Multiplayer Blackjack Surrender
We offer six deck Blackjack. If you are not familiar with Blackjack Surrender, you may want to look at the Blackjack Surrender Rules first.
A multiplayer table can have spectators and up to five players. When you join a multiplayer table, you will be a spectator at first. As a spectator, you can see the gameplay and other players’ chat, but you cannot place bets or chat yourself.
If the table has open seats, click Join to sit down at the table and start playing.
Keep in mind, that idle players and spectators can view the table for a limited number of rounds.
To play the game:
- There probably is a game round in progress at the moment you enter. Please wait until the current game round is finished.
- After a new game round begins, place your bet. Click on chips to increase your bet. Every click on a chip increases your bet by the chip value, and every shift-click decreases the bet.
- The minimum and maximum bet limits are dependent on your VIP level and are shown on the table.
- You have limited time to place your bet. A timer shows the remaining time to place bets. When you have placed your bet, click Confirm Bets to confirm your bets. Once a bet is confirmed, it cannot be removed from the table any more. You can place additional bets after confirming some bets as long as there is time left on the timer, but you have to click Confirm Bets again. Only confirmed bets participate in a game round and all unconfirmed bets are returned.
- You can click Clear Bets to remove all unconfirmed chips from the table.
- After a round in which you placed a bet, click Rebet to place the same bet as during the previous round. You still have to click Confirm Bets to confirm the bets.
- When the betting time runs out, two cards are dealt to the dealer and each player who placed a bet. The players will be asked to take their actions one at a time, starting from the first player.
- If the dealer’s face up card is an Ace, you are offered insurance. Click the Insurance button to insure against the dealer having Blackjack. To skip insurance, click Skip Insurance. After you take or skip insurance, the dealer checks for Blackjack.
- Use the Hit, Stand, Double and Split buttons as required.
- Please note that Insurance, Double and Split require an additional bet. If your balance does not have enough money to cover these expenses, you will need to deposit more money to use these options.
- You have limited time to take each action. A timer shows the remaining time to take that action. If you have not acted before the time runs out, you will automatically Stand.
- The dealer reveals the face down card and draws additional cards according to the rules.
- Your hand is compared to the dealer’s hand.

Blackjack Surrender Rules
The object of Blackjack is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards at their face value.
If you receive an ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win 1.5 times your bet (if your bet was 10, you receive 25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, you win your bet amount (if your bet was 10, you receive 20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you “bust” and lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 and up) neither of you win and your bet is returned to you in a “push”. Blackjack beats a score of 21.
Our Blackjack follows the standard “Las Vegas Strip” rules, with the following exceptions:
- After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
- The player may not split a split hand.
- Only one card is drawn to split aces.
- The player may double after splitting.
- If the dealer’s initial hand has an Ace or a ten-value card as the face up card, the dealer will check for Blackjack. If the face up card is an Ace, the dealer offers Insurance before checking for Blackjack.
- The dealer draws an additional card when the total of the dealer’s cards is 16 or less and stands when the total is 17 or greater (including soft 17s). The dealer does not draw when the player is “bust”.
If your first two cards have the same value, you may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet. You will then draw additional cards to each hand. You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, but if you split two aces, you receive only one additional card for each ace. If you receive an ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack.
If, after you are dealt your first two cards, you think that the third card will allow you to beat the dealer’s hand, you can double your bet. The bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of your balance), and you are dealt one more card.
If the dealer shows an Ace in his initial hand, you are given a chance to insure your bet against him having a Blackjack. If you get Insurance, an amount equal to half your original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. This way you do not lose your original bet (because you get the 2x half your original bet, plus the insurance amount back). If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount.
If, after the dealer has checked for Blackjack, you think that your first two cards will not allow you to beat the dealer’s hand, you can choose to surrender your hand. If you surrender, your hand automatically loses, but you get half of your original bet back. This way you do not lose the whole bet.
7 Card Charlie
It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 7 cards without going bust. In this case the player’s hand automatically wins.
7 Card Charlie is also applicable on a split hand.
|Winning Hand||1 to 1|
|Insurance||2 to 1|
|Blackjack||3 to 2|
