Surrender – A. Blackjack

When you surrender in blackjack you are immediately forfeiting your hand and getting 50% of your bet returned to you. An example would be if you bet $100 and were dealt a 16 versus a dealer’s 10, you might prefer to “surrender” the hand and get $50 back instead of potentially losing the entire $100. You’re taking an instant loss of half your bet in order to save the other half of the bet. Surrendering is only an option on your first two cards before you take a hit. This is not offered in all casinos around the country.

 

Big Blind – D. Poker

On Sundays, it usually refers to an interception ran for a TD in NFL, which I’m sure is a prop bet in Nevada Sports Books, but everywhere else it is a type of wager offered by horse racing tracks that requires bettors to select the winners of six consecutive races. Because of the great difficulty in picking six straight winners, plus the number of betting interests involved, payoffs for successful wagers are quite high.

An over/under bet, or total bet, is a single wager on whether or not the combined goal, point or run total of a single game will be over or under what the oddsmaker sets it at before the event.

Fortune Bonus – I. Pai Gow Poker

“Fortune” is a side bet in Pai Gow Poker that pays based on the value of the player’s seven cards. It doesn’t not matter how the player sets his hand. In addition, if another player has a four of a kind or better the player making the Fortune bet will get an “Envy Bonus.” At every table I have seen there is a $5 minimum and the Envy Bonus is a fixed amount.

Perfect Pairs Blackjack bet

Perfect pairs – A. Blackjack

A perfect pairs bet must be worth the minimum wager, and you’ll also have to make a normal bet too. For example, if you were making $5 bets, one $5 wager would go on the outcome of your regular hand, and the other $5 bet would be placed on the perfect pairs outcome.  To win a perfect pairs bet, you have to get a pair just like the name suggests. But the payout you receive all depends on the specific pair you get.
