Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I am new to this forum. At my local casino there is a side bet you can make that has a payoff schedule as follows: if the dealer has 2 consecutive red card cards, you are paid 1:1. If he has 3 consecutive red cards, you are paid 5:1. four red cards is 10:1. five red is 50:1. six red is 100:1 and seven red is 200:1. The casino uses a 5 deck CSM and hits on soft 17. What would the house advantage be for such a side bet? even when all players bust the dealer will still deal out his hand until 17-21 or busting because this bet exists. Also if the dealers first 2 cards are red, the next one is black, then the next 4 are red you only get paid on the first 2 that are red. Conversely, if his first card is black and the next 6 are red, you dont get anything. its starts the count at his first two cards. Hopefully this explanation is as clear as possible. I tried figuring it out on my own with no luck, and even called the maker who couldn't tell me because of confidentiality purposes. google doesnt even know! Any math magicians out there who know this would be greatly appreciated! ALL HAIL THE WIZARD!!

You're welcome. May I ask where this bet may be found? I'd like to add it to my blackjack appendix 8. Now, go bring me the witch's broom.

Ozzy -
Assuming all players busted, does he still continue to play his hand if he has any black cards?


APs -
Out of curiosity, does seeing extra cards for free help or hurt card counters? Would your answer change if it was a shoe game rather than a CSM?
