    Blackjack Classic - How to Play

    The aim of Blackjack Classic is to get as close to 21 as possible before the dealer, without busting.

    Achieving 21 in your initial hand awards blackjack!

    How to Play

    One card is dealt face-up to the dealer and the player.

    A second card is then dealt face-up to the player, while the dealer receives a second card face down.

    You can then choose to hit, stand, double down, or split the hands.

    If the dealer's hand equals 16 or less, they have to draw.

    Alternatively, if their hand equals 17 or more then they have to stand.

    A 'push' occurs when your hand is equal to the dealer's.

    In the event of a 'push', bets are returned.


    Card Values

    •  2-9 - face value
    • 10, Jack, Queen, King - 10
    • Ace - 1 or 11, whichever benefits the hand most


    In the event of the dealer's first card being an Ace, you will have the option to buy insurance to offset the risk of them having blackjack.

    Insurance costs one half of the initial bet  and is lost if the dealer does not have blackjack.

    If the dealer has blackjack, the original wager is lost.

    Even Money

    If you have blackjack but the dealer's up-card is an Ace, you can take even money.

    Even money pays 1:1.


    Opting to 'split' is available when the initial hand is formed of two identical cards.

    Splitting a hand will create two new hands with two separate bets.

    Blackjack cannot be achieved from a hand that contains a split Ace.

    A pair of Aces can only be split once, however, other hands may be split up to three times. 

    Double Down

    Choosing to 'double down' will double the original bet and add an extra card to the hand.

    You can choose whether this additional card is dealt face up or face down.



    • Blackjack - 3:2
    • Insurance - 2:1
    • Win - 1:1
    • Even Money - 1:1
    • Push - bets returned
