The clean layout ensures that everything is at hand, with all the essential items clearly marked. To the top left is a “burger-style” menu. Clicking this reveals sub-menus listings of Help, Tour, History, Game Limits, and Settings. At the base of the sub-menu, you’ll see the paytable. These can also be accessed by swiping right on the screen.
The Help Menu describes in detail all aspects of the gameplay and payouts. To learn the correct finger gestures needed to play the game on your mobile, consult the Tour Menu. History records all the previous plays and can also be assessed by swiping right on the screen. Game Limits sets the time between plays, as well as the overall session time. It’s also possible to set a maximum spend.
Almost two-thirds of the uppermost part of the screen is taken up by the game’s table itself. By changing themes you can make this dark for playing in dim lighting conditions or choose the Classic theme, with it’s familiar green baize table.
In a row below the card table, five coloured casino chips are laid out with values going from 0.50 up to 25 coins. At the very bottom of the screen, the “Undo”, “Deal” and “Clear” icons are clearly marked.
How to Play The Blackjack
First, you need to place a bet, but before you do, take note of the table betting limits. Now drag your chip/chips onto the table. Press the “Deal” button and receive two initial cards face-up. At the same time, the dealer receives two cards, though one will be face-down.
If the dealer’s face-up card is an Ace, it’s possible to purchase insurance, though it will cost you an extra half of the initial wager amount. Keep in mind that Blackjacks are ineligible for insurance.
Now you have four possible choices: Hit, Stand, Double, Split or Surrender. If the dealer has 17 or over, he will Stand. Once the hands are compared, the round is over, with the winner being the player closest to 21 without going over.
The Blackjack Payouts
All regular wins pay out at 1 to 1, with the initial bet returned to the player. If you have a Blackjack then expect to be paid out at 3 to 2. Once again, the initial bet is returned to you, as it is in the case of a Tie.
The Blackjack features a special prize of three times the bet amount for a player who receives a 6, 7, and 8 of the same suit, or three 7s, when the cards are dealt.
