Lucky Lucky Blackjack
It's taken North America by storm, and now it's crossing the ocean to let you experience the excitement! Lucky Lucky Blackjack gives you the option to place a side bet, adding even more fun to the usual Blackjack buzz.
Go against the dealer in this online casino game, played with 6 decks of 52 cards and offering you the chance to play up to three hands at a time. Can you beat the dealer and get your hands on a big win?
How to play
Not only is this game super entertaining, but it's also very easy to play. Placing your bet couldn't be simpler - just click the desired chip value from the chip selector at the bottom of the screen and then click on the blackjack bet position to place your bet. Easy peasy! You can play up to three hands at once on tablet and desktop, but you can only play one hand on mobile - so hop on desktop to turn up the heat!
Placing the Lucky Lucky Bet
How lucky are you feeling? Let's hope this side bet lives up to its name when you place it! All you have to do is place the side bet in the same way as your main bet - by selecting the desired chip value and placing it in the bet position. You can only place your side bet once you have placed your main bet. When you're happy with your bets, you can hit DEAL to get your brilliant Blackjack show on the road! Exciting. You can click UNDO at any stage while you're placing your bets to rectify any mistakes, but you cannot do this after you have clicked DEAL - so make sure you're satisfied before you take the plunge!
Once your side bet has been settled, you'll be asked to play your first hand of Blackjack. Blackjack pros will be able to play this game with their eyes closed, but it's very straightforward for beginners too! The aim is to beat the dealer by getting a hand value total that is higher than that of the dealer but without exceeding 21.
If your first two cards dealt total 21, you've got Blackjack! This means you'll win 3-2 on your blackjack bet, unless the dealer also has blackjack. If the dealer doesn't have blackjack, then your blackjack bet will be settled automatically and no further action will be required. However, if the dealer does have blackjack your bet will be pushed, meaning that the hands will tie and your original bet will be returned to you.
If the dealer's face up card is an Ace there's a good chance he/she will get Blackjack, so you can make an insurance bet just in case this happens. You can choose ‘no' to dismiss the insurance bet, ‘no to all' to dismiss the insurance bet for all your hands, ‘Yes' to agree to the insurance bet for this hand only (it will be equal to 50% of your original blackjack bet) and ‘yes to all' to apply insurance bets (equal to 50% of your original blackjack bet) to all of your hands. If the dealer DOES have blackjack, you'll win the Insurance bet and you'll be paid 2-1. If the dealer does NOT have blackjack, you lose the Insurance bet and the stake is removed from the table.
If your first 2 cards have a combined total value of 9, 10 or 11 then you will be offered the chance to ‘Double Down,' which means that you can double your initial blackjack bet and you'll receive just one additional card.
Hit or Stand
If you don't get blackjack and you haven't been offered Insurance or Double Down options, then normal game play continues and you will be presented with a Green HIT button and the red STAND button. If you choose to HIT, you'll get an extra card to add to the value of your hand. If this total is still less than 21 you'll be asked to HIT or STAND again. You can keep choosing ‘HIT' until you either reach a total of 21 or go BUST. If you choose to STAND you'll move on to the next hand and no additional cards are dealt.
Your blackjack hands are settled from your right to your left. If your hand total is greater than the dealer's, then you'll win 1-1 on the total blackjack bet staked on that hand. If your hand is the same as the dealer's your bet will be returned to you, and if the dealer's hand total is greater than your hand total the dealer will win. At the end of the game you can choose ‘rebet' to play the game again with the same amount bet in the last game, rebet x2 to double the amount bet on the last game or start a new game with no bets in place. Good luck!
