New Side Bet Fit for a King
A new side bet at Turning Stone Resort Casino gives thrill-seeking blackjack players a brand-new way to win big on a small wager.
The bet, “King’s Bounty,” offers multiple ways to win—all depending on the hand after an initial deal.
Though the bet name references kings, players collect for every 20 they receive on their two cards that consist of any 10s or Face Cards.
There is a wide variety of payouts ranging from 4:1 up to 1,000:1. This means that if a player gets a pair of kings or spades against a dealer blackjack, that player can turn $1 into $1,000, $5 into $5,000, $15 into $15,000, and so on.
According to the pay table, any unsuited 20 pays 4:1; off-suited kings are 6:1; suited queens, jacks, or 10s pay out at 20:1; and suited kings are 30:1.
To play King’s Bounty, guests place a separate wager in the circle to the right of their bet. Players can bet anywhere from $1 to $100 on each hand.
Guy Renzi, vice president of gaming operations, said guests love the new wager because it delivers the potential for high reward. He adds that the game itself reflects Turning Stone’s commitment to providing players with the latest and greatest wagering options to make the casino experience unforgettable.
“We’re always trying to keep it interesting,” Guy said. “That’s something we’re really good at.”
The new bet, which compliments other blackjack side bets with similar pay structures, went live on the casino floor recently and saw heavy action in its first few weeks. Guy noted that many Turning Stone players seem to gravitate toward side bets. Now there’s another one to add to the mix.
