Single Player

The objective of Blackjack is to accumulate cards with a total value of as close to 21 as possible 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:

  • Cards 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, whichever is to the player's advantage. It is worth 11 unless that would cause hand value to exceed 21 (bust), in which case it has a value of 1.
  • Soft total - a hand that contains 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 that contains an Ace that can be counted as only 1 because counting it as 11 would make the hand go over 21. For example: Ace-6-10 is hard 17.

If the player and the house tie, it is a push and no one wins. Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards dealt is an automatic player win at 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties.

Game information

  • The game is available only in 'real money' mode.
  • The minimum bet in the game is €1 and the maximum bet is €200. The maximum bet applies for the initial bet of the game.
  • Eight decks are used and each deck has 52 cards.
  • The deck is shuffled after 10% of the cards in the decks are used.
  • The dealer draws a card on soft 17.
  • Three maximum splits are allowed
  • The number of cards dealt to the dealer or the player is limited only by choice (by clicking on 'Stand') or by going bust.

If the dealer has a 10, Jack, Queen or King as the up card, it is possible he has a Blackjack. In this instance, the player's hand will lose except with another Blackjack. The dealer will check whether a Blackjack is possible and will collect the losing bet immediately if he does have a Blackjack.
