National Blackjack Day is March 2nd

March 2nd – 3:2 – was chosen for a very specific reason.  As I, and many other players and industry watchers smarter than me, have been highlighting in recent years more and more casinos are moving away from 3:2 payouts for blackjack and moving to 6:5.  This trend is taking money out of players hands, tilting the odds even further to the house, and eroding the game from it’s once dominant position to just another table on casino floors.

Obviously this isn’t nearly as critical as cancer research, memorializing national heroes, or acknowledging some of the more critical causes that have their own dedicated days.  That being said, if no one stands up and let’s the casino operators know that players are paying attention then we would expect this trend to continue unchecked until the 6:5 payout becomes the norm rather than the exception.

This simple gesture is a way to join the cause and start making a case to the casino companies that 3:2 blackjack is the standard we expect.

Join the movement and celebrate National Blackjack Day on March 2nd #BlackjackDay by playing 3:2 blackjack, sharing your love of the game, and calling on the casino companies to keep 3:2 blackjack tables!

    Just saw this for the first time! I’ve added National Blackjack Day to the Blackjack Review Network’s History of Blackjack and Card Counting database. So…. every year on March 2, there will be an announcement on our home page. https://www.blackjackreview.com/wp/historical-events/

    Hmmmm, what about June 5? Maybe call it National Blackjack Losers Day?
