OVERVIEW OF PERFECT PAIRS
The game is a separate side-bet in common blackjack. The aim of this bet is to obtain a pair in the first two cards dealt for the main blackjack round. All bets for Perfect Pairs are accepted before the round commences.
Bets are collected from all players at the table, either through chips or cash. The dealer deals 2-cards per player from a 52-card deck, or a shoe of more than one deck. The dealer will finally deal himself two cards from the same deck or shoe.
The round starts with the croupier accepting bets from all players at the table. Players will need to first make a basic bet in blackjack and add a Perfect Pairs bet to it. Once complete, all players will be dealt 2 cards from a standard deck or a shoe of multiple decks. Pairs are notified to the dealer and are paid out immediately.
