The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning wager, meaning that the risks will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your wager goes instantaneously to the house. After the wager comes the face off. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, with a sum equal to the initial wager. If the dealer has a hand with ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand defeats the dealer’s hand. The bank pays out chips equal to your original bet and set expectations on your call bet.
