How To Play Blackjack: A Quick Guide

Blackjack is a simple game with a lot of stories, legend, Hollywood movies, and other lore surrounding it. At its core, however, it’s an easy game to play, and Casumo is a great place to give it a try. 

Put simply, the aim of blackjack is to beat the dealer without going over 21. So, how do you do that?

Steps for playing live blackjack:

  1. Select the live blackjack table you’d like to join based on your budget and preferences and “take a seat” at the virtual table facing the live dealer

  2. Place your bet in the betting area

  3. The dealer will deal two cards face up to each player and two cards for him or herself. One of the dealer’s cards is face up and the other face down. 

The value of the cards are as follows:

  • 2-10: what you see on the card  (for example, the 4 of Clubs is worth four points)

  • Face cards (jack, queen, king): 10 points

  • Ace: 1 or 11 points, depending on which value helps the player beat the dealer

Your options: 

  1. Hit - ask for another card

  2. Stand - stick with the cards you already have

  3. Double Down - increase your initial bet by 100% and stand after one more card (you won’t be able to keep hitting if you chose this option)

  4. Split - if the first two cards of your hand have the same value, you can split them into two hands, each bet equal to the original bet. Keep in mind that if you split a hand with 2 Aces, you’ll have to stand after one card. Also, Ace + 10 in a split hand doesn’t equal a Blackjack (you will get a normal 1:1 payout)

  5. Surrender

Payouts in Live Blackjack 

  • When the player gets a blackjack and beats the dealer’s card, the ratio of the payout is 3:2

  • The payout would be 1:1 if you beat the dealer’s hand without a blackjack. 

  • No money will exchange hands if you and the dealer get the same value (called a push)

Side Bets in Live Blackjack

In most blackjack games, you can also place two types of side bets: Perfect Pairs and 21+3. These enable you to win extra money on top of your regular bet. 

Perfect Pairs

If you place a Perfect Pairs side bet, you can win when the first 2 cards dealt to you by the dealer form any sort of pair, such as 2 Aces or 2 Queens. There are 3 types of pairs, each with a different payout:

  • Perfect Pair - same suit (such as 2 Aces of hearts)

  • Coloured Pair - different suits of the same colour (like 3 of Diamonds and 3 of Hearts)

  • Mixed Pair -  different suits of a different colour (such as 9 of Diamonds and 9 of Clubs)

21+3

The 21+3 side bet gives you the chance to win if your first 2 cards + the dealer’s up card make any of the following combinations:

  • Suited Trips - an identical triplet (3 Queens of Hearts, for example)

  • Straight Flush - in numerical sequence and same suit (such as the 10, Jack and Queen of Diamonds)

  • Three of a Kind - same value but different suits (like three  non-matching Queens)

  • Straight - in numerical sequence but different suits (such as 2 of Spades, 3 of Clubs and 4 of Hearts)

  • Flush - non-sequential cards in the same suit (for example, the 2, 6 and 10 of Clubs)

Dealer standing at 17 & insurance in live blackjack

Something to keep in mind is that in blackjack the player has to play by certain rules. Unlike the players, the house is bound to certain rules that help players predict the outcome of any given hand. The dealer is obligated to “stand at 17”, meaning that once their hand equals 17, they won’t hit. Similarly, the dealer must “draw to 16”. If the dealer’s hand adds up to less than 16 points then they have to hit. 

If the dealer has an ace for an up card, everyone at the table has the option to take out insurance. Insurance is a type of side bet that can be taken only in this instance. It prevents players from losing their entire bet if the dealer gets blackjack. With insurance, if the dealer gets blackjack, players get their original wager back but lose the insurance. If the dealer doesn’t get blackjack, the house takes the insurance bet and normal play continues. In both cases, any win is paid as normal.

How to pick a live blackjack table

Casumo has tables for all budgets with betting ranges of £5 to £5,000. We offer Casumo Exclusive Blackjack tables as well as tables from four leading live blackjack providers.

At Casumo, we have a whole lotta blackjack variants to play live. Make sure to review the rules before playing a new type of blackjack, and remember you can always observe others play a few hands before betting. 

Speaking of other players, you can opt to bet behind a player who is already seated. This is a great option if all the seats at a table are taken, or if you simply prefer to wager on another player’s cards. If they win, you win, if not, well…that’s why it’s a good idea to observe a player for a few hands to see if they have a grasp on the rules of the game.

Live Blackjack Game Variants

There’s a live blackjack table to suit every player’s style and betting budget, from the smooth notes of the classic casino experience to Evolution’s more fun variants like Infinite Blackjack.

The aim of the game in the design of Live Blackjack is to deliver the ambience and experience of live casino games but for online players.  Just like you would at a Vegas casino, you can lay a bet on the table and wait in real time as the dealer distributes the cards. You decide whether to hit or stand and watch as the game unfolds. Through live games, everyone can experience the real deal and feel of a brick-and-mortar casino, engaging with the dealer as you play.

Each game developer has its take on what an authentic casino includes (from the lighting to the number of tables in a studio, the dealer’s demeanor, game rules, and so on). This leads to several different variants and styles of live games. 

While it might sound a little overwhelming, it’s not; it simply means you’ve got a top-notch selection of games to pick from. Here are some of the most popular titles you’ll find in the Casumo Live Blackjack lobby.

Infinite Blackjack

Infinite Blackjack was created by live casino industry leaders, Evolution Gaming. Played with eight decks, it’s infinite because the number of players at the table is not limited. It follows standard blackjack rules with four side bets: Pairs, 21+3, Hot 3, Bust It, and the 6 Card Charlie Rule. 

This game is best for players who don’t want to wait for their seat at the table and are looking for lower starting bets. Maximum bets with Infinite Blackjack are usually £5,000, and the maximum payout is 250:1 for winning the Bust It side bet.

Quantum Blackjack

Created by Playtech, Quantum Blackjack delivers a live twist on a classic game with boosted payouts of up to 499:1 and random game multipliers. Played with a community hand (players’ views change depending on their game moves) and eight decks, the number of players is unlimited. A side deck is also used, dealing 1-3 cards with a mystery multiplier attached. Should any player get a matching card, the multiplier is awarded if a win occurs.

First Person Blackjack

Using superior 3D rendering and an animated environment, First Person Blackjack is a hybrid variant from Evolution Gaming. This variant features Perfect Pairs, 21+3, and bets offered on 1-5 hands. 

First Person Blackjack is the non-live mirrored version of the game that has a “Go Live” button that’ll take you straight to the live game. This allows you to get to grips with the game, test out the bet limits, and, when you’re ready, go live for more blackjack action - it’s that easy, and bets start from £0.50-1,000 with max payouts of 100:1.

Casumo Exclusive Blackjack Tables

If you’re looking for something extra special, then head straight for our Casumo exclusive live dealers. Designed with our player’s in mind, we’ve got a bespoke collection of live dealer tables that’ll suit up your gaming style and deliver the live-action you´ve looking for.
