First of all, it allows you to play 3 hands at the same time. The game starts with the player placing a bet and being dealt two face-up cards and the third, face-down card. The dealer receives two cards, one of them face-up. At this point, the player can play Burn by placing a Burn bet at a price of half of the original wager. If they go for this, their second card will be burned and the third card will replace it.
It was confusing at first when I started, as time goes by. Pretty much got it.Anonymous Player
You can see one of the dealer’s cards. If it’s an Ace, you can play an Insurance bet for a chance to insure a part of your wager. The Insurance bet pays 2:1. A Blackjack pays only 1:1, though. As for other rules, the dealer hits a soft 17 and the player can Split only once. In addition, the player can Double on any first two cards and after Split. Surrender is not an option in this Blackjack variant.
When it comes to the Burn bet, it pays when you get an Ace as a Burn card. If it is an Ace of Spades, you win 7:1 on the Burn bet. All other Aces earn you 2:1, which means you get your original wager back. Any other Burn card you get will result in losing the Burn bet.
Frankly speaking, although the Burn bet may seem tempting, it is a risky wager. However, there are a few situations in which you should consider playing this side bet. For instance, if your first card is 7 and your second card is 8 or 9 and the dealer’s face-up card is 7, you can play the Burn bet. Other situations in which you should always play Burn is when you have a hand of 9 and 6 or 7, 10 and 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 or A and 2, 3, 4 or 5.
You should never Burn when you receive 8 and 2 or 3 regardless of the dealer’s face-up card. The same goes for a hand consisting of 8 and 10 or A or 9 and 2, 9, 10 or A. Other situations in which you should not Burn include 10 and 8, 9, 10 or A and A and 8, 9, 10 and A.
- Burn if the first card is a 7, the second card is an 8 or 9, and the dealer up card is a 7.
- Burn if the first card is an 8, 9, 10, or ace according to the following table.
- Do not burn in all other situations.
