The hidden cards feature of Eclipse Blackjack™ allows players to douse themselves in suspense while some of the dealer’s cards remain face-down until the end of the round. This exact element of surprise is what makes Eclipse Blackjack™ a genuine thrill for casino game lovers.

Game Rules

If you're familiar with classic blackjack, it’ll be easy to understand the rules of Eclipse Blackjack™, even if you're a newbie.

These are the basics of this live dealer blackjack game:

  • Eclipse Blackjack™ uses 8 decks of 52 cards.
  • At the start of each game, you need to bet between $1 and $500.
  • Both the dealer and players receive two cards.
  • While both player cards are face-up, one of the dealer's cards remains face-down.
  • Each card corresponds to its face value, with picture cards valued at ten and aces worth one or eleven.
  • The dealer has to draw on 16 and stand on 17.
  • Splitting pairs is allowed, but you can do it only once per hand.
  • If the dealer’s face-up card is an ace, players get offered insurance to protect against a potential dealer's blackjack.
  • Side bets can be placed in combination with the main bet; they are not standalone wagers.

When it comes to gameplay, you can go for the following strategies and stick to the one that’s most suitable for your playing style:

  • In a paired hand, you can split aces and eights, but not fours, fives, or tens.
  • In a hard hand, one that does not contain an ace, you can choose to stand or hit.
  • When playing a soft hand, one that does include an ace, you can also stand or hit, although standing is a better option.

The Soft Hand is easily the best basic Eclipse Blackjack™ strategy to rely on, especially if you’re just starting out.

Betting Expert Techniques and Live Dealer Options

Just like in the classic game, the endgame of Eclipse Blackjack™ online is to beat the dealer without exceeding a total of twenty-one points. Whether you’re trying your luck at Ultimate Blackjack with Olivia or Eclipse Blackjack™, all expert techniques have one thing in common: the best hand possible is an Ace with a ten-value card, better known as Blackjack or Natural 21.

It's necessary to highlight that the return-to-player rate of 99.44% might decrease when side bets are on the table. This is a common practice since side bets typically offer higher payouts.

OnAir Entertainment™ has taken Eclipse Blackjack™ to the next level by incorporating five exciting side bets into the game. It's worth mentioning that these side bets are not standalone wagers and must be placed in conjunction with your main bet.

To simplify the process, there’s a convenient Place All Side Bets button, allowing players to place all side bets with a single click. The casino offers 14 different languages to play in; plus, you can always engage in a chat with a live dealer.
