The objective of Blackjack is to beat the dealer's hand without going over 21 (bust). At the start of Blackjack, you and the dealer are dealt two cards each. If you have 21 on the first two cards, you have BLACKJACK!
How to Play
Use your left mouse button to click on the value of the chip that you wish to wager. Then click in the desired betting area. You may play up to three hands in each round, occupying up to three seats at the table. You can remove a wagered chip before the game begins by clicking on it with your right mouse button and selecting Remove chip. To remove a placed bet from a betting area, click CLEAR BET next to that area. When you have placed your bets, click the DEAL button to start the game round. Click SAME BET to repeat the bet from the previous round.
You and the dealer will each receive two cards. One of the dealer's cards is dealt face down. Now you must choose an action:
- HIT: You are dealt an additional card.
- STAND: No more cards are dealt.
- DOUBLE: Your bet is doubled, and you receive only one additional card.
- SPLIT: If your first two cards are of the same value, you may split them to form two separate hands. A second bet, equal to your initial bet, is automatically placed on your second hand. You may then proceed to draw cards as usual. However, if two Aces are split into separate hands, you receive only one additional card per hand. If two Aces or two ten-value cards are split and one of the hands totals 21, the hand is not regarded as blackjack, but as 21. You may not re-split a hand that has already been split.
Limits for minimum and maximum bets can be found at the game tables.
Cards are worth their face value with the exception of Kings, Queens, and Jacks which are each worth 10 and Aces which are worth either 1 or 11. If the value of your hand is closer to 21 than that of the dealer you win. If the value of the dealer's hand is higher than yours you lose. If the hands are of equal value the hand results in a push and your bet is returned. If you have a total of 22 or higher (a busted hand), you lose regardless of whether the dealer also busts.
Six decks of cards are used, which are shuffled after each round.
Insurance is a game of its own within Blackjack, which gives you a chance to protect yourself from the dealer getting blackjack. If the dealer’s first card is an ace, insurance against dealer blackjack can be bought for half the price of the initial bet. If the dealer does have blackjack, the insurance pays 2 to 1. If insurance is bought and the dealer does not have blackjack, the insurance bet is lost. Please note that insurance will not be offered in the case that the player has a Blackjack and the dealer has an Ace.
Rules for the Dealer
The dealer must draw cards until he has at least 17, and must stand on 17 or higher. If the dealer gets 16, he must take another card. The dealer may not decide whether or not to draw a card based on your hand, but must abide by existing dealer rules. The dealer checks for blackjack on an open ace or ten value card.

Connection Lost to Server
This message is raised when there is something wrong with the connection to the server. An unfinished game is created and you can replay the game round the next time you start the game.
In the event of disconnection, an interrupted game may be resumed by waiting at least three minutes and starting the game again. Should you start the game again within three minutes of an interruption and do not see the previously interrupted game resume, you may either close the game or continue to play. The previously interrupted game will resume the next time you start the game (after the three minutes have elapsed).
Any amount wagered on an unfinished game will remain paused until you either complete the game or the game is void as a result of account inactivity or system maintenance. When an unfinished game is void, if the outcome of the game had not yet been determined at the time of interruption, your bet will be refunded to your account. If the outcome of the game had been determined to be a loss, your account will not be refunded for the interrupted game. If the outcome of the game had been determined to be a win, your account will be credited for the win.
The result of a completed game may be viewed in My History by waiting at least three minutes after closing the game window. Results of unfinished games are not displayed in My History.
