Blackjack Multihand VIP is an exciting variant of the game that allows high rollers to bet big and play up to seven hand positions simultaneously. The game is played with six decks of cards and it offers all the features that you need, including the ability to double down, split hands, take out insurance and even surrender weak hands. It is a fast-paced game that is sure to provide players with hours of fun.
At the start of a round, you need to place your chips in the betting areas of the hands that you wish to play. When you are happy with your bets, click on Deal to start the round. You will receive two face up cards to each hand position and the dealer will receive one face up card and one facedown.
The aim for each position is to build a hand of cards that has a value as close to 21 as possible. The number cards are worth their face values, the picture cards are worth 10 and aces are worth 1 or 11. The best hand is called Blackjack, it is an ace and a 10 card and it will beat all other hands.
You then play each of your hands one at a time. There are four basic options for each hand:

When you have finished playing your hands the dealer will play. The dealer will always draw until 16 and stand on all 17s.
The basic betting in Blackjack is very simple, there is just the main Ante bet placed at the start of each round, and occasionally the players can also place an Insurance bet.
The game does not offer many special features as such, but there are a number of controls that speed up the gameplay. Between each round, you can quickly place the same bet and redeal the cards. There is also a history view at the top of the table showing the dealer’s last five hands.
Furthermore, a special red card is placed in the shoe after three decks of 52 cards. When the red card is drawn the decks are shuffled before the next game begins.
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 (thereby ensuring that you do not lose money on the hand), while hands that tie with the dealer are returned as a push.
