There is blackjack machine that I was playing for the purpose of earning comps. And the rules are pretty decent-

H17, DOA, DAS, LS, and 3:2. (But, while running money thru this machine I discovered it was paying 3:2 on ALL 21's!!!)

Is this glitch large enough to make the machine +EV? How much? How should I alter basic strategy?

wow.
Can't do the maths, but I feel it must be +ev
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

I wouldn't alter basic strategy too much - but I'd spend some time at that machine...

My guess is the changes are when the player has 12-14 and dealer has 12-14?

btw, side note, wouldn't it be great if the machine took 1.5 times your bet if you lose to 21 to "make up" for it? Just a stupid little thought...

If you double for 21, do you get 3:2 on your initial bet and your double down as well?

Where do I sign up for this?

What's the most you can bet at a time? Is it on one machine or a bank?

Mathematically, I believe it's in the neighborhood of, "I'm wearing Depends and can stay awake for 72 hours"

What kind of machine is it? multi-game with video poker and blackjack?

That is such an insane rule "variation" that the Wiz doesn't include it in his list.
congrats on finding that machine.
