1. Blackjack pays 3/2
2. Surrender available
3. Dealer stays on soft 17

There are a couple others. If any of those rules go against the player, it adds quite a bit to the house advantage. The worst is blackjack paying 6/5, that adds like 3% to the house advantage by itself.
agreed...

and I would add playing with a single deck.....of course..and being able to double down on splits

but yes, as you mentioned , these things simply HAVE to be there or why bother

not to mention the stack you need to have......(BIG)

not to mention if they get a whiff that youre not handing them money left and right, theyll ask you to leave...


all in all I do not recommend the life...some people love it though
