    How to Win Blackjack

    To win a hand in blackjack, you need to have a set of cards that is equal to or closest to 21.

    You can make up 21 from any number of cards - an Ace with a 10 or a picture card is known as 'blackjack', and automatically beats all other hands.

    Picture cards are valued at 10, with all other cards being worth their face value.

    The exception to this rule is the Ace, as this can be worth either 1 or 11 depending on which score assists your hand more.

    If your cards equate to the same numerical value as the dealer's hand, your stake is returned in what is known as a 'push'.


    If the first two cards you are dealt are of matching value then you have the option to split your hand.

    This means that your original hand is split into two and you must bet the same stake again to cover them both.

    Doubling Down

    You are offered the opportunity to double down on your bet once you've received your first two cards.

    If you choose to double down then you must match your existing stake for that hand - you receive double your total wager if you win.

    Should the dealer turn over blackjack after you have doubled down, you lose your whole wager.

    A special feature of this game is that you can double down on any two cards, plus you can double down after splitting your original hand.


    You are given the option to safeguard your hand against the possibility that the dealer has blackjack, should the dealer turn an Ace on their first card.

    The cost of insurance is half of your wager - so if you have bet £10, you pay £5 for the insurance.

    If the dealer does not have blackjack then your insurance bet is lost and the hand will continue as normal.


    The surrender option allows you to walk away from your hand after the deal.

    Should you choose to take this option then you will lose half of your original wager.

    Return to Player

    Return to Player (RTP): 99.64%

    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 of wins.

    This return is based on the player making the best choices.
