§ 673a.9. Surrender.

 (a)  After the first two cards are dealt to the player, the player may elect to discontinue play on his hand for that round by surrendering 1/2 of his wager. All decisions to surrender shall be made prior to the player indicating whether he wishes to double down as permitted under §  673a.10 (relating to double down), split pairs as permitted under §  673a.11 (relating to splitting pairs), stand or draw. If the first card dealt to the dealer:

   (1)  Is not an ace or 10 value card, the dealer shall immediately collect 1/2 of the wager and return 1/2 to the player.

   (2)  Is an ace or 10 value card, the dealer will place the player’s wager on top of the player’s cards. After the Insurance Wager is offered and the card reader device is utilized, the hand will be settled by immediately collecting the entire wager if the dealer has Blackjack or collecting 1/2 of the wager and returning 1/2 of the wager to the player if the dealer does not have Blackjack.

 (b)  If the player has made an Insurance Wager and then elects to surrender, each wager will be settled separately in accordance with subsection (a) and §  673a.8 (relating to Insurance Wager).
