Playing BJ with lucky ladies side bet. Dealer is allowing players to stack lucky ladies wins on bet like house money. Should I play this every bet?

I don't know the math. But I'd think absolutely!

I don't get it. *sigh*

I guess I can really be dumb.

There's a correlation between winning the lucky ladies side bet and winning the main had. You have a 20 if you win the side bet, so increasing you main bet when it wins, with the winnings is a positive EV move on the main hand.

If you could bet 5 if you have 21, 19 or lower and 20-50 when you have a 20 up, you'd be in a very sweet spot.

OK, I get it now, not past-posting but increasing a bet with knowledge you are not supposed to have ...

In the side bet house money, if you win the side bet you get the option of keeping the win or putting it on top of your regular BJ bet. In lucky ladies you only win the side bet if you have a total of 20. The bet is supposed to be resolved right away, so if you get dealt JJ suited it pays 25 to 1 and you keep the money. In this case the dealer was asking if you want to stack it, like in house money. So when I got dealt JQ suited, I had 10 on BJ hand and 10 on side bet. My 10 side bet got paid 10 to 1 and 110 should have been pushed back to me, but instead the dealer asked if I wanted it stacked. I stacked it so now my BJ bet was $120 which won, so I got to pull back $240. So instead of me winning $130 on the hand I won $240.

The good thing with this side bet is you only win with a 20, so basically if you win that hand you are probably going to win the main bet. If this were in between it would be different because you are usually dealt a crappy hand to win the side bet and probably wouldn't want to stack it.

thanks

20 must win for player in BJ not 52, 53%, which would be sweet, but something enormous like 90%! [or no?]
