Thanks for clarification Buzz, that sounds like what they were trying to explain at Fiesta, but it didn't come out quite as succinctly :-)

The dealer checks for blackjack before resolving the House Money wagers.

If a player has AK suited and the dealer has blackjack, the player would win 9 to 1 on his HM bet. He cannot insure it and take 9 to 1 and then 1 to 1.

Sorry for the confusion.

--Roger


If the dealer doesn't have a natural, shouldn't the player then, at that point, be allowed to cap the bet for the full 3-2 payoff on all the monies? I can sort of understand not offering insurance/even money on the whole amount, but once the dealer has checked and there isn't a natural, seems lame to prohibit the stacking at that point.

You can indeed get 3/2 on house money bet.

If the dealer has an Ace or a 10 value showing, he’ll check for blackjack before paying winning
House Money wagers.
a. If he has blackjack, he will pay the winning House Money bets, but the players will not
have the option of leaving their House Money bonus wager winnings on the House
Money bet spot. At that point the dealer will follow the casino’s standard blackjack rules.
b. If he doesn’t have blackjack, the dealer will work clockwise from his left to his right. He
will pay the winning House Money wagers and then ask the players if they want to leave
all or a portion of the proceeds (the win plus the original House Money wager) given to
them on the House money bet spot. Players may elect to leave none or any percentage up
to 100% of the House Money proceeds. Once all House Money wagers have been
resolved the dealer will follow the casino’s standard blackjack rules.

The second sentence under b is ambiguous.

House Money sidebet was just put in Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, CA. Is pretty much the same as listed expect the max side bet is 25 dollars and if you get a Suited AK, the BJ pays 2-1 instead of 3-2. Probably won't matter to most but figured I would give the heads up.

From what the shuffle man said, it is at the following casinos:

Cannery

Club Fortune

Venetian

Palazzo

Don't know how they adapted it, I guess all that stuff is up to the individual casino.

Sadly still no news of 3 card Mulligan making a return :(
