Blackjack Introduction

Blackjack is a pretty classic game that’s been around for centuries, from the first time it was founded. It’s been said that the game of Blackjack originated from Spain in the 17th century. This particular Blackjack game is from Red7 and is played with a 6-deck pack of cards that will be reshuffled between each and every game. You have the choice to play up to 3 initial hands, and in order to beat the house you need to get as close as possible as you can to 21 without busting!

Blackjack Game Features

You can choose to play up to 3 initial hands! A bet must be placed for each hand to be played. Two cards will then be dealt to each hand and two to the house. The house’s cards will be dealt with 1 card face up and 1 card face down. The total of any hand is the sum of the card values in the hand, and the hand is resolved following a stand or a double, or if the hand busts. 

Insurance 

After the initial deal, if the house’s face up card is an Ace, you will be presented with an option to make an insurance bet. The insurance bet is a bet that the house has a total of 21 exactly with 2 cards (Blackjack). The bet amount for the insurance bet will always be half of the bet for the current hand and you will be presented with the option to make an insurance bet for each hand in play. 

Blackjack Rules 

A hand may only be split as the first action on the hand and if the initial two cards are the same rank. A hand may only be split once; its not possible to split a hand that has already been split once. If a hand of 2 Aces is split, no further action will be allowed for these hands. You can select double for a hand after a split has been made. 

The house must draw to 16. The house must hit on soft 17, and the house must stand on a hard 17. A hand with an Ace values as 11 is ‘soft’, otherwise it’s ‘hard’. A hand is considered bust when it exceeds a total hand value of 21. When only 2 cards are used to create a hand with a value of exactly 21, this is considered as ‘Blackjack’. This only occurs for the first 2 cards drawn for a hand and does not apply to hands which have been split. Hands with a value of 21 will automatically stand.

No hand can contain more than 13 cards. Any hand containing 13 cards that has not bust, automatically stands. 

Blackjack Card Values 

In Blackjack, the card values are as follows: 

  • Ace can be counted as 1 or 11
  • An Ace is counted as 11 if it doesn’t cause the hand value to exceed 21. Each Ace is evaluated independently. 
  • 2-10 are counted as their respective number. 
  • Jack, Queen, and King are counted as 10. 
  • Suits are irrelevant in Blackjack. 

Blackjack Payouts 

Base Game 

  • Win 1:1 
  • Draw PUSH (when a bet is pushed it is returned to the player with no additional winnings)
  • Blackjack 3:2 

Insurance 

  • Blackjack 2:1 

Blackjack Graphics and Sound

Blackjack from Red7 has a classic look and feel to it, representing the well-known Blackjack game. The table itself is green, and when the game is rolling it has a really smooth flow to it. At the top of the table, you will see the games title and logo while under it are some of the general rules to the game. At the top right-hand corner is the machine that holds the deck and releases the cards when you press ‘deal’. Once the cards are dealt, they will be placed at the dealer’s side as well as in all the positions where you have made a bet. The cards will then glide across the table. 

There is an even more classic soundtrack playing in the background that has a jazz feel to it, with many piano notes embedded in it as well. You will also hear clicking sounds when you press buttons like making your bet or when you press the deal button. When the cards slide across the table, they also have a special sound effect that comes into play. Also, if you win, there will be fireworks that come into effect making it a truly exciting and engaging experience!

You can find the paytable information by clicking on the button at the bottom left-hand corner that has 3 yellow horizontal lines on it. 

Blackjack Conclusion

Blackjack from Red7 is your typical, classic table game played with several decks of cards with one goal in sight: beat the house’s hand! The very best possible collection of cards you can get is 21, which is Blackjack.
