Sahara Brings Back $1 Blackjack

The Sahara is bringing back $1 blackjack (coming via What Brian Thinks about Las Vegas). Finally, somebody on the strip gets it. A lot of people don't really like to play such low stakes. But as somebody who just enjoys the game and if you can double your $20 to $40, there is nothing better.

But there is even better news. The Sahara is also offering $1 beers. What do you think of that? This is truly great news. I don't mind the high rates as much as the high cost for having a beer. There is no way Las Vegas casinos should be charging more than $2, maybe $3 for a domestic draft. Have some respect for those who have already blown tons of money in your casino.

Bottle service and high-end clubs certainly have its place in Las Vegas. But so does cheap drinks. Man, this makes you long for the $0.75 Coors Light they used to have at the Westward Ho.

Love this move by the Sahara, though.

As you know, I love this move. One question, though - when you're talking about the beer, does that mean they don't let players drink for free? Or is that only for non-players at the bars and such?

How many decks? If it's single deck, that's pretty damn stellar. You can't even find a $1 single-decker in Reno anymore.

I think that it is great that they are bringing that kind of machine. It is great for people that they are introduce to that kind of game for the first time.
