Introduction to: BlackJack Block Bonus®
The following text is provided by the Wizard of Odds himself.

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.

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.

Let us start off with Casino Holdem® and its Side Bet of AA+ Bonus.

Introduction to: Casino Holdem®
Casino Hold 'Em is a poker variation, similar to Texas Hold 'Em, that is played in Egypt, Russia, South Africa, Holland, Latvia, Estonia, Ireland, Morocco, Malta, Ukraine, Panama, and Romania. It is also available to play online at casinos using Net Gaming, Real Time Gaming, Playtech...

Roules

1. Play begins with each player making an ante bet.

2. Two cards are dealt face down to each player and dealer. The player may examine his own cards. The dealer will also deal three community cards (called the flop) in the center of the table.

3. Each player must decide whether to fold or to call. If the player folds he gives up his cards and his ante bet. If the player calls, the call must be equal to twice the ante bet.

4. The dealer deals two more community cards for a total of five. The dealer exposes his own two cards.

5. The player's hand is scored according to the highest poker value of the player's two cards and the five community cards. Likewise the dealer shall use his own two cards and the five community cards.

6. The dealer must have a pair of fours or better to qualify. If the dealer does not qualify then the ante will pay according to the ante pay table below and the call bet will push.

7. If the dealer qualifies and beats the player then the player will lose both the ante and call bets.

8. If the dealer qualifies and the player beats the dealer then the ante bet pays according to the Ante Pay Table below and the call bet will pay 1 to 1.

9. If the dealer qualifies and the player ties with the dealer then both ante and call bets will push.

Strategy
Unfortunately there is no easy way to quantify optimal strategy for this game. I can say the optimal strategy player will raise 82% of the time. So only in the worst 18% of hands should the player fold. In general these are when the player has two singletons in the hole that are low compared to the flop with little or no chance for a straight or flush.

Side Bets
I am aware of two side bets, known as the AA+ Bonus as follows. Both are based on the poker value of the player's two cards and the three flop cards.
