This is done by lowering the payouts more than lowering the bets. Unlike the regular 3-2 payouts for blackjack tables, it’s not a 6-5 payout.

You are playing against a dealer, a dealer whom is trained to make you lose. There are other casinos such as the Bellagio, the Luxor, the Aria and many others.
