How to Win Blackjack
In blackjack, you will have a winning hand if it is equal or closest to 21, and that number cannot be exceeded.
An Ace paired with a 10 or picture card in your original hand is called blackjack, with winnings from this being paid out at odds of 3/2.
Standard cards are worth their face value, however picture cards have a score of 10.
The exception to this rule is an Ace, as this can be valued at either 1 or 11, based on which score is more beneficial for your hand.
If your hand is equal to the value of the dealer’s your stake is returned, excluding cases where one hand consists of an Ace and a picture card, in which case it wins.
Blackjack consists of many different variants, with only slight changes apparent in most versions.
The features of Vegas Downtown Blackjack are listed below.
You are granted the chance to split your hand should you receive two cards of the same value.
This means that your one hand can be split into two, but to do this you are required to double your bet.
After your first two cards are revealed you can double down, which will double your original bet.
If you elect to do this, only one more card can be drawn for you.
You will be paid out for your entire doubled stake if this tactic is successful for you.
However, you will lose your total wager should the dealer get blackjack after you have split or doubled.
You can protect your hand with insurance if the dealer’s first card is an Ace, which costs precisely half of your initial wager.
For example, if your primary bet was £10, your insurance costs you an additional £5 on top of that.
Insurance will only cover your original wager, so a doubled down bet is not covered.
Return to Player
Return to Player (RTP): 99.62%
The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.

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