Has anyone has a chance to play this game or analyze this game from a house edge standpoint?

Description of the rules and where you saw it would be nice. Never heard of it, myself.

Bodog Casino brings exclusive new Blackjack game (Zappit) online

How Zappit Blackjack works:
This game follows the main rules of Blackjack but, if your initial two cards total hard 15, 16 or 17, then you can "Zap" that hand and have it replaced with two new cards. Again in order to allow for this great feature the only change is that if the dealer hits 22, remaining bets are returned as a "push."

I'm guessing always zap except eights, then play the strategy from the Blackjack Switch page. No idea what the house edge might be, or when surrender would be appropriate, or when to keep eights.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

You should 'Zap' everything except 8,8 verses a dealer 6 or 7. You would then follow the 'Blackjack Switch' strategy. Of course, a lot of players will keep a '17' especially against a dealer 'bust' card.

House edge for the land-based version is 0.71% for 6 decks and 0.75% for 8 decks. The online version currently pays 1/1 for a 'Zapped' Blackjack and allows 'Surrender' after a 'Zap' and this gives a house edge around 1%. You can try the game for fun if you go to either bodog.eu or bovada.lv and click on 'Instant Play'. Look for the 'Zappit' game and then click on 'Practice Mode' after clicking on the game icon.

For geoff's sake, I hope he designed this game, or at least he gets something foe the push 22.

If you Google it, it says he did design it.



Correct but I appreciate the sentiments Tringlomane.

And surrender? I'm guessing there are more surrenders because of your rule...
