Blackjack Late Surrender
Rules of Play
What is Late Surrender?
Late Surrender on Blackjack is the option as a player to save half (½) their original wager by throwing in their hand; thus forfeiting the other half (½) of their original bet. Late Surrender only applies to blackjack, Perfect Pairs and Lucky Lucky games only.
When can the player use the Late Surrender option?
Only on the first two cards of the player’s hand on any total and against any dealer up card once the dealer has determined that he/she does not have a natural 21 (blackjack).
What is the dealing procedure?
The procedure will be the same as surrender on Spanish 21, when it is the player’s turn to act on their first two cards the player may choose to forfeit half (½) the original blackjack wager. When a player chooses to surrender, the dealer will take half (½) the player’s bet and the cards, returning the other half (½) back to the player; this terminates the player’s interest in the hand. The player can direct their decision to the dealer verbally or using a hand signal (i.e. scratching the table), there must be a clear understanding of the player’s decision by the dealer before proceeding.
Are bonus bets affected?
All bonus bets are treated as a separate wager and their procedure and order of procedure remains the same. If a player surrenders their hand on Super 7’s the hand is no longer eligible for any additional bonus payout.
