    Signature Live Blackjack Game Overview 

    The chip sizes available in Signature Live Blackjack range from £1 to £500.


    How to Play

    Eight standard 52-card decks are used in Signature Live Blackjack.

    The values of each card are shown below:

    Signature Live Blackjack uses eight regular decks of 52 cards.

    The cards are valued as below:

    Card TypeValue
    Numbered Cards (2-10)Face value
    Face Cards (Jack, Queen, King)10
    Ace1 or 10 (whichever benefits the hand more)

    Once the betting period has expired, each player receives one card face-up.


    How to Achieve Blackjack

    Blackjack is won when the value of your initial two cards equals 21.

    Achieving a Blackjack hand is more valuable than reaching 21 in a hand of three or more cards.

    A Blackjack hand is also more valuable than a hand that is created from a 'Split' pair.

    Note - Blackjack awards 1.5x your initial bet.


    Insurance

    If the dealer's face-up card is an Ace, it is possible that they may have Blackjack when they receive their second card.

    To offset this risk, it is possible to buy insurance at 0.5x your main bet.

    Your main bet and the insurance bet are settled individually.

    If the dealer has Blackjack, then the insurance bet will payout at 2:1.

    The dealer wins if they have Blackjack but you do not.

    If the dealer does not have Blackjack, then the game will continue.

    A 'push' happens when you and the dealer both have Blackjack - your stake will be refunded when this happens.

     

    Double Down

    This option is available once your first two cards have been dealt.

    Opting to 'Double Down' will add one more card to your hand and double your stake.

    Note - you cannot 'Double Down' on a split hand.


    Hit 

    When you opt to 'Hit', another card will be added to your hand.

    This process can be repeated until the value of your hand is more than 21.


    Stand

    Once you select 'Stand', no more cards will be added to your hand.


    Split

    It is possible to 'Split' a hand if it is formed of two cards that are equal in value.

    Opting to 'Split' will separate the initial hand into two, separate hands - each hand will now have a separate bet that is the same value as your first bet.

    Each hand will receive another card so that there are two cards in each one.

    You may 'Hit' on both hands unless they were created from a split pair of Aces.

    You can only split a hand once.

     

    Outcome

    The aim of Signature Live Blackjack is to get closer to 21 than the dealer.

    Going over 21 will result in a bust.

    The dealer will reveal their second card once all players have shown theirs.

    If the dealer's hand equals 16 or less, they must 'Hit'.

    However, if their hand equals a soft 17 or more, they must 'Stand'.


    Side Bets

    Signature Live Blackjack offers several side bets that may be combined with your main bet.

     

    Perfect Pairs

    If your initial hand forms a pair of cards, then you may place a Perfect Pairs bet.

    There are three different types of pairs available.

    TypeDescriptionPays
    Mixed PairDifferent suits 6:1
    Coloured PairSame colour, different suits12:1
    Perfect PairSame suit and value25:1

    21+3

    It is possible to place a 21+3 side bet if your first two cards make one of the following outcomes when combined with the dealer's up-card.

    TypeDescriptionPays
    FlushSame suit5:1
    StraightIn numerical order but different suits10:1
    Three of a KindIdentical values but different suits30:1
    Straight FlushIn numerical order and the same suit40:1
    Suited TripsAn identical triplet100:1

    In the event of a malfunction, the round and payouts will be voided.


    Bet Behind 

    It is possible to 'Bet Behind' another player's hand so that you share their outcome.

    To bet behind a player, pick an active spot behind their seat before the betting period expires.

    The payouts in Bet Behind bets are the same as regular bets.

    Your stake is returned if your selected player does not play a round.

    If your selected player opts to 'Double Down' or 'Split', then you may choose to double your wager.

    You cannot stop other players from betting behind your hand.

    It is not possible to bet behind your own hand.


    Hot Player

    The 'Hot Players' icon signals the players with the longest winning streaks.

    The number of consecutive wins that a player has achieved will be highlighted in the number on the Hot Players icon.

    The Hot Players icon disappears once a Hot Player loses a round.


    Return to Player (RTP)

    The optimal theoretical payout percentage is:

    • Blackjack – 99.28%
    • Perfect Pairs bet – 95.90%
    • 21+3 bet – 96.30%

    The expected return to player is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.

    For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out £99.28 of wins.
