I'm in Deadwood. Al and I got here today and have been surveying everything out. We came across one of those blackjack consoles with 5 seats and a virtual dealer-Its called Royal Match 21 probably because it has the RM sidebet. So we were looking at the rules which are posted in front of every seat. The rules in front of the first 3 seats say it is a 6 deck game, blackjack pays 3 to 2, and it shuffles after every round. The rules in front of the 4th seat say it is a 6 deck game, blackjack pays 3 to 2, and there is 2/3's penetration. The rules in front of the 5th seat says "single deck rules, blackjack pays 6 to 5, shuffles after every round."

Al and I have been laughing at each other because neither of us can figure out whats going on with this game. How can they have these different rules like "shuffle after every round" and 2/3's penetration on the same console? Does anyone know?

Bizarre. You would have to somehow use a different shoe for certain seats and a shared deck for the dealer but that doesn't make sense either.

Each player plays from their own shoe, this includes the dealer.

Is this written on the glass? or is this in the rules screen?

The actions of one player can't directly affect the outcome of another players hand in gaming machines. Thus each player gets dealt cards from their own shoe. This would allow for different setups for each station.

This is probably the most humorous answer, but sadly, I have a feeling its untrue.

I feel like they are letting Seat 4 have a "go at it". I could be wrong though. Is lucky ladies even that profitable with 2/3rds penetration? Do they show when said 6 decks are reshuffled?

Good morning all. Sorry, Roger. That dog won' t hunt. I think it was April 18th the last time I had a drink. I'm all business when I'm on the road. Time enough for drinking when I get home.

So as to the question of counting VBJ, if it does what it says on the screen, you can. Does it tell you when it shuffles? Even if it doesn't you might still be able to discover the shuffle point but doing so is not easy, fast, or something I would recommend for the faint of heart. However, if you find your SP and the dealer's, theoretically there would be massive AP opportunities.

What kind of spread can you play on the main game and the side bet?
