Hello , i couldn't find answer to my question elsewhere ill try here .
What is house edge on blackjack if rules are :
6 decks, dealer stands on soft 17 , player can split aces , player can double on any 2 cards . player can surrender on any 2 cards .so basically all good and reasonable rules

+ blackjack pays 2:1 when it is in same color
+if you have in some case 7-7-7 in same color it pays 5:1
+if you use 7 cards to get 21 pays 5:1
+if you have 6-7-8 in same color it pays 5:1

thanks in advance.

Did you check all the rule variations? I know a couple of those aren't on there... but maybe this will get you started: http://wizardofodds.com/games/blackjack/rule-variations/

Also, could you PM me where I might find this game? =P
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

7 card wins is worth 0.05%, if it has to be 21, it's a lot less.

Same color 777 getting 5 to 1 is maybe worth 0.01%

I would think same color 678 getting 5 to 1 would be close to 6 times the 777 bonus...so ~0.06%.

Great game assuming all other blackjacks are 3 to 2.
