# Texas Bullseye

## Introduction

Texas Bullseye is a blackjack variant played at a poker casino near Houston. It removes all the 10-point cards from each deck and replaces them with 13 Bullseye cards, each worth 10 points.

## Rules

Following are the rules.

1. Six decks
2. Decks have all standard 10-point cards removed and replaced with 13 Bullseye cards.
3. Bullseye cards are worth 10 points.
4. Blackjack pays 3-2
5. Dealer peeks for blackjack
6. Dealer hits soft 17
7. Double after split allowed
8. Surrender not allowed
9. Re-splitting aces not allowed
10. \$1.30 fee per hand to play.
11. Minimum bet = \$10, Maximum bet = \$200

## Strategy

The following is my basic strategy. It is based on an infinite-deck model.

Key:

• H = Hit
• S = Stand
• D = Double
• P = Split

## Analysis

I show before the \$1.30 fee to play is considered, the house edge is 1.78%.

Considering the \$1.30 fee to play, for a \$10 bet the house edge is 14.78% relative to the bet only and 13.08% relative to the bet plus fee.

Based on a \$200 bet, the house edge is 2.43% elative to the bet only and 2.41% relative to the bet plus fee.
