What Are Suited Trips In Blackjack? (21+3 Side Bet)

You might encounter suited trips in the course of playing blackjack online. They’re part of the 21+3 side bet, an exciting addition to the card game

If you’re unsure as to what it is and how it works, fret not, we’ve got you covered. We’ll answer ‘What are suited trips in blackjack?’, the rules, and how to play the 21+3 side bet by the end of this article.

What Are Suited Trips In Blackjack? (21+3 Side Bet)

The 21+3 side bet considers three cards: the two dealt to the player plus the dealer’s face-up card. This side bet is on whether the 3 cards will form a poker hand, such as a flush or a straight.

The suited trips bet is the most difficult 21+3 bet to win. All 3 cards must be identical cards, i.e. the same suit and rank. For example, all 3 cards are the 7 of clubs.

Suited trips is a short-hand way of saying suited triples or suited three-of-a-kind.

Players place all bets before the cards are dealt; this includes any side bets. Note that the game would need to be played with enough decks of cards for the bet to be possible - you can’t have 3 of the exact same card in a single deck of cards.

The prize may vary from casino to casino. However, the general payout is 100:1 for a winning suited trips bet.

How To Play 21+3 In Blackjack

Aside from the suited trips, the 21+3 side bet can also be made on the following three-card poker hands:

  • Flush: Requires 3 cards in the same suit.
  • Straight: 3 cards in consecutive values, e.g. 3, 4, 5. Aces can also be high or low.
  • Three-of-a-kind: 3 cards of the same rank.
  • Straight flush: 3 cards of consecutive values in the same suit.

You win if your cards combine with the dealer’s up card creating a 3-card combination of one of them. However, if they don’t match, you lose your side bet stake.

The potential win amount varies depending on which three-card hand you get.

21+3 Blackjack Odds

The odds for each side bet vary depending on a given online casino. However, the general payouts are as follows:

  • Flush: A combination of 3 cards of the same suit, e.g., a J, 4 and 2 of clubs. Pays out at 5:1.
  • Straight: 3 cards in consecutive values such as 3, 4 and 5 which can be mixed suits. Pays out at 10:1
  • Three-of-a-Kind: A Three-of-a-Kind hand has 3 same-value cards regardless of suit - e.g. 8 of hearts, 8 of clubs, and 8 of spades. Pays out at 30:1.
  • Straight Flush: A straight flush requires 3 same suit cards of consecutive values - e.g. 8, 9 and 10 of spades. Pays out at 40:1.
  • Suited Three of a Kind: 3 cards of the same suit and denomination - e.g. all 3 cards are the 5 of clubs. Pays out at 100:1.
