Blackjack Lucky 13s a Hit Real Money Game Online

Many casino bosses have been saying “It is a real gamblers game made for gamblers”. It is the latest way to play Blackjack and it is taking off both in the live casinos that have taken up the game as well as in the online casino arena. It is generally played using a single deck of 52 cards with an additional 12 added in making it 64 cards per deck. In some casinos they do use more than 1 deck making the game even more interesting than the single deck version.

There are x4 11 cards, x4 12 cards and x4 13 cards added to the action, plus in addition to this it attracts those that love an extra wager via its protection and pairs side bets’

One of the big reasons casinos have adopted this game is mainly because the side bets are too hard to resist for most players; especially in Macau where taking a risk is a way of life. The pairs bet is particularly attractive because players can bet on a pair being dealt to their hand and receive a 12-1 pay back for being successful. If the dealer has a 13 hand, then the 12-1 is calculated and multiplied by 5; however, the house edge on this side bet is a whopping 5.88%, so this bet need to be played wisely.

As opposed to the pairs bet, the protection side bet is associated with the actual game itself because players can be dealt a bust hand before having a chance to hit or stand’

Busting on the first hand is quite common with 11, 12 and 13 cards in the deck. Some players bet the ‘pairs side bet’ in case they are dealt a pair of 11s, 12s or 13s, and with the protection bet can make for exciting return on investment. However, the main purpose of this bet is to cover the risk of going bust. Although, this bet also comes with odds in favour of the house at a rate of 8.45%.

What makes the pairs side bet so attractive is the pay-outs. 22 to 25 points pays 5-1 and anything above this pays 40-1

All the rules in the game are pretty neat too, and so many Blackjack players tend to love Lucky 13s despite its oddities. The dealer must stand any soft 17 or above and stands on any hard 16 hand. The dealer never tales a hole card and Blackjack ties rule in favour of the player. However, any other ties result in just a push. There is no surrender, but to make up for this players can split any pair and re-split. In the mist of all of this, the value of the Ace does not change, so it can be worth 1 or 11 as normal!

Overall this is one neat game and very well thought out to say the least! It comes with its own basic strategy tables too making it a firm fixture in the ever-growing list of Blackjack variants.
