The game will stretch your skills to the limit but, if you play with optimal strategy and manage to defeat the dealer with all your hands, then your winnings could be huge.
How to Play Fast Blackjack
As with all Blackjack games, the aim of Fast Blackjack is to build hands that are as close in value to 21 as possible but without exceeding 21 and going bust. If a hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s is then it wins, and this way you can win up to 12 hands per round.
In Fast Blackjack, the numbered cards are worth their face values, the picture cards (Jack, Queen and King) are all worth 10, and Aces are worth either 1 or 11. This means that you can form a hand of 21 with just two cards, an Ace and a ten card, this is called Blackjack and it is the strongest possible hand.
At the start of a round, you will see 12 hand positions on the table. You need to place a bet on each position that you want to play, you can play anything from one to twelve. When you have placed your bets just click on ‘Deal’ and two cards are dealt face up to each position. At the same time, the dealer receives one face up card and once face down.
Next, you need to go through each hand and choose whether to ‘Stand’, ‘Hit’, or ‘Double’. If you select ‘Stand’ then the hand remains as is. If you select ‘Hit’ then another card will be dealt to that hand. If you select ‘Double’ then that hand’s bet is doubled and another card will be dealt to it. When you have made your decisions click on ‘Confirm’ and the appropriate actions will be carried out. You can then repeat the process for any hands for which you have not gone bust, have not doubled, or have not stood on.
When you have finished the dealer will play his hand. He will always draw more cards until his hand is worth at least 17. At the end of a round, all winning hands are paid at 1:1 except for Blackjack, which pays at 3:2. If both you and the dealer have the same hand then the bet is returned as a push,
