Stakes Payouts and House Edge

The bonus payouts will only be awarded to you if you have placed the side bet wager and when you get two winning hands on the trot the bonus payout is worth even money on your side bet wager. The side bet wager will then stay on place for the next hand dealt out and if the third hand is also a winning one the bonus payout is worth 2 to 1.

Once again if you do get three consecutive hands winning on the trot the bonus bet stays locked into place and a fourth winning hand on the trot sees you being awarded a bonus payout of 5 to1 and if the next hand is also a winning one you will then be paid out a bonus payout worth 1.00 to 200.00 and by adopting the perfect playing strategy for this game the house edge will be as low as 0.42%.

You will be offered the insurance side bet option but that side bet comes with a huge house edge attached to it so never be tempted to place it even though the 2 to 1 winning payout attached to that bet may seem attractive it is a very poor valued bet to place.

Players and Dealer Rules

You are never under any obligation to place the side bet wagers, however when playing the base hand if you have been dealt out a hard 9, 10 or 11 hand then you can double down that hand.

You can also split any matching pair of cards such as two 8’s but any pair of unalike 10 valued cards cannot be split. If any aces have been split then you can hit that hand as many times as you like unless of course the value of those split aces becomes higher than 21 in which case you have bust those hands.
