How to Play
Play with up to five hands at a time as you aim to beat the dealer in this fast-paced casino classic.
The prime aim of any blackjack game is to try to beat the dealer by accumulating a total hand value close to, but not over, 21 points.
You will need to draw cards until your hand totals 21, or comes as close as possible without exceeding it.
If your first two cards total 21 - an Ace paired with a 10 or picture card - then you have won blackjack.
A player who stands chooses not to receive any additional cards.
Any hand that exceeds 21 goes bust and will lose regardless of the dealer’s hand.
The dealer must draw on 16 and will always stand on 17.
If the dealer’s hand totals the same as the player’s then the hand is a ‘push’, which will see the player’s bet returned to them.
The minimum bet in Multihand Blackjack is £1 and the maximum is £5,000.
Values of the Cards
An Ace may have a value of either 1 or 11, with the card adopting the value that is of most benefit to your hand.
The cards 2-9 are taken at face value.
The 10, Jack, Queen and King are all valued at 10.
How to Bet
To place your bet, simply choose your desired chip from the rack at the bottom and then place it in the required box on the casino table.
Select chip size - the chip sizes available in Multihand Blackjack are £1, £5, £25, £100 and £500
Placing bets - place your bet by clicking within a bet box with your chosen chip size
Removing bets - click ‘Undo’ to remove the last chip that you placed
Clear bets - click ‘Clear Bets’ to remove all of the chips from the table
Deal - clicking ‘Deal’ will start the game with the initial cards being dealt to you and the dealer. You will receive two cards face-up
Hit - clicking ‘Hit’ will add another card to the hand already in play
Stand - clicking ‘Stand’ will end the play on your current hand
Repeat and deal - click ‘Repeat and Deal’ to repeat your bet from the previous game
Let ‘em ride - click ‘Let ‘em Ride’ to wager your winnings from the previous game. This option will not be available if you took out insurance on your previous game
Splitting - if you receive two cards of the same value you will have the option to split your hand, which will divide your hand into two hands. When splitting, you must place a bet on the second hand that is equal to the amount wagered on your original bet
Only matching face cards can be split in Multihand Blackjack.
So a Queen paired with a Jack in your first two cards could not be split.
If you split Aces and then draw a card with a value of 10, this will not be counted as blackjack. This hand will have a value of 21, but will lose to the dealer if they draw blackjack.
Double down - this allows you to double your original bet. After doubling you will only receive one more card - this can only be done if your initial two cards total 9, 10 or 11
Insurance - if the dealer’s first card is an Ace, you will have the option to safeguard your hand by buying insurance. This will cost you half of your original wager - if the dealer does draw blackjack, your insurance will pay out at 2:1 with your original wager lost
If the dealer does not have blackjack, you will lose your insurance bet and the hand will continue as normal.
The available payouts in Multihand Blackjack are shown below.
- Winning Hand - 1:1
