Blackjack Game Tutorial
The following rules apply in Blackjack:
- The card values are as follows: the numbered cards 2-10 are worth their face value, aces count as 1 or 11; and the jack, queen, and king count as 10 points
- The hand closest to 21 points wins
- All hands of 22 points or above lose (Bust)
- In Blackjack only the first card of the dealer is played open
- You have a Blackjack when your first two cards are 21 points; this consists of an Ace and a 10 point card.
- A Blackjack always beats a hand of 21 points
- When the dealer gets a hand of less than 17 points, a third card must be drawn
- Your bet will not be lost when a draw occurs
When you get two cards of the same value in the same hand in Blackjack, you are allowed to split these into two separate hands. For all split hands you can get additional cards, except for Aces. When you get an ace and a ten point card in a split hand, this does not count as an original Blackjack. By splitting you double the initial bet. You play the hands one by one.
You have the option to take insurance in Blackjack. This can be done when the dealer’s visible card is an Ace. Insurance does cost money, 0.5 times the initial bet to be exact. When the dealer does have a blackjack, this will pay 2:1. When the dealer does not have a blackjack, the insurance is lost.
After you have seen your first two cards you are allowed to double. In that case you will get one extra card to complete the hand. You are also allowed to double after splitting.
Blackjack Bet Limits
In Blackjack you can choose between chips of 1, 5, or 10 euros. These may be bet multiple times and may be combined. The minimum bet is 1 euro and the maximum bet is 40 euros.
Pay Table / Win Plan
When you move your mouse over the MIN / MAX sign at the top of the screen, the pay table will become visible. Blackjack pays 3:2, a win after insurance pays 2:1; all other wins pay 1:1. Learn how to win at blackjack with our quick and insightful tutorial.
