Play with a maximum of five hands in Multihand Blackjack, our excellent online casino game.
Utilize a maximum of five hands in Multihand Blackjack, as you take on the dealer once again.
As always, you must try and build a hand valued closer to 21 than the dealer's, without exceeding that total.
You must carry on drawing card until you have a hand worth 21, or comes as close as possible without exceeding it.
If the value of your initial two cards is exactly 21, which is formed by an Ace paired with a 10 or picture card, then you win blackjack.
If you stand, then you aren't dealt any extra cards.
Should your hand exceed 21, it is considered bust and is settled as a loser, even if the dealer's hand busts too.
The dealer must draw on 16, and on 17 they will always stand.
If your hand has the same value as the dealer’s then it is known as a ‘push’, and you will have your wager returned.
Values of the Cards
An Ace may have a value of either 1 or 11, and its value will be the one that benefits your hand the most.
The cards between 2-9 have face value.
The 10, Jack, Queen and King are all worth 10.
How to Bet
Choose your desired chip from the rack at the bottom, and place your wager by putting it in the required box on the casino table.
Placing bets - place your bet by clicking within a bet box with your chosen chip size
Removing bets - click ‘Undo’ and the last chip that you placed will be erased
Clear bets - click ‘Clear Bets’ to erase all of the chips from the table
Deal - clicking ‘Deal’ and the game begins, with you and the dealer receiving your initial cards. You are dealt two cards face-up
Hit - clicking ‘Hit’ add an extra card to the hand already in play
Stand - hit ‘Stand’ and the play on your current hand will end
Repeat and deal - click ‘Repeat and Deal’ and your bet from the previous game will be wagered again
Let ‘em ride - click ‘Let ‘em Ride’ in order to wager your winnings from the most recent game. This option is unavailable if purchased insurance on your previous game
Splitting - should you be dealt two cards with an identical value, you can split your hand, which will divide your hand in two. When splitting, you are required to place a wager on the second hand, and it must be equal to the amount wagered on your original bet
In this game, you can only split matching face cards. Therefore, a Queen paired with a Jack in your first two cards could not be split.
If you split Aces and then draw a card with a value of 10, it is not deemed as blackjack. This hand will have a value of 21, but if the dealer draws blackjack, you will lose.
Double down - your original bet can be doubled. After doubling you will only receive one more card - this can only be done if your initial two cards total 9, 10 or 11
Insurance - if the dealer’s first card is an Ace, you can protect your hand by buying insurance. This will cost you half of your original wager - if the dealer does draw blackjack, your insurance will pay out at 2:1, although you lose your initial wager.
If the dealer does not have blackjack, you will lose your insurance bet and the hand proceeds as normal.
The available payouts in Multihand Blackjack are:
- Winning Hand - 1:1
- Blackjack - 3:2
- Insurance - 2:1
