How to Play Single Deck Blackjack
The aim of Single Deck Blackjack is to have a higher value hand than the dealers, without going over 21.
Your initial hand is formed of two cards.
If your initial hand contains an Ace and a 10 or picture card, you have blackjack!
You can choose to draw additional cards to increase the value of your hand.
If you go over 21, you will go bust and lose.
If the dealer's initial hand equals 17 or more, they won't be able to draw any more cards.
However, if the dealer's initial hand equals 16, they have to draw a card.
Should your hand be equal to the dealer's, then a 'push' will be announced and your bet will be returned.

Clicking 'Hit' will add one more card to your hand.
Pressing 'Stand' will maintain your current hand as it is, with no new cards added.
You will have the option to 'split' your initial hand if contains two identical cards.
Clicking 'Split' will separate the cards into two separate hands with individual bets.
Each hand's bet will be equal to the bet placed on the initial hand.
You will not be able to create blackjack from a split pair of Aces.
You will only have the option to 'Double Down' if your first two cards equal nine, ten or 11.
Clicking 'Double Down' will add just one card to your initial hand.
When you choose to 'Double Down', your original bet will be doubled.
In the event of the dealer having an Ace, you will have the option to buy insurance.
This will offset the risk of the dealer then achieving blackjack.
If the dealer does have blackjack, then the insurance bet will pay 2:1 and you will lose your original bet.
However, you will lose the insurance bet if the dealer doesn't have blackjack.
The insurance bet costs one half of your original wager.
Repeat and Deal Bet
The 'Repeat and Deal' bet allows you to place the same value bet as your bet from the last game.
Let ‘em Ride Bet
The 'Let 'em Ride' bet will use your winnings from the last game to place a new bet.
This won't be available if your last hand contained an insurance bet.
