Live Blackjack

Enjoy a range of exciting side bets on our classic live casino game, Live Blackjack.

    Live Blackjack Game Overview

    A live dealer hosts all of our Live Blackjack tables, permitting a maximum of seven players to play at any one time.

    The game is played with eight regular 52-card decks, and they have the values listed below: with the following card values:

    - Cards from 2 to 10 are worth their face value

    - All Face cards are valued at 10

    - Depending on which is more beneficial to your hand, Aces can be worth either 1 or 11.

    The dealer will deal one card face up to each player in the game when the betting period has closed.


    You have Blackjack if your hand is equal to precisely to 21, which pays out at 1.5x your initial bet.


    If the dealer's face up hand is showing an Ace, you are given the opportunity to buy insurance, which can guard you against the possibility of the dealer having Blackjack, and this costs half of your stake.

    Should the dealer get Blackjack you are refunded your entire bet, but if he doesn't your insurance is lost and the hand proceeds as normal.

    Double Down, Hit or Stand

    Once you've been dealt two cards, you can improve your initial hand through a Double Down, Hit or Stand.

    - Double Down will double your original bet, and you receive a solitary card in exchange.

    - 'Hit' will deal you another card to add to your hand, which can be done as many times as you like until you either 'Stand' when you are happy with your hand's value.

    - 'Stand' means you are satisfied with your cards, and you take no further action after this.


    Should the initial hand result in you being dealt pairs of the same value, you can split the pair to form two new separate hands, though you then have to place another stake of equal value to cover the new hand.

    After a second card is dealt to both your new hands, you can improve the value of the two hands by hitting until you are happy to stand.

    However, if the cards that were split were Aces, then you will only receive one additional card per hand with no option to hit again.

    Side Bets

    Live Blackjack includes optional side bets such as Perfect Pairs and 21+3, exactly as you would find in Casino Blackjack.

    Perfect Pairs

    This gives you the opportunity to win if your first two cards comprise any pair, and three different types of pairs are available with a different payout being offered by each one.

    Perfect PairSame suit
    Coloured PairDifferent suits of the same colour
    Mixed PairDifferent suits


    The 21+3 bet gives you the chance to win if your first two cards plus the dealer’s upcard comprise any of the following winning combinations:

    Suited TripsAn identical triplet (e.g) 3 Queens of Hearts
    Straight FlushIn numerical sequence and the same suit
    Three of a KindSame value but different suits
    StraightIn numerical sequence but different suits
    FlushSame suit

    Bet Behind

    With the Bet Behind feature, you are able to place wagers on one of the other player's hands.

    You will share the same outcome as the other player, and receive payouts for the wager in the same way as the standard bets.

    Hot Player

    See which of the other players is on a winning streak via the 'Hot Player' icon.

    The number indicated within the gold medals corresponds to the amount of consecutive wins the player has landed.

    Once they've lost a hand, the 'hot player' surrenders their status as such.


    Blackjack pays 3 to 2, while a winning hand pays 1 to 1, and insurance awards 2 to 1 should the dealer have Blackjack.

    Multi-Game Play

    You can join up to four different game tables at the same time and view them all in the same browser window, meaning the action will be continuous for you.

    Once you've joined a number of tables, you will not be able to resize each game table window separately, but you will be able to resize your browser window as a whole.
