Fortunes Blackjack is a side bet based on the player's initial two cards and the dealer's up card. Any total of 19 to 21 will win, with the amount depending on the exact total and composition. If it sounds familiar, it is the same as the Lucky Lucky. The only changes are the name and the pay table.
I first saw the bet at the Red Rock casino in Las Vegas on October 24, 2021.
- Cards are scored as in blackjack. Aces can be 1 or 11.
- Wins are based on the player's initial two cards and the dealer's up card.
- The only known pay table to me is shown below.
- Pays are on a "to one" basis.
