Hello wizzards

Been Playing this game recently that pays 6.5 to 1 on any BlackJack but only pays you half on your original bet on any win. How much am i giving up on that?
DD 9,10.11
Split only once for a total of two hands
No DAS
Player wins on 6 card charlie
Dealer Stands on 17 or on 6 cards
Single Deck shuffles every hand

Can you help me determine my edge ?

Just to make sure I have this right. You bet $10. You win $65 on a blackjack, but if you win any other hand, you get $5?

That sounds awful.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

The dealer stand rule seems unique.

I have a feeling that the strategies (and there will be at least 2) are somewhat different from standard.

I'm sure the casino's marketing will call it what they like, but it seems aesthetically displeasing to tag it with "blackjack" instead of "a novel 21 based carnival game".
May the cards fall in your favor.

Wouldn't this be countable?

When the count is high the profit should be fantastic. Add in wonging out or using someone to play low until the count is high.

Single deck shuffle after every hand.

If there's a chance that this game runs in cycles how would I be able to prove it. Number of hands in between BJs or units Up or Down?
I never advocate any gamblers fallacy but I've been playing it for a while and then i found this /forum/gambling/blackjack/3064-black-gold-21/
which reinforced my suspicion just a bit the gentleman describes another game but the manual describes mine . Left me with more questions than answers. Please help

I think there is not much in it, maybe a small player edge of about 1% ( but I only did it very rough, so could be "way off")

Also, do you only get paid 1 to 2 on any double as well ? ( I assumed yes, but doesn't hurt to ask).

Also, on splits, do wins on each hand pay 1 to 2. Or is it just the original bet that gets paid 1 to 2?
