European Blackjack GOLD
Slingo is excited to introduce European Blackjack GOLD – the online table game that really lives up to its name! Take on the dealer and see if you can walk away with some golden wins…
There’s loads of opportunities to get your hands on a good win in this game, what with the Double Down option and the chance to split your cards and play two hands at once. Let’s see if you’ve got what it takes…
How To Play
To get your golden Blackjack show on the road, all you need to do is select a chip from the chip selector and then tap the betting area to place your bet. You can undo your bet at any time by clicking CLEAR BET. You can increase your bet after you’ve placed it – each time you click your chip pile it will be increased by one chip. When you’re satisfied with the bets you’ve placed, the fun can really begin!
You and the dealer will each receive 2 cards – both of yours will be face-up, and only one of the dealer’s will be face-up. The aim of the game is to get a hand with a higher value than the dealer’s hand, without exceeding 21. Blackjack is a combination of an Ace and a card with a value of 10. All face cards have a value of 10, whilst Aces can have a value of either 1 and 11. On your quest to win, both you and the dealer can draw up to an extra 9 cards to make a hand of 11. If you choose to HIT you’ll be given an additional card, choose STAND and you’ll end the game without receiving any more cards. With us so far? Good. Blackjack cannot be beaten, only matched, so let’s hope the dealer doesn’t get Blackjack!
If your hand is looking good and you think you’re in with a chance of beating the dealer, you can Double Down on your first two cards – but only if they have a value of 9, 10 or 11. When you double down, you receive an extra card, and your double down bet is the same as your regular bet amount.
If you fancy heating up your game and playing two hands at once, you can split two cards that have the same denomination. Then a bet that is the same as your regular bet will be placed on the second hand. You’ll receive a new card in each hand, but you can no longer achieve Blackjack if you’ve split a pair of Aces and then get a card with a value of 10. Plus, you can only split once during your game, so make sure you choose the best moment!
What’s the dealer’s face-up card looking like? Do you think he’s in with a chance of getting Blackjack? You can’t let that happen! In order to prevent this catastrophe, you can take out an insurance bet, which will be worth half of your regular bet amount and will only cover your original hand (so not your split hand). You’ll win the insurance bet if the dealer does get Blackjack, and it’ll pay out at odds of 2:1. Nice! However, if you were wrong and the dealer doesn’t get Blackjack, you’ll lose the bet and the amount will be deducted from your credit balance. Nevermind, Blackjack legend, you win some, you lose some… Let’s hope it’s the former! Good luck!
