- To place a bet on your hand, tap on a chip at the bottom of the screen to select your chip value and then tap on the large circle on the table. Every tap on the large circle increases your bet by the value of the selected chip.
- To place a side bet tap on a chip at the bottom of the screen to select your chip value and then tap on the area marked “Player's Pair”, “21+3” or “Dealer's Pair”. You can place multiple side bets in the same round. You cannot place side bets without also placing a bet on your hand.

- The minimum and maximum bet limits depend on your VIP level and are shown at the top of the table. The limits apply to the initial bet only. Actions that require an additional bet (Split, Insurance, and Double) can still be used even if you placed a bet equal to the maximum bet.
- Tap the DEAL button to deal the cards. 2 cards are dealt to the player's hand and 2 cards are dealt to the dealer's hand. The cards are dealt clockwise one at a time. The first card goes to the player's hand. The last card goes to the dealer's hand and is dealt face down.
- If the dealer's face up card is an Ace, you will be offered insurance. Tap ACCEPT to insure a hand against the dealer having Blackjack. If you do not want insurance, tap DECLINE.
- If your first two cards have the same value, you can split your hand by tapping SPLIT.

- Tap DOUBLE after your cards have been dealt to double your bet and receive a third card. It is not possible to draw another card after tapping DOUBLE. The DOUBLE option isn’t available after tapping HIT.
- If you do not want any more cards, tap STAND.
- Please note that Insurance, Double and Split require an additional bet. If your balance does not have enough money to cover these expenses, you will need to deposit more money to use these options.
- The dealer reveals the face down card and draws additional cards according to the rules.
- Your hand is compared to the dealer's hand. If your hand has a higher value than the dealer's and has not gone bust, you win with that hand.
- If any hand value reaches 22 or more, it is bust.

The object of Premium Blackjack Single Hand is to get a hand that totals 21 or is closer to 21 than the dealer's hand without exceeding 21.
The value of a hand is the sum of the individual cards' values. Blackjack is an exception: it is the highest hand and consists of an ace and any 10-point card.
Premium Blackjack Single Hand is a variant of Premium Blackjack with the following rules:
- 6 decks of cards are used. After each round, used cards are returned to the decks and the decks are shuffled.
- Aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards count as 10, and number cards count as their face values.
- The player may not split a split hand.
- Only one card is drawn to split aces.
- The player may double one or both split hands.
- The dealer will not check for Blackjack in any case.
- Ace and a 10-point card after a split are considered 21.
- Blackjack pays 1.5 times the bet amount (3 to 2).
- If the total value of the player's cards is closer to 21 than the dealer's, the player wins the bet amount (1 to 1).
- If the total of the player's cards is more than 21, the player is “bust” and automatically loses the bet.
- If the player and the dealer reach the same point total (17 to 21), neither of them wins and the player's bet is returned to the player in a “push”.
- The dealer always draws to 16 and stands on 17 or greater (including soft 17). The dealer does not draw when the player is “bust”.
- If the dealer's first card is an ace, the player doubles, and the dealer gets Blackjack, then the player loses the doubled bet.
- If the dealer's first card is of value 10, the player doubles, and the dealer gets Blackjack, then the doubled bet is returned to the player.
- Blackjack beats a score of 21.
If your first 2 cards have the same value, you may split them into 2 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 2 aces, you receive only 1 additional card for each ace. A split hand that contains an ace and a 10-point card is considered 21 and not Blackjack.
You may wish to double your bet if, after you are dealt your first two cards, you think that the third card will allow you to beat the dealer's hand. By choosing to double the bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of your balance), and you are dealt one more card. You can also double down after splitting a pair.
If the dealer shows an ace in their initial hand, you are given a chance to insure your bet against the dealer having Blackjack. If you get Insurance, an amount equal to half your original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer has Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount.
If you decide to deactivate the insurance offering during the existing game session, insurance will not be offered. In order to use insurance again, it must be reactivated through the game settings dialog accessible by tapping the MENU button.
It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 10 cards without going bust. In this case the player's hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack. 10-Card Charlie is also applicable on a split hand.
A side bet is a wager you can make beyond the regular game bet to get an extra win even if your hand does not beat the dealer's. The side bet payout depends on the combination that the cards form.
You can place the Player's Perfect Pair side bet on the “Player's Pair” betting area. The Dealer's Perfect Pair side bet can be placed on the “Dealer's Pair” betting area. The Player's Perfect Pair side bet wins if your first two cards form a Perfect Pair, Colored Pair, or a Red/Black Pair. The Dealer's Perfect Pair side bet wins if the dealer's first two cards form a Perfect Pair, Colored Pair, or a Red/Black Pair.
A “21+3” side bet can be placed on the “21+3” betting area. This side bet wins if your first two cards and the dealer's first card form a Flush, Straight, Straight Flush, Suited Three of a Kind or Three of a Kind combination.
- Perfect Pair means that your or dealer's first two cards form a pair of the same suit (for example, a pair of 4 of Diamonds).
- Colored Pair means that your or dealer's first two cards form a pair of the same color but different suit (for example, 4 of Diamonds and 4 of Hearts)
- Red/Black Pair means that your or dealer's first two cards form a pair, but with different colors and suits (for example, 4 of Diamonds and 4 of Spades).
- 21+3 means that your first two cards and dealer's first card form a Flush, Straight, Straight Flush, Suited Three of a Kind or Three of a Kind combination.
The Perfect Pair, Colored Pair, Red/Black Pair, and 21+3 combinations win according to the paytable.
Side bets cannot be placed without placing a regular bet. All three types of side bets can be placed at the same time.
|Suited Three of a Kind||100:1|
|Three of a Kind||30:1|
The payout format used here means that when you win, you get back your bet plus an amount that is a multiple of your bet.
