Paris Las Vegas sits under the Eiffel Tower replica at the center of the Las Vegas Strip. It opened on September 1, 1999. Paris Las Vegas has 2,916 hotel rooms.
Paris Las Vegas was developed by Bally Entertainment. Bally’s is connected to the property through a corridor. The two properties also share a parking deck and Las Vegas Monorail Station.
Paris Las Vegas was later acquired by Park Place, which became Caesars Entertainment. It was acquired through a merger with Harrah’s Entertainment before the company reverted back to its previous name of Caesars.
Paris Las Vegas Tables and Games
There are 31 blackjack tables at Paris Las Vegas. Overall, the blackjack games are great, especially for being in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. There are six tables in a party pit that have 6-5 shoe games. These allow double down before and after splitting, as well as surrender. The dealer hits soft 17. The house edge is 1.91%. The bet limits are $10 to $1,000.
If you move to the blackjack tables on the main floor, you will find 17 tables with the above rules. The difference is that blackjack pays 3-2. The house edge for this game goes down to 0.6%.
There are six double deck blackjack games. Two are in the main pit and four others are at the far end of the Asian games pit. The bet range is $25 to $2,000. Players can double down before the split but not after. The dealer hits soft 17. Blackjack pays 3-2. The house edge is 0.55%.
There are six six-deck blackjack tables in the high limit salon. Players may double down on any two cards and after splitting. Surrender is permitted and blackjack pays 3-2. The dealer stands on all 17’s. The house edge is 0.35%. The bet limits are $100 to $10,000.
There is Blackjack Switch available at Paris Las Vegas. The game allows players to move cards between hands. To offset this, the house pushes if the dealer draws 22 against a live hand. Blackjack Switch limits are $15 to $2,000. Blackjack Switch is dealt from a continuous shuffle machine at Paris Las Vegas.
Total Rewards for Frequent Blackjack Players
Total Rewards is the players club used by all Caesars Entertainment casinos. The best perk about this program is that comps may be earned at one Caesars property and redeemed at another. Action in one market can generate a good offer from another. Unfortunately, comps from blackjack are rare, especially for players giving action under $25. It is still a good idea to get rated on play to help generate future offers and maybe a free meal or hotel room. Playing four hours of green chip action should get a player on the Total Rewards radar.
Paris Las Vegas has some of the best low limit blackjack in Las Vegas. You will always get a 3-2 game as long as you avoid the party pit. Paris Las Vegas even allows surrender in its shoe games. Unlike some of the middle tier Las Vegas Strip properties, Paris Las Vegas offers stand on all 17 games in the high limit salon. We like the theme of the casino and its different dining options, which are a nice change of pace blackjack players will not find anywhere else.
The Inside View
Paris Las Vegas is perfect for low rollers. You will find $10 blackjack during off peak hours and $15 on weekends at the 3-2 tables. Surrender is a nice added bonus for those that use the perk correctly. Like all Caesars casinos, we’re disappointed that players cannot double down after splitting on the double deck games. The $100 high limit games stand on all 17’s.
We do have one big blackjack tip for $25 players. Walk past the $25 double deck games at Paris Las Vegas and go through the corridor to Bally’s. You will find two $25 six-deck shoes in the high limit area there. The rules are the same as the $100 games at Paris. Both take the Total Rewards card because Paris Las Vegas and Bally’s are owned by Caesars Entertainment. You will find the three minute walk well worth it to cut the house edge in half at the $25 level.
If the blackjack action gets old, take a break by going up in the Eiffel Tower. This gives a great view of the Bellagio fountain, as well as the entire Las Vegas skyline.
