There is a new blackjack game at Binion's, called burn blackjack

It is played out of an eight deck shoe, automatic, not continuous shuffler. For what it's worth, it seemed to be two decks cut.

The rules are: If the dealer has a 10 up, he first checks for blackjack. If he has a suited blackjack with a 10 up, the blackjack is discarded and the rules are as below...... this seems to negate 1/8 of the dealers blackjacks.

If the dealer has a 10 up and does not have blackjack, the dealer then checks again, and if he has a hard 20, he discards those two cards, and then "all subsequent dealer hand are discarded until the dealer ends up with two cards that up not both 10 value cards or a blackjack- the hand is then played out as in the regular game"

additionally, player may elect to double on any number of cards.

A dealer total of 22 will push or remaining hands except blackjack. [Mike blackjack switch, or power blackjack]

Blackjack pays 1 1/2 to 1, you can double on any number of cards, even after splitting. One card on split aces.. I don't think you can re split aces.

Can somebody run the numbers on this game, and also the basic strategy, house advantage etc.

If this game proves to be a good new game getting a lot of action, that's automatically done via the Wizardofodds.com.

I don't think somebody would spend the time and write up a math report for you on your request or demand for it, if your are not the Nevada Gaming Commission who needs it, even to post it at this site for our enjoyment and interest. Gaming mathematicians generally charge a worthy fee for their efforts to produce or to see their reports, and they are generally not released until a game is very thoroughly established after a field trial, and Mike Shackleford deems it worthy to be released on his gaming math site. We assume that such a report was done for the Nevada Gaming commission - for the game to be approved for play in a Nevada Casino, such as Binions.

Maybe you can contact the distributor of this game, and see if they send you a free copy of this math report.

If Geoff wants to post math online before his distributor, okay.

I'm distributing my games in Nevada and I haven't got a problem divulging the house edge which is:-

0.80% (no resplit Aces) and 0.73% (resplit Aces allowed)

Both with 8 decks, player doubles on any number of cards, DOA, DAS

Seems fair - a little more fun than regular BJ, a little more expensive than regular BJ.

You can expect a page on that game on my Odds site later this month.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
