Safe Bet for Blackjack
The Safe Bet is a side bet available in the Jackpot blackjack game by Dragonfish, a provider of software to Internet casinos. The idea is simple, the bet pays 3 to 2 if the player's first two cards are a hard total of 12 to 16 and composed of two different ranks.
This side bet is based on the player's initial two cards. It pays 3 to 2 if the player has a "stiff" hand, meaning a total of 12 to 16 with no aces and can't be split.
In the game I found it by Dragonfish, four decks are used.
The following table shows my analysis of Safe Bet, assuming four decks. The lower right cell shows a house edge of 7.84%.

The next pay table shows the house edge only for various number of decks.
