Not everyone has played Blackjack before so if you are an old professional then this section may not be of interest to you, however if you are new to playing Blackjack either online or offline then you may find this section of our website valuable at here we will enlighten you to all their is to know about playing Blackjack in terms of the wagers you can make, the payouts offered and the many different betting decisions you will have to make.

The first thing to point out when playing live Blackjack is that you can set the stake levels you are playing each hand for yourself, you will find both a minimum and maximum permitted stake sign on each live blackjack table and as long as your wager falls in between these two amounts then you are good to go.

To place a wager simply point and click your chip or chips in the betting box directly in front of you on the live blackjack table layout and once all the other players have placed their wager then the dealer will start to deal out the cards, each player will get two cards dealt to them and they are dealt out face upwards, the dealer then deals him or herself one face up card and then each player will have to take it in turn to decide how they wish to play their hand.

Stand - If you decide to stand your hand then you will simply be happy with the two cards you have been dealt and will not be dealt any additional playing cards, to stand simply click on the stand button when it is your turn to make a decision, the dealer will then move onto the next player.

Double Down - If you want to get dealt another playing card and if the game play rules allow you to do just that then one way you can do that is by doubling down, here you will need to place another wager onto the table layout which has to be an equal amount than that of your initial stake for that game, once you have placed this double down wager you will be dealt that additional card.

Hit - When you hit your hand you are being dealt an additional card from the dealer to your hand, however unlike the double down wager above you will not be charged anything for hitting your hand, and therefore you can keep hitting until you are satisfied with the value of your hand, but be careful as you may bust out your hand if you hit and the value of it goes over a total of twenty one!

Split - Some live Blackjack games will let you split your hand when you have been dealt a pair or two cards of the same value such as ten and a queen etc, when you split a hand your initial two cards are moved apart and these are then classed as two new hands with an additional card being dealt to each one, when you split a hand you need to place a new wager equal to your initial wager onto the table to cover this new hand, sometimes you can keep on splitting a hand but more often than not if you have been dealt a pair of aces then only one card will be dealt to each of them and they can never be re-split.

Surrender - Some live blackjack games will let you surrender your hand when you feel it has no chance of winning, when you surrender your hand you are effectively giving the hand up and will not be able to play it any more, as a reward for giving up your hand you will be given back half of your initial stake, so when faced with a potentially unbeatable dealers hand this surrender options is a good one.

Insurance - When the dealer could possibly have a Blackjack hand he or she will offer you what is known as an insurance wager, here you can place a wager which must be half the value as your initial wager made on that particular hand of blackjack and if the dealer ends up having a blackjack hand which is any ten valued card and an ace then you get paid out at winning odds of 2 to 1.
