Play Perfect Blackjack Online at Casino.com Canada
Perfect Blackjack offers the excitement of a classic game of blackjack with an additional side bet – Perfect Pairs. Players are able to place a side bet that their first two cards or the dealer’s first two cards will form a pair, offering the chance to win an additional payout in the game. Here at the Casino.com online casino you can choose from a large suite of exciting blackjack games, providing something to suit everyone.
Playing Perfect Blackjack
Before the online casino game begins players must place their bets. There is also a side bet – the Perfect Pairs bet – that can be placed at this point. You are able to bet on the player having a pair or the dealer having a pair on their first two cards and can place either or both of these bets. The perfect pair bet is optional, but it can only be placed when a regular blackjack bet is placed. Once the player and dealer have been dealt two cards each, the perfect pairs bet will be paid out.
The blackjack game is then played with classic rules, with the aim of the game being to achieve a total hand valued of closer to 21 than the dealer without going over (bust). Each card has a value – cards 2 through 10 have their face value; face cards have a value of 10 and Ace has a value of 1 or 11 depending on the value of the other cards in the hand. These card values are added together to create the total hand value.
The player has the following options:
- Insurance – Players are able to take an insurance bet based on the first card of the dealer. Insurance pays out 2:1.
- Split – Players can split their first two cards if they are of equal value and play them as two separate hands. There is no re-splitting allowed.
- Double down – Available on your first two cards, you can double your bet and receive one final card.
- Hit – Receive another card.
- Stand – Receive no more cards and end your turn.
Winning Perfect Blackjack
The perfect pairs bet is paid out before the classic blackjack game is paid. Players will be paid as follows:
- Perfect pair (same suit) pays 25:1
- Coloured pair (different suit; same colour) pays 12:1
- Red/black pair (different suit; different colour) pays 6:1
Players can win the blackjack game in a number of ways:
- Blackjack (Ace and a card valued at 10)
- Closer to 21 than the dealer without going over
- Under 21 while the dealer goes bust
