Live Blackjack Gambling Rules

Live Blackjack players are allotted a time to place bets prior to receiving any cards, in order to participate the Player must place a wager. Once the wager is made and the timer done, the Player is dealt two cards face up. The Dealer is also dealt two cards. If the total value of the Player's cards is closer to 21 than the Dealer, the Player wins as much as was wagered. The Player also wins if the Dealer goes over 21 and the Player has not busted. If the Player's total goes over 21, the Player loses the amount wagered.

Live Blackjack Rules

Skybook Live Blackjack uses an eight deck shoe. The face cards - jack, queen and king, all have a value of 10, aces count as either 1 or 11, and the remaining cards are worth their face value. If your hand exceeds 21, you bust and automatically lose the hand. If you have the same card total as the dealer, from 17 and up, no one wins and you get your wager back in a push. The dealer must stand on 17 and above and draw on 16 and below. If the dealer's face-up card is an ace, you will be asked if you wish to buy insurance.

Our live blackjack game allows different players to play the same hand simultaneously with decision to hit, stand, double or split. Every player has equal amount of time (10 seconds) to decide which action to take.

Player Moves/Actions For Live Blackjack

  • Insurance - Gives you a chance to protect yourself when you believe the Dealer might have Blackjack. If the Dealer's first card is an ace, and the Player believes the Dealer's hole card (face down) value is 10, the Player may purchase insurance against Dealer Blackjack at the price of half their initial bet. If the Dealer does have Blackjack, the insurance pays 2 to 1, which corresponds to the amount of the initial bet. If the Player has bought insurance and the Dealer does not have Blackjack, the Player loses his insurance. The Player's initial bet is then settled by comparing his cards with the Dealer's. If the Dealer and the Player both have Blackjack, the game results in a push with the Player profiting by the amount won by taking insurance - also called "even money".
  • Bet - To place a bet, the Player must click on the chip value that they wish to wager.
  • Deal - Press Deal to begin the game once a wager has been placed. The Player gets two cards face up and the Dealer gets two cards.
  • Hit - Player desires another card to be dealt. The Player may take a hit at any time before standing.
  • Stand - Player desires to keep hand dealt.
  • Split - If the Player's first two cards are of the same value (i.e. 7, 7, or Q, K) they may be split into 2 separate hands by placing a second wager of equal value. The Player then proceeds to draw cards as usual, with these exceptions: If a Player splits two aces, only one additional card is dealt for each hand. A hand totaling 21 after splitting aces is considered 21, not Blackjack.
  • Double - When a Player has been dealt the first two cards and believes that the third card will give them a position to beat the Dealer's hand, they can "double down." The wager is doubled, and one additional card is dealt to the Player. The hand is automatically stood, and the Dealer then completes its hand comparing it to the Players' total.
  • Blackjack - Is achieved when first two cards total 21. Blackjack beats a score of 21 consisting of 3 or more cards.
  • Bust - Is achieved when total value of cards for either the Dealer or the Player exceeds 21. If the Player busts the wager is lost, if the Dealer busts the Player automatically wins the wager.
  • Push - Is achieved when the value of the Dealer's cards (from 17 to 21) and the Player's cards are equal resulting in neither winning. It also results in the return of the Player's wager.
