California No Bust Blackjack Introduction June 4, 2009 Update: The rules as shown on this page are long gone.
Rules Blackjack gardens Blackjack is a player-banked blackjack variation played at poker casinos in Los Angeles County.
The rules may vary from one casino to another.
For example, some casinos use more jokers or treat jokers as 2 or 12 points.
Each deck contains one joker.
The player must declare any natural immediately.
A joker with any other combination blackjack gardens card s counts as 21 points and standing is mandatory.
Players may not draw in this situation.
All player hands under 21 points will lose.
Additional bets by doubling or splitting shall push.
Player-banker has the opportunity to bank two hands before the turn passes.
The banker then is playing read article dealer's cards against the other players.
In this situation, the "corporation" will take up the slack.
The corporation is a heavily bankrolled pseudo-player who sits at each table at first base and blackjack gardens employed by a company that the casinocontracts.
These companies are allegedly non-profits.
The corporation"banks behind," meaning that it covers all wagers that the player-banker cannot cover.
They can but typically do not bet when it is not their turn to bank, and are not required to do so with the exception noted below.
However, they do take the banking opportunity every time it comes around to them.
If they do play, they follow a strict strategy card.
How this works is however complicated.
Based on the dealer's second card, an "action" marker is placed on one of the players hands counting around from the bank location.
Then, the dealer begins to pay the players in turn around the table beginning at the "action".
When all of the player-banker's money has been wagered i.
Thus, if the player-banker did not cover all the bets on the table, they may win when most of the table is losing, or lose when most of the table is winning, based on the luck of where the action falls.
They may do this cumulatively, i.
The corporation has control over these hands and plays them according to their basic strategy charts.
They keep these charts secret.
They then split the winning or losing between them.
To kum-kum, all players blackjack gardens agree and generally put up the exact same amount of money.
Other players may also opt to "second bank", that is to cover bets not covered by the player-banker's "first bank".
Also see the rules at the.
As far as I can tell the playing rules are the same at the Hustler Casino, except the number of decks.
Strategy Following is the basic strategy for the Hollywood Park Casino rules.
House Advantage According to my calculations the player has an advantage of 0.
Assuming a blackjack gardens commission the house edge would thus be 0.
It should be emphasized that the rounding rules on the commission would cause small wagers to carry a very high house edge.
It is hard to speculate on the advantage or disadvantage as dealer because it would be strongly dependent on the level of skill of the other players and how much they are betting.
It would be best to play at a table where most of the other players declined to bank.
Acknowledgements I would like to thank Bryan Mitchell for explaining the rules to me.
It had previously been difficult to get a clear explanation of the rules in full.
