The Game

The game’s goal in Classic Blackjack is to beat the dealer by achieving a hand value of either 21 or less than 21 but more significant than the dealer’s hand.


Eight standard decks of cards are used, re-shuffled after each round. Each deck is made up of 4 suits;

  • Hearts
  • Clubs
  • Spades
  • Diamonds

Each suit has 13 cards. Each card has a numeric value, as shown below;

2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10, J, Q K A
2 3 5 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 & 11

Ace can be used as 1 or 11. A hand that includes an Ace has two values, a complex value, and a soft value, and can be played either. E.g., if the hand contains an Ace and a 7, the hand can be played as either a hard eight or a soft 18.


Blackjack A two-card hand dealt during the first deal, whose value is 21.
Bust A hand that exceeds 21 and therefore loses. When a player hand Busts, the hand immediately loses regardless of the dealer’s hand result.
Double Down (Player hands only). If you Double Down, you are betting that your hand can be won with one more card. Double Downs cannot be used on a Blackjack hand. You can only Double Down on the first two cards in your hand. After that, the original bet is doubled (a second chip appears), and you receive one more card.
Hit Take another card (on hands where you do not have Blackjack). You can Hit as often as desired until you Stand or Bust.
Push A tie, where the player’s hand and the dealer’s hand have the same value.
Split (Player hands only). If you are dealt two cards of the same value (e.g., two 6’s or a King and Queen), the hand can be split into two separate hands.
Stand Refuse any more cards (on hands where you do not have Blackjack).

How to Play

  • Select the value of your chips. The currency will reflect the currency of your account. To select a chip value, click on the chip of the value you require. The following chip values are available: 10, 50, 100,250, 500, 10k and 10k. By default, the five chip is selected.
  • There are five betting spots available on the table, and you can bet on as many of these as you wish. Place your chips on a betting spot by clicking on it. Each click will place a chip of the selected value on the spot. Different chip values may be used by changing your chip selection.
  • Once you are happy with your selection, click on the Deal button, and your bet(s) will be placed.

Two cards are dealt; face up to each of the betting spots you selected. The dealer also has two cards, the first face down the second face up. If any of your hands have a total value of 21, e.g., a ten and an Ace, it is deemed a ‘natural Blackjack,’ the highest hand. Your hand will be immediately marked as a Blackjack and will not be included in further play as you cannot beat it.
