First, if the players all bust then usually the dealer does not hit his hand to determine whether hhands of <17 would ahve gone bust. - do you lose the Buster BJ side-bet in this situation? Or does the dealer hits his cards anyway if he has less than a 17 in order to determine the outcome of the sidebet? If the dealer does not always play out his hand, the House Edge on the sidebet should be calculated assuming that the dealer does not play the hand when all players go bust -and thus the calculated side-bet should be a function of the number of players at the table.

I am very confused by this site:

The House edge is quoted to be different than what the Wizard just calculated for what appears to be the same assumptions on BJ rules. In this site's quoted simulation of 100M hands on a six-deck game with a card count of the A,2,3 cards, I don't understand if the dealer is assumed to play out his <17 hands when the player goes bust.

Differant pay table. I'm on my phone right now, but I did http://miplet.net/blackjack/busterblackjack.xlsb a while ago. Should be able to edit pay table and deck composition. I assume the dealer always plays out his hand.

Why no love for the state flag of Wyoming?

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I saw a new pay table for Buster Blackjack and added it to my page. This one pays premium wins if the player has a blackjack and the dealer busts with seven or more cards.

Hi Miplet,

Just having a quick look at your sheet. Call me naive but can you explain the titles H, D, S, C above the table on the left hand side. I can make a guess but just want to be sure. Thank you in advance!

They are the four suits - I guess it's to cater for other card games where the suits matter. In Spanish 21 a few decisions depend on whether your two cards are Spades or not.

So AGS added 6 units to the 6 Card Bust payout and an 800-1 & 2000-1 pay event and the HE only moved down 0.000116?

Buster Blackjack side bet is on every table at every casino in Northern CA: Thunder Valley, Graton, Cache Creek, etc. When I said every table, I meant it's on single deck, double deck, shoe, BJ Switch, ZIP blackjack, etc. (\$1 to \$50). The participation is over 80%, regularly.

Thanks. To be honest, I'm starting to run low on ideas.

WOO, may I suggest you analyze Zombie Blackjack.
