Played FBBJ for the first time the other night in the Rainbow, and most enjoyable it was. Returning home I deciced to print out and laminate a WOO basic strategy chart for the game, thus ensuring I'm only 0.73% to the bad next time I play. Should be interesting though, I get some funny looks playing basic strategy on the standard version of the game. When I start hitting hard seventeens on my free bet hands, I'm pretty confident it will cause some consternation amongst my fellow players.

Just a note on the dealer training side of things. I noted that when the dealer made 22 they called "22", whereas 23 to 26 was "Too many". Might I suggest the former become "22 push", helping ensure the dealer does not pay out in error.

Good to hear that they distinguish between a '22' and a 'bust' hand - '22 push' may help even further.

Just wait until you get to double A,9 verses dealer 6 on a free bet - that will definitely raise some eyebrows despite being the correct play :-)

But if I get an Ace on that Double down, should I fear a tap on the shoulder from security ?

Some excellent news to help increase the exposure and momentum on the 'Strip' is that Casino Royale are adding a 2nd 'Free Bet' table just 6 weeks after installing the first one.

And it's a 6 to 5 payoff, no less, or so I believe. " Free is definitely the magic word in marketing any product !

Correct, it is 6/5 Buzz - hopefully it will lead to more 3/2 games on the Strip though.

Excellent news Switch! I played Free Bet in a Washington card room and it was a busy table on a Friday night. Dealers were excited about the game and inidcated that it had attracted some regular players in the 2+ months since the install.
