Game options

Stand
Clicking the 'STAND' button will keep your hand at its current value. You may stand at any time if you are satisfied with your hand as it is. Click 'STAND' and, when the dealer completes his or her hand, the hands will be compared.

Hit
You may continue to take cards until you either stand, go bust, or the value of a hand is 21. Click 'HIT' to be dealt the next card.

Double
After you are dealt your first two cards, you will be offered the chance to 'DOUBLE'. Once this option is selected, the bet amount is automatically doubled and you will be dealt one more card. The hand will auto-stand after the card is dealt.

Doubling down is also offered after splitting. If your account balance is not sufficient for the additional bet, the double-down option will not be offered.

In case you lose the hand, you lose both the initial bet and the additional amount placed for the double-down option.

Split
If you have two cards of the same value (for example two 7s, two 10s, two face cards, etc.), you can click 'SPLIT' to split the cards into two separate hands. Once this option is selected, an additional bet equal to your original bet is automatically placed.

You are only allowed to split once, even if more splitting opportunities arise. If the hand qualifies for a split but your room balance is too small to cover the additional bet, the split option will not be offered.

You may draw as many cards as you wish on each split hand, with the exception of splitting on Aces and doubling down after splits. If you split 'Aces', only one card will be dealt to each Ace. If a face card or a 10 is dealt to either Ace, the hand is counted as 21, not blackjack.

How to play the split option

  • Once the 'Split' option is clicked, the cards are split into two separate hands and one more card is dealt to each of the hands. The hand with an arrow pointing towards it is the active hand.
  • Click on 'Hit', 'Stand', or another of the available options
  • Once the first hand is decided, the arrow moves to the second hand

The arrow will not be shown if the hand value is 21. It will move to the other hand automatically. Click on 'Hit', 'Stand', or another of the available options

Insurance
Insurance gives you a chance to protect yourself when you believe the dealer has blackjack. If the dealer's first card (face-up card) is an Ace, you can opt to insure your hands against the dealer's blackjack by clicking either the 'Yes' button or the 'No' button displayed near the dealt cards. Insurance costs 50% of the bet amount in addition to your initial bet. The insurance bet will be placed automatically and will be displayed to the right of the occupied seat. If you do not take any action within 20 seconds of the insurance being offered, the system will assume you have rejected the option and the game will continue.

If the dealer has a blackjack, the insurance bet pays 2:1, and you will lose the initial bet. If the dealer does not hit blackjack, you will lose the insured bet and the game will continue for the initial bet amount. You will not be offered insurance if you have a blackjack.

The 'Insurance' option will not be offered if the hand qualifies for insurance but your account balance is too small to cover the additional bet.

Surrender
You can choose to discontinue play of your hand for that round and surrender one-half of your bet amount when your first two cards are revealed. This decision must be made before you decide to double down, split pairs, stand, or hit.

The 'Surrender' option is offered after the dealer has checked to see if he has a blackjack. If the dealer's second card results in a blackjack, your entire wager will be collected by the dealer and the game will come to an end. However, if the dealer's second card does not result in a blackjack, and you opt for the 'Surrender' option, one half of your bet will be returned to you.
