Play Multi Hand Blackjack

Multi-hand Blackjack is played with five standard decks of 52 playing cards that are shuffled before each game.

The aim is to beat the Dealer's hand by either getting a higher value hand, without exceeding 21, or by the Dealer's hand going bust. In Multi-hand Blackjack, you can only bet five hand at a time.

Blackjack is when your hand contains an Ace and a card with a value of ten. It is the strongest hand in Multi-hand Blackjack, and automatically Stands. It cannot be beaten, only matched.

General Rules

1. Multi-hand Blackjack is played with five standard decks of 52 playing cards that are shuffled after the completion of every game.

2. Blackjack always beats any other hand with a value of 21.

3. All face cards - Jacks, Kings and Queens, have a value of 10.

4. Aces can have a value of either 1 or 11.

5. You may draw up to five additional cards to make a hand of seven cards, provided the value of your hand does not exceed 21. If your hand does not exceed 21 after receiving eleven cards, your hand automatically stands, and the Dealer plays his hand.

6. The Dealer stands on a soft 17.

Betting and Payout Rules

1. If the Dealer's hand exceeds 21, it is bust, and you automatically win.

2. If you are dealt an Ace and a card with a value of 10, you have Blackjack. Your hand automatically stands. Your hand cannot be beaten. If you beat the Dealer with Blackjack you are paid out at odds of 3:2.

3. When your hand and the Dealer's hand tie, it is called a Push. Your original bet amount is returned to you.

4. If both the Dealer and your hand have Blackjack, this is also considered a Push and you are paid out your original bet amount.

5. If the Dealer gets Blackjack after you have split or doubled, your entire bet - both the original and double or split amounts, are lost.

Splitting Rules

1. You can Split two cards that have the same Denomination, such as two Queens or two Fours. Your hand is divided into two separate hands and a bet equal to your original bet is placed on the second hand.

2. If you split a pair of Aces and then draw a card with a denomination of 10, this is not Blackjack, although it has a value of 21.

This rule also applies to splitting pairs of cards with a value of 10.

3. Cards of the same value but not of the same denomination cannot be split in this version of Blackjack. For example, a King and a Ten have the same numerical value, but cannot be split because the cards are not the same denomination.

Double Down Rules

1. You can double when your hand has a value of 9, 10 or 11. You are dealt one card and your hand automatically stands.

2. The Double bet is equal to your original bet.

Insurance Rules

1. You can take Insurance if the Dealer's first card is an Ace.

2. The Insurance bet is equal to half your original bet amount.

3. Insurance bet wins or losses are independent of your original bet.

4. Insurance is only taken on your original hand. You cannot take Insurance after a Hit, Split, or a Double Down bet. This means you can only take Insurance when the Dealer has one card face-up and you have two cards dealt.

5. If the Dealer does not have a Blackjack, the Insurance bet is removed from the table, and the cost of the Insurance bet is deducted from your credit balance. The game continues.

6. If the dealer has Blackjack, the Insurance bet is paid out at odds of 2:1.
