Blackjack Touch - Single Deck™ (table)
Blackjack Touch - Single Deck™ is a blackjack game played with 1 hand and 1 regular deck that is shuffled before each game round.
The object of the game is to create a hand with a value that is equal to or closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand without going over.
Number cards (2-10) count as face value, Aces count as either 1 or 11, and Kings, Queens, and Jacks count as 10.
The dealer must stand on a hard 17 and hit on a soft 17.
A Soft hand is a hand with an ace that can be counted as either 1 or 11 without busting.
A Hard hand is a hand without an ace, or a hand with an ace that can only have a value of 1.
The cards are re-shuffled for each game round.
The minimum and maximum bets for the table are displayed on the MIN/MAX section of the table.
If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand without going over, you win.
Your hand automatically stands when it has a value of 21.
If your hand is 22 or higher (busted), you lose regardless of the value of the dealer’s hand.
If the dealer’s hand is closer to 21 without going over, you lose.
Hands of equal value are a push and your bet is returned.
If a hand’s first two cards total 21, it is a Blackjack.
Blackjack pays 3:2.
Blackjack always beats any other hand with a value of 21.
If the dealer’s first card is an Ace, you can buy insurance.
Insurance costs half the value of the initial bet and pays 2 to 1 if the dealer gets Blackjack.
If you take the insurance and the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance bet.
If you have Blackjack, and the dealer’s visible card is an ace, you can take even money.
Even money pays 1:1.
If the first two cards you are dealt have the same face value, you can split them into separate hands.
Only one split is allowed
Splitting will double your initial bet, and you play both hands, one after the other
After splitting Aces you will receive only one additional card for each split hand.
For all split hands except split aces, you can hit multiple times.
In a split hand, an Ace and a card with a value of 10 will be counted as 21 and not Blackjack.
You can double down only if your initial cards (excluding split cards) total 10 or 11.
The double down bet is equal to the initial bet.
After doubling, you are dealt one extra card and then your hand automatically stands.
The theoretical return to player for this game (calculated as total win/total bet with optimal strategy) is 99.59%
