Default Black jack rules

Can anybody tell me what rules Carnival uses for blackjack and how many decks?

Thanks

On their regular Blackjack tables, you can double on any two cards, split aces only once, other cards up to 4 times. Dealers stay on soft 17, and they use 8 decks.

There are also 8 spots for players at each table.

On Triumph:

2 regular BJ tables (min $10/$25)

1 Spanish 21 table (AKA Fun 21) ($5 min)..... all queens gone from deck (25% less 'tens' which means fewer bust hands for dealer / fewer BJ's for players / fewer 21's when doubling ...) allows DD on ANY cards and pays 21 automatically.

1 regular BJ ($10) with wheel of madness.. put out the extra $, if BJ spin the wheel and multiply your bet by the amount on the wheel.

They also had face up BJ ($5) but the odds are set against the player in the end.

Hope this helps.

But beware - Carnival has been heavily accuesed of hiring and encouraging 'sleight-of-hand" dealers...

As there is no gaming commission afloat - I choose to save my Blackjack playing for Vegas....

Allright everybody.....speak ENGLISH! Just kidding....but realizing I don't know the "language" makes me re-think my decision to try the BJ tables next cruise. Maybe I'll stick to slots....just pullin' that little handle....

I'd like Buzz to point out even 1 such accusation anywhere on the net, from any reliable sourse. These casinos have NO NEED to cheat, the odds are ALWAYS in their favor.
