Game Rules

Six 52-card decks are used in Blackjack and shuffled together before every hand is dealt, and the dealer does not receive a hole card. The dealer must hit on all totals of 16 or under, as well as on soft 17 (a hand containing an ace that totals either seven or 17), and should players hit Blackjack you will be paid at 3:2 odds.

If the player’s hand loses to Blackjack, then only the compulsory initial bet is forfeited and all other optional bets that have not bust (splits and doubles) will be pushed and returned.

Player Betting Options

There is a minimum bet in Blackjack, but more betting options become available as hands progress.

Players can double down on any two-card hand, meaning you can double your initial bet, so long as you are committed to ‘standing’ after being dealt one additional card.

Player can also split two cards if they are paired or of equal value. Therefore, if you are dealt king-queen, jack-ten, nine-nine or seven-seven you can create two hands for an additional wager of the same amount. Here are some additional rules on splitting:

  • Players can split once for a total of two hands, except when dealt a pair of aces
  • Aces may be split only once, after which players will receive only one card for each split hand
  • Players can double down on any hand, including after a non-ace split

Insurance and Surrender

When playing Blackjack, players cannot ‘surrender’. However, if you think the dealer is about to hit Blackjack, you can also buy ‘insurance’. This means should the dealer hit Blackjack, you’ll be paid 2:1 on your insurance bet.

The theoretical return to player (RTP) for Blackjack is 99.40%.
