    We appreciate your comments and value your feedback. Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, Live Casino and MGM National Harbor have 6:5 Blackjack tables, but all three also have 3:2 Blackjack tables on their floors. The payout structure is clearly marked on each table so that players can make informed decisions. The 6:5 tables are part of the menu of options that casino operators have available to them, and player interest will determine whether they choose to offer those tables on their floors. Casino managers know that customers speak with their dollars. If the options on the floor prove to be unpopular with players, we are confident the casinos will act accordingly.
