I'm a tourist visiting Vegas and a local casino gave me a coupon for the first card at Black Jack to be an Ace. Bet limit is $10.00. I'm not sure of the specific house rules regarding soft 17, splits, doubles, and surrender, and I am no math wizard, but, my gut feeling is that it is a good bet no matter how bad the rules are for the player. Does anyone have a simulator or formula that would calc how often a player's hand where one card is an Ace wins vs 2 random cards for the dealer?
I once used a free ace for the max $100. They would still deal your card as normal but you had a card on the betting circle that indicated the Ace. Of course I received an Ace as my normal card and then lost the hand. I was sad.
yes, worth roughly 50% of what you bet. This is at WoO somewhere.
The link I attached in my post? lol
Can you link to that information? I always thought it was worth a bit more. What if they let you double down and split with it?Quote: Greasyjohn
It is worth 51 percent if it's a 3:2 game, less if it's 6:5.
I used 100's of $25 and $50 Aces at stations casino's one year.
Is that including splits and double downs?Quote: Ibeatyouraces
