Single Hand Blackjack by Rival Gaming Full Review
Among the most popular table games in the world, players can experience the excitement of yelling 21 in single-hand Blackjack game from Rival Powered! Winning with a blackjack will pay 3:2 while wins outside of blackjacks pay 1:1 on the original wager. The aim is to beat the Dealer hand by either getting a higher value hand, without exceeding 21, or by the Dealer hand going bust.
Winning hands in Blackjack payout as follows:
If you win with a Blackjack, which consists of an ace and either a face card or a ten, you are paid out at odds of 3:2 on your original wager. In other words, you win one and a half times your original wager plus you keep your original wager.
If you have a winning hand but not a Blackjack, you are paid out at odds of 1:1 on your original wager.
If you lose against a Dealer’s Blackjack and have taken Insurance, you are paid out at odds of 2 to 1 on your Insurance wager. In other words, if you were to take Insurance for half of your wager and the Dealer draws a Blackjack, you get your original wager amount back and break even.
To play a game of Blackjack you follow these steps:
- Select a chip size by clicking on one of the chip denomination that you want.
- Place a wager by clicking inside one or more of the betting circles in the play area. In multi-hand Blackjack you can place bets in more than one betting circle. In single hand Blackjack you can only place bets in the centre betting circle. Continue clicking inside a betting circle to increase your bet. To decrease the size of your bet, click with the right mouse button inside a betting circle.
- Once you have the chips in at least one betting circle, click the Deal button. The Dealer will deal two cards to you and two cards to the Dealer. The Dealer is dealt two cards, one card face-up and one card face-down.
At this stage, depending on the cards you are dealt, you have several choices. Your choices are:
Hit – have the Dealer to deal you another card from the deck.
Stand – you do not wish to receive anymore cards. The dealer will then play his hand in order to complete the game.
Split – if you are dealt two of the same card you may split your hand into two separate hands and play them separately. Splitting requires an additional wager equal to your original wager. A new card is dealt to each hand. You may Split a maximum of 3 times per game except in the case of aces which can only be split once.
Double Down – place a side wager equal to your original bet (effectively doubline your bet) and have the Dealer deal you one more card from the deck. You will not be able to hit after doubling down.
Take Insurance – insure your hand against a Dealer blackjack. Clicking the Insurance button places a wager equal to half your original bet against the Dealer getting a Blackjack. This choice is only available when the dealer is showing an Ace.
The Dealer checks for a Blackjack when he is dealt either a ten, a face card or an Ace. If the Dealer has a Blackjack, the game is over. Blackjack always beats any other hand with a value of 21. All face cards – Jacks, Kings and Queens, have a value of 10. Aces can have a value of either 1 or 11. You may draw up to nine additional cards to make a hand of eleven cards, provided the value of your hand does not exceed 21. If your hand does not exceeded 21 after receiving eleven cards, your hand automatically Stands, and the Dealer plays his hand. The Dealer Hits on a soft 17.
Betting and Payout Rules
Removing bets: To remove chips from the betting areas, position your mouse over the bet area and use the minus (-) key on your keyboard to remove the selected chip. If the Dealer’s hand exceeds 21, the dealer has busted and you automatically win. If you are dealt an Ace and a card with a value of 10, you have Blackjack. Your hand automatically Stands. Your hand cannot be beaten, only tied. If you beat the Dealer with Blackjack you are paid out at odds of 3:2. When your hand and the Dealer’s hand tie, it is called a push. Your wager is returned to you. If both the player and the Dealer are dealt a Blackjack it is considered a push. If the Dealer gets Blackjack after you have Split or Doubled Down, the entire wager amount is lost.
You can Split two cards that have the same Rank or Value. For example, a Queen and a Ten, or two Fours. Your hand is divided into two separate hands and a wager equal to your original wager is placed on the second hand.
If you Split a pair of Aces and then draw a card with a value of 10, this is not Blackjack, although it has a value of 21.
This rule also applies to splitting pairs of cards with a value of 10.You can Split a maximum number of 3 times per game, equaling 4 hands.This rule excludes Aces. Aces are only Split once.
