Live Blackjack Rules
Here’s a detailed explanation of the rules of live blackjack:
- Number of players: Live blackjack is typically played with up to 7 players, including the dealer.
- Deck of cards: The game is played with one or more standard 52-card decks, with each card having a specific value.
- Card values: In blackjack, cards 2 to 10 are worth their face value, while face cards (jacks, queens, and kings) are each worth 10. Aces can be worth either 1 or 11, depending on what is more favorable for the hand.
- Object of the game: The objective of blackjack is to beat the dealer by having a hand value of 21 or as close to 21 as possible without going over.
- Betting: Before the game begins, each player places their bet. The dealer then deals two cards to each player and two cards to himself, with one card face up and one card face down.
- Player’s turn: The player can then choose to “hit” and receive additional cards in an attempt to improve their hand, or “stand” and keep their current hand. If the player’s hand value exceeds 21, they “bust” and lose the game.
- Dealer’s turn: Once all players have finished their turn, the dealer reveals their face-down card and hits or stands according to a set of predetermined rules. The dealer must hit if their hand value is 16 or less and must stand if their hand value is 17 or higher.
- Determine the winner: If the dealer busts, all remaining players win. If the dealer does not bust, the player with the hand value closest to 21 wins. If both the dealer and the player have the same hand value, it is a tie and the player’s bet is returned.
- Payouts: If the player wins, they receive a 1:1 payout on their bet. If the player has a blackjack (an ace and a 10-value card), they receive a 3:2 payout.
Blackjack is a popular card game typically played at casinos. The objective of the game is to get a hand value of 21 or close to 21, without going over. The hand value is determined by adding up the values of the individual cards in a player’s hand. Face cards (King, Queen, Jack) are worth 10 points, Aces can be worth 1 or 11 points, and all other cards are worth their face value.
As a player, when the dealer reveals an Ace as their upcard, you have the opportunity to purchase insurance to mitigate the potential risk of the dealer holding blackjack, even if you have a blackjack hand yourself. The insurance amount is equivalent to half of your initial bet and is resolved independently of your hand bet. The dealer then inspects the value of their downcard to determine if they have blackjack.
If the dealer does not have blackjack, play continues. If the dealer has blackjack and you do not, the dealer wins. In the case of both you and the dealer having blackjack, the game results in a tie, and your bet is returned. Please note, when the dealer’s upcard is a ten or face card, the option to purchase insurance is not offered, and the dealer will not check their downcard for blackjack.
Double Down, Hit or Stand
When the dealer’s initial two cards do not result in a blackjack, players are granted the opportunity to enhance their hand values in a clockwise rotation around the table.
If the value of your starting hand is not 21, you may opt to Double Down, thereby doubling your bet and receiving a single additional card to complete your hand. Alternatively, you may choose to Hit and receive additional cards to increase the value of your hand. You may take multiple hits before choosing to Stand, signifying satisfaction with your hand’s value.
As a player, if your initial hand consists of a pair of cards with equal values, you have the option to Split the pair and create two separate hands, each with a bet equal to your main bet. After two cards are dealt to each of your hands, you may improve their values by selecting the hit option before standing. However, if you split a pair of Aces as your initial hand, you will receive only one additional card per hand, with no option for hitting.
If the sum of your hand exceeds 21, you bust and lose your bet on that hand. When all players have taken their turns, the dealer reveals the value of his downcard. The dealer must hit on a hand of 16 or less and must stand on a hand of soft 17 or more.
You win when the value of your final hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s or when the dealer busts. If the value of your hand is the same as the dealer’s, the game round ends in a push and your bet is returned. Blackjack beats a hand of 21 comprised of three or more cards. Blackjack also beats a hand of 21 resulting from a split pair.
This Live Blackjack game includes optional side bets – Perfect Pairs and 21+3. You may place side bets in combination with your main blackjack bet. You have the chance to win on any side bet regardless of whether or not you later win on your blackjack bet.
