Free Bet Blackjack

Choose from four marvellous side bets in Free Bet Blackjack for a chance to win 250x your bet!

    Free Bet Blackjack Game Overview

    Free Bet Blackjack features 'Double Down' and 'Split' bets for an exciting twist.

    Aim of the Game 

    The aim of Free Bet Blackjack is to get as close as possible to 21, without going bust.

    If you get closer than the dealer, then you win!

    An unlimited number of players can join the game.

    Insurance Bet

    This wager can be placed when the dealer's upcard is an Ace.

    Placing an Insurance Bet can offset the risk that the dealer will then reveal Blackjack.

    An Insurance Bet costs half of your primary wager and will be considered as a separate wager.

    You can place an Insurance Bet even if you have Blackjack.

    If the dealer reveals Blackjack, then they will win and the game is over.

    If they don't have Blackjack, then the game will continue.

    If you and the dealer both have Blackjack then a 'push' will be declared and your wager will be returned.

    Double Down and Free Double

    If the dealer doesn't have Blackjack, then you can pick from the following options: Double Down, Hit or Stand.

    You will only be able to Double Down if you don't have Blackjack.

    Choosing Double Down will increase the value of your original wager by 2x.

    If your first two cards equal nine, ten or 11, then you will receive a 'Free Double' which will add a 'Free Bet' to your original bet.

    The value of the Free Bet will be equal to your original wager.

    Losing the round will forfeit the original wager.

    If a push is declared then only the original wager will be returned.

    Hit & Stand

    'Hit' will increase the number of cards in your hand by one. 

    You can opt for this option as many times as you wish.

    'Stand' will freeze your hand, so no new cards are added.

    Split and Free Split

    You can separate two cards that are of equal value so that two individual hands are created.

    Each hand will have its own wager.

    You can use a 'Free Split' if the first two cards are not two 10's.

    The first hand will keep the original wager, while the second will receive a 'Free Bet'.

    The value of the Free Bet will match the value of the original wager if you win.

    Bets will be lost if a push is declared.


    You will lose if the value of your hand exceeds 21.

    The dealer must Hit if their hand equals 16 or less.

    If their hand equals soft 17 or greater, they must Stand.

    You will receive your wager back if the value of the dealer's hand is the same value as your hand.

    Six Card Charlie Rule

    If you have six cards that combine to equal 21 or less, then the Six Card Charlie rule will apply.

    This rule can be applied even if the dealer declares Blackjack.

    If the dealer declares Blackjack after an Insurance Bet was offered, then you won't be able to use the Six Card Charlie rule.

    Side Bets

    Free Bet Blackjack has four side bets available to choose from: Any Pair, 21+3, Hot 3 and Bust It.

    Side bets are placed in addition to the Blackjack bet and can be won even if the main bet is lost.

    Any Pair Side Bet

    The Any Pair side bet can be won if your first two cards are of the same value.

    You can either form a general Pair or a Suited Pair - each option will have its own payout.

    21+3 Side Bet

    The 21+3 side bet can be won if your initial two cards plus the dealer's upcard form one of the following combinations:

    • Suited Trips – a Three of a Kind that is of the same suit
    • Straight Flush – cards of the same suit that are in numerical order 
    • Three of a Kind – cards that are equal in value but of different suits
    • Straight – in numerical order but different suits
    • Flush – cards in the same suit that are in any order

    Each combination has a different payout.

    Hot 3 Side Bet

    The Hot 3 side bet can be won if your initial hand plus the dealer's upcard form one of the following combinations:

    • Total 19 
    • Total 20 
    • Total 21 suited 
    • Total 21 unsuited 
    • 7-7-7 

    Each combination has a different payout. 

    Bust It Side Bet

    The Bust It side bet can be won if the dealer's hand goes bust.

    Each winning combination has a different payout:

    • Bust with 3 cards.
    • Bust with 4 cards.
    • Bust with 5 cards.
    • Bust with 6 cards.
    • Bust with 7 cards.
    • Bust with 8 or more cards

    This bet ends in a push if your hand equals Blackjack.


    • Blackjack pays 3:2.
    • Winning hand pays 1:1.
    • If the dealer has blackjack, insurance pays 2:1.
