Discover a slick casino experience when you race against dedicated dealers to 21 in Signature Live Blackjack!


    Signature Live Blackjack Game Overview 

    The chip sizes available in Signature Live Blackjack range from £1 to £500.


    Cards

    Signature Live Blackjack uses eight standard decks of 52 cards.

    The cards are valued as follows:

    • Numbered cards - worth the number on that card
    • Jack, Queen, King - worth ten
    • Ace - one or 11 (whichever is better for the hand)

    Each player receives one card face-up at the end of the betting time.


    How to Get Blackjack

    You win Blackjack if the value of your starting hand is exactly 21! 

    Achieving Blackjack will award 1.5x your initial bet.

     

    Insurance Wager

    Insurance can be bought if the dealer's up-card is an Ace.

    Buying insurance lets you protect yourself against the risk of the dealer having Blackjack - this applies even if you have Blackjack.

    Insurance costs 0.5x your main wager - both wagers are settled individually.

    Insurance pays out at 2:1 if the dealer has Blackjack.

    The dealer wins if you don't have Blackjack but they do.

    The game continues to play if the dealer does not have Blackjack.

    In the event of both you and the dealer achieving Blackjack, a 'push' will be declared and your stake will be refunded.


    Double Down Feature

    Once you have received your first two cards, you can choose to 'Double Down' which will add one more card to your hand.

    The value of your wager will be doubled if you choose to place a Double Down wager.

    You can't Double Down on a split hand.


    Hit Feature

    Choosing 'Hit' will add an extra card to your hand.

    You can continue to 'Hit' until your hand value exceeds 21.


    Stand Feature

    Opting to 'Stand' signals that you are satisfied with the value of your current hand so no further cards are added.


    Split Feature

    If your first two cards are both equal in value, then you can choose to 'Split' them into two hands.

    A separate bet is placed on each hand that equals the same as your first bet.

    Another card is dealt to each hand so that they both contain two cards.

    Unless the initial hand was a pair of Aces, you can choose to 'Hit' on both hands.

    A hand can only be 'Split' once.


    Results

    Exceeding 21 in a hand will result in a bust.

    The dealer will show their second card after everyone else has shown their hands.

    At this point, the dealer will have to 'Hit' if their hand equals 16 or less.

    If their hand equals a soft 17 or more, they will have to 'Stand'.

    To win Signature Live Blackjack, your hand will need to be closer to 21 than the dealer's or the dealer's hand needs to bust.

    A Blackjack hand is more valuable than a hand of 21 that is formed of at least three cards.

    Blackjack is also worth more than a hand of 21 that was originally a 'Split' pair.


    Optional Side Bets

    There are several side bets available in this game.


    Perfect Pairs Side Bet

    It is possible to place this side bet if your first two cards are a pair.

    There are three types of Perfect Pairs:

    Bet Behind Feature

    This feature allows you to share the outcome of another player's hand by betting behind it.

    Choose a Bet Behind spot behind another player's seat before the betting time expires.

    If your chosen player decides not to play, then your wager will be returned.

    You can also choose to double your wager if your chosen player decides to 'Double Down' or 'Split'.

    It is not possible to prevent players from betting behind your hand.

    Betting behind your own hand is not possible.

     

    Hot Player

    It is possible to identify which player has the longest winning streak with the 'Hot Players' icon.

    The number shown on the Hot Players icon represents the number of consecutive wins that the player has achieved.

    If a Hot Player loses a round, they will also lose the Hot Players icon.


    Return to Player (RTP)

    The optimal theoretical payout percentage is:

    • Blackjack – 99.28%
    • Perfect Pairs bet – 95.90%
    • 21+3 bet – 96.30%

    The expected return to player is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.

    For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out £99.28 of wins.
