Is it only me or is it a fact that Blackjack is rising in popularity? There have been claims that it is has the lowest house edge amongst all casino games. Could it be that this varies from one casino to the other?

Certainly Blackjack has a low house advantage with good rules (~.5%) but the games are deteriorating with the proliferation of 6:5 payoffs for blackjack which raises the house edge to about -1.8%, a game that is over 3 times as bad.

There are some video poker games with similar edges (-.5%)

Blackjack is the easiest game for me to play, which explains why I play it so much. And I'll take any house edge that's in the negative while I'm at it.
