Play our first ever three-seat Blackjack game, not to mention our fastest one to date!
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.
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:
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%.
Perfect Pairs™ is an optional bet, offering players the choice to make a separate wager on whether their two cards will be paired. There are three types of pairs, depending on whether both the rank and suit, suit color, or simply rank is matched with both cards. These award payouts at the following odds:
|Perfect Pair (matched suits, e.g. 9s-9s, Ah-Ah)||25:1|
|Colored Pair (matched colors, e.g. 7s-7c, Qh-Qd)||15:1|
|Mixed Pair (matched ranks only, e.g. 6s-6d, Kc-Kh)||5:1|
The theoretical return to player (RTP) from the Perfect Pairs™ side bet is 95.82%.
