    No, don’t forget that the King of Coins is a wild card - can assume the value of ANY other card.

    Royal is a two-card combination that includes King of Coins

    In this example the King of Coins was the second card, taking on the value of 7.....

    .... there is a fundamental mistake in my previous maths though, I realised after posting.

    The probability is ~0.99% (assuming you never hit on first card 7)


    ie. King of Coins dealt first & then a 7 card,

    or any other face card & then King of Coins.


    (in both these cases you naturally take a second card)





    Including Hit on any first card 7 increases the overall probability by another ~0.26%, but of course at the greater risk of Busting....you’re only going to do this if you are a risk taker & Dealer shows 7 also, or else going for the Mano di Poker side bet.


    If you are dealt a 7 first card, then the probability of King of Coins next is 2.63% and 31.58% for any face card (when the Dealer doesn’t have a face card) so you might consider it a risk worth taking .

    .... good things come to those who wait ... hope you enjoy it eventually


    There is more to take onboard than usual with, new deck of cards, game rules & a specific card rule.

    The King of Coins card is ‘interesting‘ in normal play.....with its value changing as the hand develops

    eg.

    2 of Cups & King of Coins (takes value 5) = 7 points

    [Hit]

    2 of Cups & King of Coins (value now 4) & Ace Clubs = 7 points

    [Hit]

    2 of Cups & King of Coins (this time remains at 4) & Ace Clubs & Cavalier of Swords = 7 points

    and you might be pleasantly surprised by the RTP rate

    I still haven’t covered everything, but here it is anyway,

    the quoted theoretical percentage return to player (RTP) is 99.31% on the main game.

    Pretty good returning game...assuming you're playing perfect strategy.

    Not sure that'll be the case for most giving it a go

    True that.

    Regarding strategy, if you’re a ‘safety first’ blackjack player you definitely have to be more Cavalier getting nearer to that magical 7 points.

    At the start of the game 50% of the cards are of value 2 or lower!
