Question regarding gambling in Florida
  • For those of us who live in Florida, or visit, where can the best BJ playing be found? I've been on boats from Jacksonville all the way down the east coast to Miami. But never an indian reservation- don't even know if they have BJ tables. When I go on BJ binges, I go to LV, Reno, Biloxi, Tunica and even a couple times to Harrah's in New Orleans. I do live in FL and my favorite is a boat out of Port Canaveral, free buffet no matter play time, free parking, no port charges, OK BJ rules - I just want to make sure I'm not overlooking a better place on the west coast of FL or on a reservation. I think Walter may know an answer, it would be appreciated, thanks.
  • Jedi- My book shows no BJ, at any of the six indian casinos. There is no state-tribal compact and the state is trying to shut them down, they in turn made a formal appeal to the Secretary of the Interior for full-scale gambling. Matter is still in the courts.
  • Jedi: There are about 15 to 20 off-shore casino ships that sail out of Florida waters, usually on a twice-a-day basis, 7 days a week. Rules are comparable to Vegas Strip, but no single or double-deck games. Green chip Card counters are booted whenever they are spotted, and the interchange of personnel from boat to boat makes it difficult for a counter to remain undetected. No CSM machines, as yet, and no 6/5 Blackjack. Competition is fierce in some areas, such as South Florida. No blackjack at the Indian casinos.
    One of the new ships -- San Tropais, out of Port Everglades (Ft Lauderdale) -- relieved me of a substantial amount of cash last night, but the food was good! :(
  • Thanks for the replies, very good information. I think I saw csm's on the 5$ tables on the Sterling out of cocoa, but I'm not sure, as I just took a quick peek, once I realized I was on the wrong floor I left and didn't pay much attention. thanks again-

Howdy, Stranger!
