General Rules

Single-Deck BlackJack (or 'BlackJack Pro' as it named in some Playtech Casinos) is played with one standard deck of 52 playing cards and follows the standard "Las Vegas Strip" rules, with some exceptions.

  • Deck is shuffled after the completion of every game
  • Dealer hits on soft 17
  • The dealer will check for Blackjack if his up card is an ace or a ten valued card

7 Card Charlie

It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 7 cards without going bust. In this case the player's hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack.

Splitting Rules

  • The player may not Split a split hand
  • Only one card is drawn to split aces

    If you receive an ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack.

Double Down Rules

  • Player may Double on 10-11 only
  • The player cannot double after splitting

Insurance Rules

  • If the dealer does not have Blackjack, the player lose the Insurance amount
  • If the dealer does have Blackjack, the player is paid 2 to 1 on your insurance
