I am announcing the release of a new statistical blackjack side bet analysis VBA Excel spreadsheet. You can find it in the downloads section of this blog, or just CLICK HERE.
This spreadsheet allows the user to compute the house edge for any pay table, any number of decks for a number of popular blackjack side bets. In addition, this spreadsheet allows the user to input a custom shoe composition or to follow the play of a shoe in real-time and get updated edges after each hand. This facilitates computation of EORs to develop counting systems, assists online play and also allows surveillance to assess if a player is using a system to get an edge.
As of this writing, the side bets the sheet includes are the following:
- King’s Bounty
- Lucky Ladies
- Lucky Lucky
- Pair Square
- Perfect Pairs
- Royal Match
- Royal 20’s
- 21+3 (all versions)
