Stravaganza is a table game offered by Playtech casinos. Ironically, this is one of the first games I was ever hired to analyze. I have a spreadsheet on the game from 1999. However, it looks like they changed the rules a little since I analyzed it 17 years ago. So, I redid my analysis.

Please click the link above to see my new page on the game. As always, I welcome all comments, questions, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play Stravaganza, if given the chance (multiple votes allowed).
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Was the House Edge greater or lower when you first analyzed it?

A little lower. From my old spreadsheet, which I did an awful job documenting, there was no "stay" option, but just fold. Most of the time the player will lose anyway if he stays, but those times he stays on a 10, and wins or ties, does cut it down a little.

Just added an analysis of the side bet to my Stravaganza page. I welcome all comments.
