Live Blackjack

Go head to head against a live dealer to reach 21 in Live Blackjack!


    Live Blackjack Game Overview

    Up to seven players can play Live Blackjack at any one time, with a live dealer hosting all of our Live Blackjack tables.

    Eight regular 52-card decks are in play during this game, with the card values as shown below:

    • 2-10 - worth their face value.
    • Face cards - valued at ten.
    • Aces - worth either one or 11, depending on which is more beneficial to your hand.

    Once the betting period has ended, each player will be dealt one card face up.

     

    Blackjack

    Your hand being equal to 21 exactly will award Blackjack, which pays out 1.5x your initial bet.


    Insurance

    If the card dealt face up to the dealer is an Ace, you will have the opportunity to buy insurance, which costs half your stake and offers some protection against the possibility of the dealer having Blackjack.

    You will be refunded your entire bet if the dealer gets Blackjack.

    However, if he doesn't get Blackjack your insurance will be lost and the hand proceeds as normal.

     

    Double Down, Hit or Stand

    As the dealer moves clockwise around the table, you will be given a chance to improve your initial hand in turn by choosing to Double Down, Hit or Stand.

    • Double Down - doubles your original bet and awards one card.
    • Hit - adds another card to your hand. This can be repeated as many times as you like until you choose to 'Stand'.
    • Stand - no action is taken.

     

    Split

    If your initial hand is a pair of cards of the same value, you can choose to 'Split' the pair to form two new separate hands - you will need to place another stake of equal value to cover the new hand if you choose to do this.

    Once the second card has been dealt to both your hands, you can 'Hit' for a chance to improve the value.

    If you choose to split two Aces, you will not be able to 'Hit' on the hands.

     

    Side Bets

    Live Blackjack includes optional side bets such as Perfect Pairs and 21+3, exactly as you would find in Casino Blackjack.

     

    Perfect Pairs

    This gives you the opportunity to win if your first two cards are a pair.

    Three different types of pairs are available with a different payout being offered by each one.

    You will share the same outcome as the other player, and receive payouts for the wager in the same way as the standard bets.
