    I banged away for 18 hours in a 3 day weekend at the Mandalay Bay with an 8 unit spread and i was staying there. I never got or even felt the slightest heat. And I walked away with $2760. I was playing rated too.

    I believe big player's list still leaves dozens and dozens of other casinos that you could play. Ignore his advice at your own risk.

    A $10-$80 spread is nothing to them. If more than that please let us know how it goes for you on return.

    I assume he probably did $25-200. Anything under $25 is CSMs

    I don't get this thread. I counted at plenty of these places and no one seemed to care. Are we saying that if I stayed past my welcome that the EITS would have gotten me?

    But I agree, TI is probably a sweatshop. I spent 15 minutes there and. I felt unwelcome.

    Think about what you just asked.. If you played at the places that are mentioned in this thread then consider yourself lucky for a couple reasons: 1.) you got to play some of the sweatiest joints in Vegas without your picture being shared 2.) You got to play some of the best BJ in Vegas at those sweat shops, without getting backed off.

    Although, it wouldn't be surprised if you get backed off upon your next return to most places listed in this thread if you won any money, or if the EITS sees any type of money movement with the count.

    Second, no one said you couldn't get a 2 or 3 shuffles in before grabbing your chips and rolling, nor did anyone say you will be backed off immediately after sitting down at a table- although that has happened to me at several of the places i mentioned, 0 hands played.

    I stayed at the Strat - played that polite spread there, am no longer welcome in table games. At least other backoffs elsewhere were at higher stakes.

    Other places to avoid at any stakes for blackjack
    Cosmo, Aria, SLS, Monte Carlo, NYNY, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Southpoint

    You should be ok everywhere else with reasonable precautions and as long as your action blends in. That means, as an example, don't go to Boulder Station and expect to play double deck spreading 2x$50 to 2x$500 and not get backed off on the second shuffle after you bet it up. There is really no place in Vegas anymore that will let you just sit there and bomb away for hours at a time. Stick and move my friend.

    Then there's those chemtrails you have to dodge.

    Gold Coast? South Point?

    Sweaty? Yes. Good games, not so much.
