How to Play

Blackjack is one of the most popular casino card games in the world. It’s absorbing, challenging, exciting and easy to play. In Blackjack you play against the Dealer. To win your card total must be greater than the Dealer’s total, but not exceed 21.

How to Play

  • Each player places a bet in the betting areas marked on the layout. All Players receive two cards and the Dealer one.
  • The Players are asked in turn whether they wish to ‘draw’ another card or ‘stay’ with the total they have.
  • Once all Players have finished the Dealer draws cards to their hand.
  • The Dealer must draw a card if they have 16 or less. When the Dealer’s hand reaches a total of 17 or more they cannot draw another card.
  • All winning bets are paid even money with the exception of any Blackjacks.

When the first two cards dealt to your hand are a pair you may split them to create two separate hands, by placing an additional stake equal to the original bet.

Perfect Pair

Perfect pairs is an exciting new feature on Blackjack giving you the option to place an extra bet that your first two cards will be either a Perfect Pair (30-1), a Coloured Pair (10-1) or a Mixed Pair (5-1).


Perfect Pairs Progressive Blackjack is an addition to the standard Blackjack game. The layout will include a table chip sensor located the dealers side of each playing position available on the table.

To play the progressive side of the game the player must place the relevant stake (either £1 or £5) on the light sensor. This must be accompanied by a standard wager on the corresponding Blackjack box.

Only the player controlling the box can take part in the progressive game.

All players that decide to participate in the progressive game are eligible to win prizes from the jackpot meter.

Event Based Prizes

Event based prizes are concerned with the first two cards dealt to the player and for three of a kind hands this will include the dealer’s initial up card. If a qualifying hand is made, then the player will win the prize associated with that hand.

Wait for the current round of play to end and ask the croupier to buy-in for your desired amount (Different tables have different minimum bets). Money can’t be handed directly to the croupier, so place it on the table and the croupier will exchange for chips.

Spread-Bet Blackjack

Spread-Bet Blackjack is a licensed side bet for Blackjack. Working seamlessly alongside the traditional game, Spread-Bet Blackjack gives each player three new betting spots, which allow wagers to be placed on the sum of their first two cards. By adding the chance to win on a low value hand, Spread-Bet Blackjack adds an exciting twist to the game at an increased house edge.

How to Play

Spread-Bets are placed once the player has bought into the main game and before dealing commences. Winning and losing Spread-Bets are paid out/collected before the first player decides whether to receive another card.


The side bet can be incorporated into any Blackjack table that uses a continual card shuffler. No additional equipment is required other than a table layout that includes the pay table and betting spots for Spread-Bet Blackjack.


When calculating a player’s Spread-Bet Blackjack total, Aces are equal to 1.
