I'm from Europe, so I play blackjack with the European hole card rule. It's a multiple-deck game. The dealer deals out the first card to all of the players and one to.

Beware of single deck games that only pay even money or 6 to 5 on a blackjack, you are much better off at a shoe game that does pay 3 to 2. I was at the Luxor.

If you do play a game with a negative house edge then, yes, that does mean you will have better odds than the house, assuming you play the basic strategy. What is important is whether the player can lose more than their original wager if the dealer has a blackjack. After taking a huge beating, the Atlantic City casinos begged the gaming authorities for a change in the rules, which they got. It doesn't matter which card the dealer takes. The typical Las Vegas single-deck game does not allow doubling after a split and the dealer hits a soft With these rules, the house edge is 0. To adjust for this European no-peek rule, the player should be more conservative about doubling and splitting when the dealer has a potential blackjack. So, the overall house edge would be 8. Not only could this be beaten, but I think it would be a card counters dream. It may also be the result of progressive betting or mistakes in strategy. It is my understanding that they do provide an honest random shuffle. Only over the very long haul does a net profit become likely. Sorry I am not of more help than that. At the time you wrote this I indicated the house edge according to a fixed set of rules that varied only by the number of decks. The best single-deck game is at the Slots-a-Fun next to Circus Circus where the dealer stands on soft 17 for a player edge of 0. I wrote my own combinatorial program which cycles through every possible event and keeping a running tally of all the possible outcomes weighted by their probability. Your other question about bad strategies was such a good one I added information to my blackjack section about it. You should follow my multiple-deck strategy but surrender against aces in the same hands as the single-deck strategy. I agree that the double after split rule increases the standard deviation. This means you will spend more time playing, and thus more hands for the house edge to grind you down. This is because in a live casino the dealer will generally deal until a certain point is reached, finish that hand, and then reshuffle. Update Jan 22, Unified Gaming changed the rules of their game years ago to remove the player advantage. Except in cases where re-splitting pairs is involved, my calculations are exactly right. Assuming you put the greatest priority on player odds I would have to go with a Unified Gaming casino. If the deck is rich in small cards good for the dealer when the cut card or shuffle point is reached then more cards are likely to be dealt than if the deck were rich in big cards at the shuffle point good for the player. For a list visit my online casino index. I haven't done any simulations, but my educated option is a definite yes, this game can be beaten. My list of rule variations says that the 6-card Charlie rule is worth 0. The effect over thousands of hands is that a disproportionately high number of small cards are dealt which is directly related to a lower player return on investment. According to my blackjack house edge calculator , the house edge before the 6-card Charlie rule and the on blackjack after splitting, is 0. However, only double up on amounts you're comfortable with losing. The effect is not huge but it is mathematically better to play with the same rules at an online casino as opposed to a physical casino. I called one online casino that uses Unified Gaming and they were not even aware the new software allowed for early surrender on aces. That is a good question. I have already enhanced the house edge table in the blackjack section to include a wider variation in rules. This is above whatever the house edge is assuming proper basic strategy. If you play it let me know how you do. It is hard to find a blackjack game where the basic strategy player has an edge over the house. For more information on the European no-hole-card rules, please see my European blackjack basic strategy. Thanks for the compliment. This certainly is a very interesting game. This assumes the dealer stands on a soft 17, which I believe is what you do. Next door, at the Westward Ho, double after a split is allowed but the dealer hits a soft 17 for a house edge of 0. About card counting, absolutely not, even the best of card counters will lose often. I organized the table this way to illustrate the effect of the number of decks. So, the house edge over the overall game is 0. However, in real life, when single deck is offered the other rules invariably become more stingy. However, the shuffling machine allows the dealer to waste less time shuffling and spend more time dealing. To answer your question, my blackjack house edge calculator says the house edge is 0. However, a quick and easy estimate is to simply divide the fee by the bet as the increase in house edge due to the fee. What you have experienced is likely the result of some very bad losing streaks. Not having enough money to double or split, but otherwise playing correctly, adds 1. If you are using basic strategy, then the shufflers actually lower the house edge slightly, due to the omission of the cut card effect. You're right, it is more likely the dealer will make a pat hand. The only exception is certain craps bets that usually result in a push, namely the place, buy, lay, and hard ways, that tend to remain up until resolved. I haven't studied if counting this game is more profitable than the single-deck game, but I would be interested to hear from anyone who is doing as you suggest. From my blackjack appendix 2 , the following are the probabilities of the dealer's final total given a 5 as an up card. It was determined using a random simulation program of mine. According to my blackjack house edge calculator , and before considering the double any number of cards rule, the house edge is 0. If you win only even money on a blackjack, then that increases the house edge by 2. Using the Blackjack Count Analzyer I get a player advantage of 1. The strategy to use in this game would be to bet the minimum when the odds are against you and the maximum when they are in your favor. It still doesn't pay to split tens. If I had been at this game I would have played it hard.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Unfortunately I don't have exact standard deviation figures according to specific sets of rules. Unified Gaming offers the best blackjack game for the basic strategy player I have ever seen is offered anywhere. The 1. According to my list of rule variations , being allowed to double on any number of cards a rule commonly found in Panama is worth 0. You didn't state the surrender rule, so I'll assume it isn't allowed. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Yes, however the edge would actually be less for the basic strategy player in a live casino. My list of rule variations says the effect of losing on ties is 8. So, the overall house edge is 0. Surrender would decrease it. Let's say the house edge is 0. I give the house edge figures as a service to my visitors. See my remarks on bad strategies. I recommend the double or nothing feature because it is a zero house edge bet. Assuming six decks, and the dealer hits on soft 17, if the dealer is forced to play out every hand them my blackjack appendix 2B says the probability of the dealer busting is However, in a head-to-head game where the dealer doesn't bother to draw cards if the player has a blackjack or busts first, then my blackjack appendix 4 says the probability of busting is According to Extra Stuff by Peter Griffin the cost due to player mistakes of the average player is 1. In other words, a player advantage of 0. For those bets, I define the house edge as the expected loss per bet resolved. The player edge in single-deck blackjack on my site is based on otherwise multiple deck rules, which rarely exist in single deck. Normally a sudden 50 times increase in bet size would set off a huge red flag but it seems the counter could do this with impunity in your game. For those who don't understand what you're asking, there are new machines that take the blackjack discards and place them randomly back in the deck after each hand. You have a legitimate point. I always include pushes in the house edge. It also varies by place, Atlantic City players are better than Las Vegas players, for example. An entire month can be at a loss. For more on this topic, please see my blackjack appendix 10 on the cut-card effect. If I'm playing for fun then I leave the table when I'm not having fun any longer. For more information on the mathematical effect of continuous shufflers, please see my blackjack appendix I'm going to assume that eight decks are used and that the bonuses are not applicable if the dealer has a blackjack. Good question. I have actually seen these rules when I went to Helsinki in Without a doubt, the worst blackjack rules I have ever seen. For example, at Starnet casinos, if the dealer has a ten up, and the player has an 11 and doubles, then the dealer can draw an ace afterward, for a blackjack, and the player will lose both the original bet and the double. You'll enjoy a player edge of 0. I speculate the creators of the software made a mistake and only intended to offer late surrender on tens and aces, as was the case with the preceding version.
