Blackjack Minimums

Blackjack is a game that’s tough to find on the cheap. It’s incredibly popular, and people seem willing to play it at higher minimums because it has a relatively low advantage for the casino. That said, there are still some low minimum blackjack tables to find in Atlantic City. Here’s what to expect.

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship when it comes to weekday night stays. On one hand, I enjoy the cheaper accommodations, and the table minimums tend to be much lower. On the other, you don’t get the same amount of excitement and energy that you’ll see in a casino on the weekend. This is especially true if you’re playing a more social game like Craps, which you can check out here.

Weekend stays will demand a premium in AC, and there’s no way around that. Still, if you have credit card points to burn on a hotel and enjoy the hustle and bustle of a lively crowd, it might be worth the higher minimums at the tables.

*You’ll notice that the Borgata is suspiciously cheap for a casino that’s known to be one of the high-end properties in AC. If you are thinking that there’s a catch coming, you’re absolutely right. There is always ONE Blackjack table that runs at a $5 per hand minimum. During the week, you have a decent shot of getting to the table, but on the weekends, well…you better get there early. I’ve tried hanging around waiting for a spot a few times during a weekend stay, and each time I gave up. Once people park there during primetime, they’re going to be awhile, and at $5 a hand, they can likely afford the stay. This table does offer 3:2 Blackjack, however, which is a nice perk (You can find out why this helps here).

Note that I try to keep the payout tables listed here updated with the best information I can get, but I’m certainly not perfect. Head over to the Contact Us page if you stop by AC and notice anything different than what I have on display.
