How to Play Mobile Classic Blackjack

Multihand Classic Blackjack for mobile

  • In blackjack you are competing against the dealer (the house).
  • The player and the dealer are each dealt cards, with the goal of reaching 21, without going over.
  • The player is dealt two cards, and may draw as many cards as they wish, until reaching 21.
  • If the player draws a card that puts them over 21 (which is called a "Bust"), they lose the hand. A winning hand adds up to more than the dealer's hand, without "Busting".
  • The dealer is dealt with only one card and receives his second card only after the player finished is play for the hand.

Blackjack Rules:

Our blackjack game has a dealer and a player. The dealer deals from a shoe containing 6 decks of playing cards which are shuffled after every round.

Before the deal, the player places his bets by clicking the desired chips in order to reach the desired bet.

After deciding on the desired bet the player must click the "Deal" button to proceed with the hand. The round begins after the player has bet and clicked "Deal".

Once the deal begins the bets may not be changed. During the course of the hand the player may add to his bets through Double Downs, Splits, and Insurance.

After the cards are dealt, you will be offered the appropriate option. Buttons, located on the lower center of the screen, will appear in order to facilitate the player's desired action.

For example, if it is possible to split two cards a button will appear to allow the player to split the cards. The player simply clicks on the "Split" button in order to split.

The player receives two cards, face up, and the dealer receives one card, face up. The player may request as many additional cards as desired, until he chooses to "Stand" or until the player goes "Bust".

If a player is dealt blackjack, which is a 10 or face card along with an Ace, they are immediately paid 1.5 times the placed bet, unless the dealer also has blackjack, in which case it is a "Push" (the player's bet left on the table).

After all of the player's bets have been completed, the dealer completes their hand. If the dealer has sixteen or less, they must draw a card (Hit), until they reach seventeen or more.

If the dealer's card total exceeds 21 (Bust), they must pay all players remaining in the hand.

An Ace can be valued as either a 1 or an 11.

A "Hard Hand" is a hand with no ace, or a hand with an Ace that counts as 1. A hand comprising an Ace, 7, and 9 is called a "Hard 17".

A "Soft Hand" is a hand with an Ace that counts as 11. A hand comprising an Ace and a 6 is called a "Soft 17."

"Double Down": A player may select the "Double" option after being initially dealt two cards. The Double option automatically doubles the player's bet and deals one additional card, face up. The player cannot draw any additional cards.

The player may double down after splitting a pair or on any first dealt two cards, if the resulting hand(s) is a Hard Hand of value 9-11.

Given a bet is doubled, a dealer’s blackjack will result in the collection of the original bet only and the secondary bet will be returned to the player.

"Split": If the player is dealt any pair of cards, on the first two cards (i.e., two Fives, two Jacks, etc.), they may split the cards into two separate hands.

The split option automatically places an additional bet, equal to the original wager.

Each hand is then played independently, and the player may take as many Hits as desired on each hand (with the exception of Aces, which receive one additional card only, per hand).

In the case of split Aces or tens, a player's blackjack is not possible and is considered as a regular 21.

In this case, a dealer's blackjack wins, and a dealer's 21 becomes a "Push".

A blackjack in the split loses to the dealer's blackjack.

The player is allowed to re-split each hand once (i.e. up to 4 hands).

If the hand is split, a dealer’s blackjack will result in the collection of the original bet only and the secondary bet will be returned to the player.

"Insurance": If the dealer shows an Ace, the player has the option of making an "Insurance Bet".

This equals half the original bet, and ensures that the player will not lose their wager should the dealer be concealing a 10 or face card under their Ace.

If, in fact, the dealer's down card is equal to 10, the player wins the Insurance Bet at odds of 2-1. If the dealer's down card has a value of less than 10, the player loses the Insurance Bet and continues normally with the hand.

"Push": A Push refers to when the dealer and the player have the same numerical count in their hands. In this event the play is a draw, and the players bet remains on the table.
