Re: Match the Dealer (in Spanish21)

If what you are saying is correct, you have an enormous advantage over the house.
That is not hyperbole. I suspect that you have not explained your situation clearly.
Are you saying that the casino is adding 10 to 1 to the normal 3-1 on the unsuited
match for an actual payoff at odds of 13 to 1. This is a valuable promo. A perfect match
will occur at the rate of about one hand in 31 or about twice per hour. A \$200/hr. bonus
This is excellent. The variance on Perfect Match is not extreme, but you really should
expect to get between 1 and 3 per hr. but Zero to 4 will NOT be unusual at all.

If you bet\$10 per hand and \$10 on the MTD getting 62 hands per hour. You will be betting
\$1,240 per hr. On 1/2 of that you will lose 0.42% if you accept the Basic Strategy posted
on the WizardofOdds.com On the other half you will be earning a lot of money. The simple
algebraic solution via spreadsheet, or whatever, awaits someone's computation.

Recently I watched my new local casino plundered hard by players as
they paid
14-1 instead of the standard 12-1 on a suited match 24/7. A simple computation
via spreadsheet indicated that this casino mistake moved the MTD House Edge from
+3.00% to -4.65% The
7.65% 'swing' resulted in the casino taking out their four
(4) Spanish21 tables as they were getting pounded by amateurs betting \$500 X 2
on the game, that they played poorly, with a matching \$500 on the MTD side-bet.

If a casino paid 13 to 1 that would alter the House Edge from ...
+2.99% to -0.83%
A big swing of
3.86% Not exactly a gold mine, as the common ploppy play of the game
itself, yields a House Edge of roughly 3.5% (by my estimate), which still has the players subject
to a significant overall disadvantage of roughly 2.5% ~ so the house's vaults will not
be as subject to the ravenous predations
of ploppies as you may have thought. .......L.O.L.

Please allow me to clarify the terms of this promo. Any suited match pays 13-1 but a suited A, K, Q pays an EXTRA \$100 bonus for a \$10 bet. All other non-suited MTD pays 3-1 and no bonus. The minimum bet for the hand itself is \$10.

This falsehood was told to employees, who in turn promulgated the lie to
customers inquiring as to why the popular Spanish21 tables were removed.
I have much better 'intel' on this issue than does Three.

You did not bother to apologize for this irritatingly egregious error.
If the bonus is applied only to a perfect match with 3 of the 12
ranks the value is lessened by 75%.

After the start of the promo, they had a rule change excluding the other denominations from the mix.
