How To Play
Like with all traditional Blackjack games, the aim of Lucky Lucky Blackjack is to build a hand of cards that is closer in value to 21 than the dealer's hand but without exceeding 21 and going bust. You can play up to five hands in one round and the game is played with six decks of cards.
In Blackjack the numbered cards are worth their face values, the face cards are worth 10 and Aces are worth either 1 or 11. The most valuable hand is Blackjack, an Ace and a ten card.
At the start of each round you need to place chips in the betting areas belonging to the hands that you wish to play. At this point, you can also place the Lucky Lucky Side Bet. You will then receive two cards to each hand and the dealer will receive a face-up card and a facedown card. For each hand you then have the choice whether to ‘Hit', ‘Stand' or ‘Double'. Selecting ‘Hit' will draw another card to the hand, selecting ‘Stand' will leave the hand as it is and selecting ‘Double' will double your bet and deal one more card.
At the end of a round winning hands are paid at 2:1 except Blackjack which is paid out at 3:2.
There are occasions when you will have more options. For instance, if your first two cards have the same value then you can ‘Split' the hand. This splits the hand into two and you can play them as individual hands. Another option is ‘Insurance'. If the dealer's face-up card is an Ace you can take out insurance against him having Blackjack. Insurance costs half of your initial bet and if the dealer does have Blackjack then you are paid out at 2:1 on the insurance.
If you manage to build a hand of ten cards without going bust it is called a 10-Card Charlie. In this case, you will always win as long as the dealer doesn't have Blackjack.
Lucky Lucky Side Bet
At the start of each round you can place a side bet on your first two cards and the dealer's face-up card forming a winning combination. There are eight possible winning combinations each with its own payout:
