Game details:

MULTI-HAND BLACKJACK – FIVE HANDS AGAINST THE BANK

You’ve decided to play online blackjack? Excellent! After all, it is the most popular casino game in the world! In the multi-hand version, you play up to five hands against the bank, which increases your chances of winning at our safe online casino!

Is blackjack a complete stranger to you? Maybe you just don’t even know that you have already played this popular casino game: This card game has been around in the western world for hundreds of years and is also known as ’21’. That basically describes what the goal of online blackjack is: You have to try to get as close as you can to 21 points without going over. If you stay below 21 and the dealer has more (and doesn’t exceed 21 himself), then you lose. If you go over 21, then it’s a bust and you also lose… but otherwise you win! Well, not necessarily. A tie is also possible.

HIT AND STAND

Blackjack is actually pretty simple. Online blackjack is only played against the dealer. First you place a bet on your hand. In the multi-hand version, however, you pretend that you have multiple personalities and play for up to five players. All players only play against the dealer – not against each other. You bet on each hand individually, so you can place different bets on each hand, but these are blind bets, i.e. you place them before you know what’s in your hand. Then you are dealt two cards per hand, and the dealer just gets one first. Face cards count for 10, and the ace can be worth either 1 or 11. If your first two cards are way below 21, then you can get another card by clicking on the yellow ‘hit’ button. If you click on ‘stand’ you signalise that you have enough cards. However, if you go over 21 on your last card, then you’re out of the game and lose your bet for that hand. A little yellow arrow indicates which hand you are currently playing. After your last ‘stand’, it’s the dealer’s turn. The hand that has more points than the dealer’s hand at the end of the round wins, unless the dealer goes over 21 – then you win too. Normally, the payout is 2:1. If you manage to get an online blackjack though, i.e. and ace and a face card, then it is counted as 21+, and you immediately win 3:2. If your hand has the same number of points as the dealer, you get your bet back.

FIVE HANDS PLUS DEALER = SIX HANDS

Because this casino game is so popular, there are a lot of different rule variations. That’s why it is important to agree on the house rules before beginning the game, and if various rules are possible at the same casino, then to make sure you understand the table rules.

So, these are the house and table rules for Multi-Hand Blackjack at our safe online casino:

  • In each game, there are six decks of cards in play (that all come from the same pile). The cards are remixed after every round.

  • Doubling your bet is only possible after the first two cards have been dealt. Then you automatically get another (last) card.

  • Three Split Maximum: If you are dealt two cards with the same value at the beginning of the round, you can split them and play on with two new hands. If you again have two of the same cards in one of the split hands, you are allowed to split again for the last time. If both new hands from the split have the two same cards, then you can only split one of them. If you want to split two aces, you are only allowed to draw one further card. Aces and tens in a split hand do not count as blackjack but as 21.

  • If the dealer’s first card is an ace, you can take out insurance on half of your active bet to protect your hand from the threat of blackjack. If the dealer does happen to get blackjack, you lose your original bet, but win 2:1 on the insurance (which means a tie). If the dealer does not draw a blackjack, then you forfeit your insurance, and the bets are a counted as in any other normal game.

  • The dealer stands on a soft 17: The dealer has to stop as soon as he reaches or exceeds 17. And his aces must count as 11 – unless he would be forced to exceed 21 when it is drawn. In that case, the ace only counts as 1. If the dealer has an ace and a six, for example, he has to count the ace as 11 and the entire hand as 17, i.e. he is not allowed to draw another card.

But enough said. Try your luck against the dealer by playing Multi-Hand Blackjack online.
