House edge and rules


Cryptologic currently have a single-deck blackjack game with an overall payout of 99.59% and a house edge of 0.41%.

The rules are:

• Hard 17
• Double on 9, 10 and 11 only
• No Double After Split
• No peek - (ENHC)

These are very poor rules, which give this single deck game a return worse than some eight deckers.


Basic strategy charts


The following is the correct basic strategy for this game - the top row represents the dealer's up card, the left-hand column the player hand:

S = stand, H = hit, D = double, P = split
