This one will be harder than the average side bet to analyze, ...



I see that I already analyzed it, but it no longer is on the site. I still have my spreadsheet on it, so will recreate a page for it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Interestingly I found the date I originally looked at this was 2012. Just to let you know using your figures from https://wizardofodds.com/games/blackjack/appendix/9/6ds17r4/ I get that you play 9.8 vs 6. Also ref https://www.ukcasinotablegames.info/blackjackhousemoney.html although it doesn't have a start date.

In the UK I remember it being a nightmare as they had to keep the side bet separate from the main bet because they hadn't peeked. Also it meant you split Aces vs Ace with your main bet, so the actual House Edge was higher.

House Money as a gambling expression: Its a common phenomenon. See Harry Bosch Season Five on Amazon.

House Money as a specifically entitled table game: Ain't never played it; ain't never gonna play it.

I saw the game several years ago at the Venetain and even played a shoe or two. In my opinion, it can't compete with Freebet.

Pala Casino in Southern CA has this for years and it has VERY high participation rate; local BJ players there love it. The thrill of getting a great hand is hard to be described in text. Let's say you have $10 on main and $10 on HM. You are dealt a As-Ks blackjack, making $90 on HM. Stack $100 on main. You are then paid $165 (1.5x on $110) automatically.
