How To Play
The basic aim in All Bets Blackjack is the same as any other Blackjack game, to build a hand of cards that is as close in value to 21 as possible but without exceeding it and going bust. As long as your hand is close to 21 than the dealer’s is then you have won the round.
In Blackjack the numbered cards are worth their face values, the face cards are all worth 10 and the Aces are worth either 1 or 11. The most valuable hand is ‘Blackjack’, an Ace and a ten card, and it will beat all other hands.
First you need to place your bets on the hands that you wish to play. Then click on ‘Deal’ to receive your first two face- up cards to each hand. At the same time, the dealer will be dealt one face-up card and one facedown. For each active hand you have three main options, ‘Hit’, ‘Stand’ and ‘Double’. Choosing ‘Hit’ will draw another card to the hand, choosing ‘Stand’ leaves the hand as it is and if you choose ‘Double’ your bet will be doubled, you’ll receive one more card and the dealer will then play his round.
At the end of a round, winning hands are paid at 2:1 except Blackjack, which is paid out at 3:2.
In some scenarios more betting options are offered. When the dealer’s face-up card is an Ace then you can take out ‘Insurance’ against the dealer having Blackjack. Insurance costs half of your initial bet and if the dealer does have Blackjack then you are paid out at 2:1. If your two first cards have the same value then you can ‘Split’ them into two separate hands. You can then play them as individual hands giving you more opportunities to win.
As mentioned All Bets Blackjack offers six exciting side bets, each of which can result in some huge rewards.
A Top 3 side bet is a bet on the dealer’s first face-up card and the player’s first two cards forming a Suited Three of a Kind, a Straight Flush of a Three of a King combination. A Suited Three of a Kind pays at 500:1, a Straight Flush pays at 180:1 and Three of a Kind pays at 90:1.
The Perfect Pairs side bet is on the player’s first two cards forming either a Perfect Pair, a Coloured Pair or a Red/Black Pair. A Perfect Pair is two cards of the same suit and value, a Coloured Pair is two cards of the same value and colour, but from different suits, a Red/Black Pair is two cards of the same value but different suits and colours. The Perfect Pair pays at 25:1, the Coloured Pair pays at 12:1 and the Red/Black Pair pays at 6:1.
The Buster Blackjack side bet is on the dealer going bust. The more cards in the dealer’s hand when he busts, the bigger the payout. If the dealer goes bust with 3 or 4 cards it pays at 2:1, with 5 cards it pays at 4:1, with 6 cards it pays at 18:1, with 7 cards it pays at 50:1 , with 8 or more cards it pays at 250:1. If he goes bust with 7 cards and you have Blackjack it pays at 800:1 and if he goes bust with 8 or more cards and you have Blackjack then it pays at 2000:1.
The Progressive Blackjack side bet pays out when you get one of the winning card combinations. To win the progressive jackpot you need to get four consecutive Aves of the same suit. Getting three suited Aces pays out 5000x, four unsuited Aces pays out 2500x, three unsuited Aces pays out 250x, two suited Aces pays 100x, two unsuited Aces pays 50x and one Ace pays 5x.
The Lucky Lucky side bet pays when the player’s first two cards and the dealer’s first card form a Suited 777, a Suited 678, an Unsuited 777, an Unsuited 678, a Suited 21, an Unsuited 21, an Any 20 or an Any 19. The Suited 777 pays 200:1, the Suited 678 pays 100:1, an Unsuited 777 pays 50:1, an Unsuited 678 pays 25:1, a Suited 21 pays 15:1, an Unsuited 21 pays 3:1, an Any 20 pays 2:1 and Any 19 pays 2:1.
The 21+3 side bet pays if your initial two cards and the dealer’s first card form a Flush, Straight, Three of a Kind, Straight Flush or Suited Three of a Kind combination. A Suited Three of a Kind pays 100:1, a Straight Flush pays 40:1, a Three of a Kind pays 30:1, a Straight pays 10:1 and a Flush pays 5:1.
