What Blackjack side bets are available in AC?
Save

I typically do not play side bets on blackjack because in most (if not all) cases they provide a large house advanatage. That being said late at night after I have been playing for hours, I will ocassionally place a side bet to add a little more excitement. I figure this time if I am going to consider placing a sucker bet I will at least go in knowing how bad the odds are. From my trip to AC last year I remember seeing Lucky Ladies and Match the Dealer. I appreciate any input.

Lucky Ladies and Match the Dealer appear to be the majority of side bets in AC - I know Harrah's typically have the lucky ladies. I have not verified, but someone on another forum reported that Borgata offers the "in between" side bet now.

All the Trump Properties have Lucky Ladies and Match the Dealer.

I play Spanish 21 so it a match the dealer bet. I usually start out with a pink chip or $2.50 bet on the match and see how the cards are falling. Last Wednesday my first 2 hands matched perfectly for 12:1 pay. Then I hit imperfects for 3:1 almost every few hands of the shoe. It doubled up my chips nicely.

Good Luck

Statistically and theoretically the side bets are the worst bets in the house. But, I've seen people win a lot of money on these bad bets!!! :) As blackjack172 said, when the matches are coming they seem to keep coming, and you can collect a of chips. As far as the lucky ladies bet goes, if you are able to keep a running count of the cards, it's a great bet if the shoe is rich in 10's.

i also dont play side bets because of the odds, the odds of matching a single dealer card is 13 to 1 but they pay 4 to 1. i did however see walking past a table at taj something called dealer bust, i really didnt pay attention to it but i think it had something to do with the dealer breaking on three cards.

They actually pay 14 to 1 for an exact match, not 4 to 1. And a non-suited match pays 3 to 1.

i was referring to a non suited match. mohegan sun in ct. pays 4 to 1, at least they have some mercy, according to the wizard of odds, in an eight deck shoe, there are 2688 possible combinations for a suited match of a single card, therefore, you have a .03129 percent chance of a single card suited match. there are however 73836 possible combinations of not matching the card at all, so you are likely not to match the cards .856015 percent of the times. good luck.

The "in between" side bet at the Borgata was getting hit quite often when I was up there a two weeks ago. It may have been because the dealer had no clue what she was doing. She was paying people out when they didn't even meet the criteria.
