Blackjack Terms


You can double your original bet if your first two cards add up to nine, ten or eleven. You will only receive one more card if you double – good luck!


A side bet that the dealer gets Blackjack, and is only offered when the dealer’s first card is an Ace.  The maximum insurance bet is half your original wager. This is a house bet and is not recommended.


When you’re dealt a pair you have the option to split them and play them as separate hands.  You will need to match your original bet in order to split.  Aces and eights are the most commonly split pairs. Don’t split tens or pictures – most times you already have a winning hand.
