Multi-Hand Blackjack offers up to 3 hands of Blackjack in which you try to beat the Dealer by accumulating a card value total close to, but not over, 21 points. Also available are Bonus Bets that award you a big prize if you are dealt a Blackjack.
Start by placing your wagers. You can wager on any or all of the three hand positions. You can wager on a standard Blackjack hand, as well as the Bonus Bet. You can even place a wager on the Bonus Bet alone if you like. (See How To Wager for more details.)
After placing your bets, click the DEAL button to start play.
You receive two cards, both face up, for each position on which you have a wager. The Dealer receives two cards, one face down and one face up.
All face cards are worth 10, Aces are worth either 1 or 11, and all other cards are worth their face value. A Blackjack occurs when the card value total of a hand®s first two cards sums to 21 by getting an Ace and a 10 value card. A split hand leading to a two card value total of 21 is not a Blackjack. (See Split below for more details.)
The Bonus Bet is available independently of each main bet. In other words, you are not required to place a wager in the larger "Bet" circle in order to place a "Bonus Bet" wager. If you receive a Blackjack on a hand on which you placed a Bonus Bet, then you win!
Before normal Blackjack hand play commences, each winning Bonus Bet plays out. An award display appears, cycling through possible award values. Click on the BONUS button to display your award. Awards range from 5 to 1000 times your Bonus Bet. You receive your Bonus Bet award irrespective of the Dealer®s hand and irrespective of the outcome of your main bet.
If a Blackjack is not dealt to a given hand, any corresponding Bonus Bet is forfeited.
Playing a Hand of Blackjack
After you place your wagers and click DEAL, cards are dealt to each of your hands and to the Dealer.
If the Dealer®s face up card is an Ace, you are offered Insurance, which you can accept or decline. If you accept, this automatically places another wager equal to half of your original wager. After Insurance Bets are accepted or declined, then the Dealer®s face down card is checked. If the Dealer has Blackjack, then each Insurance Bet is paid 2 to 1 and the game ends. If the Dealer does not have Blackjack, then each Insurance Bet is forfeited and play proceeds.
If the Dealer®s face up card is a 10 value card, then the Dealer®s face down card is also checked for Blackjack, but no Insurance Bet is offered beforehand. Early checking for Dealer Blackjack is a big advantage for the player since it eliminates risking additional double down wagers and split wagers that would otherwise be lost to a late-revealed Dealer Blackjack!
If the Dealer®s hand is a Blackjack, then all main bets are forfeited, and the game ends. The exception is when you also have a Blackjack, which is a push, and your wager for that hand is returned.
If the Dealer®s hand is not a Blackjack, then you get to play out each of your dealt hands. If you are dealt a Blackjack on the first two cards in a hand and the Dealer does not also have a Blackjack, then this hand is an automatic winner and is immediately paid at 3 to 2. If the Dealer does not have Blackjack you are given the opportunity to try to improve the outcome of your hand. Depending on the cards you hold, you may choose one of the following options:
HIT - You request an additional card. You can continue to request additional cards until you decide to stand or until your card value total is 21 (automatic stop) or until you bust by receiving a card that causes your card value total to exceed 21. If you bust, that hand loses and your main bet is forfeited.
STAND - You request no further cards and play this hand against the Dealer®s hand.
SPLIT - If the first two cards in a hand are of the same value, you may click SPLIT to split your cards into two separate hands, which also places an additional wager equal to the original main bet. When Aces are split, only one further card may be dealt to each Ace. A split hand leading to a two card value total of 21 is not a Blackjack. Only one split is allowed per hand -- resplitting is not allowed.
DOUBLE DOWN - On the first two cards in a hand, you may click DOUBLE DOWN to automatically double your original main bet and receive exactly one additional card. If you split any cards other than Aces, you may also double down on the first two cards of either or both split hands. This is not offered if the card value total of the first two cards is 21.
The card value total is displayed on circular plaques adjacent to each hand. As cards are dealt to a hand, the plaque displays an updated card value total. When your hand holds an Ace and the plaque flashes the card value total and the word Soft, the value displayed is based on counting the Ace as an 11 rather than a 1 (for example, a 5 and an Ace are shown as a Soft 16).
When comparing your hand versus the Dealer®s hand, Aces are evaluated such that they represent the highest possible card value total not exceeding 21.
After all of your hands have been played, the Dealer®s face down card is revealed. If any of your hands need to be compared against the Dealer's hand (in other words, at least one hand isn®t a bust or a Blackjack) then the Dealer®s hand is played out. Otherwise, the Dealer®s down card is revealed, and the game is concluded.
If the Dealer®s card value total is 16 or lower, additional cards are dealt until the card value total is 17 or higher. If the Dealer®s card value total exceeds 21, then the Dealer busts and any of your standing hands win. Otherwise, the Dealer's card value total is compared against each of your hands. In the case of a tie, this is a push and your wager for that hand is returned.
If the Dealer®s face up card is an Ace, you can place an Insurance Bet on any hand with a main bet. If you are only playing one hand, you are asked whether you want to take an Insurance Bet for that hand. If you are playing two or more hands, then in addition to being able to accept or decline the Insurance Bet for the first hand, you can also accept or decline Insurance Bets for all of your hands at the same time by clicking on YES TO ALL or NO TO ALL.
Each Insurance Bet, if accepted, is half of the corresponding main bet.
Once Insurance Bets are accepted or declined, the Dealer checks for Blackjack. If the Dealer has a Blackjack, then each Insurance Bet is paid at 2 to 1; if the Dealer does not have Blackjack, then each Insurance Bet is forfeited.
Insurance Bets are not offered when only a Bonus Bet is made.
