Triple Shot Bonus Blackjack
By: John Colascione
Triple Shot Bonus Blackjack is a popular blackjack variation played in many casinos. The exciting feature of Triple Shot Blackjack is that the game has three components – War, Blackjack, and Poker. The game also features a side bet option – the “Hat Trick” bonus. The main aim of the game is to win each individual hand. War and Blackjack are played against the dealer, while Poker which is played against a specified paytable.
Triple Shot Bonus Blackjack begins with the box holder (blackjack player) placing his/her bets. The box holder has to bet of all the three components – War, Blackjack, and Poker – though all three bets do not have to be equal. The player can also place an optional bet – Hat Trick Bonus – if he/she wants. However, to win the Hat Trick Bonus, the player has to win all the other three components of the game.
War is the first component of Triple Shot Bonus Blackjack. The dealer deals one card for each player and one for himself. This hand is played similar to the War table game. The person – the player or the dealer – who has the higher value card wins the hand. Ties lose half of the original bet. After completing the War hand, the player can move to the next part of the game.
Blackjack is the next level in the Triple Shot Bonus game. Here also, the dealer deals a card to each player and one to himself. The player’s card is face-up while the dealer is a face down card. The rules of the game are similar to ordinary blackjack game except some slight exceptions:
* The box holder can only spilt Ace cards.
* The box holder automatically wins if he/she obtains six cards without busting (exceeding 21 points), unless the dealer has blackjack.
After completing the blackjack hand, the dealer can start the next level.
The last component of Triple Shot Bonus is the Poker. Poker is played against a paytable and not against a dealer.
Hat Trick Bonus
If the player wins all the three – War, Blackjack, and Poker – he/she wins the Hat Trick Bonus bet. Hat Trick Bonus pays 6:1.
