58 Pa. Code § 672a.8. Insurance Wager.

§ 672a.8. Insurance Wager.

 (a)  If the first card dealt to the dealer is an ace, each player may make an Insurance Wager which shall win if the dealer’s hole card is a king, queen, jack or 10.

 (b)  An Insurance Wager may be made by placing a value chip on the insurance line of the layout in an amount not more than 1/2 of the player’s initial Blackjack Wager. A player may wager an amount in excess of 1/2 of the initial Blackjack Wager to the next unit that can be wagered in chips when, because of the limitation of the value of chip denominations, 1/2 the initial Blackjack Wager cannot be bet. Insurance Wagers shall be placed prior to the dealer inserting his hole card into the card reader device.

 (c)  Winning Insurance Wagers shall be paid in accordance with the payout odds in §  672a.11(b) (relating to payout odds).

 (d)  Losing Insurance Wagers shall be collected by the dealer immediately after the dealer inserts his hole card into the card reader device and determines that he does not have a Blackjack and before he draws any additional cards.

 (e)  Notwithstanding the requirements of subsections (a)—(d), if selected in its Rules Submission under §  601a.2 (relating to table games Rules Submissions), a certificate holder may offer a player who has Blackjack the option to be paid even money on the Blackjack Wager instead of making an Insurance Wager. If the player elects to be paid even money, the dealer shall pay out the Blackjack Wager at odds of 1 to 1 and remove the player’s cards provided that if the player also placed a Push 22 Wager, the dealer shall tuck the player’s cards under the player’s Push 22 Wager until it is resolved in accordance with §  672a.7(n) (relating to procedure for dealing the cards; completion of each round of play).
