I hope players make some errors.......a house edge in that range will not perform on the floor, IMHO. While I know all the players on the Forum are loving that low an HE, the casino has to make more money than a regular BJ table in order for them to justify the effort of training dealers, getting players educated, etc. to keep the game on floor. I think an HE closer to 1% is what is required in a BJ variant to make it viable.......see the final version of Free Bet at 1.03% HE as an example.

Remember that all HE's assume long term, perfect BS for any given game. Most carnival games, given the twist on the rules and players refusing to alter their strategies (in fact, most don't even know perfect BS for regular), the casino can easily achieve 3-5% HE on one that supposedly has similar or LOWER theoretical HE than blackjack. Spanish 21 with 6d and S17, for example, has a HE of low .4%'s but the way many players play it probably shoots it over 3%. Among even the players that are aware that the strategy is different, most only know to hit 12s and 13s against all upcards and nothing more.
