Why Live Dealer Blackjack?

The realistic casino experience and the thrill of interacting with a real dealer are the two main reasons why our players love the Live Dealer Blackjack games so much. You don’t need a web cam or extra software - only a stable internet connection. You’re free to watch and play the games too. Watching helps you get to grips with Blackjack before diving in.

It might seem overwhelming to new players, but trust us: there’s nothing to worry about. Online Blackjack and Live Dealer Blackjack are very similar, apart from the way in which the cards are used. Online uses algorithms, whereas multiple decks of real cards are in use throughout our Live Blackjack games.

Pros

  • Many styles of Live Blackjack games available.
  • Experience real-life casino action from your computer or mobile device.
  • Choose to chat with other players and dealers.
  • No microphone or web cam required.

Cons

  • Blackjack tables are only open when dealers are available.

Rules

The basic rules of Blackjack are simple: your hand needs to beat the dealer’s by getting as close to 21 as possible without going bust (over 21). Each of the different Blackjack Live games will come with its own set of rules in terms of betting limits, payouts, and how many hands you can play at once.

So, we’ll take the next few moments to explain the rules and different phrases you’re likely to come across whilst playing.

Firstly, you need to understand the card values:

  • Aces count as 1 or 11 points.
  • Picture cards count as 10 points.
  • All 2-10 cards count as their face value in points.
  • A total of 21 points is the perfect score, and is known as ‘Blackjack’.

Now, you’re ready to start. Here’s how the betting round opens up:

  • Select the game you wish to play, take a place at one of the open seats and wait for the next round of betting to start.
  • You will be given two cards face up; the dealer will only have one of their cards showing (the other will still be face down).
  • You now have a decision to make based upon the cards that you have and the one card that the dealer is showing. Your options are as follows:
    • Hit-Stand: If you Hit, you receive another card. If you Stand, you finish your go and stick with your two cards.
    • Split: Only available when you are dealt a matching pair of cards. Deciding to Split creates two hands. You’ll need to double your stake to carry on playing.
    • Double Down: Doubling your bet amount and receiving one more card, after which your turn is over. A hand of 7 and 4 is often a good time to Double Down.
    • Insurance: Only available when the dealer has an ace showing. This allows you to take insurance if the dealer eventually hits a Blackjack 21.
    • Surrender: In some situations, you are allowed to Surrender and retrieve a part of your bet back, though you can’t Surrender after you have decided to Hit.

Other Live Dealer Blackjack Phrases to Learn:

  • Multi-Seat: Playing multiple hands at the same time is available on some games.
  • Bet Behind: If there are no seats free at the table, you can still play by copying the decisions made by the player you ‘Bet Behind’.

Side Bets:

  • Player Pair: Win the bet if you are dealt a pair of cards with matching suits, colours, and numbers all deciding the final payout.
  • Dealer Pair: Exactly the same as above but in relation to the dealer’s cards.
  • 21+3: If your two cards and the dealer’s first card make up a Poker hand, you win — Flush, Straight Flush, Straight, Suited Three of a Kind, Three of a Kind.

Card Dealing Styles:

  • EU: Only after all the players have made their decisions can the dealer get their second card.
  • US: Dealer gets the second card before the players make their decision with their own two cards.

The in-game ‘Help’ menu that comes with every one of Live Casino games is a useful place to look if you’re ever stuck with the rules or game flow. Casino.com South Africa also features a useful ‘Help’ section below. Refer to this at any time if you get stuck.

Odds and Payouts

Our Live Dealer Blackjack games are easy to follow as all the main payouts are displayed on each game’s help menu. For quick reference, hitting Blackjack will give you 3:2 odds and all other standard wins are paid out at 1:1. For example, a $10 bet with a Blackjack win will give you $15.

The Side Bets are all paid out in relation to how you win. For example, the Perfect Pair is paid out at 25 to 1 and the 21+3 bet can return as much as 100 to 1.

If you ever need assistance with any of the Blackjack payouts, our ‘Help’ section, detailed below, will give you all need to view specific odds and payout numbers for each game.

Top 3 Live Blackjack Strategies and Tips

The main strategies and tips that revolve around Blackjack are based on the dealer hitting two 10 point cards, as can be found most in a standard deck. Playing Blackjack is very situational and the choices you need to make are constantly changing with every card that is revealed.

With this in mind, take the three following basic game strategies designed to increase your profits into account:

  1. Split: Pairs of aces and 8s should always be split. You should never split 10s and 4s — all other pairs need to be taken on the situation you are in.
  2. Double: Knowing when to Double is key in Blackjack. A good example is when you show a total of 9 and the dealer shows anything between 2 and 6 for their first card. Again, this all depends on the total of yours and the dealer’s cards.
  3. Surrender: The Surrender strategy can only be used on some of our Live Dealer Blackjack games. If you do see it available and you don’t like your cards, clicking the Surrender button will allow you to retrieve some of your bet amount.
