# Thread: Sette e Mezzo

1. 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.....

2. .... 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 .

Ahhh. That's a good rule to remember

(if I ever get to play the game)

.... 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 = 7½ points

5. 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.

6. 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

7. 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 7½ points.

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