Australian Gamblers Unhappy With Crown Blackjack Rule Change
Crown must really be feeling the effects of the global recession. Why else would the company announce that they are changing the odds on their blackjack tables from 6-4 to 6-5 for hitting blackjack? That is a question that gamblers would like answered.
"There is no reason other than greed that Crown is making this change," said Michael Butler, "You notice they didn't change the odds at the high roller tables, which basically means that they are saying 'screw you' to all casual gamblers."
Crown is making the change at all $5 and $10 blackjack tables. It is a move that is expected to bring millions of dollars in for the company, while at the same time handcuffing gamblers. The blackjack odds change is just the latest move made by Crown to improve their odds.
Last year Crown made a change to their roulette table that crippled gamblers. The casino added extra an extra house number that has significantly increased their odds. Another change being made to the blackjack games is that dealers will now hit a soft seventeen instead of standing.
"None of these measures apply in the VIP high-roller rooms because they would never get away with it," said Ron Parsons, owner of the CasinoBusters.com teaching school, as reported in the Herald Sun, "The Asian high-rollers would head home in their droves. It's all designed to rip off the inexperienced player."
The Victorian Commission for Gambling Regulation has approved the rule change, but that is of little consequence to those who feel they are being cheated. Crown has already been accused of receiving preferential treatment from the Brumbry Government.
