Blackjack Lounge 1
We offer eight deck Live Blackjack with a live dealer and a real Blackjack table, with seats for seven players.
- If a game round is in progress when you enter the table, please wait for the next one, and then, place your bets.
- To place a bet, choose a chip and place it on the betting position.
- You can place several chips on different betting positions simultaneously.
- The timer in the game window shows how much time you have left to place your bets.
- You must confirm your bet. This can be done either manually, by using the Confirm button after each bet, or automatically at the end of betting time. If your service provider has enabled auto-confirmation, it is on by default and the Confirm button does not appear. You can switch the feature off in game settings.
- After the No More Bets signal, the game round begins.
- Winnings are paid for the winning bets at the end of each game round.
- To play a game round, place your bets again or use the Rebet button.
- To skip a turn, simply do not place any bets on the table.
- Once the main bet is placed and confirmed, if the Multiple Bets option is supported and the betting round is still open, additional bets are accepted.
- After betting round, use Hit, Stand, Double, Split and Insurance (if the dealer’s first card is an Ace) buttons to take action.
- If you do not make a move, you automatically Stand. If you choose to Double, an amount matching your main bet is taken from your balance and your main bet is doubled.
- If every player at the table busts (scores higher than 21), the round is over. The dealer does not draw additional cards.
The limit ranges displayed next to the table name in the Lobby and on the game table UI correspond to Blackjack's main position bet limits.
Multi Seat feature
You can occupy multiple* seats at the game table and make separate bets on each position. If you do not have confirmed bets on the table, you can change seats between and during game rounds. If the auto-confirmation of bets is enabled, you can change seats until the end of the betting round.
*Option is available only if enabled by your service provider.
There is an option* to join a full table as a Bet Behind player. This allows you to participate in the game by following the actions of the main players and making bets on their hands.
Bet Behind option is available only on the positions that are occupied by main players. You can become a Bet Behind player on multiple positions simultaneously. When you are participating in the game as a main player, you can also play as a Bet Behind player on all other positions, other than your own.
As a Bet Behind player, you automatically follow the actions of the main player, unless they chose to Split or Double and you do not have sufficient funds to do the same. In that case, if the main player Doubled, you Hit & Stand; or, if the main player Split, you follow the right main hand. Insurance is not available to Bet Behind players.
If you make a Bet Behind bet on a player's hand who decides not to make a bet during the betting round, your bet is then returned to your account. Bet Behind bets limits are displayed in the Table limits panel.
*Option is available only if enabled by your service provider.
Deal Now* feature aims to speed up the game flow when there are only a few players at the table. You can use the Deal button to request that the betting round will end early, because you have finished placing your bets and are ready to play.
Deal button may be available in one game round and disabled in the next — this depends on the number of players sitting at the game table.
Note, that if auto-confirmation of bets is disabled, the Deal button is enabled only after you have manually confirmed your bets. Also, Bet Behind feature is not available after the Deal button has been activated.
*Option is available only if enabled by your service provider.
These are wagers that you can make beyond the main game bet. These cannot be placed without the main bet.

Card dealing style
Blackjack tables may differ by the style of card dealing procedure. There are two options: US or EU card dealing styles.
EU: The table that is marked with an EU icon in the Lobby is set to deal cards in the European style, which means that the dealer gets the second card only after all the players have made their decisions.
US: The table that is marked with an US icon in the Lobby is set to deal cards in the American style, which means that the dealer gets the second card directly after cards were dealt to all the players and before players make their decisions.
Card dealing style affects insurance and action round sequence. See the Insurance section in the game Rules for further information.
Eight pre-shuffled decks are used in the game. When a new set of pre-shuffled cards arrives at the table, the cards are placed in the shoe and dealer places a divider into the new set of cards. Once the divider is dealt, the dealer announces that the cards will be replaced in the following round. Each time a new set of cards arrives at the table, all previous cards are removed. Additional shuffle is performed at the table before placing the new cards into the shoe.
New shoe card burn*: At the beginning of each new shoe, the dealer draws the first card from the shoe face up and the number of cards that corresponds to the value of the first card is burned (i.e. discarded), face down.
* Only available if enabled by your service provider.

Golden Chips are bonus chips that are awarded to you in certain table games. Each Golden Chip has a specific value and can be used for betting like a normal chip.
If the Golden Chip menu is available on the dashboard, it means that you have Golden Chips available for you to use in the current game.
The Info button opens a pop-up with more information about the Golden Chips.
To bet using the Golden Chips, first select the desired Golden Chip value and then place a bet as normally. The remaining amount of Golden Chips decreases respectively.
In case of a Tie or Push, the Golden Chip you bet is returned to you. Note that Tie or Push are featured only in Blackjack and poker games.
When your Golden Chip bet wins, the value of the winning Golden Chip is deducted from your win amount.
All game rounds that are played using Golden Chips are also distinguished in game history with the corresponding (GC) icon.
Note: This feature can be enabled or disabled by your service provider.

Live Blackjack rules
This Blackjack is played using eight decks of cards and with seven main players seated at the table (and with an unlimited number of Bet Behind players, if the feature is enabled).
The object of Blackjack is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, Aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards at their face value. Blackjack beats a score of 21.
The dealer draws cards until 16 and always stands on 17 (including soft 17). If you receive an Ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win 1.5 times your bet (if your bet was 10, you receive 25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer's, you win your bet amount (if your bet was 10, you receive 20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you are bust and lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 and up) neither win, and your bet is returned to you in a push.
If your first two cards have the same value, you may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet. You will then draw additional cards to each hand. You may not Split a split hand.
You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, but if you split two Aces, you receive only one additional card for each Ace. If you receive an Ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack. In this case the payout is 1:1, not 1:1.5.
If, after you are dealt your first two cards, you think that the third card will allow you to beat the dealer's hand, you can double your bet. The bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of your balance), and you are dealt one more card.
You may Double after splitting. If you Double and dealer's first card’s value is 11 (Ace), and the dealer gets Blackjack, you lose both bets. If dealer’s first card’s value is 10, and the dealer gets Blackjack, your Double bet is returned to you.
If the dealer shows an Ace in his initial hand, you are given a chance to insure your bet against him having a Blackjack. If you get Insurance, an amount equal to half your original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. This way you do not lose your original bet (because you get the 2x half your original bet, plus the insurance amount back). If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount, even if you end up losing.
You can insure any Real Money bet, but not a Golden Chip bet. If the game supports Multi seat feature, insurance is applied on all the position the you have occupied, except for the position where the you have used Golden Chips.
Card dealing style affects the sequence of insurance and action rounds:
- In case of US dealing style, insurance is offered when both you and the dealer have received the second card and the dealer shows an Ace as their first card in their hand. Depending on the version, the dealer checks their hand for Blackjack either before or after the action round. If it is done before the action round, and the dealer has a Blackjack, the game round is immediately ended.
- In case of EU dealing style, the insurance is offered after you have received your second card and the dealer shows an Ace as their first card. However, you get an action round directly after the insurance round and before the second card is dealt to the dealer.
10 Card Charlie
It is theoretically possible for you to draw 10 cards without going bust. In this case your hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack.
