Does anyone know how to play it? I'm trying to figure out the hook. Unfortunately the video is blurry. I can make out that there's a main bet on the left which a guy says is regular blackjack, and on the right is a king/ace bet. Below is a split bet.

A player puts equal bets on the Main and Ace/King wager spots. He's dealt a J/4. He puts another equal bet on the Split spot and splits his cards. He gets a J/K above the King/Ace spot and a 10/4 above the Main and he stands. The dealer busts. The split wager pushes and the player gets even money on the Main and Ace/King wagers. ¿Qué?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

This game has many features that are unfavorable to the player, presumably included to offset the inherent advantage in splitting your hands with Aces and Tens.

1. When split, the Ace or Ten must be placed on the right,
- where it is not played for an additional bet
- where you can only draw one card
-where, if you make an 12-16, the bet will only push when dealer goes bust

2. The card on the left, often a mini-stiff card like 2-6, must be played with an additional bet. If you stand on 12-16, the back bet will only push, not win, when dealer goes bust.

3. An original blackjack only pays 1:1, in order to give you incentive to split up your blackjack.

That's a lot of unfavorable rules.
