    Free Bet Blackjack

    Free Bet Blackjack is one of Evolution's ambitious roster of new live games for 2019.

    It is now up and running at a few of the early adopters, including Unibet

    Free Bet Blackjack in essence builds on the Infinite Blackjack table from Evolution.

    The "Free Bet" description comes from the table game tweak that Doubles (on hands 9-11) & Splits (2-9 & Aces) cost nothing (ie. no doubling of your bet stake).


    BUT, the Dealer pushes on 22 (as opposed to busts on regular tables).


    Has the same side bets as Infinite Blackjack & the Six Card Charlie rule

    see here how a Free Split involving a pair of 6's resulted in a win for both hands (returning 3 from a bet of 1),

    A 'regular' win, & the all important RTP as quoted on the help page = 98.45% (less than Infinite blackjack!),

    that Doubles (on hands 9-11) & Splits (2-9 & Aces) cost nothing (ie. no doubling of your bet stake)
    And the free Double or Split is still optional?

    Be interesting to run the maths on this. eg if a Spit doubles your bet stake on the house, do you go ahead and Split in a situation that you definitely wouldn't be splitting playing 'regular' blackjack rules.

    eg. player 6,6 versus dealer 10 or Ace up card?

    Odds are you lose each hand. Plus even greater odds than normal you don't win either hand with dealer's 22 push.
    But one of them is a free hit...

    Yes they are.

    ....I was having similar thoughts about those situations.

    It's a genius rule tweak. Has the great minds of blackjack confused as to what to do

    But seriously, what they've done here is pretty clever. Make a house edge bet seem attractive.
