There is a new version of Bonus Spin Blackjack. This one has a $1 required side bet and pays $5, $10, $20, $30, $40, $50, $60, $75, $100, $250, $500 and $5,000 on the wheel if a player is dealt a blackjack. I'm sure the wheel not random because that would be like a 2,400% RTP.
Unlike other versions, the game does not push if the player is dealt an ace. Presumably, this adds 15% to the house edge, unless the wheel was adjusted to account for it.
Wizard once said this side bet had an 8% house edge. That game displayed multipliers instead of flat amounts like this one does. Adding the 15% for not pushing on an ace puts the house edge around 23%, though that's hardly scientific because I suspect it can be adjusted.
Does anyone know for sure how bad this side bet is? It's a component of what must be the worst blackjack game in Las Vegas. I'm just trying to figure out how bad it is. I estimate the game to have a house edge of about 4.4% when combining minimum flat bet plus bonus.
