Blackjack House Edge Lowest In Pennsylvania Casinos

The Independent Regulatory Review Commission of the state of Pennsylvania recently requested the Gaming Control Board to check the Blackjack house advantage in PA casinos as compared to those in other states such as New Jersey.

In the state of Pennsylvania, the game of blackjack has a lower house advantage than other games as compared to various jurisdictions, which means players have a better chance of winning in this state. The game of blackjack has many varieties, and there are different rules that are applicable for blackjack. This makes blackjack good for the house or good for the players depending on the rules.

For Pennsylvania, the rules were set in July 2010 and the house advantage is less than 0.4% if players stick to the basic strategy, which is based on the computer driven concept.

The commission talks about having rules that are “consistent with legislative intent” and they are also interested in knowing how these regulations will affect the economy. This comparison will determine whether the rules are in favor of the people or against them.

Weakening blackjack rules increases the casino revenue and affects the player’s pockets. More casino revenue means more tax for the state, and so it is understandable what rules will apply. The best thing to do now would be to make the existing rules permanent.
