Type of Game: Table Game
States Available: PA
How to Play:
- Players are playing against the dealer
- The goal is to have a stronger hand than the dealer without going over 21
- Number cards (2-10) count as face value, Aces count as either 1 or 11, and Kings, Queens, and Jacks count as 10.
- No particular significance is given to any of the 4 suits.
- The play takes place against a computerized dealer. The dealer is dealt two cards, and the player is dealt two cards in each box.
- The player's cards are dealt face-up, while only the dealer's first card is shown.
- You can decide to Hit, Double, Split, or Stand.
- Depending on your cards and the dealer's card, you may additionally have the options to split, take even money, or take insurance.
- If you decide to Hit, Double, or Split, the next card or cards dealt are counted toward those decisions.
- When you decide to Stand, or your hand busts, the next cards dealt are automatically assigned to the next hand or the dealer's hand depending on which hand you are playing.
- The game round is finished when the dealer finishes its hand.
- The cards are re-shuffled for each game round.
- The minimum and maximum bets for the table are displayed in the MIN/MAX section of the table.
- If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer's hand without going over, you win.
- If the dealer's hand is closer to 21 without going over, you lose.
- The dealer must stand on 17 or higher, and draw cards to 16.
- Hands of equal value to the dealers are a push, and your bet is returned.
- If your hand is 22 or higher (busted), you lose regardless of the value of the dealer's hand.
- Blackjack: When the two cards that you were dealt equal exactly 21 (Automatic win/ or push).
- Insurance: If the dealer’s card is an Ace, the player can choose to place an additional insurance bet that pays out if the dealer wins with Blackjack.
Split Hand: In Blackjack, split the initial two cards into two separate hands. This is allowed only when the initial two cards are of equal rank.
Soft Hand: In Blackjack, a hand that contains one or more aces that can be worth either 1 or 11.
- The player will click “Yes” and then place an additional bet that is half the initial Blackjack bet.
- If the dealer does not have BlackJack the patron will win twice the insurance bet. If the dealer does have Blackjack the patron loses their insurance bet.
- Allows the player to bet on receiving any pair (e.g.two Queens, two Aces, two 7s, etc) in the first two cards of his or her hand.
- The level of payout depends on the probability of being dealt that pair. There are three types of winning pair combinations:
- Perfect Pair - same suit, e.g. 2x Ace of spades.
- Coloured Pair - different suits of the same color, e.g. 2 of diamonds (red) and 2 of hearts (red).
- Mixed Pair - different suits of different colors, e.g. 6 of clubs (black) and 6 of hearts (red).
- Allows the player to bet on the combination of three cards: the first two cards in the player’s hand and the dealer’s up card.
- Winning combinations (similar to Poker) are as follows, with payouts depending on the probability of the combination being dealt:
- Cards 2-10 are worth their face value
- Face cards (Jacks, Queen, King) are worth 10
- Aces are with either 1 or 11 whichever is more favorable
Should disconnection occur after a bet is placed but before the DEAL NOW button is clicked/tapped, your bet will be returned after reconnecting.
If the connection is lost after the DEAL NOW button is clicked/tapped while making a decision, the game will be resumed after reconnection. If reconnection does not occur within 20 minutes the auto decision stand will be performed and the game will settle. (If a patron has an 11 or below an automatic hit will occur. If the patron has a 12 or higher auto stand will take place.)
Please note that even if you are at the table but do not play (place or change your bet and click/ tap take DEAL button or make any decision), this will also be considered a disconnection.
