Virtual Blackjack?

I am going out to Vegas in three weeks, and was wondering if most casinos offer virtual blackjack? I know some people hate it, but I like to start off on it and then move to the real tables. And I usually win a quick $50!

I can't recall exactly which casinos, but I did see many of these as I hopped around both in May and in July.

Most of the ones I was in a couple weeks ago had them. Saw them in the IP, Flamingo and PH.

You can find them. I've seen them all over. Caesars sticks out in my mind. But man, so creepy. The "dealers" freak me out for some reason. LoL

The dealers often have more personality than those at the tables.

Just played Virtual BJ in Niagara Falls. What a waste of time. The odds seem more like a slot than real BJ. Just my .02

I don't know if different games have different settings, but I've made a little bit of money on them. Like I originally said, I use it as a quick warm up for the real tables, and I usually win a quick $50 or so.

These machines can be a good value if you know what to look for. I'll only play them if they have decent rules (3:2 on BJ, etc.). The value comes from playing on machines that are programmed to reward points/free play like a slot machine. They are very hard to find (most casinos caught on to this "trick" and will be stingy with points), but Las Vegas Club downtown has one that if you play correctly and take advantage of the comps/credits, it's actually a "positive expectation" game.
