The short answer is "yes." All games are either six decks (almost always in the high roller rooms) or eight decks. There are scattered 6:5 single-deck games (which are horrible games to play) in some casinos. The cuts are not too deep, usually 70 to 75 percent with some casinos offering about 80 percent. Card counters can get an edge at these games but that edge is small and needs endless hours of grinding away. And the answer is also "no." All the games allow doubling on the first two cards; doubling after splits; some allow resplits and doubling after resplits. These games are good for non-card counters --- and the worse the penetration the better for the non-counter. True, the casinos are hitting on soft 17 so that hurts everyone. AC used to have four-deck games which were good. That was long, long ago. Blackjack --- in fact, blackjack across the country --- is nowhere near as good in as many casinos as it used to be. That is the fact of casino-playing life. Note how many blackjack tables have now been turned into carnival games tables. Casino gambling is on the other side of the mountain now, going down, down, down in every way; it's upward climb is over. AC is the harbinger of that downward movement. In the end, Las Vegas will be around as will some casinos here and there. But the tidal wave is over.
