Exclusive Blackjack 1 Overview
As one of the most popular games available at land-based and online casinos alike, Blackjack is widely considered to be a favourite among players looking for a simple game to pick up and play with minimal experience. The aim of the game is to end up with a hand that is closer to 21 than the dealer’s - without going bust. Hosted by a live dealer, you can join other like-minded players as you play for prizes in a virtual studio setting.
Stakes & Bets
As you load up the game, you may find yourself with a ‘wait for next game’ screen - this means you’re unable to get involved in the current round as betting had already closed by the time you entered. When betting re-opens, you’ll get to place your bets according to your budget. If you’ve ever tried your hand at blackjack before, be it in a land-based or online environment, you may be aware of side bets. Exclusive Blackjack 1 provides the opportunity to place these in addition to your main bet, with options including 21+3 and Perfect Pairs.
If your first two cards and the dealer’s upcard result in any of the following outcomes, you will win this side bet, with each outcome offering a different payout:
- Suited Trips: Identical triplets, e.g. three Kings of Spades (pays 100:1)
- Straight Flush: Cards of the same suit, in ascending order, e.g. a 10, Jack, and Queen - all of Diamonds (pays 40:1)
- Three of a Kind: Three cards of the same value but different suits, e.g. King of Diamonds, King of Hearts, and King of Clubs (pays 30:1)
- Straight: Differing suits, but in ascending order, e.g. 3 of Spades, 4 of Diamonds, and 5 of Hearts (pays 10:1)
- Flush: Three cards of the same suit, e.g. 4 of Diamonds, 8 of Diamonds, and King of Diamonds (pays 5:1)
In this side bet, you will bet on the likelihood of your first two cards being a pair with three possible pair outcomes paying out uniquely:
- Perfect Pair: Two identical cards, e.g. two Queens of Hearts (pays 25:1)
- Coloured Pair: Two cards of the same value and colour but different suits, e.g. 4 of Diamonds and 4 of Hearts (pays 12:1)
- Mixed Pair: Two cards of the same value but different colours, e.g. 4 of Diamonds and 4 of Clubs (pays 6:1)
