But, what are we hiding under this mysterious name of “Lucky Ladies”? That is what we are going to answer right now!


Presentation of the Blackjack with “lucky Ladies”


Instead of what you could think, this is not a single game but simply a sidebet proposed during a round of traditional Blackjack with 6 decks of cards.


On a classic table, added to the seven standard boxes designed for receiving the main bets engaged by the players, you will have a supplementary space (small round in the top right hand-corner) as this:


It is in this box that the players will have the possibility to engage their additional bet called “Lucky Ladies”.


Rules of the Blackjack with Lucky ladies



1. The Lucky Ladies bet is made before the distribution of cards but after your “classic” main bet.

2. After all players’ bets are recorded (you have no obligation to bet on this option), the dealer distributes the cards.

3. An observation is done at this moment by the croupier, in order to see if the players who made the additional bet have a 20 points hand.

4. If not, the croupier picks the bet engaged. If yes, he makes the payment of a bonus according to what you got to obtain these 20 points. The paytable will be necessarily posted at your table, indicating the price repartition as such:

Winning Combinations Winnings
