My local casino now has a 4 deck jackpot game. Its spread is actually greategr than the 6 deck games, and is usually empty. However, its penetration is usually around 2 and 1/2 decks deep, whereas theh 6 deck games have a constant penetration of 5 decks (or slighly more).
So which game should i play? How do i weigh having a table to myself against a weaker penetration? If having the table to myself is reason enough to play, should i leave as soon as someone else sits down?
Also, the 4 deck game has an automatic shuffler, which means many more hands per hour, how would this weigh into the equation?
And finally, IF i was getting the same penetration from both games, and both tables are empty, which should i sit at? I would think the more hands per hour at the 4 deck game should sway me to start there, however if i get a bad count i can always move.
