Australia: Blackjack payout reduced

2 November 2009

VICTORIA, Australia -- New changes to blackjack payouts at Crown Casino are disadvantaging small players according to a report in the Herald-Sun newspaper.

Experts have suggested that the casino will gain millions of dollars from the new rules, which include reduced payout odds on blackjack tables, an extra house humber added to roulette machines and a requirement that dealers hit on soft 17.
