Live Blackjack is played in the same way as regular blackjack, so if you already know how it’s played, you can easily join a table and start playing right away.
The exact rules depend on the type of blackjack you are playing. It is a good idea to read through the rules before you start playing as we have numerous variations such as classic, speed, VIP and party.
Classic Live Blackjack is played by selecting a table and placing your bet. This game is provided by the game provider Evolution, which has lots of great features that also make the game easy to play and very intuitive.
In blackjack, the aim is to beat the dealer by getting the highest value card, without exceeding 21. Once you place your bet, you have to wait for the other players to place their bets as well before you get your first two cards. The dealer also deals two cards to himself; one card face up, the other face down. If you have a hand with an ace and a face card, you have blackjack and you win at odds of 3:2. If not, you can choose between the messages ‘stand’ ‘split’, ‘double down’ and ‘hit’.
You stand if you are happy with your hand as it is, or if you don’t want to risk getting more than 21 if you pick another card (this is called a ‘bust’). If you are not satisfied, you can call ‘hit’ and you get another card. If the hand value is still less than 21, you can again choose what to report. If you have exactly 21, it is automatically a ‘stand’, and if the value is over 21, it is a ‘bust’ and you lose your bet.
Split and double down are two special calls that you can only use in some cases. You can choose double down when you have been dealt your first two cards, and your bet will then be doubled. After that, you only get one card and can only choose ‘stand’. Split means you split a pair (two cards of the same rank) so you get two hands, and then will receive one card for each hand.
