Try your hand at the live casino game Madison Avenue Blackjack for a chance to beat the dealer and potentially win cash prizes!
The aim of Madison Avenue Blackjack is to hold a better hand than the dealer without going bust.
This game is hosted by a live dealer.
Up to seven players can play at a time.
Madison Avenue Blackjack is played with eight standard 52-card decks.
Blackjack is the best possible outcome - it is awarded when your first two cards equal 21 exactly.
The values of the cards in this game are outlined below:
Once the betting time is up, each player will be dealt one card face-up, starting with the player on the dealer's left-hand side and moving clockwise.
Next, all players will be dealt a second card, again face-up, face-up.
The dealer's second card will be face-down, however.
The sum of your hand will be displayed on-screen, next to your cards.
After your initial two cards have been dealt, you have the following options:
You can only split once per hand.
Exceeding 21 will cause you to 'bust' and lose your bet.
If you do not bust, the dealer will reveal their face-down card after all players have had their turn.
You win if the dealer 'busts' or your final hand is closer to 21 than theirs.
If you and the dealer tie, your bet will be returned.
Blackjack beats a hand of 21 comprising three or more cards, and a hand of 21 resulting from a split pair.
You can only purchase Insurance if the dealer's second card is an Ace.
It reduces the risk of the dealer having blackjack, even if you also have blackjack.
Insurance bets cost half your original stake.
If the dealer does have blackjack, Insurance pays out 2:1; if the dealer has blackjack and you did not purchase Insurance, odds are paid out 3:2.
The dealer will then check their face-down card, which will result in one of the following outcomes:
Insurance cannot be purchases when the dealer's face-up card is a 10, J, Q or K.
Insurance bets are settled separately.
There are two side bets available in this game (below).
Side bets can be combined with your main bet.
You can win a side bet even if you don't win your blackjack bet.
If your initial two cards are a pair of any kind, you can win with the Perfect Pairs side bet.
In this game, there are three Perfect Pairs you can get, each with different payouts:
The 21+3 side bet can be won if your first two cards AND the dealer's face-up card form one of the following winning combinations:
Any malfunctions void the game round and all payouts.
This feature allows you to bet on another player's hand.
You will share the outcome of their hand, even if they do not win.
Payouts for Bet Behind wagers are the same as ordinary bets.
Place a bet in any activated Bet Behind spot at another player's seat before the betting time expires.
If you place a Bet Behind someone who does not participate in the round, your bet will be immediately refunded.
The nickname displayed at each seat lets you know which player is in charge of the decision making for that hand.
However, you can decide the following:
You can't place a Bet Behind bet on your own hand, nor can you prevent other players from betting behind you.
This icon lets you know which player has the longest winning streak.
The number in the gold medal tells you how many consecutive rounds that player has won.
