How to play Live Blackjack
The rules of Live Blackjack do not vary from classic Blackjack games. The aim of the game is to create a hand that's valued closer to 21 than the dealer's hand, without exceeding that figure. Face cards count as ten, all number cards are calculated at face value and Aces can be used as one or 11.
Players at the Live Blackjack tables are able to split and double down on their hands and accept insurance to guard themselves against the probability of the dealer having a Blackjack.
To keep things interesting, Playtech's Live Blackjack tables also reward players brave enough to wager on the various side bet options. First and foremost, the five different pairs side bets - Player's Pair, Dealer's Pair, Perfect Pair, Coloured Pair and Red/Black Pair. The Perfect Pair dishes out the biggest payout of 25:1, triggered when the first two cards of your hand and the dealer's are of the same suit.
Don't forget to dabble in the 21+3 side bet either, which allows you to bet on the likelihood of your first two cards, combined with the dealer's first face up card, making a high-value poker hand of a flush or better.
Live Blackjack return to player (RTP)
With optimal player strategy, the theoretical RTP of Live Blackjack is an impressive 99.46%, although the RTP of the Pairs side bets is 95.90% and the RTP of the 21+3 side bet is 96.30%.
For an altogether different kind of live dealer Blackjack experience, we would highly recommend sitting down at one of our Live Quantum Blackjack tables!
