Card shuffle

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.

  • If the service provider has enabled the use multiple Golden Chips, the game automatically tries to place these bets with Golden Chips, preferring chips that are closer to the initial Golden Chip bet value.
    • If no more Golden Chips are available, the game uses Regular Chips to place the bet, creating a mixed bet.
    • If mixed bets are not allowed and you do not have enough Golden Chips, or you have reached the limit of allowed Golden Chips in the current game, Regular Chips are used for the bet.
    • Note that the bet is rejected if your Regular Chips balance is too low to cover the bet.

Due to the nature of these events and due to live transmissions potentially being delayed, we assume no liability for any information, including the score and time of game, being incorrect. Please ensure that you refer to the specific betting rules to see how bets are settled in particular markets. Note that this delay varies between customers and may depend on the setup from which they are receiving the data or pictures.

Live video feeds: Due to the nature of the Internet, video latency may occur. The game has been designed to ensure that players do not have advantage nor are in disadvantage due to the potential latency.

Note on malfunctions: A malfunction voids all pays and plays.

Note on rounding: Bets are always rounded down from the third decimal point. When you are refunded, and the money is transferred to your account balance, any amount smaller than 0.01 is rounded down.

Note on unresolved actions: Unpaid actions are canceled after 90 days.

Note on disconnections: If you are disconnected from the Internet in the middle of a game while playing for Real Money, please re-establish your Internet connection and log back into the Casino. You will be automatically directed to the non-live version of the game you were playing so you can finish the game round. Please note that only the cards that were on the table at the moment of disconnection are carried over to such a game round. In some cases, the video stream may allow you to see additional dealer cards drawn or revealed after your disconnection. These cards are not carried over to the non-live game round. Note that side bets are resolved based on the Live game, and not the non-live version of the game.

Rules

Game rules

The object of the game is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. Aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards at their face value. Blackjack beats a score of 21.

You can bet on all betting positions within a single game round. If two players are playing on the same position, one may choose to Stand and the other may choose to Hit. In this case, the dealer will deal another card to the position, but the player who chose to Stand will not receive the card.

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".

The dealer draws cards until 16 and always stands on 17 (including soft 17).

The dealer hits on soft 17, meaning that if one of the cards in their hand is an Ace and the total of other card(s) in their hand is 6 (irrespective of the order they were dealt), the dealer has a soft 17, and this is shown as “7/17”. If this occurs, the dealer continues to deal cards to their hand until they get a hard 17 or higher.

When the dealer has an open 10-value card and a hidden Ace in their hand, the dealer reveals the hidden card and announces that the game round is over. There will be no decision or insurance round.

Split

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 3:2.

Double

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.

Insurance

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.

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. The dealer checks for a Blackjack directly after the insurance round, and if they have a Blackjack, the game round is ended before action time.

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.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
