High Stakes Single Deck Blackjack

Take on the dealer in this classic casino game, High Stakes Single Deck Blackjack, for a stimulating gameplay and potentially big prizes to be won. 

    High Stakes Single Deck Blackjack - How To Play 

    As with any Blackjack game, the aim is to beat the dealer by forming a hand which is closer in value to 21 than theirs.

    Continue to draw cards until your hand equals 21 or is as close to 21 as possible without exceeding it. 

    Going over 21 will cause you to 'bust' and lose. 

    Blackjack is the best score possible - it's awarded when your initial two-card hand totals 21 and is achieved by an Ace and a 10 or picture card. 

    Blackjack beats all other hands totaling 21, which aren't achieved by blackjack. 

    • Hit - adds another card to your hand 
    • Stand - means you won't be dealt any more cards


    If your first two cards are of the same value, you can 'split' your one hand into two separate hands. 

    This requires you to place another bet on the second hand at the same value as your original wager.

    It's not possible to win blackjack when splitting, even if your initial hand comprised two Aces.

    If you and the dealer both achieve blackjack, the dealer always wins if your blackjack was formed from a split hand of two Aces.

    You can split a hand a maximum of three times - this lets your hold up to four cards at once.

    Aces can only be split once.

    Double Down

    This feature allows you to double your bet.

    If you Double Down, you'll only be able to add one more card to your hand, and only if your initial hand equals nine, 10 or 11. 

    You can choose if the card is dealt face up or face down.

    Game Rules

    The dealer must draw another card if their initial hand equals 16 or less; they must stand if it equals 17 or more. 

    Any hand with blackjack wins - this is when your two cards comprise an Ace and a 10 or picture card. 

    Going over 21 means your hand will 'bust' and lose, regardless of the dealer’s hand. 

    If your hand is worth the same as the dealer’s, the round is declared a ‘push’ and your bet will be returned.

    Placing Bets

    Place your bets to start the game. 

    Do this by choosing a chip from the rack at the bottom of the screen and placing it on the casino table.

    • ‘Undo’ - removes the last chip you placed
    • 'Clear Bets' - removes every chip that you've placed on the table

    You can also place the below three bets in this game: 

    • Repeat and deal: repeats your bet from the previous game
    • Let ‘em ride: wagers your winnings from the previous game (can't be done if you placed an insurance bet in your previous game)
    • Double down: doubles your bet from the previous game. You can only Double Down if you initial hand totals nine, 10 or 11

    Card Values

    • Ace - one or 11, whichever value benefits your hand the most
    • Cards 2-9 - face value
    • 10, Jack, Queen and King - all worth 10 


    • Winning hand - 1:1
    • Blackjack - 3:2
    • Insurance - 2:1
