The TriLux, if I the name right, is a blackjack side bet found somewhere in Ohio. I'm not sure where. It is like the 21+3 but pays the dealer a bonus upon any player winning hand. For all the details, please see my new page on Tri Lux side bet. As always, I welcome questions, comments, and especially corrections.

Table column headers need work for at least four tables.

Thank you; you're right.

I don't get how the George payout works. Flat pay amount? Regardless of the bet amount?

Also, you're not clear about the George bet being for the dealer. I mean, the typical ploppy doesn't know what a "George" is.

Also, while I do tip dealers, and encourage others to do likewise, I want it to be my decision, and not built into some weird side bet.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Yes. It is a flat win regardless of the bet amount.

I will try to make that more clear.

Auto-gratuity has entered the world of casino gaming...

I'm a little surprised how well players have taken to the change. Contrast this with the utter disgust people show when the restaurant bill hits them with an auto-grat of 18%.
Views are my own...

Ok. So if the George payout is a constant, is the edge calculated based on a minimum bet?

Also, if it's constant, doesn't the edge go up if the bet is higher?

I think it goes down because a $10 side bet isn't as impacted by a $1 George pay vs. a $1 bet and the same $1 George pay...or do I have that wrong?

The house edge of the player's bet does not depend on the Lucky George bonus, because the player does not get that money. As you can see on my page, I treat them separately. I'm sure the casinos would be interested to know their cost, because they have to pay on both, but it is supposed to primarily be a site for players.

Maybe I should create a table showing how much the casino can expect to make according to the pay table and amount wagered.
