One popular game of blackjack played all around the world is European Blackjack, which is frequently offered with an additional side bet that can pay as much as 10:1 of the original bet amount.
The side bets offered in European blackjack vary depending on the specific version of the game and from casino to casino but today we’re going to talk about two interesting variations: High Streak and Hi-Lo 13 สมัครสล็อตรอยัล.
European Blackjack Rules
European blackjack is a version that uses only two decks of cards. This is attractive because using two decks offers players a house advantage of just 0.46%.
European blackjack is most frequently played using 6 decks of cards but as with any other blackjack game, the number of decks used can vary, which in turn increase or decrease the casino’s advantage, so check before playing.
Unlike many other blackjack games, Splitting is permitted only when the player is holding a pair of 10’s but apart from this, players can Hit or Double Down after splitting.
When the dealer’s up card is an Ace, you can buy Insurance and get a 2:1 payout in case the dealer has blackjack.
You’re also allowed to Double Down on the first two cards dealt that total either nine, ten and eleven in value and receive one more card.
A winning hand in this game will payout bets at 1:1 and natural blackjacks are paid at 3:2.
How to Win the High Streak Side Bet
In European High Streak the player can bet on winning 2, 3, 4 or 5 hands in a row and get payouts as high as 10:1 of the original bet amount.
The side game begins with players placing a wager on the High Streak and it’s “activated” once the player wins the first hand. The payout for this side bet is increased every time the player wins another hand.
