Playtech Classic Blackjack Casino Game
Playtech Classic Blackjack game online accepts a minimum bet of $/Euro/GBP 1 and a maximum bet of $/Euro/GBP 300.
It makes use of 6 decks of 52 regular playing cards to a shoe and each hand commences after these cards have been shuffled. A Blackjack or a “natural” which is one Ace and one face card beats any hand of a 21 count and the dealer is made to stand on a soft 17.
The rules are based on the Vegas Strip version of this game and Playtech software allows for optimal strategy cards to be used as a guide to the game. There is no option for a late surrender and any pair may be split. Hands are not allowed to be re-split and if Aces are split, only one additional card may be dealt to both, then the player must stand.
Double down rules apply to the first two cards, but only if they total 9, 10 or 11, and the value of this bet must be the same as the original wager. A double down may take place after a split but not on a Blackjack. After doubling down the hand is eligible to receive on additional card before you are forced to stand.
Insurance rules apply and this is paid 2:1; the dealer has to be showing an Ace for this wager to be valid. Insurance wagers are forfeited if the dealer does not have a Blackjack and this bet can only be half your original wager.
