    Well, it's the fastest way to grind CC besides hitting a Jackpot, which is far more unlikely than Black Nyacks and Five Cards. I do agree that Black Nyack isn't all that fun if you're flying solo; the "fun" part is playing it with friends (as many have stated).

    I enjoy Black Nyack to test the rules for success that I figured out for it.
    But otherwise it's as Stormwalker said.

    I played some real Blackjack in another game recently, and it felt annoying because the dealer almost always gets 18-21, making it super difficult to not lose.
    But then, perhaps I just haven't figured out how to play real Blackjack efficiently yet.

    I've won a little money playing blackjack in Vegas; it's fun if you know the strategy, partly because the house edge is very small usually, so you can entertain yourself playing for a long time and even if you lose you're not likely to lose big (unless you are betting too much for your bankroll; you don't want to be broken by a losing streak because they happen.).

    The strategy revolves around a couple of concepts:

    1). The objective is not to get as close to 21 as possible. The objective is to beat the dealer. Thus:
    a). If the dealer busts, and you don't, it doesn't matter what you have, you win.
    b). If the dealer doesn't bust, you need more than he has.

    **** NOTE: This is why Black Nyack drives me nuts. Nyau has no rules about when he can hit and when he can't. He acts like a player, not like a dealer. An exceptionally strange player, at that.

    2). Split, double down, and surrender are the tools the player has to mitigate the inherent house edge. Using them properly is the key to making money.

    Beyond that, it's just a matter of memorizing all the possible scenarios and knowing what to do in each (which in a few cases is contingent on the table rules). There are a number of websites out there with tables of the scenarios. It's not as hard as it sounds, because a lot of the scenarios can be grouped up with general rules (just be sure you know the exceptions to those rules).

    Oh, and there are some table rules out there that inflate the house edge dramatically, so knowing how to spot those (For example, blackjack payout less than 3:2) so you can avoid them is important.

    Thanks. Yeah, I haven't fully figured out how Split works yet. Too lazy to look it up.

    I love Black NYack. I can never get the lilipa roulette thing down though. I go to the Casino all the time just to have fun. I wish I had more friends to come with though.
