Suit 'Em Up

Introduction

I noticed Suit 'Em Up at the Red Rock casino in Las Vegas on April 19, 2013. It was on a double-deck table on what I refer to ask pay table 1 below. Years later, I saw another pay table at an Internet casino using Felt Gaming software. That game used six decks and pay table 2 below.

As long as the player's first two cards are suited he wins, with wins depending on what the ranks are. I am aware of two pay tables, as shown below.

Pay Tables

Event Pay Table 1 Pay Table 2
Suited aces 60 to 1 50 to 1
Suited blackjack 10 to 1 10 to 1
Suited pair 5 to 1 5 to 1
Suited 11 3 to 1 3 to 1
Any other suited 2 to 1 2 to 1

Analysis — Pay Table 1



The following return table is for pay table 1 and two decks. The lower right cell shows a house edge of 9.41%.
