March 2nd is a great day! 3:2 is the perfect day to celebrate and play blackjack at your favorite casino.
This year has seen a lot of change in the gaming industry with big name disgraces, major new casino openings, more regional options, casino closings, eSports booming, skill games floundering, and Vegas booming yet showing signs of consumer pushback based on perceived value.
All of these things and more are going on around the industry and yet really all we want to do is enjoy our favorite casino game.
This day was chosen to raise awareness of the fact that casinos are moving the odds as far away from the players’ favor as possible and we want to continue to implore owners to make the games we love a good value for everyone. It is also meant to be a celebration of the game itself. We want to encourage as many people to play blackjack as possible while learning the rules and odds to make it more enjoyable for everyone.
We applaud the players and casinos who are making efforts to keep everyone engaged in the conversation around favorable odds and growing the interest in the game. We’ve seen casinos like the D and The Cromwell in Vegas continue 3:2 blackjack payouts while many of their rivals push 6:5 payouts and other less favorable rules. Regional casinos continue to play with mainly favorable rules, however pressure from corporate and political forces to earn every additional dollar still create risk for future changes.
So what do we do?
It pretty simple really. On March 2nd, grab your friends, maybe a cold beverage, and head out to the casino for a session of 3 to 2 blackjack on Friday, March 2nd to celebrate.
Good luck and have fun!
