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.
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.
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.
While this thread has been bumped, is the game live anywhere in LV right now?
From what the shuffle man said, it is at the following casinos:
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 :(
