How the 21+3 Blackjack Side Bet Works

The 21+3 side bet is a blackjack wager that aims to create a three-card poker hand. The bet is a popular blackjack variation that can be found in other games and is generally popular because it offers some attractive odds for simply making a winning poker hand.

The Different Combinations of odds and payouts are as follows:

  • Suited Three of a Kind: This hand is three cards of the same value/face card and the same suit. It has 0.0002 odds with a whopping payout of 100:1.
  • Straight Flush: Three cards of consecutive value that share the same suit. It has 0.002 odds and has a payout of 40:1.
  • Three of a Kind: Three-of-a-kind cards of the same value/face. 0.005 odds with a decent 30:1 payout.

If you’re wondering how to get into the game, luckily, Blackjack Sidebets 21+3 and Perfect Pairs is easy to learn. The game plays like a standard game of blackjack on a six-deck shoe.

At the beginning of a game, players place their bets as well as have the option to place their side bets. There is a 3.7% house edge, and once the blackjack side bet placements are done, the dealer will then deal the initial cards. The dealer has one card face down and one face up, while a player’s two initial cards are face up. A winning hand for a side bet is done when a player creates a three-card hand. 

The rest of the game plays out like regular blackjack, and winning hands are decided according to standard blackjack.

The Perfect Pairs Side Bet

On top of the 21+3 blackjack side bet, there is the Perfect Pairs side bet. This side bet offers different odds and is a pretty straightforward side bet to make. 

Before the game starts, players will be prompted to place their bets and side bets at designated spots on the table. The Perfect Pairs side bet is done when a player gets their initial two cards. The player wins if their cards form a pair. This side wager payout depends on what the pair is such as if it is the same suit, same color, or same value.
