    Hello. I love Vegas and recently played a game at the Venetian called FREE BET
    POT OF GOLD.
    The dealer does NOT busy on 22. It was so fun and I saw lots of winners. When I tried to find put if the game was offered anywhere else I could only find free bet black jack. I am looking for the game that does offer free split but ALSO HAS A POT OF GOLD SIDE BET. Is this game anywhere else or is it only played like this at the VENETIAN and PALAZZO CASINOS. Thank you for your help I appreciate you taking the time to let me know.
    Thank you everyone in LasVegas for making this destination what it is!!!

    I found the BJ pot of gold at Flamingo (Margaritaville) and The Linq the last time I visited 2 weeks ago. I didn't play because I wasn't sure how it worked. But from what I got was that splits and double downs on 8,9,10,11 are free - and you get a bonus depending on the gold coins you get per hand. Don't know if this is correct. will need to look it up online and try it out next time.

    Rio had the pot of gold bet a month ago. The hand below would've paid 50 to 1 on that bet but I wasn't playing it at the time:

    Please correct the title..dealer doesn't "stand on 22". All bets push on a Dealer 22, BIG difference.

    I usually stay away from all variations of blackjack but Free Bet was my one detour. Something about getting those bets for free sucks me in!

    How come the double on your 9 (right most hand) wasn't free?

    It was - I was dealt two 2s so I split. The 2 of hearts got sent to the left with a free bet token and my original bet stayed with the 2 of diamonds. When that first 2 received a 7, I doubled for free which is represented by the free bet token under the 2 of diamonds.

    Ah I got it. The top-left most stack of red chips is your original bet. Everything else that's red is winnings. Tough to make heads or tails of it with that many winning free bets, but I suppose that's a good thing.

    All of the Caesars properties that have Free bet have the pot of gold side bet option. They also have it at Golden Gate and The D downtown. Downtown still pays 3:2 for blackjack on the Free Bet games.

    Freebet is one of my favorite Blackjack variations. I have played Pot of Gold side bet at Luxor and some local casinos. Maybe give Luxor a shot?
