# Mega Match

## Introduction

The Mega Match is a side bet available in the Side Bet Blackjack game by Pala Interactive, a provider of software to Internet casinos. It is a side bet that wins if the player's initial two cards are suited, more for a suited king-queen, and even more if the dealer also has a suited king-queen. It would be easy to make comparisons to the Royal Match.

## Rules

Following are the rules for the Mega Match side bet. A "Mega Match" is defined as a suited king and queen.

1. If the player's initial two cards are suited, other than a Mega Match, then the Mega Match bet shall pay 2 to 1.
2. If the player has a Mega Match and the dealer does not, then the Mega Match bet shall pay 50 to 1.
3. If both the player and dealer have a Mega Match, then the Mega Match bet shall pay 5,000 to 1.
