# What is a 6'5 payout?

Last Updated: 28th February, 2020

Look out for a sign on the table that says “Blackjack Pays 6:5”. In a normal blackjack game, a “natural” or blackjack pays 3:2. If you bet \$10 and draw a blackjack, you'll be paid \$15. However, at these new 6:5 games, a \$10 blackjack wins only \$12.

Likewise, what does it mean when Blackjack pays 6 to 5?

So if you play \$10/hand and hit a blackjack, you get paid \$15 + your \$10 original bet = \$25 pay on a \$10 hand hitting blackjack. With 6:5, you get paid \$12 on that same \$10 hand when you hit blackjack + \$10 original bet = \$22 pay on a \$10 hand hitting blackjack.

Also, can you count cards in a 6 deck shoe? If the first six cards dealt in a multiple deck game are all small cards you also have a running count of +6. However, this doesn't add up to the same advantage because you have several decks in the shoe left to be dealt, therefore you must use a true count as your basis of increasing your wager.

what is a 3 2 payout?

Wins are paid out at 1:1, or equal to the wager, except for player blackjacks which are traditionally paid at 3:2 (meaning the player receives three dollars for every two bet) or one-and-a-half times the wager.

What is the best blackjack payout?

If you are dealt a blackjack, also known as a 2-card 21, you are payed at a higher rate than any other win. Most blackjack tables will have a blackjack payout of 3:2 or 3-to-2. This means that for a \$5 bet, you win \$7.50 instead of \$5.

## When should you double down?

There are three times we'd recommend placing the blackjack double down bet:
1. When your cards total 11 and the dealer has a low card (6 or lower).
2. When you have a soft 16, 17 or 18 (this means that you have a card plus an ace).
3. When you have a hard 9 or 10 (“hard” describes a hand with no ace).

## When should you split in blackjack?

The best time to split pairs in blackjack is when you're dealt 2 aces or 2 eights, which will increase your chances of getting 21. You should also split a pair of twos, threes, or sevens if the dealer shows a seven or lower. If the dealer shows a two through six, split a pair of sixes.

## How much money should I bring to a blackjack table?

A decent rule of thumb is to bring at least 100 betting units (for a 4 hour session). So if your betting unit is \$100, then I'd bring \$10K. That might sound like overkill, but I've had sessions where I've been in for that many bets or more.
