As ever, the aim of the game is to produce a hand that is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, while all the standard features like doubling down, insurance and splitting are also available.
A unique feature on offer this game is the surrender option. This allows you to walk away from your hand after it has been dealt if you don’t think it will win - choosing this option will cost you half of your original wager.

How to Win Blackjack
A winning hand in blackjack is the hand that totals closest to 21.
You can make up 21 from any number of cards - an Ace with a 10 or a picture card is known as 'blackjack', and will beat any other hand.
Picture cards have a value of 10, while all other cards have the value as they appear. However, an Ace can be valued at either 1 or 11, depending on which score better helps your hand.
If your cards total the same numerical value as the dealer's hand then you will receive your stake back - this is better known as a 'push'.
If the first two cards you are dealt are of matching value then you have the option to split your hand.
This means that your original hand is split into two and you must bet the same stake again to cover them both.
You will have the option to double down after you have been given your first two cards.
If you choose to double down then you must match your existing stake for that hand - should you win the bet then you will be paid out at twice your total wager.
Should the dealer turn over blackjack after you have doubled down then your entire wager will be lost.
A unique feature of this game is that you can double down on any two cards. You will also have the chance to double down after splitting your original hand.
If the dealer's first card is an Ace then you will have the option to safeguard your hand against the possibility that the dealer has blackjack.
Taking out insurance will cost you half of your wager - so if you have bet £10, the insurance will cost you another £5. If the dealer does not have blackjack then you will lose your insurance bet and the hand will continue as normal.
The surrender option allows you to walk away from your hand after it has been dealt.
Should you choose to take this option then you will lose half of your original wager.
