What Counts Toward Wager Requirements in Blackjack?

I'm working on a number of bonuses playing blackjack. Blackjack nowdays, of course, are either not counted toward bonuses anymore or have very high wagering requirements.

So, in general, what do casinos count toward blackjack wagering requirements? Does the whole double down/split wager count or only the original wager? How about the natural Blackjack? Does the wager made in a push-outcome count?

Every casino I've seen counts all your wagers including splits/doubles. Whether you win/lose/push the hand doesn't matter. The 3:2 BJ payoff counts as 1 unit wagered, not 3/2 of that unit.

Simple rule of thumb is that a "wager" consists of any fund "at risk". Doubling down and splitting create additional at-risk funds, and hence count as wagers. Taking even money on blackjack is also considered a wager - in effect it's a separate bet - at least in Cyberlogic casinos.

BTW - Cyberlogic casinos offer an up-to-the-minute log of your wagers, which you can cut-and-paste to find your current month's total.

And if you surrender - the whole original bet will count towards the wagering requirement, rather than just half. (at least at places I know of)
