    Signature Live Blackjack Game Overview 

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


    How to Play Signature Live Blackjack

    Signature Live Blackjack uses eight regular decks of 52 cards.

    The cards are valued as below:

    • Numbered cards 2-10 - worth their face value
    • Jack, Queen, King - worth ten
    • Ace - one or 11 (whichever benefits the hand more)

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


    Blackjack

    You win Blackjack if your initial hand is worth exactly 21! 

    Achieving Blackjack will award 1.5x your initial bet.

     

    Insurance

    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, even if you have Blackjack.

    Insurance costs 0.5x your main bet - both bets are settled individually.

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

    If the dealer has Blackjack and you do not, they will win.

    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

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

    Choosing to 'Double Down' will also double your stake.

    This option is not possible if your hand has been split.


    Hit 

    Choosing 'Hit' will add another card to your hand.

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


    Stand

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


    Split

    If your initial 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.


    Outcome

    Exceeding 21 in a hand will result in a bust.

    Once all players have revealed their hands, the dealer will reveal their second card.

    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 worth more than a hand of 21 that is formed of three or more cards.

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


    Side Bets

    There are several side bets available in Signature Live Blackjack.

    Each side bet placed is combined with your main bet.


    Perfect Pairs

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

    There are three types of Perfect Pairs:

    Perfect PairDescriptionPayout
    Mixed PairDifferent suits6:1
    Coloured PairDifferent suits but same colour12:1
    Perfect PairSame suit and value25:1

    21+3

    This side bet is possible if your first two cards plus the dealer's up-card creates one of the following combinations:

    21+3 TypeDescriptionPayout
    FlushSame suit5:1
    StraightDifferent suits but in numerical order10:1
    Three of a KindDifferent suits but identical values30:1
    Straight FlushSame suit and in numerical order40:1
    Suited TripsAn identical triplet100:1

    Malfunctions will void this round and the payouts. 


    Bet Behind Feature

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

    Bet Behind payouts are the same as standard bets.

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

    If your chosen player decides not to participate in a round, then your stake 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.
