas Blvd. S)

The Linq Casino (3535 Las Vegas Blvd. S)

This month I am back fighting the traffic on the Strip, to check out the blackjack action at Harrah's and the Linq casinos. If you are visiting for the day, park in the back in the LINQ parking area; you can enter off of Koval Lane. You can't miss it, just look for a very large, white (High Roller) observation wheel.


Located near the heart of the strip, Harrah's is a good choice for the budget-minded visitor. Not only are the rooms relatively inexpensive, (compared to most Strip properties), but you will also find a variety of shows, bars, and restaurants to satisfy your needs. Moreover, if that is not enough, you're next door to The LINQ Promenade where you can hop on board the High-Roller observation wheel, or head across the street and see what the Roman neighbors at Caesars Palace are cooking up. There is also an active volcano that erupts nightly at the Mirage, if that is your cup of tea.

The Carnival Court offers live music, outdoor shops, and flair bartenders. It is located between Harrah's and The LINQ on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Harrah's has 2,526 rooms and suites, which is nothing to write home about, but adequate for the price. If you are looking for a view, you can upgrade to a room with a view of the High Roller observation wheel; however, you can see it from practically everywhere in the city, so why upgrade?

Food at Harrah's includes Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill, Harrah's Las Vegas Oyster Bar, which was voted 2015s best seafood by Las Vegas Review Journal, Flavors Buffet, and the Fulton street Food Hall. If you are looking for upscale, than hit the second floor and you will find a Ruth Chris Steak House.

The casino at Harrah's offers some 80-plus table games; blackjack, craps, roulette, Pai Gow, baccarat, and a variety of carnival games. There is a 17-table poker room, and a Race and Sport's Book.

On my visit, the casino was quite busy. The poker room had a majority of tables operating, and the table games were hopping as well. There are seven craps tables in one pit with table limits of $10-$5000 and offering 3x4x5x odds. The tables are about 12- feet long. There are six roulette tables spread throughout the casino.
