Several casinos in my area have recently instituted a side bet: Super 4 Progressive Blackjack. There is a small payoff when the dealer shows an Ace. However, significant amounts can be gleaned when the dealer has a BJ and the player and the dealer cards show various poker hands.

It seems to me that this side bet can be beaten through card counting with or without a side count of Aces. Has anyone done an analysis showing how this bet can be beaten by card counting.

Greetings!

I just wanted to make it known I have moved this thread to, "Blackjack," from the parent Topic, "Info," and Sub-Forum, "Rules."

I apologize for not doing that sooner, I generally just go through, "Recent Posts," when I read threads, so the parent topic doesn't always jump out at me. Thus, even though I had already read the thread, I had not noticed it was in the wrong parent topic. Could be why it had no replies!

This progressive game has been discussed extensively

I think it's the same game. It's at The D, Las Vegas.
