How to Win Blackjack
A winning blackjack hand is the one that totals closest to 21, without going over it.
An Ace paired with a 10 or picture card in your original hand is called blackjack, which pays out at winnings of 150% your bet.
The picture cards have a score of 10, while all the other cards score their respective numbers.
However, an Ace is more flexible as it can score 1 or 11, depending on which score better benefits your hand.
If your hand holds the same numerical value as the dealer’s you will receive your bet back, unless one hand includes an Ace and a picture card, in which case it wins.
There are many different variants to blackjack with most versions varying very slightly.
The features of Vegas Downtown Blackjack are shown below.
If you receive two cards of the same value you will be given the opportunity to split your hand.
This means that your one hand can be split into two, although you must double your bet in order to do this.
Doubling down gives you the chance to double your original bet after seeing your first two cards.
After choosing the double down option you can only draw one more card.
If you opt to double down and win, you will be paid out for your entire doubled stake.
If the dealer gets blackjack after you have split or doubled, your entire wager is lost.
If the dealer’s first card is an Ace, you can protect your hand by choosing to buy insurance from the dealer.
The insurance bet will cost you half of your original wager, so if your initial bet was £10, your insurance will cost you another £5 on top of that.
Insurance will only cover your original wager; it will not cover your bet if you choose to double down.
Return to Player
Return To Player (RTP): 99.62%.
The expected return 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 £99.62 of wins.
This return is based on the player making the right choices.
