I ran into a new sidebet in a blackjack game and was wondering what the house edge was. In addition to the house edge what would be the optimum count have to be to lessen the edge and gain an advantage if there is one. You put out a sidebet of 1-50 dollars per hand betting that the dealer's up card is between your two. If he matches yours it pays 30-1, if the one between 12-1, two between 6-1, three between 4-1 and finally any between 1-1. Any insight or help would be appreciated. Thanks
Hi, in response to your query it's 8decks with the ace high. I would prefer not to mention the casino if you don't mind. I would gladly send you the location if you pm me if that's possible. Thanks.
Why dont you want to mention it? I know side bets are sucker bets but it seems like a fun bet to make, is there even private messaging on this site?
This side bet replaced Royal Match at the live BJ tables at MarylandLive.
Only the difference is the payouts are:
This is based on my recollection. I am sure of the 10-1 1-spread return. So, what is the EV like on this?
