Question for the Ladies of the board...

I am thinking about trying blackjack on this trip. I've never played (just got a book on the ins and outs) and was wondering if there are a lot of women on this board that play. Also wondering if the dealers & other players treat you differently.

I don't gamble as it seems a huge waste of money to me, but have observed others playing, and haven't noticed players caring one way or another what sex you are.

I Love blackjack and always play it. I've never noticed them treating me different...well maybe a little nicer :-)

Blackjack is a very fun game and you have the best odds against the house. Stick to the "rules" people can get upset if you hit when you're not supposed to!

I don't play in Aruba. It's a 6 deck shoe that's always being shuffled...bad odds. Plus, a lot of "vacation gamblers" don't really know how to play. Nothing like hitting a 14 when the dealer has a 5 or 6 up. We usually play Carribean Stud, Let it Ride, 3 card poker....anything but blackjack.Hey, but luck is luck...who knows!!!

I love blackjack and sometimes play in Aruba, but def noticed that some people are just playing for fun and really do not know how to play, so I try to stay away! But the dealers never treated me differently...

Dont play blackjack but did play roulette.(IMO) They (dealers) really do not controll the game like they do here. People lay bets down whenever they want even after no bets down! It seems like the locals get the advantage, guess cause they are always there. When I play there
