Blackjack Single Hand VIP

Blackjack Single Hand VIP is a deluxe Blackjack variant that will give you the impression of sitting in a luxury casino room. It is played with eight decks of cards that are shuffled between each round. It offers all the features one could need, such as Insurance and Splitting, while the dealer will not check for Blackjack. The game sees the dealer stand on all 17s and it offers the option to take Even Money when you have Blackjack.



Game Flow

Blackjack Single Hand VIP is very easy to learn. The aim is to build a hand of cards that is as close in value to 21 as possible but without exceeding it and going bust. At the end of a round, if your hand is closer in value to 21 than the dealer’s is, then you win.

When determining the value of a hand, the number cards 2 to 10 are worth their face values, Jack, Queen and King are all worth 10, and Aces are worth 1 or 11. This means that it is possible to form 21 with just two cards, an Ace and a ten card, this is known as Blackjack and it is the strongest hand. It will also beat all hands worth 21 that are comprised of more than two cards.

To start a round, place your bet and click on ‘Deal’. You will then receive two face up cards while the dealer receives one face up and one face down. There are then three basic options for your hand:

  • Stand – Your hand remains as is and play moves to the dealer.
  • Hit – You receive another card, if you don’t bust then you may Hit or Stand again.
  • Double – This is only available after receiving your first two cards. Your bet is doubled, you receive one more card, and then the hand stands.

Occasionally you will be offered additional options:

  • Split - If your first two cards have the same value then you can Split them into two hands. This will double your bet and then you play the two hands independently. However, if you split Aces then each hand receives just one more card. Furthermore, split hands cannot form Blackjack, only a hand worth 21.
  • Insurance – If the dealer’s face up card is an Ace, you can take out insurance against the dealer having Blackjack. Insurance costs half of your original bet and pays out if the dealer has Blackjack.
  • Even Money – This is what sets this game apart. You can choose this when you have Blackjack and the dealer’s face-up card is an Ace. If you take Even Money, you win even money on your initial bet rather than the more generous Blackjack payout. Even if the dealer has Blackjack, you win instead of receiving a push.

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.

Bets Explained

Blackjack features just the Ante bet and the occasional insurance bet, making the game very simple and easy to learn.

Special Features

A number of options in the settings menu allow you to customise this game. You can set it to keep bust hands displayed, to always offer Insurance, to turn the Even Money option on or off, to automatically stand on high value hands, and to show warnings about hitting on high value hands. You can also control the game’s sounds and animations.

Payouts

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 (ensuring that you do not lose money on the hand), while hands that tie with the dealer are returned as a push.
