6 to 5 Blackjack Payout Chart

6 to 5 describes the odds the player receives when they get a blackjack on select tables.

Unfortunately, 6 to 5 pays less than 3 to 2 for exactly the same thing and this is the reason why 6 to 5 is considered bad for the players. For example, if you have a $25 wager and you get a blackjack, then on a 3 to 2 table you would get paid $37.50, however on a 6 to 5 table you would only get paid $30 for the same hand. You would lose $7.50 because you were sitting on a 6 to 5 table versus a 3 to 2 table.

You’ll be able to tell what type of table you’re sitting on due to the markings on the felt layout or the signs next to the table min. max. sign. If you don’t see the odds anywhere then you can always ask your dealer if blackjacks pay 3 to 2 or 6 to 5 before sitting down at a table. If you are unhappy about being paid less for a blackjack, then the only way players can communicate that to the casino is if they never play a 6 to 5 game. If the game isn’t making any money, then the casino will eventually take it out.

Now for the casino dealer’s part of this answer. Paying a 6 to 5 payout is easier than you think. Instead of focusing on the dollar amount and the odds, which can confuse anyone, focus on the units. Memorize the payouts for the four most commonly used units. If the player has a $5 blackjack, then pay him even money plus $1. Every $5 gets paid an extra $1 or in other words a $5 blackjack gets paid $6. A $25 chip will get paid even money plus $5, also known as $30 and a $100 chip will get paid even money plus $20 or a total of $120. $1 chips are easier since breakage applies. Since the casino can’t pay 6 to 5 on a $1, all $1 wagers are paid even money. If you pay to the units instead of the dollar amount, you’ll have a lot easier time figuring out the payoffs. For example, if the player has a $45 blackjack that pays 6 to 5, what do you do? Take a deep breath and remember to pay in units. So first we’ll pay the bet even money. Second, we’ll break down this bet and pay the units the bonus amount. A $25 chip pays $5 and we know four $5 chips will pay $4 so we add an additional $9 to the payout and we just successfully paid a 6 to 5 blackjack bet with very little effort.
