LAUGHLIN BLACKJACK REPORT
by KC Brooks
I have been addicted to blackjack ever since reading Revereís "Playing Blackjack as a Business" when I was 15. The art of blackjack is a lifetime endeavor.

There is one very slow craps table that was cut in half, and operated by one stickman (an excellent table to work on my dice game). The food at the Pioneer was good, the room was clean, and the employees very pleasant.
I purchased an all-day pass on the river taxi for $15, and itís definitely worth the price. You can ride it to all the casinos except for the Tropicana, which is across the street from the Pioneer (and basically in the middle of the town).
The blackjack rules in the Laughlin casinos are...
