Is there sports betting in aruba
Blackjack, except for a few exceptions, all blackjack rules seem to be six decks, blackjack pays 3-2, dealer hits soft 17, double any two cards, double after split allowed, surrender not allowed and re-splitting aces is not allowed.Beware that 6-5 blackjack has unfortunately invaded Aruba.I also saw a double-deck game at the Orchid casino at the RIU.I would roughly estimate that 60 of the tables used an automatic shuffler, 30 a hand shuffle, and 10 a continuous shuffler.
Penetration on the first two types was about 2/3.Following is the basic strategy under the Aruba rules: Poker, three casinos offer live poker in Aruba: the Orchid Casino in the Rui, the Excelsior Casino at the Holiday Inn and the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort Casino.I can only comment on the rake at the Rui, which is 5 up to 10 for Texas Hold' Em and up to 12 for Omaha.
Compared to Vegas, this rake is inordinately high.I spoke with a friend who plays a lot of poker in Aruba.He says most games are no-limit hold 'em and pot-limit Omaha.He says that many players speak Spanish openly at the table, despite an English only rule.The dealers, he complained, don't enforce the rule.Nevertheless, he says the locals are awful players, which American pros prey.
Players from Venezuela were the second best source of soft players, but there are fewer of them around due to the economy of that country tanking.Machines, the video poker and video keno in Aruba are simply awful.The pay tables are about as bad as they get, often the same as used at the Las Vegas airport, which is the worst place to play video poker in Vegas.
