Hit 21 in the classic casino game Blackjack!

    Blackjack - Game Overview

    When you play Blackjack, your goal is to comprise a hand with a total as near to 21 as you can, and you must not exceed this figure.

    In Blackjack, you will go head-to-head with the dealer, and you each are dealt two cards. These will be your initial hand.

    The numbered cards are worth the stated value. Jacks, Queens and Kings have a value of 10, while Aces can be worth either 1 or 11, depending which would suit your hand more effectively.

    You will win Blackjack if the value of your initial two cards is 21, and this triggers a payout of 3:2.

    If you wish to receive another card, you must select 'Draw'.

    If you're happy with your hand as it is and don't want any extra cards, select 'Stand'.

    Should the dealer have a hand worth fewer than 17, they will draw another card. Once they've reached a total of 17 or higher, they must stand.

    After the round is over, if your cards are worth exactly the same as the dealer's the result will be a push, which means your stake will be refunded.


    If the first two cards you receive have the same value, you will have the option to split them to form two separate hands.

    When you split, you are required to double your initial wager in order to cover the new hand.

    Splitting will mean you will be unable to win Blackjack.

    Double Down

    You can double down on your first bet after the first two cards are dealt.

    Your stake will be doubled as a result, and you will then receive only one further card. This can be dealt either face up or face down.


    If the dealer's first card is an Ace, you will be able to purchase insurance to protect your hand against the chance of them having Blackjack. Insurance is priced at half of your initial wager.

    If the dealer doesn't have Blackjack, your insurance bet loses and the hand continues as normal.

    When the dealer does have Blackjack and you've bought insurance, you will lose your initial wager, and your insurance bet wins with a payout of 2:1.
