Live All Bets Blackjack Rules
If youaz have played Blackjack before then you will immediately understand how this game works and if you haven’t, then don’t worry as it is very easy to grasp. The aim of a round is to build a hand of cards that is as close to 21 in value as possible, but without exceeding 21. At the end of a round, as long as your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s is then you have won.
In Blackjack the number cards (2 – 10) are worth their face values, face cards (Jack, Queen and King) are worth 10 and Aces are worth 1 or 11. This means that it is possible to build a hand of 21 using just two cards, an Ace and a ten card. This hand is called Blackjack, it is the strongest possible hand and will always beat all other hands, including those worth 21 but made up of more than two cards.
How a Round Works
At the start of a round, you need to place your bet. Once the time allocated for betting has expired, the dealer deals players two face-up cards each and the dealer will receive one face-up card and one facedown.
The game then presents three basic options, Stand, Hit and Double. Choosing Hit means that the dealer deals you another card, choosing Stand leaves the hand as it is. If you choose Double, your bet will be doubled, you will receive one more card to the hand, and then play moves on to the dealer.
There are some situations where you have more choices. If your first two cards have the same value then you can split them and play them as separate hands. If you split two Aces then you can only draw one more card to each hand, but if you split any other cards then you can play them as regular hands. If the dealer’s face-up card is an Ace then you have the chance to take out insurance against the dealer having Blackjack. Insurance costs half of your original bet and if the dealer does have Blackjack then you are paid double the insurance bet.
When all players at the table have made their choice, the dealer will play. The dealer will always draw more cards until the hand is worth at least 16 and they will stand as soon as the hand is worth 17 or more.
After the dealer has finished playing, you are paid out if you have a winning hand. All winning hands pay at 1:1, except for Blackjack, which pays out at a more generous 3:2.
The Perfect Pairs side bet pays out if your first two cards or the dealer’s first two cards form one of three kinds of pairs, a Perfect Pair, a Coloured Pair or a Red/Black Pair. A Perfect Pair is two identical cards and it pays out at 25:1, a Coloured Pair is two cards that have the same colour and value but come from different suits and it pays out at 12:1, a Red/Black pair is two cards that have the same value but different suits and colours and it pays out at 6:1.
The 21+3 side bet is on the two cards dealt to you combining with the dealer’s face-up card to form a poker hand. It pays out as follows: a Suited Three of a Kind pays out at 100:1, a Straight Flush pays out at 40:1, Three of a Kind pays out at 30:1, a Straight pays out at 10:1 and a Flush pays out at 5:1.
The Buster Blackjack side bet is on the dealer going bust. The more cards in the dealer’s hand when they bust, the bigger the payout. If the dealer goes bust with 3 or 4 cards it pays at 2:1, with 5 cards it pays at 4:1, with 6 cards it pays at 18:1, with 7 cards it pays at 50:1 , with 8 or more cards it pays at 250:1. If they go bust with 7 cards and you have Blackjack it pays at 800:1 and if they goes bust with 8 or more cards and you have Blackjack then it pays a massive 2000:1.
The Lucky Lucky side bet pays when the player’s first two cards and the dealer’s first card form a Suited 777, a Suited 678, an Unsuited 777, an Unsuited 678, a Suited 21, an Unsuited 21, an Any 20 or an Any 19. The Suited 777 pays 200:1, the Suited 678 pays 100:1, an Unsuited 777 pays 50:1, an Unsuited 678 pays 25:1, a Suited 21 pays 15:1, an Unsuited 21 pays 3:1, an Any 20 pays 2:1 and Any 19 pays 2:1.
A Top 3 side bet is a bet on the dealer’s first face-up card and the player’s first two cards forming a Suited Three of a Kind, a Straight Flush of a Three of a Kind combination. A Suited Three of a Kind pays at 270:1, a Straight Flush pays at 180:1 and Three of a Kind pays at 90:1.
