How to play
This super fun casino game is really simple to play. Firstly, select your chip value from the chip selector at the bottom of the screen. Next, click on the desired main blackjack bet position to place your bet. You can play up to three hands at once on tablet and desktop by placing your bet on any one, two or all three of these bet positions. However, you can only play one hand at a time on mobile. You can create your bet with multiple chip values by selecting different chip values in the chip selector and then pressing/clicking again on the bet position. If you make a mistake at any point whilst placing your bets, just click UNDO. You can keep clicking this multiple times to remove all of your bets if you need to!
When you've placed your main bet, the Lucky Ladies will come calling! They'll glow white, inviting you to click your desired chip value from the chip selector and then click on the side bet position to place your bet. When you're happy with the bets you've placed, hit DEAL to get your blackjack party started! Once you've pressed deal, the cards will be dealt and your 2 cards will be evaluated against the Lucky Ladies pay table. All side bets are then settled from left to right. The Lucky Ladies side bet wins if the first two cards dealt to your hand make a combined total of 20 or feature a Queen.
You can check the details of all pays by checking the Pay Table.
If you click the SPEED PAY button, you will immediately be paid any winnings and you'll be taken back to the main blackjack part of the game.
Once your side bet has been settled, you're ready to play your first hand of Blackjack! The aim is to beat the dealer with a hand value total that is higher than that of the dealer's but without going over 21. When you're ready to play your blackjack hand the following actions will take place:
Blackjack - If your first two cards dealt total 21, this is called Blackjack and you will win 3-2 on your blackjack bet unless the dealer also has blackjack. If the dealer doesn't have blackjack then your blackjack bet will be settled automatically. However, if the dealer DOES also have blackjack then your bet will be pushed.
Insurance - if the dealer's face up card is an Ace you will have the option to make an insurance bet, with the following choices:
- No: the insurance bet will be dismissed for the active hand (highlighted blue) and it will then ask you the same question for your next hand(s)
- No to all: the insurance bet will be dismissed for all of your hands and then the dealer will check for Blackjack
- Yes: An insurance bet of a fixed amount equal to 50% of your original blackjack bet will be placed on the active hand (highlighted blue)
- Yes to all: An insurance bet of a fixed amount equal to 50% of your original blackjack bet will be placed on all of your blackjack hands
If the dealer does get Blackjack, you will win the Insurance bet regardless of who wins the game, even if you go bust. If the dealer doesn't get Blackjack, you lose the Insurance bet and the stake is removed from the table. Your original bet stands until you win or go bust.
If your first two cards have a combined value of 9, 10 or 11 then you will be offered the chance to ‘Double Down'. This means you can double your initial Blackjack bet and receive just one additional card. If you choose to Double Down, your stake for the current hand will be doubled and you will be dealt one more card only.
HIT or STAND
If you do not get Blackjack and if you are not offered Insurance or Double Down options, then normal game play continues and you'll be given the choice to HIT or STAND. If you choose to HIT, you'll be given one additional card to add to the total value of your hand. If the new total is still less than 21 you will be asked to HIT or STAND again. You will be able to continue to HIT until you either reach a total of 21 or go BUST.
If you choose to STAND then no additional cards are dealt and you move onto the next hand (from your right to left).
Once you have played all of your hands it's the dealer's turn. The dealer must hit on any total score below 17 and must STAND on 17 or higher (including soft 17 made up of a 6 and an Ace).
Once the dealer's turn is over, your blackjack hands are settled from right to left. If your hand total is greater than that of the dealer's, then you will WIN 1-1 on the total blackjack bet staked on that hand. If your hand is the same as the dealer's, then it is a PUSH and your bet is returned to you. If the dealer's hand total is greater than your hand total, then the dealer wins and your stake is not returned. The total amount you have won will be displayed in the PAID field at the top right corner of the game.
When the game is finished, you will be presented with the following buttons:
> Rebet - this button re-bets the same amount bet in the last game.
> Rebet x 2 - this button re-bets doubles the amount bet on the last game.
> New game - this button starts a new game with no bets in place.
