    Available Software to Sim a Dealer Push on 22

    Is there any publicly available software that would allow me to sim a push when the dealer gets a 22?

    A local casino recently introduced a blackjack variant called Free Bet Blackjack (which is apparently invented by the same guy who invented BJSwitch.) The impact on doubling would be huge, I think.

    The push on 22 intuitively looks awful, but of course there are some other changes that appeal to the players.

    Here is a discussion:

    CVData has the ability internally. I haven't added the option to the user interface as every game I've seen this in is miserable.

    There have been posts that suggest push 22 is worth something like 6.91%.

    Okay,

    Unless I see some other evidence, I won't pursue this.

    Appreciate the input.

    It's gonna be a shitty game to count because the house edge is over 1% to begin with, and free doubling probably makes low cards less bad than they are in regular blackjack, so the EORs will be smaller.
