An all-time favorite Casino game, Blackjack is played against the Dealer. There are two ways to win: beat the Dealer's hand or
making the Dealer's hand burst. The decks form a shoe and the entire shoe is shuffled before each game. The dealer is
forced to stand on all hands of 17, and blackjack beats any hand of 21 value. You can apply standard Playtech
strategy charts as a guide to this game.
You are offered the option of placing an Insurance bet whenever the Dealer is showing an Ace. The Insurance bet
equals to half of your initial bet. The Insurance bet pays out at odds of 2:1. In case the Dealer actually is not
holding a Blackjack, you forfeit the Insurance bet.
