Jun 12, 2006 4:36 AM

Tropicana’s popular Swim-Up Blackjack game, located in the main pool surrounded by five acres of lush tropical grounds, is now open to hotel guests for the summer season.

The aquatic card game is located in the indoor section of the main pool. The area includes two separate blackjack tables that can accommodate up to seven players each. Players can dive in to this lively card game from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. daily. Bets of $5-$25 a hand are accepted. For the convenience of the game players, towels are on-hand to keep the players’ hands and chips dry.

While trying their luck at blackjack, guests can enjoy exotic beverages from the Tropics Bar, just a splash away from the tables. Along with the traditional "tropical" drinks, like mai tais, daiquiris, piña coladas, and margaritas, guests can sip on the "Tropical Meltdown" or "Island Fantasy."

The 12,000 square foot, free-form main pool with an island in the middle is one of the most popular swimming pools on the Las Vegas Strip. The large heated pool and the adult only Lagoon pool are open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Labor Day weekend.
