Tips, Terms & Wins

Blackjack Side Bet: Royal Match
A player makes a side bet and gets paid a bonus if the first two cards are suited (3 to 1) and a 10 to 1 bonus if the two suited cards are a king and queen (royal
match). These payoffs are for single deck games and the house edge is around 4%.
The payoffs can vary from the above and the odds change if more decks of cards are used.
But no matter, I’ve yet to see an established payoff high enough that reduces the house edge to a respectable level. Avoid this side bet.
