Blackjack Multi-Hand VIP is an exciting variant of the game that allows you to play up to three hands simultaneously and it has higher betting limits to accommodate high rollers. The game offers all the features you would expect to find, such as the ability to split hands, double down and take out insurance. It takes place in a luxurious environment, and is guaranteed to provide hours of fun.
Blackjack Multi-Hand VIP is played with eight decks of cards that are shuffled between each round. The aim is to put together a hand that has a value as close to 21 as possible but without exceeding 21 and going bust. In this version, you can play up to three hands simultaneously and if any of your hands are closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand is at the end of a round, those hands will win a payout.
In Blackjack, the number cards 2 to 10 are worth their face values, the picture cards (Jack, Queen and King) are all worth 10, and Aces can be worth 1 or 11. This means you can form 21 with just an Ace and a ten card. This is called Blackjack; it is the strongest possible hand and always beats all others, even those worth 21 but containing more than 2 cards.
To start a round place your chips in the hand positions that you want to play and click on Deal. Each of your hands will then receive two face up cards while the dealer receives one face up card and one face down. You will then play one hand at a time and there are three basic options for each hand:
Sometimes one of the following options may be offered:
When you have finished playing your hand the dealer will play. The dealer will always draw more cards until the hand is worth at least 17 and will stand as soon as it is worth 17 or more.
One of the reasons why Blackjack is so simple is that there is just one bet, the ante bet. Occasionally you will have the option of placing an Insurance bet, but this is not integral to the game.
There are a number of features available that allow you to customise the game to your needs. You can set the game to warn you if you are about to hit on a high value hand. Similarly, you can set it to automatically stand on high value hands. It is also possible to turn on or off the Insurance and Even Money options. You will also be able to control the sound effects.
All winning hands are paid out at 1:1, except for Blackjack, which pays at 3:2 (unless you accept Even Money, in which case it pays at 1:1). A winning insurance bet pays at 2:1 (ensuring that you do not lose money on the hand), while hands that tie with the dealer are returned as a push.
