You're RM bet is independent from your BJ bet. So you can bet $5 and $25 for RM.

I've never seen a casino where your bet on the side bet can exceed your bet on the base hand. It's definitely countable, but you also have a 3.8% house edge to overcome. And only 2 or 3 hands per deck in a single deck game.



Mohegan Sun for one. Bet $5 on your blackjack hand and feel free to bet from $1-$200 on Match the Dealer or the In Between Bet.

Where I work the RM isn't the most popular side bet, but I've seen many players (at all our tables that offer side bets) that seem to be playing the minimum on the bj hand just so they can play the side bet. They'll miss hitting the side bet, but get a blackjack and be bummed out about it.

I've seen quite frequently, a "Crown Treasure" addition to the Royal Match...If you get a Royal Match & The dealer does too, it pays 1000:1 (or maybe it's just $1000)
The max bet I've seen on the RM is $25...

Alright, first you have to verify that the game you're going to play is single deck and the payouts are 3-1 for an easy match and 10-1 for a royal match. This is very important. Next you want to find a relatively full table (5-7 players). Make sure that the dealer deals at least 2 rounds.

In the first round of play you are looking for a suit that has come out excessively off the top, and count until you see at least seven of that suit. If that's the case you must verify that there is at least one suit where no cards have been dealt. Example: in the first round there are 8 hearts dealt but no clubs: Place the bet in the second round! Example 2: There have been 11 spades dealt (wow), but from all other suits at least 1: Sorry, no advantage.

That's it! For 7 cards dealt your advantage is somewhere between 1% and 3%, for 8 between 3% and 10% and for 9 between 6% and 20%. But remember, there has to be always at least 1 suit that hasn't been dealt.

One advantage I've seen on RM is if they cards are new. Because of the way they are washed then put in the shuffler the first hour or so tends to result in a lot of simple match hits. YMMV. :)

It seems, based on no math (lol), that if you played a single deck table that was full, and there were two rounds and enough players, it could be profitable to make this bet if no Queens or Kings have been dealt, that it could become profitable. But obviously, suit correlation is more important.
