Some people just have all the luck in the world no matter which casino game they play while other folk are just lucky for a while. The next thing you know they are trying to pour their beer into the shuffle machine, which dealers as a whole seem to frown upon, go figure.
Then you get folk that always feel lucky when they play table games, a top table game player I spoke to said to me ”if I don’t feel lucky I don’t play”. To be honest I wish it were that simple, thing is to be good at blackjack you must understand the game’s rules, odds and strategy right down to a ‘T’. The question is why is ‘John’ (not person’s real name) so lucky when it comes to playing blackjack? The answer is simple, he told me he doesn’t play side-bets or bonus wagers because the house edge can be high at times.

By the way if you’re looking for an online casino that offers a decent amount of table games we recommend Frank Casino. The most played side bet game at Vegas casinos in 2012 was ‘Lucky Lucky’. Don’t ask me what the sentence means because I really don’t know. What I do know is that the game is pretty easy to play and the house odds are low at 2.62% depending on the scale used.


How To Play Lucky Lucky

I don’t think this blackjack variant can be played online yet but I think it’s only a matter of time before it can be played at our top USA online casinos. The game Lucky Lucky is played on a standard blackjack table with all of the casino’s rules in place. The only difference is that you have the option of wagering from $1 to $25per hand on the bonus spot. If you play Lucky Lucky the trick is to shoot for a two card hand of 19, 20 or 21. Why? Because this is what you get paid for silly.

In addition to the 19, 20 or 21, there are a few other hands to look out for, A suited 21 pays for 15 to 1 instead of the regular 3 to 1 which is pretty neat by the way. You can expect to see a hand like this about one in 84 hands. You’ll find that a two-card hand like 7-7, 6-7, 7-8 and 6-8 becomes more interesting since 7-7-7 and 6-7-8 are winning bonus hands as well! In layman’s terms it means that you want to play your hands differently to lock into those big pay offs.

When you have a 13, 14 or 15 up against the dealer’s up-card of 2 through 6, you usually stand. But, if you have a chance at make a high-paying Lucky Lucky hand, you might want to take a hit. In fact it’s worth shooting for the bonus.

Hand                        Paytable

Suited 7-7-7              200 to 1

Suited 6-7-8              100 to 1

Mixed 7-7-7               50 to 1

Mixed 6-7-8               30 to 1

Suited 21                  15 to 1

Regular 21                 3 to 1

Total of 20                  2 to 1

Total of 19                  2 to 1

To be sure of the above do check with your ‘friendly’ Pitboss, but your hand of 7-7-7 may only pay a bonus if you hit 7-7, assuming you don’t split.
