Introduction to: BlackJack Block® Bonus

Blackjack Block is a side bet that can be played on any blackjack game. The game is based on the initial two cards and the dealer’s up card. Video Presentation

Rules:
1. The side bet (Blackjack Block) can be played on any blackjack game. There is no strategy to the side bet (Blackjack Block) so it will not interfere with the blackjack play.

2. The side bet (Blackjack Block) shall win or lose depending only on the player’s initial 2 cards and the dealer’s up card.

3. If the player’s cards are different rank and suit, and 1 of them matches the dealer’s suit and exceeds the dealer’s rank the player shall have a “Normal Block” which pays 2 to 1.

4. If the suit of both player cards match the suit of the dealer card, and at least 1 of the player's card exceeds the dealer card in rank, then the player shall have a “Flush Block”, which pays 5 to 1.

5. If the player has an unsuited pair, and 1 of them match the dealer card in suit, and exceed the dealer card in rank, then the player shall have a “Pair Block”, which pays 10 to 1 with 2 or more decks, and 15 to 1 in a single deck game.

6. If the player’s 2 cards are same in both rank and suit, and that suit matches the dealer’s suit, and the player’s rank exceeds the dealer’s rank, then the player shall have a “Ultimate Block” which pays from (35 to 60) to 1, depending on the number of decks. However this win does not apply to a single deck game since it is impossible to have two identical cards in a single deck.

7. If at least 1 of the player cards matches the dealer’s card in both rank and suit, and other card (if any) does not match the dealer’s suit or is less in rank than the dealer’s rank. Then the player shall have a tie, which is a push.

Stephen,

I like the Hold 'em game, similar to Texas Hold 'em Bonus.
We have a topic area here for game new games and their designs, under "Game Inventors Corner."

Generally we discuss, argue the merits, and disect members' new games as the best way to pitch them.

Best of luck!

Thanks, Paigowdan.

I agree with your first comment; but I would put it differently: Texas Hold'em Bonus is like my game; not the other way round! lol

For the record I devised Casino Hold'em in the year 2000 and I hold the (US, Australian & South African) Patent Rights for Texas Hold'em (and similar) against the House.

Some years later I granted permission to Mikohn Gaming Corporation to exploit their proposed version of the Game (Now Belong to Shuffle Master) - hence Texas Hold'em Bonus - it's not a bad game, but I think mine's better!

Good Luck with your games 'EZ PaiGow'. If I can be of any help...

I will put some of my newer games in "Game Inventors Corner." Soon
