I'm getting a .11% house advanage in that game. If that's the worst game you've seen, what's the best?!?



8 deck, hit soft 17, 3 to 2, no peek, any double(not after split) no hit aces, split to 3 hands

Um...are you sure you don't have those definitions reversed?

Add a 50 cent ante every hand for blackjack. Minimum bet? $5

That's how they roll in Oklahoma.

The Blackjack in Finland has these rules: Six decks, Double hard 9-11 only, No Das, Split once, Dealer wins pushed 17-20. Minimum bet 2, maximum bet 20. I think that's around 10% house edge. Strangely I am actually ahead in this game :p

Does player automatically win once he gets 21? Does BJ pay 2: 1? As a member of this forum you are actually admitting you played this game? While sober? I cannot imagine you are ahead unless you got very lucky over a VERY short period of time.

The first legal hand of blackjack I ever played was in Finland 1986 under such rules, I'm embarrassed to say. As I recall the player lost ALL ties, but it has been a while.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Yes, the ante does take away any player advantage... HOWEVER, the casinos in Oklahoma have strangely player favorable rules (at least the ones I went to on a day trip out there).

2-decks, Dealer stands on 17, BJ is 3:2, unless in spades, then 2:1 (some places diamonds etc.), 6-card charlies pay 3:2, 7-7-7 pays 3:2, $100 if suited, RSA, no surrender though. These rules alone do not make up for the ante, but occasionally casinos run promotions where THEY pay the ante. Find those times, and play hard!
