Correction: it is actually "Paddy Power Casino". The table is called "Blackjack Pro". It is a single-deck BJ by Boss Media that looks to be +EV. Anyone correct my mistake here and tell us the house edge?

Looks like a very very small player advantage. .15%, -.11% for no hole card, + a very small amount for the 10 card charlie rule = .04% player advantage.

After each hand played, a new single deck is shuffled and dealt.
Blackjack pays 3/2.
Dealer stands on soft 17.
Double down on initial 10 and 11.
Split pairs up to 3 times.
May split aces just once.
Late surrender available, even after splits.
Insurance pays 11/5.
Seven Card Charlie is automatic winner.


The Wizard's calculator gives this one about the same player advantage too, correct?

that one is a house advantage of about .078%, with the value of surrender after splitting and insurance at 11:5 still undetermined. Yes, I'd say it probably also has a very small player advantage after those rules are accounted for.

Boss Media's company was caught rigging Hi/Lo Gambler and a few other games that allegedly paid back 100%. This would make me seriously concerned about trying one of their alleged 100% payback games.

Both Boss/GTECH/Lottomatica and their GC Gibraltar have tried to act like nothing happened even in the face of insurmountable evidence.

Does anyone know the value of surrendering after splitting and insurance at 11:5? Seven card charlie is +0.01. I actually don't think the value of those 2 variation will equal 0.78%.....so maybe this one is still house advantage.
