Classic Blackjack: Single Deck

Classic Blackjack: Single Deck is the casino classic played with just 52 cards.

    Classic Blackjack: Single Deck - Game Overview

    The aim of this game is to beat the dealer with a hand closer to 21, without going over.

    Hitting 21 with your first two cards will award blackjack.

    One single deck of 52 cards is used in this version of the game.

    Two cards are dealt to both the player and the dealer.

    You will then have the option to increase your hand's value by hitting.

    Choosing 'Stand' will keep your hand as it is.

    The dealer must hit on all hands of 16 or less, while they must stick on all hands of 17+.

    If the two hands are equal, a push is declared and your stake is returned.


    If you draw two matching cards, you are given the chance to split your hand into two separate hands.

    You must double your original wager to cover the cost of the second hand.

    Should you choose to split Aces, you cannot win blackjack on either hand.

    It is not possible to double down after splitting your hand.

    Double Down

    If your initial hand has a value of 9-11, you can choose to double down on it.

    This doubles your original wager.

    You must match your original stake to make this wager.

    You have the option to receive your additional card either face up or face down.


    If the dealer's first card is an Ace, you are given the chance to buy insurance on your hand.

    This can be used to offset the risk of the dealer having blackjack.

    This costs half of your original wager.

    Should the dealer have blackjack, your original bet is lost and the insurance bet is paid out.

    If the dealer does not have blackjack, the insurance bet is lost and your hand continues as normal.
