UPDATE ON TUNICA BLACKJACK CONDITIONS
by Jerry "Stickman"
Jerry "Stickman" has been an advantage blackjack player for nearly three decades. He used the High-Low Count for most of that time. Currently he uses Speed Count. Although sacrificing some advantage, Jerry states the simplicity of Speed Count made blackjack a fun game for him to play once again. Craps (dice control) and full pay video poker are also in his arsenal of advantage play tools. He is currently an instructor for Golden Touch Blackjack and Golden Touch Craps.

In the February Blackjack Insider I reported on blackjack conditions at the nine casinos in Tunica. I tend to play blackjack at only one or two of them and I was shocked to see the poor games that were being offered at the casinos where I did not play.
One of the major contributors to a positive blackjack game is good penetration. In the past, penetration in Tunica has typically been very good. That is not what I found in February. Penetration of 50 percent – or less – on double-deck games was the norm. Six-deck games were not much better with 60-67 percent being common. Combine this with the growing appearance of games paying the miserable 6 to 5 for a natural and the landscape was looking indeed bleak.
Were the February results merely an unfortunate blip in the blackjack landscape? Has the "Harrahs-ization" of the best casino for table games in Tunica plus two other excellent properties spoiled the once very lucrative opportunities? Has the arrival of Colony Capital helped or hurt blackjack in Tunica?
