I could not find a thread on how casinos handle irregularities so I thought I would start one.  In a vast majority of the incidents I can remember all players were given the option to play their hand as though the irregularity had not occurred (and win, lose, or push depending on the outcome) or to abandon their hand and have their bet returned.  I do remember a couple exceptions, however.

This one occurred maybe 10 years ago at a Native American joint near Pendleton, OR.  Playing third base and looking at a dealer 8 with hard 16 I scratched for a hit, but instead the dealer started to turn over her hole card as if to complete her hand.  Of course I called time out, but then noticed that the dealer’s hole card was another 8.  The pit suit came over and had the dealer turn her hole card face up for all to see, then gave me the option to hit or stand even though I admitted I had asked for a hit originally.  I opted to stand—and the dealer pulled a 3. shut eye

This one occurred at my local haunt just two days ago.  I was on first base playing two hands.  Looking at a dealer 5 I doubled down on 9 on my first hand, then stood on a stiff on my second hand.  The only other player at the table stood, also on a stiff as it turns out.  The dealer went to complete his hand and discovered he had neglected to give himself a hole card.  A pit suit came over and had the dealer deal his hole card, then told us players that the hands we had tucked could not lose (i.e. that a loss would be a push).  I, however, was allowed to examine the card I had been dealt on my first hand and was given the option to play the hand as though I had not doubled down (i.e. take back my additional bet and play the hand as though I had only hit originally) or to accept the double down with only the initial bet at risk (i.e. the additional bet would win or push only).  Perhaps mistakenly, I opted to go for the gusto—and the dealer made a hand. blank stare

Yes! I agree,this one occurred at my local haunt just two days ago.  I was on first base playing two hands.  Looking at a dealer 5 I doubled down on 9 on my first hand, then stood on a stiff on my second hand.  The only other player at the table stood, also on a stiff as it turns out.  The dealer went to complete his hand and discovered he had neglected to give himself a hole card.
