Innovative blackjack games with side bets have not just been developed for online casino play. You find them at land casinos as well One of them is Buster Blackjack. It was first located in California card rooms several years ago and has been booming in land based casinos. Playtech picked it up and converted it to an online blackjack variant. You can now play it at online casinos like Mansion Casino and Omni Casino.
The Buster Blackjack side bet is fast becoming one of the most popular blackjack side bets at online casinos. The reason is that this side bet wins when the dealer busts. With every player at the table wanting the dealer to bust there will surely be some mind power willing this to happen.
You have to place the Buster Blackjack side bet to receive a payout when the dealer busts. And, as in all online blackjack variants, you can only place the side bet if you play the man game. Playing only the Buster Blackjack side bet is not allowed. Also you place the side bet along with the main game bet before the first cards are dealt. If the dealer does not bust you lose the Buster Blackjack side bet. If the dealer busts the side bet wins automatically, irrespective of the outcome of the main game.
The real thrill of the Buster Blackjack side bet is that the payout is progressive, based on the number of cards that were used for the dealer to bust. The minimum number required for the dealer to bust three cards and even this awards a crazy payout of 2 to 1. If the dealer busts with 8 cards or more the payout is 250 to 1. There is a pleasant twist to the tail. If you get a blackjack and the dealer busts there are whopping payouts under certain circumstances. If you have a blackjack and the dealer busts with 7 cards the payout is 800 to 1. And if you have a blackjack and the dealer busts with 8 cards or more the payout is an unimaginable 2000 to 1.
An analysis of the Buster Blackjack side bet reveals that it has a house edge of 6.2%. This may put off dedicated blackjack players. But given the high payouts it is worth a try. Playtech Buster Blackjack is a multi-hand online blackjack variant, where you can play up to three hands against the dealer.
