I have a question regarding the buster bet offered as a side bet and the advantage of banking these wagers. The buster bet chart was as follows: 3 card busts paid 2:1, 4 card busts paid 2:1, 5 card busts paid 4:1, 6 card busts paid 16:1, 7 card bust paid 50:1, and 8 card bust paid 200:1. I changed the payouts to 3 card bust 2:1, 4 card bust paying 3:1, 5 card bust paying 5:1, 6 card bust paying 16:1, 7 card bust paying 75:1, and 8 card bust paying 250:1.
Before the change those who banked the game had roughly a 6% advantage, now with the changes they are claiming that the odds have turned against them, making it a 6% advantage for the player, would these changes equate to a disadvantage for the banker and how can i do the math myself?
I'm having trouble finding your analysis of the Buster Blackjack side bet. I can find your charts on probability of a bust depending on the dealer's up card but what I'm looking for is the probability on an 8 deck shoe for different amount of cards leading to a bust.
