I remember a decade ago where the Rio in Vegas had a SD game where blackjack paid even money. People played that too.

It's single deck, man! ...lol
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Wow. What a find! The powers that be believe in a portion of the customer-base known as "riff raff" and probably why the limits are so low and affordable to play 😏.

What's worse is that on weekends it was $100
Minimum and people were playing.
I was watching the table one night and one of the players was criticizing another player for the way he was playing.
How ironic .

I play at Hollywood. The two bets, I call Little Trilux and Big Trilux, small one pays 9 to 1 for Straight, Flush, 3OAK, Straight Flush, 3OAK suited. You MUST play the Little to bet on the Big. Big max is $10, Little max is $100. Minimum on each is $1 and the Big must equal or be higher than the Little. You do not have to play the Big. The Big pays 3OAK (90-1), Straight Flush (180-1) and 3OAK Suited (270-1). I didn't play BJ before Trilux and only play it for the Trilux. I've financed all of my playing since December on Trilux wins and I only bet $5 on the Big and usually $10 on the Little. It's on every BJ table with both continuous shuffle and shoes. I never play the shoe tables.

How many decks at these continuous shuffle and shoe tables?

My local casino just made all their $5 tables the exact rules of free bet blackjack but without the free bet. I laughed really hard when I saw this and the players don't even care.



Any chance that someone can PM the names of these casinos using 'Push 22' on a regular game? I'd like to check into it if possible.

My local casino is Casinos of Winnipeg and they have it on their $5 tables. Why do you want to know this? It’s not the side bet just a terrible rule lol.

Switch patented PUSH 22. I think that's why.

In that case Regent Casino and Mcphillips Casino both in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. You might want to look into Shark Club in Winnipeg too. Same owners but I haven’t been there in a long time.

I had a nice dinner with Charles Mousseau (hope he doesn't mind the name drop) yesterday. He drew my attention to a bar-top game at Binion's with some awful rules. Afterward, we went over and I can confirm the rules were:

  • Single deck
  • Dealer stands on soft 17
  • All wins, including blackjack pay even money (or 2 for 1)
  • Player may never double or split
  • Player and dealer must automatically stop on six cards.


My blackjack programs don't even support such awful rules so I asked expert Norm Wattenberger for the bottom line. He said the house edge was 4.30%. Benny Binion must be rolling over in his grave. I wish I could put copper wire and magnets in it to generate electricity.

Still, in all fairness, it isn't as bad as Blackjack Plus, with a house edge of 6.36%.

I'd like to thank Norm for his help on this. Please check out his blackjack software Casino Verite.
