The other night at the casino, my friend and I stopped at an empty Blackjack table and talked to a dealer we knew from the bac tables. The sign said, "New Game. Double down on any first 10 Value card for 20% commission".
And what the dealer told us, you could double down up to the table limit, taking your initial wager into account. It was a $1,000.00 max table, so if you had $100.00 as your initial wager and your first card was a face card, you could double up to a $900.00 additional wager.
So if you placed $500.00 for the double down, you would have to pay a $100.00 commission up front to the dealer at the same time.
The dealer said works both ways. Some people were absolutely smacking the casino, big time on it and others--just surrendering their bank rolls/buy ins virtually every time they did it.
Anyone seen this or play it anywhere??
