Blackjack Payouts 3:2 vs 6:5

Blackjack Pays 3 to 2

When you’re learning how to deal blackjack at a Las Vegas dealing school, you will definitely need to know your standard blackjack payouts.  Traditionally blackjack pays 3:2 (“time and a half”).

Note that a bet of $0.50 should pay $0.75 in the event of a blackjack. However, the casino does not keep quarters on the game, so when a player receives blackjack with a 50-cent piece on the bet, the house rounds down. Therefore, $0.50 pays even money.

Study the chart below to get a grasp on standard 3 to 2 blackjack payouts. Most payouts are easy to calculate on the spot. Pay careful attention to the following common bets that are more tricky: $2.50, $35, $45, and $75. With these bets, it is easier to simply commit them to memory.

Blackjack Pays 6 to 5

6:5 is fairly common for single deck or double deck blackjack games to pay 6:5 rather than 3:2. This means that every $5 bet receives $6. If the bet is not in an even unit of five, remember to round in the house’s favor.

Here are the basics of 6 to 5 Blackjack:

  • - 1 white chip is paid 1 white chip
  • - 1 red chip is paid 1 red chip and 1 white chip
  • - 1 green chip is paid 1 green chip and1 red chip
  • - 1 black chip is paid 1 black chip and 4 red chips

6:5 is much easier to visualize than to memorize payouts, but the chart below shows a few payouts to note.
