That is all the single deck blackjack tables left in Las Vegas. Many Las Vegas casinos decided that there was no reason to offer 6:5 single deck games when players seem willing to play the game with six or eight decks. This adds to the house edge over these players that likely are not playing the game using basic strategy, increasing the win for the house.
