How to Play Blackjack 21+3
Beating the dealer is the aim of the game when it comes to blackjack, but what about those times when winning 1:1 (standard payout) or 3:2 (payout for hitting blackjack) just isn't enough? Well, in this situation you need the help of a bonus betting option and that's where Blackjack 21+3 comes into play.
Otherwise following exactly the same format as the standard variant, Blackjack 21+3 has two unique twists.
The first is that an eight-card hand automatically beats the dealer. Unlike some other variants, you'll only be able to draw eight cards from the deck. However, if you manage to do this without going bust, you'll be declared the winner unless the dealer turns over blackjack.
The second twist, and the one that really makes this game impressive, is the side bet. Otherwise known as the +3 bonus bet, this option allows you to win as much as 100:1 on your bet. To make a +3 bet, you'll need to stake at least the table minimum before your hand is dealt. Once you've done this, the deal will proceed as normal with you as the player receiving two cards and the dealer one.
Following the deal, the value of each card is noted and, if they form one of the following combinations, your side bet is declared a winner:
Making a side bet doesn't affect your main wager at all. However, as you can see, a successful bonus win could help take your blackjack profits to the next level. So, if you're looking to win more during your quest for the sacred total of 21, you need to try Blackjack 21+3.Suggested Games: If Blackjack 21+3 isn't your thing, why not play standard Blackjack?
