PLAY ORIGINAL BLACKJACK AT BETFAIR CASINO
Original Blackjack from Cayetano Gaming adds some extra twists to this classic casino game for you to try!
ORIGINAL BLACKJACK SPECIAL FEATURES
- Blackjack Insurance – if the dealer’s face-up card is an ace, you can accept the Insurance option with a side-bet of half the amount of your original stake. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you still win 2:1.
- Splitting – if your first two cards have the same value, you can split them to play two separate hands and place an additional bet equal to your original. Splitting two aces means you can only draw one more card per hand.
- Doubling down – If you have a strong hand with your first two cards, you’ll get the chance to double your bet on that hand but can only draw one more card. This works with split hands too and gives you the edge if the dealer starts with a low-value hand.
HOW TO PLAY ORIGINAL BLACKJACK
You’ll be dealt two cards face up for each hand you’re playing. Depending on their total value you choose whether to ‘hit’ for extra cards or ‘stand’ when you’ve got a high total. At this stage you’ll only see the dealer’s first card – the second remains face down until all your hands are played. If the dealer’s two cards total less than 17, they must take another card. With 17 or more, the dealer can’t add another card.
HOW TO PLACE ORIGINAL BLACKJACK BETS
Pick one, two or all three betting fields on the table and select a chip value that will be applied to each pick in increased increments to make up your total bet on the game.
