58 Pa. Code § 685a.8. Insurance Wager.

§ 685a.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 10, jack, queen or king.

 (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 Bet Wager. A player may wager an amount in excess of 1/2 of the initial Bet Wager to the next unit that can be wagered in chips, when, because of the limitation of the value of chip denominations, half the initial Bet Wager cannot be bet. Insurance Wagers shall be placed prior to the dealer inserting his hole card into the Masque Card Reader device.

 (c)  Winning Insurance Wagers shall be paid in accordance with the payout odds in §  685a.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 Masque Card Reader device and determines that he does not have a Blackjack and before he draws any additional cards.
