Online Casino Games - Rules Explained

Perfect Blackjack

Perfect Pair = 25x Your Bet!

The aim of playing Perfect Blackjack online is to beat the dealer’s score without exceeding 21. This online blackjack game offers you the chance to make some side bets, with extra payouts of up to 25 to 1 for a Perfect Pair.

Perfect Blackjack uses six decks, which are shuffled after each round.

Getting Started:

  • Click on a chip to select it.
  • Click on the Place Your Bets circle to place a chip on the bet. Press Undo if you wish to remove the last chip and press Clear Bet if you wish to remove all chips.
  • Place a side bet by clicking on Player’s Pair circle or Dealer’s Pair area.
  • Select Double if you wish to instantly double all bets on the table.

Note: You can place as many chips as you like, providing you do not exceed the maximum betting limit. This information is shown on the top-right of the screen.

  • Select Deal when you are ready to play.

How to Play:

Two cards are initially dealt to you. The dealer will also receive two cards, one face up and one face down. The following options can appear:

  • Hit – receive another card.
  • Stand – play out the hand with the same cards.
  • Double – double the bet (not including side bets) and receive another card. No further cards will be dealt after doubling.
  • Insurance – place a side bet on the dealer having a blackjack. This option will only be used if the dealer is showing an Ace.
  • Split – split your hand and receive a separate card for each. This option will only be available if you have two of the same value cards – two 10’s, Jack & Queen etc. Splitting a hand will cost a bet amount equal to your first bet.

Note: if you choose to split a pair, you will still receive the payout if you made the side bet.

Results:

The game is concluded when you Stand or Bust. You will automatically Stand if you have blackjack or 21. Winning bets (if any) will be highlighted on screen and paid into your balance.

You will be offered the following options when the game has finished:

  • New Game = start a new game from scratch.
  • Rebet = place the same bets as the last round. You can add/remove chips if you like.
  • Rebet & Deal = place the same bets as the last round and deal the cards.

Multi-Hand Blackjack:

You can play up to five hands at once in Perfect Blackjack. To play multi-hand, simply place chips in more than one Place Bet Here circle. Each game is played independently from the other.

Note: The hands are dealt from right to left and judged in that order.

Perfect Pair/Side Bets:

You can play the side bet game by placing a chip in the Perfect Pair circle or the Dealer’s Pair section. The side bet is based on whether the first two cards that you (or the dealer if applicable) are dealt will be a pair, e.g. two Jacks, two 7s etc.

The game is played independently from the main blackjack game, i.e. you do not need to win the main game to win the side bet.

You will win if any pair is achieved in the first two cards. The payouts depend on the type of pair:

Pair:

Example:

Payout:

Perfect Pair (same suit)

2 x King of Diamonds.

25 to 1

Coloured (same colour)

7 of Hearts and 7 of Diamonds.

12 to 1

Red/ Black (any pair)

Jack of Clubs and Jack of Diamonds.

6 to 1

Note: The payouts are the same for the Dealer’s Pair. These payouts are displayed on the top centre of the screen.

Insurance:

Insurance is another side bet. It is offered when the cards are dealt and the dealer is showing (face up card shows) an Ace. If so, you will be offered the chance to bet on the dealer having blackjack.

Insurance pays 2 to 1 and the maximum bet is half your initial stake. Therefore, it is placed if you wish to try cover the losses from the dealer having blackjack.

The insurance bet is judged independently from the main game, i.e. you do not need to win in the main game to win the insurance bet.

Colour:

You can click the Paintbrush Icon on the top left of the screen to change the colour of the table.

Payouts:

There are two payouts in the main game:

  • You will be paid even money (1 to 1) on your bet if you beat the dealer’s score without exceeding 21.
  • You will be paid 3:2 if you beat the dealer with blackjack.

Note: Your stake is returned if the game is a tie (push).

Note: You will automatically lose your stake if you go bust, regardless of the dealer’s score.

Perfect Blackjack Rules:

Perfect Blackjack is played under certain rules that the dealer and player must follow. In this online blackjack game:

  • The dealer must draw (hit) to 16 and stand on all 17s and above. This means that the dealer must take another card when at 16 or below, regardless of your hand. The dealer also must stand with a score of 17 or above, regardless of your hand.
  • The player can stand on whatever score they like.
  • The player can double after splitting.
  • Only one more card can be drawn after splitting two aces.
  • If the dealer is showing an Ace and the player doubles, both bets are lost. If the dealer is showing a 10 (Jack, Queen etc.), the double (second bet) is returned.

10 Card Charlie:

It is theoretically possible for you to draw 10 cards without exceeding 21. This is called 10 Card Charlie. It will beat every other hand except blackjack. The payout for 10 Card Charlie is 1 to 1.  

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Perfect Blackjack is 99.58% in the main game and 93.89% for side bets.

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.
