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.
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.
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:
Note: if you choose to split a pair, you will still receive the payout if you made the side bet.
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:
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:
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 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.
You can click the Paintbrush Icon on the top left of the screen to change the colour of the table.
There are two payouts in the main game:
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.
