If Bellagio has a little shop that sells basics (sunscreen, snacks, little suvoniers etc.) they should also have the cards. I'm sure you could find one at a shop in the airport as well.

yeah, print something of the internet that is recommended. I've heard that the basic strategy cards at the casino might not be 100% perfect play

I agree with the other posts - print one before you go. An added benefit is that you don't have to squint so hard to see it!

I don't have an exact answer, but hotel/casino gift shops should have them, and some places have WIN card sets that include them as well (Excalibur comes to mind, but there are probably others). My daddy plays tournament BJ and has a card he has used for-EVER... I can't imagine they have changed that much....

At Bellagio, walk from the hotel lobby (check-in counters), past the Conservatory, past the chocolate place, and at the end of that hallway on your left, there is a small gift store. They sell the basic strategy cards there. I had to replace a very old and batterred one recently and that is where I got the new one.

The ones they sell in the gift stores are plastic. The ones you print out from the Net areobviously paper. I've been carrying a BJ card in my wallet for about 22 years, and I prefer the plastic cards that hold up better!

@Vegas041610: I have not noticed any incorrect information on it.

They won't be 100% correct because there are a number of rule variations that can change basic strategy slightly. Its impossible to fit all the variations onto one card. But the card from the gift shop will provide a reasonable strategy for the shoe games common in Vegas. Most do cover the surrender variations, which some casinos do allow.

For a better chart, see the Wizards site:

http://wizardofodds.com/games/blackjack/

Scroll about halfway down for links to cards for common variations and a strategy card generator where you can put in very specific rules. Unless you're taking a computer and printer, though, that doesn't really help.

I like the Wizard's "simple strategy," printable from the website. Much easier to remember after a few cocktails, and at the stakes I play it doesn't impact my overall result all that much.
