How To Play
Blackjack pros will know their way around this game instantly, and beginners will easily get to grips with it! All you have to do to place your bet is tap the chip selection arrows to choose the chip size you want to bet, and then tap the betting area on the table to place your bet. You can increase your bet by one chip each time by tapping the chip pile, and you can clear your bets by clicking CLEAR BETS. Once you’re happy, you’re ready to get your golden Blackjack show on the road…
Your mission is to beat the dealer by getting a higher value hand without exceeding 21. If the dealer’s hand goes bust, you’ll win. The dealer will be dealt 2 cards, one face-up, and you’ll be dealt 2 cards, both face-up. Blackjack is a combination of an Ace and a card with a value of 10. All face cards have a value of 10, whilst Aces can have a value of either 1 or 11. Blackjack is the strongest hand and automatically stands. It cannot be beaten; it can only be matched. If you choose to HIT, you’ll be dealt one card, and if you STAND you’ll end the game. You and the dealer can draw up to nine additional cards to make a hand of eleven cards, but only if the value does not exceed 21. Got it?

If you think your hand has what it takes to beat the dealer with the next card drawn you can double your bet – and hopefully double your win! You can only double down on your first two cards if they have a value of 9, 10 or 11. This is called a hard hand, and this hand does not contain an Ace, unless the Ace has a value of 1, not 11. A double down bet is equal to your regular bet amount, and you’ll be dealt 1 extra card. Be careful, though – you can’t double down after a split! So make your decisions wisely in your battle against the dealer…
This is where you can split and play 2 hands! However, you can only split two cards that have the same denomination. When you split, a bet that is equal to your regular bet is placed on the second hand. You’ll then be dealt a new card to each hand. Beware – if you split a pair of Aces and draw a card with a value of 10, this is not Blackjack, it has a value of 21. This also applies to splitting cards with a value of 10 and then drawing an Ace. You can only split once per game, so choose your moment wisely and may luck be on your side!
If you reckon the dealer could get Blackjack (if his first card is an Ace this means he’s got a good chance), you can take out an insurance bet. An insurance bet is worth half of your regular bet amount. Insurance bet wins or losses are independent from your regular bet. Also, your insurance bet only covers your original hand, it doesn’t cover any second hands on a split or a double down. If the dealer doesn’t get Blackjack, the insurance bet is removed from the table and deducted from your credit balance. If the dealer does get Blackjack, the insurance bet pays out at odds of 2:1. So, do you think you have what it takes to beat the dealer and get your hands on those golden Blackjack wins? Play now to find out!
