All Blackjack players are sure to enjoy this version of Blackjack Multi-Hand. It allows players to take on the dealer with up to three hands at the same time. The game offers a number of special features such as the ability to accept an even money payout when the dealer is showing an Ace. Of course, it also offers all of the other standard features such as Split, Insurance and Double Down, to provide players with hours of fun.
At the start of a round, you need to place chips in the betting areas of the hands that you wish to play. When you are happy with your bets click on deal and each hand position will receive two face up cards and the dealer will receive one face up and one facedown.
The aim of the game is to build a hand that is as close to 21 in value as possible but without exceeding 21 and going bust. In Blackjack, Aces are worth 1 or 11, the picture cards (Jack, Queen and King) are worth 10, and the number cards are worth their face values. The best possible hand is known as Blackjack. It contains two cards, an Ace and a 10. No other hand will beat Blackjack, including those worth 21 but containing more than 2 cards.
You will then play each of your hands one hand at a time and there are three basic options for each hand:

To speed up the game play, there is a Rebet & Deal button that can be used between rounds to quickly start the next round. In the settings menu there are a large number of options. You can turn on or off the following: Keep Bust Hands, Always Offer Insurance, Always Offer Even Money, Show Collect Cards Animation, Auto Stand, and In-Game Warnings. This way you can customise the game to your needs.
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 (there by ensuring that you do not lose money on the hand), while hands that tie with the dealer are returned as a push.
