About Blackjack Perfect Pairs

Once the initial deal has taken place and any side bets have been paid out the main game of Blackjack Perfect Pairs will start. Tailor your online casino bet by deciding the number of hands you want to play with - you can choose to play with just 1, or increase that to 2 or even 3. The bet for all hands can be tailored individually so they could all have different chip values if you prefer.

The goal is for you to get a hand closer to 21 than the dealer without going over - this is known as going bust. If you’re playing with multiple hands, you could get a win on all 3 - it all depends on the value of the hands.

How to Play Blackjack Perfect Pairs

Selecting a chip: Press the Chip Selector button and pick one of the chips depending on the value that best suits your budget.

Placing a bet: Place your chips on the table - you can place them in up to 3 positions to play with up to 3 hands. You can also place a side bet by pressing the relevant +3 position once you’ve placed your chips.

Hit: Draws another card on the currently highlighted hand.

Stand: Finishes the hand; draws no further cards and moves on to the next hand or the dealer, depending on the state of play.

Double: Offered once per hand and is available after the first 2 cards have been dealt to the player. Double is available on any 2 cards. This bet requires a further bet equal to the initiating bet. Chips are placed on the original bet to signify the increase and one further card is drawn. This completes the hand; no further action is possible.

Split: Pressing split will cause the cards to separate and a further bet equal to the initiating bet is taken for the newly created hand. Further drawing of cards to these hands is possible after this.

Insurance: When the dealer’s face up card is an Ace, the player has the option to place an insurance bet on any hand, which is equal to half of the initial bet. A winning insurance bet, which occurs when the dealer has a Blackjack, will be paid at 2 to 1. The insurance bet will lose if the dealer does not have a Blackjack.
