Hi Wizard,

I was looking over your tables on the WoO site regarding the Copy Cat side bet at Santa Fe Station, and noticed that the "Double-Deck" and "Pay Table 7" tables have different payouts for "Event", "One suited copy and one non-suited". I think the top line is supposed to be "One suited copy and two non-suited"?

You're absolutely right. Thanks for the correction.

I made a rare visit to the Sunset Station yesterday and saw what I thought was a new blackjack side bet called Copy Cat. However, searching my site brought up mention of it from a placement at the Santa Fe Station in 2011. Unfortunately, my material on it vanished. It was probably placed when the site was going through one of its many updates.

So, I created a new page based on the Sunset Station rules. Please visit my new page on Copy Cat for all the details.

I don't suppose you know the pay tables there?

I saw another version of this in Florida on my recent travels... Though the idea was the same the pays were different... (never had anything to do with the dealers HC).

1) Paid if one of your cards matched dealer up card (in rank only).
2) Paid if one of your cards matched dealer up card (rank and suit).
3) Paid if both your cards match the dealer up card (in rank only).
4) Paid if one card matched rank and one matched with suit (so 2 matches total).
5) Paid if both your cards match the dealer up card (rank and suit).

I do not recall the payouts =(... I can say for fun I played it for $5 ONE time and got a 4-1 payoff rank match =P. If I had to guess I'd say for 1-5 above the payouts were:
1) 4-1
2) 10-1
3) 8-1
4) 14-1
5) 30-1

Again, I do not 100% recall the pay table so I'd be fairly certain that's not 100% correct but it's what I recall.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

If you played at a non-Seminole card room in Florida, all paytables are different, even on familiar games. That's because of player banking. Usually (there), you have to beat the dealer to win the sidebet, but it pays better than usual when you do. Ie, on uth, the Trips bet pays 10:1 on a FH instead of 8:1, but you won't get paid if the FH is on the board or the dealer has a higher hand. If the dealer beats you, you lose the trips bet along with the rest, even if you have a bonus hand.

I found this so annoying I don't play the card rooms. YMMV.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

The bet is coming soon to all Trump casinos and will be named "Pussy Grab."
