Game OverviewBlackjack is an exciting multi-hand Blackjack that allows you to play up to 3 simultaneous hands of Blackjack. Each hand plays only against the dealer (i.e. the bank), independently of other hands. Six (6) decks of cards are used to play. Your goal as the player is to draw cards (i.e. hit) until your hand adds up to 21, or comes as close as possible without exceeding 21. If your first two cards total 21, you have Blackjack.
Basic Blackjack RulesIf the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer's, you win as much as you have wagered. If you have Blackjack, you win 3 to 2 times your bet (assuming the dealer does not also have Blackjack). Aces count as either 1 or 11, dressed cards as 10, and remaining cards according to their number values. If the total of your cards exceeds 21, you bust and lose your wager. If you have the same card total as the dealer, from 17 and up, no one wins and you get your stake back in a so-called stand off. Blackjack beats a score of 21. The Blackjack game at our Casino follows the standard "Las Vegas Strip" rules, with the following exceptions: · The deck is shuffled after each round. · The player may split only once. · The player may double after splitting. · The dealer only checks for Blackjack if his open card is an Ace and insurance is taken.
Bonus Blackjack RulesThe objective to Bonus Blackjack is the same as any other variation of blackjack. Players want to make a hand that has a value of as close to 21 points as possible all the while having a hand more valuable then the dealer does. If a player goes over 21 the house wins and if the dealer goes over 21 (and the player doesn't) the player will win. Player blackjacks will also win automatically and be paid odds of 3 to 2 on their wagers. The value of each card in terms of points is very easy to determine. Aces are worth 1 point or 11 points, whichever benefits the player most. Picture cards such as jacks, queens and kings are worth 10 points each and the rest of the deck (2s thru 9s) is worth what they say they're worth. The game will start with players making one if not two wagers. One wager will be for the blackjack hand and the other wager will be for the bonus. Players can wager however much they like for the bonus. It doesn't matter if it's smaller or bigger than the wager for the blackjack hand. Once players make their wagers, they are then dealt their cards. In the event that they receive a natural blackjack that has an ace and a jack in it, they will be paid out odds of 5 to 2 on top of the standard 3 to 2 payout. A suited ace and a jack will payout odds of 25 to 1 and an ace and a jack of spades will payout odds of 50 to 1 on top of the 3 to 2 odds. All other blackjacks will earn only 3 to 2 odds on their wager. If players do not receive a blackjack with an ace and a jack, they will lose their bonus bet and the game will continue like normal.

SplitIf your first two cards are of the same value, you may split them into two separate hands, placing a second wager of equal value. You then proceed to draw cards as usual. However, if you split two Aces, you get only one additional card for each hand. If you split two Aces and one of your hands totals 21, this is not considered Blackjack, but 21.
DoubleWhen you have been dealt two cards, and think that a third card will give you a position to beat the dealer's hand, you can double. Your wager is doubled, and you are allowed to hit and receive just one additional card.
InsuranceInsurance is a game of its own within Blackjack, and gives you the chance to protect yourself when you believe that the dealer might have Blackjack. If the dealer's first card is an Ace, he is considered to have a fair chance of getting Blackjack. If you believe that the dealer's dark card is of value 10, you may buy insurance against dealer Blackjack at the price of half your initial bet. If the dealer does have Blackjack, the insurance pays 2 to 1, corresponding to the amount of your initial bet. If you have bought insurance, and the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose your insurance. Your initial bet is then settled by comparing your cards with the dealer's. Should you and the dealer both have Blackjack, the game results in a push.
Rules for the DealerThe dealer must draw cards until he has at least 17, and must stand at 17 or higher. If the dealer gets 16, he must take another card. The dealer may not decide whether or not to draw a card based on your hand, but must abide by the existing dealer rules.
