How to Use the Royal Match Side Bet

September 12, 2023

In blackjack, side bets are additional wagers that players can place on certain events happening within a standard game.

There are several common blackjack side bets that you may have already come across. These include Perfect Pairs, 21+3, Insurance, and Over/Under 13. Another one you may have seen is the Royal Match side bet.

You will find the Royal Match side bet in several blackjack variants. It is offered before the round begins and is entirely independent of the main game. Therefore, you can win a round and lose a side bet or win a side bet but lose a round.

The Royal Match side bet pays out if you land on two suited cards, with two different permutations. Any two suited cards will payout at 5:2, while getting a Kind-Queen suited pair pays out at 25:1.
