Will you win in an exciting game of the casino favourite, First Person Blackjack?
The aim of this game is to produce a hand that is closer to 21 than the dealer, without going over.
Blackjack is the best possible hand in this game - where your first two cards equal 21 exactly.
A maximum of seven players can play at any one time - you only ever compete against the dealer, not other players.
This game is played with eight standard 52-card decks.
The card values are as below:
- Cards from two to 10 are worth their face value
- Face cards are each worth 10
- Aces are worth one or 11, whichever is more favourable to the hand - a soft hand includes an Ace worth 11.
When the betting time is over, the dealer will deal each player one card face up (dealing starts with the first player on the dealer’s left and continues clockwise, ending with himself).
The dealer will then deal each player a second card face up, ending with himself - the dealer's card will be face down.
The value of your initial hand will be shown next to your cards.
You can purchase 'Insurance' if the dealer’s card facing up is an Ace.
This reduces the risk of the dealer having blackjack, even if you also have blackjack.
Insurance Bets are equal to half your main bet - they are settled separately from the bet on your hand.
The dealer then checks his other card to see if he has blackjack:
- If he doesn't, the round continues
- If the dealer has blackjack and you don't, the dealer wins
- If both you and the dealer have blackjack, the game ends in a push and your bet will be returned
Double Down, Hit or Stand
If the dealer's initial two cards are not blackjack, it's the players' turn to play (starting with the first player on the dealer’s left and continuing clockwise).
When it's your turn, if the value of your initial hand is not 21, you have several options to try and improve your hand:
- Double Down - doubles your bet and adds one card to your hand
- Hit - you'll be dealt another card to add to your existing hand. You can Hit more than once as long as you don't exceed 21
- Stand - select Stand when you are satisfied with your hand
You can only Split if your first two cards are of equal value.
Splitting separates your cards into two separate hands.
Each is classed as a separate bet and both are the same value as your main bet.
The dealer will then deal you a second card for each hand.
You can Hit on each hand unless you Split an initial pair of aces.
If you Split on two aces, you can only receive one more card per hand.
You can only split once per hand.
The two Side Bets available in this game are Perfect Pairs and 21+3
You can combine Side Bets with your main bet.
It's possible win a Side Bet regardless whether you win your blackjack bet.
The Perfect Pairs Side Bet helps you to win when your initial two-card hand consists of a pair.
There are three types of pairs, all with a different payout:
- Mixed Pair – different suits, e.g. a 10 of Hearts and a 10 of Clubs
- Coloured Pair – different suits of the same colour, e.g. a two of Diamonds and a two of Hearts
- Perfect Pair – same suit, e.g. two Aces of Spades
Perfect Pairs Payouts
- Mixed Pair 6/1
- Coloured Pair 12/1
- Perfect Pair 25/1
- Flush 5/1
- Straight 10/1
- Three of a Kind 30/1
- Straight Flush 40/1
- Suited Trips 100/1
Bet Behind lets you bet on another player's hand, meaning you'll also share the outcome of that player’s hand.
Payouts for Bet Behind wagers are the same as for ordinary bets.
When betting is open, you can place a bet in any activated Bet Behind spot at another player's seat.
If the player you've placed a Bet Behind on doesn't participate in the round, your bet will be immediately refunded.
The nickname displayed at each seat identifies the player in charge of all decision making for that hand.
You may decide the following:
- If you want to place an Insurance bet when the dealer's upcard is an ace
- If you want to double your bet when the player you are betting behind opts to Double Down or Split
You cannot place a Bet Behind on your own hand.
This helps you identify the player with the longest winning streak.
The number in the gold medal tells you how many consecutive rounds that player has won.
If a Hot Player loses a round, they also lose the gold-medal icon.
