I do not see information here in the rules about the player choosing to double down when receiving a natural. It is my understanding that this is allowed by casino rules. And this makes some of the statements in the article slightly inaccurate because they assume there is no player decision possible when you receive a natural. Should I add this information?

Many, if not most, casinos don't allow this. There's no info on how many as it's never a correct play outside of tournament blackjack and no one has looked into it. I've only done this once, over 30 years ago. Probably not worth mentioning. O3000 (talk) 20:17, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
In the section Rules of play at casinos it says that Wins are paid out at 1:1. Since the player is receiving 2 dollars for every one dollar bet then shouldn't it be a ratio of 2:1? Tellurium128 (talk) 01:49, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
It's 2 for one or 1:1. You only win one. They mean the same. O3000 (talk) 02:01, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
It get what your saying, but in the section Rule variations and effects on house edge - Altered payout for a winning blackjack, it says that paying 1:1 for blackjack is a way to increase the house edge. This is clearly different to the ratio of 1:1 mentioned earlier so there is inconsistency. Tellurium128 (talk) 02:18, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Generally, hands pay 1:1. BJ is supposed to pay 3:2. Although, numerous casinos now pay 6:5 -- which is highway robbery, IMHO. Paying 1:1 for a BJ without a balancing rule would certainly increase the house edge -- enormously. O3000 (talk) 02:50, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
