What are the pros and cons?

This may not be accurate but I perceive it as a disadvantage. It feels like there is more chances to bust on a given hand the more hands you play against the dealers one hand. Instead, I will bet twice as much per hand and play just one hand.

This may not be technically correct. It's just feels better to me.

And you feel BJs coming, too?

That's of course BS. The HA is the same multihand.
The only interesting thing is, if it has a lower variance than to wager the same amount on one hand or on more hands and if you could gain a higher avg$/h
However, the EV of a bonus stays the same.

No, this is not accurate at all.

It 's hard to answer your question. I am not sure what you mean. So, what it is then? Multihand Js or Multimouth BJs?

I wondered if it would lower variance. Especially because at Intercasino, the minimum wager is $2 while at multihanded blackjack, you can wager $1 a hand. I was thinking that I could play more hands, like 3, and perhaps get it done in about the same time as single handed at $2, and have lower variance.

Anymore thoughts?

OK, I was actually just reading something about this yesterday. From my understanding, betting multiple hands has the same variance as betting 1.5x the amount of one bet on one hand. So betting $1 on two hands has the same variance as betting $1.50 on one hand.
