Many people usually imagine house cheating in Blackjack - including me. The usual complain is that there may be (face) cards missing from the deck. But they don't usually bother with these, they make enough money with the house edge.All of the above casinos offer blackjack. I have no experience in them, but have heard complaints of perceived cheating by the house.
Why the hell couldn't you have told me about that guy two years ago? He cleaned me out of $300 before I knew what hit me.I have played a lot of poker in the area, but not in the last year, so if things have changed it has been in that time period. The poker table at the Sosua Bay casino increased the buy in beyond my comfort level, to about $250. I prefer about a $100 buy in. I played once at Playa Chiquita two years ago in their Friday night tournament(and won.) The buy in was about $60, with re-buys the first hour or so. There were 30-40 entrants.
Most of my poker playing has been in the Playa Dorada area, one inside the gate to the left, and the other on the main road by the Iberostar resort. Both have had good cash games and a full table. They have offered tournaments at times in the past.
The most important thing to be aware of is the scam game of Dominican Roulette, or whatever they call it. They are smooth operators and will suck you dry of your bank account. It is usually an elevated area near the entrance, with an attractive gal and slick English speaking guy running it. They pull numbered balls out of a hopper, and you are always 1 point away from a gajillion dollar payout. The cost to bet doubles every time. Don't get suckered into it.
