The official rule of insurance in blackjack is it is a side bet. That means if it is placed even if the hand was to bust the whole cards of the dealer must be shown. For a 100M bet a 50M insurance can be pricey if not fatal. That being the case imagine paying for insurance on a hand you split and bust out and not see where your insurance went to then paying it on the next one and not folding to it showing blackjack and paying out insurance breaking you even for the hand but still leaving you down 150 from the one before when it should have left you even on both.
If these rules were to change that insurance is a side bet and the rules of blackjack were properly addressed I would like a detailed history of casino records to be released to the public showing you when you have placed insurance and busted and what cards they had. For I have busted atleast 20 times while splitting on 100M dollar hands and winning the second one due to my insurance bet paying when. thats 150M I did not get back due to my side bet being considered with my original bet. 150M times 20 is 3B which is amounts lost due to these unofficial rules of blackjack.
