Vegas Downtown Blackjack

This Microgmaing blackjack game has the rules you would find in downtown Las Vegas for a 2 deck game. You will notice that the Vegas Strip Blackjack game deals 4 decks, and the downtown game has only 2, yet the 4 deck game is slightly better for the player. This is because of the rule here that the dealer must hit soft 17. The house edge on this game is .4%. Only 40 cents on a $100 bet still makes this a great game to play. Many Microgaming casinos have added multi-hand Vegas downtown blackjack where you can play up to 5 spots at a time. The rules and strategy are the same.
