Try and reach 21 in the classic casino favourite Blackjack, in our Live Casino's Live Blackjack.
Our Live Blackjack tables are hosted by our professionally trained Live Dealers and contains all the standard blackjack features such as Double Down, Insurance and Split along with additional optional side bets such as Perfect Pairs and 21+3.
If you enjoy non-stop action, you can join up to four different game tables from our Live Casino hub at the same time and view them all in the same browser window!
Our Live Blackjack tables are hosted by a live dealer and allows up to seven players to play at a time.
The game is played with eight regular 52-card decks with the following card values:
- Cards from 2 to 10 are worth their face value
- All Face cards are worth 10
- Aces are worth 1 or 11 depending on which is more favourable to use give the hand.
When the betting period has expired, the dealer will deal one card face up to each player in the game.
Should the value of your hand totals to exactly 21, then you have Blackjack and will be paid out 1.5x your original bet.
If the dealer's face up hand is showing an Ace, you will be prompted the option to purchase insurance to protect yourself from the risk of the dealer having Blackjack. Insurance will cost you half your bet.
Should the dealer get Blackjack, then you receive your entire bet back, if the dealer doesn't then your insurance is lost and the hand will continue as normal.
Double Down, Hit or Stand
After your initial two cards, you have a chance to improve your original hand.
You can either Double Down, Hit or Stand.
- Double Down will double your original bet in exchange for just one additional card.
- 'Hit' will deal you another card to add to your hand. You can 'hit' as many times as you want before deciding to 'Stand' once you are happy with the value of your hand.
- 'Stand' will indicate that you are happy with your hand and do not want to make any more actions.
If the initial hand you are dealt are pairs of the same value, then you will have the option to split the pair and make two new separate hands. You must then place another bet of equal value to cover the new hand.
After a second card is dealt to both your new hands, you can improve the value of the two hands by hitting until you are happy to stand.
However, if the cards that were split were Aces, then you will only receive one additional card per hand with no option to hit again.
Just like Casino Blackjack, Live Blackjack includes optional side bets such as Perfect Pairs and 21+3.
The Perfect Pairs bet gives you the chance to win if your first two cards comprise any pair – there are three different types of pairs, each with a different payout.
- Perfect Pair - same suit
- Coloured Pair - different suits of the same colour
- Mixed Pair - different suits
The 21+3 bet gives you the chance to win if your first two cards plus the dealer’s upcard comprise any of the following winning combinations –
- Suited Trips - an identical triplet (e.g) 3 Queens of Hearts
- Straight Flush - in numerical sequence and the same suit
- Three of a Kind - same value but different suits
- Straight - in numerical sequence but different suits
- Flush - same suit
This feature allows you to bet on another player's hand.
You will share the same outcome as the other player and will be paid out for the wager the same as ordinary bets.
The 'Hot Player' icon will indicate which other players on the table is on a winning streak.
The number indicated within the gold medals indicate the number of consecutive rounds that player has won.
Should a 'hot player' lose a hand they will lose the 'hot player' status.
Blackjack pays 3 to 2. A winning hand pays 1 to 1. If the dealer has Blackjack, insurance pays 2 to 1.
If you enjoy non-stop action, you can join up to four different game tables at the same time and view them all in the same browser window.
After you have joined multiple tables, you will not be able to resize each game table window separately, but you will be able to resize your browser window as a whole.
