Perfect Pairs

Perfect Pairs Blackjack uses the same rules as Vegas Strip Blackjack but with an extra feature, a side bet. The Side bet is for Perfect Pairs. By placing a bet in the perfect pairs spot on the blackjack table you are placing a side bet that the first two cards dealt to your hand will be a pair. If the cards are not pairs you will loose your wager, if they are pairs the hand will continue and when it finishes you will win your wager and get paid out at 5, 10 or 30 times your wager depending on what type of perfect pair you are dealt.

The breakdown for the perfect pairs are as follows:
  • Perfect Pairs pays 30 to 1 (ie. two (2) Jacks of Diamonds)
  • Colored Pairs pays 10 to 1 (ie. one Jack of Diamonds, one Jack of Hearts)
  • Mixed Pairs pays 5 to 1 (ie. one Jack of Diamonds, one Jack of Clubs)
As you can see in the example below, a $25 wager was placed as the main wager and a matching $25 wager was placed on the Perfect Pairs side wager. The (Perfect Pairs wager doesn't have to be the same value as the main wager.) The deal was a pair of threes and using basic strategy I was able to hit to 21 and win the hand.
My total wager was $50 and my total win was $175. My perfect paid winnings for this hand were $175 - $25(wager) - $25(winnings for hand) = $125 or 5 times my original wager.
