On a site that is pursuing hiring employees for casinos in Macao, I found this statement:
In Macau, blackjack is the second most popular table game, and it also enjoys huge popularity in casinos in foreign countries. In this game, customers can choose to split, double down, or surrender, and they can hit or stand according to their own preference. Nowadays, you can find quite a lot of blackjack tables in Macao's casinos, and the source of customers is very stable for this game.
Generally, wherever I have found blackjack to include late surrender, I have found the other rules and options to be quite liberal.
Penetration and heat, as always, independently varies.
Macau is all CSMs. Rules are:
1. Lisboa Casino chain
About -0.25% off-the-top... ES10 and 5 acrds early surrender on dealer non-A but D11, S17.
About -0.3%, better than Sands on RSA, S17, RSA, DOA, DAS
About -0.38%... ES10, no RSA, S17, DOA
About -0.45%... H17 with RSA allowed... Wynn offers the worst rules at Macau... unlike at LV.
There was only one licence for Macao casinos several years ago so there was no competition and the sole licence operator. Casino Lisboa, used CSMs... after been hit heavilly by counters including myself... it switched to all CSMs at about 1997. New licences were granted to Sands(Venetian) and Wynn who followed the 'tradition' and use all CSMs to maximize their profits... at the disadvantages of Chinese gamblers who nobody gives @#$%%^&1!!!
Now you know how Venetian's owner became one of the richest and how Wynn could afford damaging his Picasso...
I am afraid not only CSMs... the new comers, led by Wynn, may infest Macao with H17 evetually...: (
