Ameristar Casino Blackjack

The Ameristar Kansas City has a mix of six deck, two deck and one deck blackjack tables. The single deck games pay 6-5 and dealers hit on soft 17, both of which are not good for the player.

However, players may double down after splitting pairs and may resplit aces, both of which reduce the house edge.
