    The table limit is £1,000.


    How to Bet

    How to Play

    For a chance of winning any blackjack game, your hand needs to be closer to 21 than the dealer's, without going over it. 

    Once you have placed your bet, both you and the dealer will be dealt two cards each. 

    You will then have several options to try to improve your hand (below).

    If you have Blackjack, you will beat all other hands and win the game.

    Blackjack can only be achieved from your first two cards - it is awarded if you have an Ace and a 10 or picture card.

    If you do not have blackjack, you can make the following choices:

    • Stand - lets the dealer know you're happy with your hand and do not wish to receive any more cards
    • Draw - you will be dealt another card. You can continue to draw until you bust

    Bust is when your hand exceeds 21 - if you 'bust', you will lose regardless of the dealer’s hand.

    The dealer must draw on 16, and will always stand on 17 and above. 

    If your hand and the dealer’s hand are of the same value, the round be declared a ‘push’ and your bet will be returned.

    Bet Types

    • Splitting - If you receive two cards of the same value then you have the option to split your hand into two hands. When splitting, you must place a second wager equal to your original wager to cover the second hand
    • Double Down - Should your original two cards equal 9, 10 or 11 then you are given the chance to double down on your next card. You will place another wager equal to your original one and then receive one final card
    • Insurance - If the dealer's first card is an Ace then you can take insurance in order to protect your original hand. Should the dealer draw Blackjack, your insurance bet will pay out at 2-1. If the dealer does not have Blackjack then your insurance bet will be lost and your hand will continue as normal

    Card Values

    As with all blackjack games, cards assume the following values in Single Deck Blackjack:

    • Ace can have a value of one or 11 - it will adopt the value that is of most benefit to your hand
    • Cards two to 10 are taken at face value
    • All face cards are valued at 10



    In this game, payouts are as follows:

    • A winning hand pays out at 1-1
    • Blackjack pays out at 3-2
    • Insurance pays out at 2-1


    Return to Player (RTP)

    Return to Player: 99.91%

    The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.

    For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out £99.91 of wins.
