Single Player Multi-Hand

Multi-hand blackjack allows you to play up to five hands of Blackjack at once, one after the other. The objective is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. The value of a hand is the sum of the point counts of each card in the hand. The value assigned to the cards is as follows:

  • The cards from 2 through 10 are valued as indicated.
  • Face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) are all valued at 10 points.
  • An Ace counts as one or 11: If scoring an 11 would cause your hand value to exceed 21 ('bust'), an Ace will count as one.
  • Soft total: A hand containing an Ace that can be counted as 11 without the total going above 21. For example, Ace-6 is soft 17.
  • Hard total: A hand containing an Ace that can only be counted as one because counting it as 11 would make the hand go over 21. For example, Ace-6-10 is hard 17.
  • A tie between the player and the house is known as a 'push', and means that no one wins or loses. If the first two cards dealt are an Ace and any 10-point card (Jack, Queen, King, or 10), it is known as blackjack, and is an automatic win for the player at 1.5:1, unless the house ties.

Game information

  • The minimum and maximum bets in the game are shown in the Lobby and in the title bar of the game window. The maximum bet only applies to the initial bet.
  • Eight decks are used in the Multi-hand version of blackjack, and each deck has 52 cards
  • The deck is shuffled after 20% of the cards in the decks have been used
  • The dealer draws a card on soft 17 and stands on 17 or more
  • You can only split once
  • There is no limit on the number of cards that can be dealt to the dealer or the player. It is limited only by choice (by clicking 'STAND') or the hand total being greater than or equal to 21 except in the cases of doubling down and split aces, where no more than one card will be dealt.
  • If the dealer has a 10, Jack, Queen, King, or Ace as his first card, he will check to see if he has a blackjack before you draw your third card.
