Classic Blackjack does exactly what the name suggests. It is a single hand version of the classic game that can bring you hours of entertainment and hopefully, some big winnings. The game is played with a single deck of cards that is shuffled between each round. It offers all of the features you could need such as Split, Double and Insurance, and it even offers a turbo mode for those who enjoy high-speed action.
The aim in Classic Blackjack is to build a hand of cards that has a value closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand, but without exceeding 21, which is called going bust. The cards in a hand determine its value. The number cards 2 to 10 are worth their face values, face cards (Jack, Queen and King) are all worth 10, and Aces can be 1 or 11. Therefore, a hand of 21 can be formed with just two cards, an Ace and a ten card. It is known as Blackjack and it is the strongest possible hand.
To start a round you need to place your bet and click on ‘Deal’. You then receive two face up cards and the dealer receives one face up card. You then have two main options:
When you have finished playing your hand, the dealer will play theirs. The dealer will always draw more cards until their hand is worth at least 17 and they will stand as soon as it is.
However, there are occasions when you will have more than the two options described above:
Blackjack has just one main bet and the insurance bet as described above. Thanks to this, betting on the game is very simple.
Those looking for fast-paced action can turn on turbo mode. This greatly speeds up the speed of play. There are also shortcuts to quickly replace bets, clear bets, deal the cards, and so on. You can also control the volume of the game sounds and the dealer voice.
All winning hands are paid out at 1:1, except for Blackjack, which pays at 3:2. A winning insurance bet pays at 2:1, while hands that tie with the dealer are returned as a push.
