Signature Live Blackjack
When you play Blackjack online in this game you will use eight regular 52-card decks, valued as follows:
- Cards from 2 to 10 have face value
- All face cards (Jack, Queen, King) and the 10 card have a value of 10
- Depending on what will strengthen your hand more, Aces are worth either 1 or 11
A single card is dealt face-up once betting time has ended.
You will win Blackjack if your hand equates to 21, triggering a payout of 1.5x your initial wager.
It is only possible to buy insurance if the dealer's up-card is an Ace. This means you are protected against the possibility that they may have Blackjack, even if your first two cards are worth 21.
Should the dealer then reveal Blackjack, insurance bets will pay out at odds of 2:1.
The dealer will view their face-down card to see if they hold Blackjack.
- The round carries on as normal if they don't have Blackjack
- If the dealer has Blackjack and you don't, they will win
- If you and the dealer both have Blackjack, a 'push' occurs and you receive your stake back
Insurance is priced at exactly half of your main wager, and bets on this market are settled separately.
On any two initial cards, you can double down to multiply your stake by 2x, although if you choose this option you cannot be dealt more than one further card.
If you have split, the option to double down is unavailable.
If you 'hit' then another card is dealt, and this is added to your current hand.
You can hit an unlimited number of times until you exceed 21.
Select this option if you're happy with your hand, and you will not be dealt any further cards.
If the first two cards you are dealt have the same value, you can split them in two to create to separate hands, and they have the same stake as your initial bet.
Both hands will receive a second card which can both be 'hit', unless you split Aces in which case you can only be dealt one more card per hand.
Only one split per hand is possible.
If your hand exceeds 21, you 'bust' and the bet is lost.
The dealer's down card is revealed once every player has played their hand.
The dealer is required to:
- Hit - if their cards have a value of 16 or lower
- Stand - if their cards are worth a Soft 17 or above
If your final hand is closer to 21 than the dealer's, or if the dealer 'busts', your bet is settled as a winner.
If your hand is valued identically to the dealer's your bet will be refunded, as this is known as a 'push'.
If you have Blackjack (Ace and 10), it will always beat hands worth 21 that consist of at least three cards, as well as hands worth 21 that were formed via split pairs.
Use the side bet options in this game, and even if your main Blackjack bet loses you may still be a winner.
With this side bet, if your first two cards consist of any pair then your bet is a winner. This could be two Jacks, two Kings, two 8s etc.
In Signature Live Blackjack there are three available pair types on offer, each with different payouts:
Perfect Pairs Payouts
This side bet is won when your first two cards form any of the combinations below when added to the dealer's face-up card:
A different payout is linked to all of the above combinations.
This game round and any payouts are void in the event of malfunctions.
Bet on another player's hand with the Bet Behind option, and you will share their success or defeat.
These bets have the same payouts as standard Blackjack bets.
You can place a wager anywhere that has an activated Bet Behind spot at another player's seat. This must be done before betting time runs out.
If you place a Bet Behind bet and the player at that seat doesn't play in the round, your receive your wager back immediately.
The nickname shown at each seat refers to the player who chooses the decisions on that hand.
When the dealer's up-card is an ace, you will still be able to place insurance bets.
If your Bet Behind player doubles down or splits, you can double your wager.
You are not able to Bet Behind on your own hand.
It is not possible to prevent other players from betting behind you.
The 'Hot Players' icon shows the player on the longest winning streak at the table.
The number that is shown within the gold medal refers to the number of consecutive rounds that they have won.
When a 'Hot Player' loses a round, the gold medal icon vanishes.
Return to Player (RTP)
The optimal theoretical payout percentage is:
Blackjack – 99.28%.
Perfect Pairs bet – 95.90%.
21+3 bet – 96.30%.of wins.
The expected return to player is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.
For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out £99.28 of wins.
