How To Find And Play Live Blackjack

While playing blackjack online offers convenience, our live blackjack tables bring an extra level of excitement and interaction, making it a more immersive and enjoyable option.

How To Play

  1. Place your bets: Before the game starts, place your bet within the table limits.
  2. Receive your cards: After bets are placed, the live blackjack dealer will deal two cards to each player, including themselves, with the aim of getting as close to 21 as possible without exceeding it.
  3. Make decisions: Depending on your hand and the face-up card of the dealer, you can make decisions such as Hit, Stand, Double Down or Split.
  4. Comparison and payouts: After all players have made their decisions, the dealer will reveal their face-down card and must hit or stand according to the house rules. Payouts are made to winners, and new rounds begin for subsequent hands.
