Home to the biggest gambling centre in the world, Macau has seen explosive growth and the opening of many famous casino brands in the last few years, and so it makes sense that the blackjack tables on offer are some of the best around and there are many competitors for your attention and patronage.
- Best Rules: Casino Lisboa – Macau's largest casino which, although part of the SJM group, has different and more considerate rules than their other properties inducing a very low house edge of only 0.02%, by far the best on offer in the city.
- Lowest table limits: Floating Palace – offers a very relaxed atmosphere and comparably low table limits at selected tables, so keep your eyes open for this one.
- Best High Roller Casinos: Tough competition exists between "out of town" casinos and when it comes to high rollers The Wynn and The Sands are fierce contenders with the latter leaning towards first place. Amongst local and loyal Chinese visitors however, Casino Lisboa takes top spots but is more of a "no frills, hard core" establishment that uses VIP treatment like helicopter rides to get whales to the casino rather than the opulent atmosphere of The Wynn and Sands which just might eventually keep them there instead.
- Overall Best Places to Play: For the complete package of luxury entertainment as well as considerate rules and a variety of table limits to suit every pocket – The Wynn Macau.
