UK Blackjack

Blackjack is the UK's most popular card game, it's also known by a few other names such as Pontoon or simply '21'. Blackjack is a very simple game which is easy to learn and straight forward to play.

Many blackjack tables now include side bets, such as 21+3, pairs plus or 'top 3', some casino's have now started introducing the Aces side bet too but this isn't proving very popular amongst players.

The game itself is easy, the player and the dealer are both dealt 2 cards, both of the players cards and one of the dealers cards are dealt face up. You then have the choice to 'hit' or 'stand' to get as close to 21 as you can without going over, 22 or more and you lose instantly.

The decision to hit or stand (sometimes called twist or stick) is also based upon the one dealers card that you see, if the dealer has a good first card (ie 10+ or A) then you're more inclined to try for a higher hand, knowing that the dealer has a good chance of turning over another high card.

The main Blackjack rules and notes are:

The dealer has to reach 17 before standing and can't take anymore cards once 17 or more has been reached, the player can stand or hit on any number except 21.

If the player has 2 cards the same you can then split them, doubling your stake and creating 2 separate hands.

The player can 'double' on any hand, by doubling your stake you get one more card only, usually a good choice on 10 or 11 against a poor dealer card.

If the player and the dealer both reach the same total then it's a 'push' and the players money is returned, excluding any side bets.

Blackjack nearly always pays extra, so if you get 10A, JA, QA, KA with a 50 bet, the total return would be 125.

Some casinos offer even money if you have Blackjack and the dealer has an Ace, basically you would double your money without seeing the second dealers card, if you choose not to take this option and the dealer has blackjack then you just get your stake back.

Blackjack is generally played using 4 or 6 decks of cards.

Blackjack also has very popular side bets, the main ones in the UK are:

Pairs plus: This is based on the players first 2 cards, if you get 2 cards the same then you win a multiplier, this varies but is generally 5-1 for a mixed pair, 10-1 for a pair the same colour and 30-1 for a pair the same suit.

21+3: This is basically 3 card poker hands based on your first 2 cards and the dealers face up card, so if you had 7/8 and the dealer had a 9 you would win, the odds remain the same for all hands which are generally 9-1 and the hands include... Flush, 3 of a kind, straight, straight flush.

Top 3: The top 3 blackjack side bet is one of my favourites, usually this is on tables alongside the 21+3 side bet and that has to be played in order for you to play this one too. This pays on the best 3 poker hands based on your 2 cards and the dealers first card, the general odds are; 90/1 for a 3 of a kind, 180-1 for a straight flush and 270-1 for a 3 of a kind suited.
