Basic Outline of sidebet rules / how to play

The game is played with 6 decks and the normal rules of Blackjack apply apart from the following variations:

The player is offered a FREE double on 2 card hard totals of 9, 10 &11, where the house will double for the player by using a “free bet” chip. All winning wagers are paid as in the regular game including the “FREE” bet.

The Player is offered a FREE split on all pairs except 5,s and any 10, s. re-splitting is allowed (up to 4 hands) including Aces. Again the house will split for the player using a “free bet” chip. All winning wagers will be paid as in the regular game.

All “Free Bets” will be paid as if the player had used their own money.

When all wagers have been dealt with, any “Free Bet” chips will be taken back by the dealer.

“Free bet” chips will have no value.

Blackjacks will be paid as in the regular game at odds of 3/2.

In the event that the dealers hand totals 22 all wagers still in play will push or stand (except Blackjacks which still win).

The following side bet is offered to all players on dealer attaining 22.

The side bet will pay 10-1 on any 22.

The side bet will pay 17-1 on any 22 with same colour.
