You have the urge to play blackjack, but have no clue about the correct strategy. There is a fixed odds game that you can try. It is from the online casino games supplier Playtech and is called Lucky Blackjack. The unusual blackjack game is not played against the dealer. Only the dealer’s hand is dealt as per the usual blackjack rules and you have to bet on the final value of this hand.

After you place your bets, the dealer keeps drawing cards until the value of the hand is equal to or greater than 17, including the soft 17. The following outcomes are possible. The dealer can end with hand values of 17, 18 19, 20 and 21. There are two special outcomes. The dealer will bust if his hand value exceeds 21 and the dealer can also draw a blackjack.

In Lucky Blackjack you can bet on one or more of the above seven options. If the option you bet on is the actual outcome in the deal then you receive the payout as per the given table. Betting and winning on 17 yields a payout of 5 to 1, on 18 yields a payout of 6 to 1, on 19 yields a payout of 6 to 1, on 20 a payout of 4 to 1, on 21 a payout of 12 to 1, on Bust a payout of 2 to 1 and on Blackjack a payout of 19 to 1. If the player has guessed wrong he loses those bets.

Though there is no playing strategy required in Lucky Blackjack, you have to be aware that the different bets offer different house edges, so you have to choose well. The probabilities of the different outcomes of the dealer's hand have been made available using computer simulation. From these and the odds offered you can estimate the house edge for each bet. The dealer will bust about 28.4% of the time. For this the mathematically correct odds should be 5 to 2. The actual payout offered is only 2 to 1. This results in a very high house edge for the bet and it should be avoided.

The best bets in Lucky Blackjack are the dealer having a hand value of 18, 19, 21 or blackjack. The house edges for these bets are nowhere close to those in the regular online blackjack variants. But you get such low house edges only in games of skill. The house edges in these Lucky Blackjack bets are comparable to those in online slots. You can play Lucky Blackjack at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
