Now, I’m guessing the whole reason you want to learn how to play Blackjack in Fallout New Vegas is because you want to
increase your caps. Well, now’s the time to go over that, and it’s a lot easier than you might think. Right before you
go up to a blackjack table, save your game. This is a very important step so please don’t skip it. After you’ve saved
your game, go up to the table and start playing. Bet the maximum amount that you can and if you win that hand, exit the
blackjack game and save your game again. If you lose the hand, then reload the game and try again. Yep, it’s that simple,
but it works. Now if only I could do this in real life.
Continue with this strategy until you have your desired amount or until you get kicked out of the casino. Yes, you actually get kicked out of the casino for winning too much money, it’s amazing how accurate video games are now-a-days. But unlike in real life, in the video game some of the casino managers will give you prizes before eventually kicking you out. But don’t worry, if you get kicked out, you have 5 other casinos you can go to. There are 6 casinos total in the game and each one has a different amount you can win before you’re kicked out. When you get banned you’re still allowed to cash out your chips and after being thrown out of 3 casinos, you’ll get an achievement. When it comes to gambling at Blackjack, your “Luck” levels matter. The higher your “Luck” level is the easier it will be for you to win. You’ll start noticing an improvement around level 6.
So now that you know how to play the game and how to win so much money, that you get kicked out of the casinos, what’s left?
Well, this next section is for advance players. People who have been playing blackjack for years and want to know a few more
details about the game that a beginner might not care so much about. One of these details is known as odds. The casinos are
different when it comes to blackjack payouts and when the dealer must draw. You can find these rules on the table layout.
The Atomic Wrangler has the worst odds, thanks to its 6 to 5 blackjack payout. The Gomorrah and Vikki & Vance Casino have
decent odds with a 3 to 2 payout, plus the dealer must hit soft 17. The casinos with the best odds are the Tops, Ultra-Luxe
and the Sierra Madre Casino, with a 3 to 2 blackjack payout plus the dealer must stand on all 17’s.
If you’re looking for something more specific, try this. All of the casinos in the Fallout game follow these rules. Each game is dealt with multiple decks which are shuffled after every hand. So much for using this game to practice your card counting skills. Players cannot purchase insurance, early surrender is not available, and surrender and blackjack payouts are rounded up. When you’re doubling down, you can double on any of your first two cards. If you’re splitting, you can only split once and you can only split identical cards, you can’t split a Queen and a King, for instance.
