How to Play

Live Blackjack

We offer eight deck Live Blackjack with a live dealer and a real Blackjack table, with multiple players.

If you are not familiar with Blackjack, please proceed to the Blackjack Rules page.

  • When you join a Live game table, you are seated automatically. If you want to take a different available seat, wait for the end of the round and then, click Take a Seat below a free seat to occupy it.

  • Multi Seat* option allows you to occupy multiple seats at the same table and make separate bets from each of the positions. Below an available seat, click Multi Seat to activate. To leave one of seats just click Leave Seat.

  • When you join a BlackJack table, you can choose to be a part of the table as a main player or, if the table is full, join the table as a watcher, or use the Bet Behind option to bet. Bet Behind allows you to participate in the game by taking a seat behind any of the main players and betting on that player's hand.

Betting

  • If a game round is in progress when you enter the table, please wait for the next one, and then, place your bets.

  • The time for placing the bets is limited. The timer in upper right corner of the game window shows how many seconds are left until the end of betting time of this game round.

  • Click on a chip of desired value to select it. Then click on the bet area on the Blackjack table to place your bet.

  • Every click adds a chip of the same value to your bet. Click a different chip to change the bet increase amount.

  • Shift+clicking on the bet area removes one chip from the bet.

  • You must confirm your bet. This can either be done manually, by clicking Confirm after each bet, or automatically at the end of betting time (Auto confirm bets must be enabled in the Settings). Please note, that when auto confirmation of bets is enabled the Confirm button does not appear.

  • Once a main bet has been placed, Side Bets can be placed. Move your cursor over the Blackjack table and click on either the Player's Pair, marked as PP on the game table, or the Dealer's Pair bet area to place your side bet.

  • Wait for your turn. Then use the HitStandDoubleSplit and Insurance buttons as necessary. If you do not make a selection, you automatically Stand.

    If you choose to Double, an amount matching your main bet is taken from your balance and your main bet is doubled.

  • Winnings are paid for the winning hands at the end of each game round.

  • To skip a turn, simply do not place any bets on the table.

  • All confirmed main bets are visible to all of the players at the game table. If you do not wish other players to see your main bet, go to Settings > Game Settings > Hide my Blackjack bets from other players.
  •  

  • If every player at the table busts (scores higher than 21), the round is over. The dealer's second card is not revealed and dealer does not draw additional cards.

Early Decision*

In order to minimize waiting time and ensure faster game pace, Early Decision buttons are displayed right after the first two cards are dealt. Using Early Decision icons, you can preselect an action. You can later change or cancel your selection. When your turn comes, your Early Decision is considered as your action of choice. If you did not use the Early Decision icons, then the usual, big action buttons appear in the middle of the screen and you are given time to make your move.
* Option is available only if enabled by your service provider.

 

Multiple Bets

If the Multiple Bets option is supported, additional bets are accepted after your first bet has been placed and confirmed. Multiple bets are accepted only if the betting round is still open. Please note, that if auto confirmation of bets is disabled, you have to click Confirm after each additional bet.
