InterBlock Video Blackjack - Odds & Strategy

Hello. New to Vegas. This is my first time posting here...

Can someone point me to the best Strategy Generator, or generate a Strategy for me? With Odds?

I would like to generate the ODDS and Basic Strategy (Not Card Counting) for the "InterBlock" Video Blackjack machine... I've seen these in various strip casinos, but specifically I happen to play at the "Tuscany" casino, just off the strip... Many Odds and Strategy generators that I see do not specify all of the Rules / Variations. I need to be able to input all of the following:

Number of decks used: 8
Cut Card OR Continuous Shuffling? Continuous Shuffling
Dealer hits on Soft 17? YES
Dealer "Peeks" to check for blackjack before player acts? YES
Blackjack (in player's first 2 cards) beats a dealer score of 21? YES
Player loses ONLY original bet against dealer blackjack (with ace in the hole)? NO

Blackjack Payout: 3:2
Insurance Payout: 2:1
Other Payouts: 1:1

Double allowed on any 2 cards (including soft hands)? YES
Double after split allowed? YES
Double allowed after splitting Aces? NO
Double after Hit allowed? NO

Number of Times 2s through Ts may be Split: 1
Number of Times Aces May be Split: 1
Number of Times 2s through Ts may be RE-Split: 0
Number of Times Aces May be RE-Split: 0
Hitting allowed after splitting Aces? NO (You get only ONE card for each hand after you split Aces.)
If you get AT or TA after splitting, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack, so it pays only even money.

Insurance offered on Dealer Ace? YES
Surrender allowed (losing 1/2 your bet)? NO
Late Surrender allowed? NO

Hi, and welcome.

You've written your question as a blog post, where it will tend to get little attention.
