In this version, you’ll be playing with cards that are dealt out of a shoe that includes six full decks of standard playing cards. Each round starts with the player making a bet; in the case of this game, you have the option of playing up to three hands at once, each for its own bet. There is also the option to play a side bet
At the start of the round, each hand will be dealt two cards. For the players, both cards will be face up, while the dealer gets one up, and one down (known as the hole card). The object of the game is to make a hand that will beat the dealer. The best score possible is a 21; hands are ranked by how close they are to 21 without going over. Every card will contribute points towards your score: numbered cards are worth their printed value, face cards are worth ten, and aces may count as either 11 or 1, depending on what is best for your hand.
The best possible starting hand is an ace and a ten-point card, which is known as a blackjack. This hand never loses, and only a dealer blackjack can push with it. If the dealer does not have one, then a player blackjack pays out at 3-2 odds.
Should the dealer start with a ten or an ace showing, they will check their hole card to make sure they haven’t made a natural 21 themselves. In the case of an ace, the dealer will also offer insurance. This option bet costs half the amount of your initial hand wager, and pays out at 2-1 if the dealer actually does have a blackjack. In other words, it protects your hand should this happen, as you’ll end up breaking even thanks to having insurance.
If the dealer does have a blackjack, the hand ends immediately, and all player hands (except for their own blackjacks) lose. In all other cases, players now have the option of playing out their hands. There are a number of decisions players can make at various points during play, some of which are always available, and some that can only be utilized at the start of the hand.
Here’s a rundown of what you might choose to do:
Hit: At any time, you may choose to take another card, adding it to your hand score.
Stand: At any time, you may choose to stand, meaning you’ll stick with your hand as is for the rest of the round.
Double Down: This option is only available on your initial two-card hand, and in this version of the game, may only be chosen if your hand score is 9, 10, or 11. If you choose to double down, you must make a second bet equal in size to your initial wager, after which you will receive exactly one more card. Your hand will then stand automatically, with no further play available.
Split: If you have two cards of the same rank, you will have the option of splitting them into two separate hands, each of which will be played for a full bet. Each hand will get a second card, after which you can play them as normal. Splitting is only allowed once per hand. Note that if you split aces, a 21 that results is not considered a blackjack.
You can play out every hand in this manner until one of two things happens: either you stand, or your hand reaches a total of 22 or more. If the latter should happen, your hand will “bust,” and all bets made on it will lose immediately.
Once all player hands have been played out, the dealer will get their turn to make decisions for their own hand. First, the dealer reveals their hole card. After that, they must follow a couple of simple rules. If the dealer has 16 or less, then they will hit; if they have 17 or more, they stand.
Should the dealer bust, then all remaining player bets pay out at even money (except for blackjacks, which pay at 3-2 odds as described above). If the dealer stands, then their score is compared to that of each player hand. If the player hand is higher, all bets win at even money odds; if the dealer has the better score, then all bets are lost. In the case of a tie, all wagers push.
A bet is placed only when it has been received by our server from your handset using our software. Once a bet has been placed it is final and binding and cannot be cancelled or changed. For the avoidance of doubt, a bet remains valid even if the result cannot for any reason be displayed back to your handset (due, for example, to a network failure, interruption of communication, or if you receive a phone call). In the event of a game termination, any relevant jackpot will be paid out on a random draw authorised by the regulator.
The theoretical average return to player (RTP) is up to 99.63%. This RTP represents the long-term expected payback of the game which has been calculated by an independent testing company and monitored monthly.
Malfunction voids all plays and pay outs.
Unresolved bets placed but remaining undecided in incomplete games will become void after 90 days and will be forfeited to charity.
