SLS Las Vegas Discusses Its Games During Facebook Discussion

slslogoSLS Las Vegas will open on the former site of Sahara on August 23, 2014. The Sahara ceased operations on May 15, 2011 due to the property no longer being economically feasible.

SLS Las Vegas held a Facebook question and answer session. 4Flush inquired about the gambling that will be spread.

Craps will be offered with 3-4-5 times odds and a $5 minimum bet. There will be video poker that returns 99% and higher. SLS considers what they will offer in the slots and video poker section of the casino floor to be comparable to locals casinos.

We specifically asked about blackjack rules. We were told that there will be single, double and six-deck blackjack. All games will hit a soft 17 and double down on any two cards will be allowed.

Double down after splitting will not be allowed in any game. This is unusual. The only major casinos in Las Vegas that do not allow double down after splitting in shoe blackjack games are California, Main Street Station, and Fremont. Not allowing double down after splitting is more common in double deck games.

The minimum bet is expected to be $5 or $10, depending on the time of day. Below are the specific rules for the three blackjack games that will be spread at SLS Las Vegas.

Single Deck Blackjack

  • 6-5 on natural blackjack
  • Dealer hits soft 17
  • Double any two cards

Double Deck Blackjack

  • 3-2 on natural blackjack
  • Dealer hits soft 17
  • Double down any first two cards

Six-deck Blackjack

  • 3-2 on natural blackjack
  • Dealer hits soft 17
  • Surrender
  • Resplit aces
  • Double down on any first two cards
