iPad Blackjack: Introduction

Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games in the world, brought to your iPad by mobile casino game developer Spin3.

Your aim in iPad Blackjack is to beat the Dealer’s hand. You can do this by getting a better hand of cards (without exceeding 21 in total), by the Dealer’s hand going bust.

If you win by scoring a “Blackjack”, which is a card total of 21, you receive a payout of 3:2 on your original stake. If you have any other type of winning hand, you receive a payout of 1:1 on your original bet.

If you lose against a Dealer’s Blackjack but have taken Insurance (see below), you are paid out at odds of 2:1 on your Insurance bet.

iPad Blackjack: How to Play

To start playing iPad Blackjack, set your bet amount by using the plus and minus buttons. Press Deal to start playing. Use the commands Hit, Stand, Split or Double to select your next option.

iPad Blackjack: Basic Rules

  • iPad Blackjack is played according to Classic Blackjack rules, with a normal 52 card deck. The deck is shuffled before each game.
  • Blackjack always beats any other hand with a value of 21.
  • All face cards, i.e. Jacks, Kings and Queens, are worth 10.
  • Aces can have a value of either 1 or 11.
  • You may take up to nine extra cards to make a hand of eleven cards, provided the value of your hand does not exceed 21. If your hand is not more than 21 after receiving the 11 cards, your hand automatically Stands, and the Dealer plays his hand.
  • The Dealer Stands on all 17.
  • The Dealer’s hand is dealt according to the rules of the iPad casino you are playing at. Contact your casino for more information.

iPad Blackjack: Betting and Payouts

  • If the Dealer’s hand is more than 21, it is “Bust”, and you automatically win.
  • If you are dealt an Ace and a card with a value of 10, you have Blackjack. Your hand automatically stands. Your hand can only be matched, not beaten. If you beat the Dealer with Blackjack you are paid out at odds of 3:2.
  • When yours and the Dealer’s hands are tied, it is called a Push. Your original stake is refunded.
  • If your hand and the Dealer’s hand both score Blackjack (21), this is also a Push. Your original stake is refunded.
  • If the Dealer scores Blackjack after you have Hit, Split or Double Down, you lose your entire bet – original plus any other amounts.

iPad Blackjack: Splitting

  • You can Split two cards that have the same Denomination, such as two Queens or two Fours.
  • Your hand is divided into two separate hands and a bet equal to your original bet is placed on the second hand.
  • Cards of the same Value cannot be Split in Classic Blackjack. For example, a King and a Ten have the same numerical value, but cannot be split because the cards are not the same denomination.
  • If you split a pair of Aces and then draw a card with a value of 10, this is not Blackjack, although it has a value of 21.
  • You can Split Aces in Classic Blackjack.
  • You can Split a maximum of once per hand. This equals two hands.

iPad Blackjack: Double Down

  • You can Double Down when your hand has a value of 9, 10 or 11. You are dealt one card and your hand automatically Stands.
  • The Double Down bet is equal to your original bet.
  • You cannot Double Down after a Split.
  • You can only Double Down once per hand.

iPad Blackjack: Insurance

  • You can take Insurance if the Dealer’s first card is an Ace.
  • The Insurance bet is equal to half your original bet amount.
  • Insurance bet wins or losses are independent from your original stake.
  • You can only take Insurance on your original hand. You cannot take Insurance after a Hit, Split, or a Double Down bet. This means you can only take Insurance when the Dealer has one card face-up and you have received two cards.
  • The Insurance bet is taken away if the Dealer does not achieve Blackjack. The cost of the bet is taken from your balance, and play continues.
  • If the Dealer gets Blackjack, the Insurance bet is paid out at odds of 2:1.
