Rules

Blackjack Rules

The object of Blackjack is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards at their face value.

If you receive an ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win 1.5 times your bet (if your bet was 10, you receive 25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, you win your bet amount (if your bet was 10, you receive 20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you “bust” and lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 and up) neither of you win and your bet is returned to you in a “push”. Blackjack beats a score of 21.

Our Blackjack follows the following rules:

  • After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
  • The player may split up to 4 hands.
  • Only one card is drawn to split aces.
  • The player may not split pairs of 4’s, 5’s or 10’s.
  • The player may double after splitting.
  • The player may double only if his hand total is 9, 10 or 11.
  • The player can only buy insurance if he has Blackjack.
  • If the player doubles and the dealer gets blackjack, the double bet is returned to the player.

Split

If your first two cards have the same value, you may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet. You will then draw additional cards to each hand. You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, but if you split two aces, you receive only one additional card for each ace. If you receive an ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack.

A split hand can be split again, up to a maximum of 4 hands (for each original hand in Multihand mode).

You cannot split pairs of 4s, 5s or 10s.

Double

If, after you are dealt your first two cards, you think that the third card will allow you to beat the dealer’s hand, you can double your bet. The bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of your balance), and you are dealt one more card.

You can only Double if the sum of the card values in your hand is 9, 10 or 11.

Insurance

If the dealer shows an Ace in his initial hand, you are given a chance to insure your bet against him having a Blackjack. If you get Insurance, an amount equal to half your original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. This way you do not lose your original bet (because you get the 2x half your original bet, plus the insurance amount back). If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount, even if you end up losing.
