Pennsylvania’s Blackjack Games Better than Las Vegas Blackjack Offerings?

Recent news reports reveal that playing blackjack in Pennsylvania may work out to be far more lucrative for players than the games offered at the Las Vegas Casinos. This is because the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has established new rules for blackjack games that improve player advantage.

The Pennsylvania blackjack games offer players the benefit of a small house edge of 0.4% or even less. According to the Wizard of Odds’ blackjack house-edge calculator, this edge is superior to most blackjack games offered by the casinos in Vegas. In fact, competing against a 0.4 % house edge puts the odds in favour of the player and is almost a guaranteed win for blackjack players in Pennsylvania.

Players who prefer roulette or slots – games which are known to have an approximate house edge of 5.26% and 8% respectively – should consider the blackjack games in Pennsylvania if they want to make money while playing at a casino.

The new blackjack rules also permit dealers to stand on a soft 17, unlike Vegas casinos where dealers are allowed to hit on a soft 17. This rule has brought down the Pennsylvania’s house edge for the blackjack games by 0.22 percent.

If you can’t make the trip to either Pennsylvania or Las Vegas, play online blackjack at our editors choice casinos.
