Vegas Downtown Blackjack

Vegas Downtown Blackjack

With the wonders of modern technology you can now play Vegas Downtown Blackjack without having to goto vegas or even downtown. The game uses two normal decks of cards which are shuffled before being dealt

As usual you need to beat the dealers hand: without going over 21, or by hoping the dealer will bust, in this game you can only play one hand at a time

The general rules pertaining to Vegas Downtown Blackjack are quite straight forward and the game is an American Hold Card Game, when the virtual dealer deals himself/herself/itself a ten or an ace he/she/it will check for blackjack, if a blackjack is had by the dealer its game over.

Blackjack will beat every other hand that has a value of twenty one.

The picture/face cards have the usual ten value, and it comes as no surprise that aces count as one or eleven

It is possible but extremely rare to be able to draw an additional 9 cards to make a mind boggling hand of eleven cards as long as you dont go over 21

The dealer will always hit on a soft 17

The "ins and outs" of taking insurance

You will be offered insurance if the dealer has an ace.

You can bet only half of your current blackjack bet.

The insurance bet is a stand alone wager.

Once you have started to play your hand you cannot then take insurance

Should the dealer not have blackjack and you have taken the insurance option this wager will lose and the game will continue.

If however the dealer is showing blackjack and you had taken the insurance bet you will be paid out an 2 to 1.

Doubling Down

Y0u are free to double down once your first two cards had been dealt to you

The cost of doubling down is the same as your original bet

You may also double down if you have split a hand

If you have a blackjack you cannot double down

Splitting Rules

You can Split two cards that have the same Denomination or Value, such as a Queen and a Ten, or two Fours. Your hand is divided into two separate hands and a bet equal to your original bet is placed on the second hand.

You cannot get a Blackjack after a Split. The hand has a value of 21.

You can Split a maximum number of three times per game. This equals four hands.

Note: This rule excludes Aces. Aces are only Split once.

If you Split a pair of Aces, each Ace is dealt one card, and the hand automatically Stands.

Betting and Payout Rules

If the Dealer's hand exceeds 21, it is Bust, and you automatically win.

If you are dealt an Ace and a card with a value of 10, you have Blackjack. Your hand automatically Stands. Your hand cannot be beaten, only matched. If you beat the Dealer with Blackjack you are paid out at odds of 3:2.

When your hand and the Dealer's hand tie, it is called a Push. You are paid your original bet amount.

If both the Dealer and your hand have Blackjack, this is considered a Push. You are paid your original bet amount.
