How Perfect Pairs Work In Blackjack

Last time, we made an overview of blackjack games that are found in BoVegas. One of them is called Perfect Pairs, so we decided to explore further this type of blackjack and see how you can get the best possible outcome while playing it.

The first thing you need to understand about Perfect Pairs is that it’s mostly identical to the traditional type of blackjack, as the majority of the rules are completely the same.

So basically, you get two cards, as well as the dealer. Once you receive them, you have the option to hit, stand, double down, and more. The busting rules are also the same.

A Little Different

However, there’s one small addition to the rules that make Perfect Pairs different from the standard version of USA online blackjack. There’s a side bet, and it’s actually the bet itself that is often referred to as “perfect pairs.”

What you should take into account is that this side bet is not related to your main bet in any way. In other words, you can win the main bet and lose the side bet, and vice versa. Naturally, you can lose both, or even win both, if you’re extremely lucky.

Basically, you are betting your money that you’re going to get a pair in your next hand. However, depending on the strength of your pair, the payout of the side bet may change a bit.

For example, if you get a pair that doesn’t have a matching suit of matching color, the payout will be 5 to 1. In other words, if you bet $10, you’ll win $50 as a reward.

If, on the other hand, the pair has a matching color as well, the payout goes up to 10 to 1.

Finally, if the pair matches in both color and suit (which is considered a perfect pair in this case), then the payout is 30 to 1.

So, should you make this bet? Well, the majority of blackjack experts agree that any side bet in this game will negatively affect the odds and increase the house edge. According to them, the low house edge is actually the reason why this type of bet is introduced.

Therefore, if you want to stick to the best strategy while playing instant play blackjack casinos, you should avoid making this bet. However, if you feel lucky and want to involve a little risk, you are free to make this bet. Make sure not to get carried away with a perfect pairs bet, as it could negatively impact your overall blackjack performance.
