To place a bet, select a chip value and place it in each circle of the Blackjack table.  You can bet from $1 to $1000, in multiples of $1, $5, $25 and $100 chips.  To bet the same amount as in your last hand played, click on REBET.

Once your bet is placed, the cards will be dealt from right to left on your screen.  From there you decide on the settle option you’d like to choose according to the settings you have enabled and the action buttons displayed.

All the special options that this game has are turned OFF by default.  If you wish to turn them on, click on the Settings icon at the top left corner of the game screen and enable the ones you would like to benefit from.

Clicking on SETTLE will finish the hand in question and you will be paid the amount displayed on the yellow bubble.  Clicking on CONTINUE will allow you to continue playing the hand.

There are 4 special features that you can turn ON/OFF from the “Game Options” section of the game, under “Settings”:

  • First Card Settle
  • First Two Cards Settle
  • Settle After Double
  • Dealer Turn Card Settle

First Card Settle

Enabling this setting will give you the option to settle your bets after seeing the first card that you are dealt.  If the option SETTLE is clicked in this instance, the amount displayed on the bubble will be immediately paid to your account and the hand will be over.

First Two Cards Settle

Enabling this setting will give you the option to settle your bet after seeing both cards you were dealt but before the dealer deals its own cards.  If the option SETTLE is clicked in this instance, the amount displayed on the bubble will be immediately paid to your account and the hand will be over.

Settle After Double

Enabling this setting will give you the option to settle your bet after you have seen the cards you were dealt for hitting the Double button, but before the dealer deals its own cards.  If the option SETTLE is clicked in this instance, the amount displayed on the bubble will be immediately paid to your account and the hand will be over.

Dealer Turn Card Settle

Enabling this setting will give you the option to settle your bet after seeing both of the dealer’s cards but before the dealer hits (in case needed).  If the dealer must hit again and hasn’t reached 17, you will be offered again the SETTLE or CONTINUE options.  If the option SETTLE is clicked in this instance, the amount displayed on the bubble will be immediately paid to your account and the hand will be over.

Some of the options you will have available AFTER the cards are dealt to you will have a specific dollar value on a yellow bubble over each action button.  These yellow bubbles will be displayed over certain buttons that do not exactly follow basic Blackjack strategy.  The value in the yellow bubble will depend on the bet amount and will increase or decrease according to the probability of losing or winning the hand if that option is selected.

The amounts displayed in the yellow bubbles will add to your balance whether you win or lose the hand(s).  Hitting an option with no yellow bubble over it will not add extra value to your play but will follow basic Blackjack strategy.

In case the dealer has a 10 valued card and you have all the Game Options enabled, the first buttons that will be displayed are SETTLE and CONTINUE.  The value displayed in the yellow bubble will depend on the wager amount and possibility of the hand winning or losing against the dealer as explained above.
