    Signature Live Blackjack Game Overview 

    The chip sizes available in Signature Live Blackjack range from £1 to £500. 


    How to Play Signature Live Blackjack

    Signature Live Blackjack is played using eight regular decks of 52 cards.

    Cards assume the following vales:

    • Numbered cards 2-10 - face value
    • Jack, Queen, King - 10
    • Ace - one or 11, whichever benefits your hand most

    Once the betting time has expired, all players will receive one card face-up.


    Blackjack

    Blackjack is the best outcome possible. 

    It's awarded when your first two cards are worth exactly 21.

    Blackjack pays out 1.5x your initial bet.

     

    Insurance Bet

    It's only possible to purchase Insurance if the dealer's face-up card is an Ace.

    Insurance bets minimise the damage of the dealer having Blackjack, even if you also have Blackjack.

    Insurance bets cost 0.5x your main bet - each bet is settled individually.

    • If the dealer has Blackjack, Insurance pays out at 2:1
    • If the dealer has Blackjack and you don't, they win
    • If the dealer doesn't have Blackjack, the game continues
    • If you and the dealer both have Blackjack, the game ends in a 'push' and your stake will be refunded


    Game Options

    • Double Down - adds another card to your hand and costs double your stake
    • Hit - lets the dealer know you want another card. You can continue to Hit until your hand exceeds 21
    • Stand - tells the dealer you're happy with your hand and don't want to receive any more cards
    • Split - splits your initial hand into two separate hands. This can only be done if you first two cards are of equal value, and a separate bet will be placed on each


    Outcome

    Exceeding 21 will cause you to 'bust' and lose, regardless of the dealer's outcome. 

    Once all players have played, the dealer will reveal their second card:

    • If their hand equals 16 or less, they must Hit
    • If their hand equals a soft 17 or more, they must Stand

    In order to win, your hand must be closer to 21 than the dealer's or the dealer must bust.

    Blackjack is worth more than a hand of 21 comprising three or more cards, and more than a hand of 21 that was originally a 'Split' pair.


    Side Bets

    You can place the below Side Bets in this game. 

    Side Bets are combined with your main bet.


    Perfect Pairs

    Perfect Pairs can only be placed if your first two cards are a pair.

    There are three types of Perfect Pairs:

    Suited TripsAn identical triplet100:1

    Malfunctions void this round and payouts. 


    Bet Behind Feature

    It's possible to Bet Behind another player's hand, but you will share the outcome of their hand whether they win or lose.

    Bet Behind payouts are the same as standard bets.

    You can place a wager on any activated Bet Behind spot at another player's seat, as long as it's done before the betting time has expired.  

    If your chosen player does not to participate in a round, your stake will be returned. 

    If your chosen player opts to Double Down or Split, you also have the option to double your wager.

    You can't prevent other players from betting behind your hand, and you cannot bet behind your own hand.

     

    Hot Player

    This icon informs you of the player with the longest winning streak.

    If the Hot Player loses a round, they'll lose the Hot Players icon.


    Return to Player (RTP)

    The optimal theoretical payout percentage is:

    Blackjack – 99.28%

    Perfect Pairs bet – 95.90%

    21+3 bet – 96.30%

    The expected return to player 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 £99.28 of wins.
