    Baha Mar/Bahamas double deck

    I'm headed to Baha Mar this weekend and read they have double deck blackjack...was wondering if anything has any experience with it/how are the rules.

    i was flat bet in vegas about 20 years ago...oddly i went to atlantis about 8 more time before they just outright banned me from blackjack. guess i'll find out of baha mar will do the same but i suspect these places in the bahamas arnt as fast with that sort of thing.

    that feels quote ominous!!! do you mind being more specific? you think i get flat-bet very quickly? i feel like its more likely the double deck wont be open then me getting flat bet.

    spoke with my atlantis host about my experience, he said they just are not staffed as well as the vegas properties to monitor such things, hence the massive delay. maybe he was just giving me lip service

    To write something like this you must have a lot of experience in the Bahamas!
    Can you tell us if Baha Mar and Atlantis surveillance department are exchanging information on players?
    If you can confirm the DD game at Baha Mar, can you stipulate the rules? (not the pen, rules only).

    Hello CtLion, Please post a trip report in exchange for the info below, deal? Here are some headups: 1) The game is the best (except for caveat emptor.) 2) A dealer cuts out up to 40ish cards 3) rules are: S17 rsa das ls. 4) Here is a preferred strategy: it's OK to spread 1-5 (5) Here is the caveat emptor1: it's OK to lose $50,000. (6) Here is the caveat emptor2: it's NOT ok to win. (7) Be forewarned: a flat bet and or backed off @anytime. (8) Get a hold of "Gary" @Credit department if you need a financial-aid to fly home :wink:

    haha you got it. my host has confirmed the DD blackjack IS open but they only have 1 table. guessing it will be a $100 table...we'll see. and wow, those rules are VERY favorable. how long ago did you play? i've never seen LS in a double deck game. this is better than MGM rules in vegas! but cutting 40% is pretty brutal

    Baha Mar is opening an outdoor casino come July. Just in time for hurricane season.
