Perfect Pairs




A perfect side bet for Blackjack!


Perfect Pairs is both fast and easy to play. It has great player appeal and significantly boosts game turnover without affecting playing strategy. It has been proven to increase both cash drop and win/hold percentages and is extremely popular with players. It is a great enhancement to any Blackjack game.


A Perfect Pairs bet wins if the first two cards dealt to a player’s blackjack hand are a pair and it loses if they are not a pair. Perfect Pairs bets are made prior to any cards being dealt and must be supported by a regular Blackjack bet on the same betting box. There are three different types of pairs: a “Mixed Pair”, a “Coloured Pair” and a “Perfect Pair” and the payout odds vary accordingly. 








Benefits of Perfect Pairs


Perfect Pairs is a simple side bet that's easy to understand because it doesn't change the main game rules. This means that, not only do players and Dealers adapt to the game quickly, but also, because all wagers are acted on by the Dealer at the completion of the initial deal, the player's Blackjack strategy remains unaffected. 


Perfect Pairs can be played on any standard Blackjack table and is an exciting additional bet for players because it generates a high frequency win rate. In addition, players are not limited to a flat wager and can bet up to the table’s side bet max, allowing the potential for a higher game turnover and improved revenues.


Why It Works


Most side bets offer high payout odds but restrict players to a small flat bet, which limits table turnover per round of play. Perfect Pairs breaks this mould and allows players to have some serious side play on a bet with a high frequency win rate. Consequently, significant turnover is generated on Perfect Pairs, which produces incremental revenue that flows through to the bottom line. The surge in uptake of Perfect Pairs by casinos in Australia & New Zealand is proof that this side bet is a great addition to any casino!
