First Person Blackjack

Race to reach 21 in First Person Blackjack!

    First Person Blackjack Game Overview

    The bet sizes in First Person Blackjack range from 50p to £1000.

    Game Rules

    This game has the same goal as regular blackjack: to beat the dealer in a race to 21, without going over that value!

    A maximum of seven players can play against the dealer at one time. 

    The values of the cards used in this game are as follows:

    • Cards numbered from two to ten are worth their face value. 
    • Face cards are each worth ten.
    • Aces are worth one or 11, whichever is more favourable to the hand - a soft hand includes an Ace worth 11.

    At the end of the betting time, the dealer will hand out cards in a clockwise motion beginning with the first player to their left.

    Each card is dealt face-up, except for the dealer's second card.


    If the dealer's upcard is an Ace, then they may have blackjack.

    When this happens, you can choose to place an Insurance wager for 50% of your main wager.

    You will be offered the chance to place an Insurance wager even if your hand equals blackjack (21 exactly).

    The Insurance wager is reviewed independently from the main wager.

    Once you have placed an Insurance wager, the dealer will check their down-card for blackjack.

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

    If you and the dealer both have Blackjack, then the Insurance wager will be returned.

    Double Down, Hit or Stand Options

    These options will become available if the dealer doesn't have blackjack.

    You can only Double Down if your first two cards don't equal 21.

    The Double Down option will increase the value of your wager by 2x and add another card to your hand.

    Choosing to 'Hit' will also increase the number of cards in your hand.

    The 'Stand' option indicates that you don't wish to receive any more cards.


    You will be offered the option to 'Split' when your first two cards are equal in value.

    Deciding to 'Split' will create two new hands containing two cards, with one card from the original hand in each one.

    The two new hands will have separate bets that equal your original wager.

    You won't receive the option to 'Hit' if you have separated a pair of Aces.


    You will go bust if the value of your hand goes over 21. 

    The dealer has to 'Hit' on a hand worth 16 or less but 'Stand' on a hand of soft 17 or more.

    Getting closer to 21 than the dealer will award you the title of winner!

    A push is declared if your hand is equal to the dealers.

    Side Bets

    The two side bets available in this game are Perfect Pairs and 21+3.

    These bets are reviewed independently of your main bet.

    Perfect Pairs Side Bet

    The Perfect Pairs side bet offers the chance to win if your first two cards make any pair of cards.

    There are three types of pairs available, each with a different payout. 

    • Perfect Pair - same suit
    • Coloured Pair - different suits of the same colour
    • Mixed Pair - different suits

    21+3 Side Bet

    The 21+3 side bet offers the chance to win if the sum of your first two cards and the dealer's upcard make one of the following winning combinations.

    Each combination has a different payout:

    • Suited Trips - an identical triplet
    • Straight Flush - in numerical sequence and the same suit
    • Three of a Kind - same value but different suits
    • Straight - in numerical sequence but different suits
    • Flush - same suit but in no particular order 

    Bet Behind Feature 

    The Bet Behind feature offers the chance to place a wager on another player's hand.

    Bet Behind wagers offer the same payouts are normal wagers.

    You can place a Bet Behind wager even if you aren't playing at that table.

    You can't place a Bet Behind wager on yourself.

    If the player that you have covered with a Bet Behind wager decides not to play, then your wager will be returned.

    You can prevent others from placing a Bet Behind wager on your hand by unticking the 'Allow other players to bet behind me' option.
