Hello, I have a question.
Was in Las Vegas last month and the Ono Casino offered $ 1 blackjack, but the blackjack was paid out only 1: 1 with a minimum bet of $ 1-4 (even money)

my question to the math experts, how much does the bank advantage increase if black jack is only paid even monex?
Unfortunately, the calculator does not give out numbers when BJ is paid 1: 1.



thanks in advance for the help ;-)

There is no Ono Casino in Las Vegas. I'm assuming you're talking about the dump formerly known as Hooters.

Figure out the frequency of being dealt a BJ. Figure out the frequency of the dealer getting a BJ. The times you have one and the dealer doesn't, you lose a half bet when BJ pays 1:1 instead of 3:2. Do the work and get back to us.

BJ paying 1 to 1 or "even money" costs the player roughly 2.27%,

See link here >>> https://wizardofodds.com/games/blackjack/rule-variations/ <<< for the above figure

you can go here >>> http://www.bjstrat.net/cgi-bin/cdca.cgi <<< if you want to work out the overall house edge of the game you are playing.

In general avoid any game playing 6/5 or even worse. However if you're playing for fun and can accept the House Edge then it would be better to play this $1 game than a $5 regular BJ. As has been pointed out there are pages that answer your question about the exact House Edge (but it depends on the exact rules being used).

I致e said this before:

If you池e at an even money $1 game, double down if you get blackjack. Similarly, split tens.

Sure, the math says otherwise, but the entertainment derived from the reaction is well worth one dollar. 🤪
