# How Much Is a Blackjack Worth?

In casino blackjack, the value of a blackjack (an ace with a ten-value card) is usually paid 3-2. This means that if you bet \$5 and are dealt a blackjack, you will be paid \$7.50. If the casino uses a 6-5 blackjack pay table, then a blackjack only pays \$6.

00. On some rare occasions, you may find a table that pays 2-1 on blackjacks; this is called a “natural.”.

The value of a blackjack depends on the number of decks in use and the house rules. If you are playing in a single deck game, the value of a blackjack is 4/13, or 30.77%. In a double deck game, the value of a blackjack is 4/26, or 15.

38%. The value goes down as the number of decks increases; in an eight deck game, the value of a blackjack is 4/104, or 3.85%.

The house edge in blackjack depends on the value of the blackjack. If you are playing in a single deck game with 3-2 payouts on blackjacks, the house edge is 0.15%.

If you are playing in an eight deck game with 6-5 payouts on blackjacks, the house edge is 1.39%.

A blackjack is only worth its full value if you are playing in a single deck game with 3-2 payouts on blackjacks. In all other games, the house has an edge over the player; therefore, a blackjack is not worth as much as it would be in a single deck game.
