• I was playing the Hit or Stand game today when I was dealt an A/3 against a dealer 3. I hit, and received a 4, giving me a soft 18. I know that with an A/7 against a 3-6 you are supposed to double, but I was under the impression that with a 3-card soft 18 (obviously, doubling would no longer be permitted), you would stand against anything but a 9, 10, or ace. So I stood, and the game told me I should have hit. Am I missing something, or is this a mistake?
  • If you where playing in difficult mode maybe you didn't click the stand button and your time expired. I got a 3 card 18 and hit stand against a 4 and it saif that I was correct. Doubling on soft aces is difficult with the game because it will say that some aces have no general rule on weather to hit or double.

    It is a bug!!!
  • I encountered this situation yet again and can definitely confirm that I did not run out of time and that it is a bug.
  • It's a known bug and has been for years.
  • The Native American Casinos here in Arizona use 7 and 8 deck shoes for the most part. In reading about the "Magnificant 7" hands in the above book, I note that everything is based on a 6 deck shoe.

    Are there any conversion tables available.....or should one just follow the book as written even with a 7 or 8 deck shoe? Thanks.....
  • The soft 18 bug and the push dealer's natural with mutli card 21 are bugs kept in the game to make people to inquire and register this site.
