If you are playing only basic strategy and not counting cards, you want to look for the games with the best rules [S17, DAS, RSA and/or LS. You also want to play against the least number of decks. Double deck is better than 6 deck shoes and single is better than double.
What you're looking for is the least house advantage number you can find. Typically a Double deck game with Stand on Soft 17 and Double After Splitting gives a house edge of only .19 for example.
My advice is to buy a single copy of Wong's Current Blackjack News [CBJN]for $10. It has all games in all casinos in the US and beyond. It lists the rules, number of decks, house advantage, table minimums and maximums, number of total tables, and penetration levels. You can order it from this site or BJ21.com.
