whats the house edge in blackjack, like .5%?

so wagering 450,000$ would mean that your ev is -$2,250. the prize package claims to be worth $5800 so right now playing blackjack is +ev. 10 days left im sure 21st place will be surprassed but it would have to reach over a million to be -ev.

Got to play that BJ NOW you degenerates. Only chance you got to play your favorite game AND be +EV.

This is only true if their valuation of the prize package matches yours and this is unlikely. I definitely would not pay $2k to miss work to be trapped on a boat with the kind of people who would be winning a blackjack wagering contest.

What's the point of the partial account names? They want to keep the winners' identities sort of secret but not really?

bobbyi,

"This is only true if their valuation of the prize package matches yours and this is unlikely. I definitely would not pay $2k to miss work to be trapped on a boat with the kind of people who would be winning a blackjack wagering contest. "

How much would you pay? 3k? 4k? I think it's tough to justify valuing it at much more than that, no matter how crazy fun these people are likely to be.
