    9 Up Blackjack Game Overview

    The bet sizes in this game range from £1 to £120.

    Aim of the Game

    The aim of 9 Up Blackjack is to get closer to 21 than the dealer, without going bust.


    This game uses eight standard decks of cards.

    The value of each card is as follows:

    • Ace - 1 or 11, whichever helps your hand more
    • 10, Jack, Queen, King - 10
    • 2-9 - these are taken at face value

    How to Play

    To start, you will have two cards in your hand. 

    If your first two cards equal 21, then you have won Blackjack!

    If your first two cards total less than 21, then you can choose to draw cards until the total is closer.

    Deciding to 'Stand' will signal that you don't want to receive any more cards.

    You must always 'Stand' if your initial hand equals 17 or more, and 'Draw' if it equals 16.

    The Dealer will also 'Stand' on soft or hard 17.

    Double Down

    You can choose to 'Double Down' on any pair of cards and double the value of your wager.

    You may choose to 'Double Down' after splitting a hand.


    If your first two cards are identical, you may 'Split' them into two separate hands.

    One more card will be added to each hand.

    You may 'Split' up to three times to make four hands in total - Aces can only be 'Split' once.

    It is not possible to win Blackjack with a pair of split Aces.


    Insurance is available in this game


    If your hand equals the same as the Dealer's hand, then a 'Push' will be declared and your wager will be returned.

    9 Up Feature Bet

    If you decide to place a feature bet, then you will receive your first card from the 9 Up deck!

    The feature bet will equal 20% of your main wager.

    The only cards available in the 9 Up deck are 9's, 10's, Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces.

    If you win Blackjack with a 9 Up feature bet, then you'll receive it back. 

    Achieving a non-Blackjack win will pay 1:1 on your main wager.

    Return to Player

    Return to Player (RTP): 99.64% (main game), 99.82% (9 UP feature).

    The expected return 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 £99.64 (main game) or £99.82 (9 Up feature) of wins.
