Blackjack

OBJECTIVE

Player wins if he/she reaches an accumulated value of cards which is equal or lower than 21 and higher than the accumulated value of the dealer's cards; OR if the dealer busts- when dealer's accumulated cards value exceeds 21; OR if player gets a Charlie- a hand which reaches 7 cards without busting (accumulated value exceeding 21).

CARDS VALUES

Cards from 2 through 10 are valued as their numbers indicate.

Face cards J, Q, and K are all valued at 10.

An A (reads as Ace) card counts as 1 or 11: If scoring an 11 cause your hand value to exceed 21 (bust), it would count as 1.

NUMBER OF HANDS

If you play on your smartphone you can play up to three hands simultaneously.

HOW TO PLAY:

• Select the hand you want to play on by pressing on circular bet position;

• Select the amount you want to bet on a given hand by tapping on the chip of the selected denomination and repeating this action until you reach the desired amount;

• Tap the CLEAR BETS buttons to clear the entire amount wagered;

• Once the bets are placed click the DEAL button to get your cards;

• To repeat the bet of a previous game, click on the REBET button;

• To double and repeat the previous bet, click on REBETx2 button;

PLAYING OPTIONS

• Click STAND to stop receiving cards. You may stand at any time;

• HIT: Click HIT to receive the next card. You may continue to take cards until you either stand, bust (your cards' value exceeds 21), reach a cards' value of 21, or get a 7-Card Charlie;

• DOUBLE: After you receive your first two cards, you may double down by clicking the DOUBLE button. Once this is selected the bet amount is doubled and you will be dealt one more card and then stand;

• SPLIT: If you have two cards of the same value, you can click SPLIT to separate the cards. The two hands then receive one more card each and the new hand receives the same bet amount as the first hand's. You are only allowed to split once. You may draw as many cards as you wish on each split hand, with the exception of splitting AA. If you split AA, only one card will be dealt to each A hand. If a 10 valued card is dealt to either A, the hand is counted as 21, not blackjack. DOUBLE is not available after splitting AA;

• INSURANCE is offered when the dealer’s first card is an A. It gives you a chance to halve your downside in case the dealer gets a BlackJack. You can insure your hand by clicking YES below the INSURANCE? label. Insurance costs 50% of the hand's bet. When insurance is selected the insurance amount will be displayed beside the initial bet. In case the dealer gets a BlackJack, the insurance bet pays 2:1, and you will lose the initial hand bet. If the dealer does not get BlackJack, you will lose the insurance bet and the game will continue for the initial hand bet. You will not be offered insurance if you have BlackJack.
