While free credit 50 make 600 withdraw 300 playing Blackjack you want to reach a higher score than the dealer. You need to do this without going over 21. The most famous and best hand is a ‘’Blackjack’’. You hit a ‘’Blackjack’’ when you get dealt exactly 21 with your first two cards. This can be achieved by hitting one Ace and a 10 or Face Card, which are worth 10 points. When you hit 21 in multiple cards it will be just a 21, not a Blackjack. A Blackjack pays 3:2 at LeoVegas. When the dealers gets bust or has a low score than you will double your money. When you score the same as the dealer you will get your regular bet back (Push). During most of the games the dealer must stand on 17 and must draw to 16. Below we will explain some special rules which you need to know;
You can accept insurance when the dealers has an Ace. Insurance pays 2 to 1.
An Ace is worth 1 or 11 during Blackjack.
When you ‘’Hit’’ you will receive another card. When you ‘’Stand’’ you can get any more card to increase your amount of points.
You can split your cards when you hit two cards of the same value. In this case your bet will be double and you can play the hands separately. This options can be very interesting.
You can double down in order to double your bet after the dealer has dealt. When you choose this option you can only buy 1 card. This can by interesting when you get dealt a total between 9 and 11.

Placing side bets
While playing Live Blackjack at LeoVegas you can also decide to place side bets. With your side bets you can bet on a perfect pair of 21+3. You can combine your side bets with a regular Blackjack bet. All side bets stay active, it doesn’t matter if you win or lose. At LeoVegas you can place side bets from as low a €1,-. The side bets work like this;
With the Perfect Pairs side bet you can win money when you hit two of the same cards during your first two cards. It works like this;
Perfect Pair; Hit the same card from the same suit. For example; Two Queens of Hearts.
Coloured Pair; Hit the same card with the same colour. For example; One Ace of Hearts and one Ace of Diamonds.
Mixed Pair; Hit the same card from different colours. For example; a Jack or Hearts and a Jack or Clubs.
Depending on which pair you land you will receive a fairly high return. A Perfect Pair pays 25:1 and a Coloured Pair paus 12:1. When you hit a Mixed Pair you will receive 6:1.
21+3 Side Bet
With the 21+3 side bet you can win money by making a winning combination with your first two cards and the first card of the dealer. It is fairly hard to win with this side bet but the returns are pretty high. Hit one of the following combinations to win money;
Suited Trips; Hit three of the same cards of the same suits. For example; 3 Aces of Hearts. Pays 100 to 1.
Straight Flush; Hit three connecting numbers from the same suit. For example; 4,5 and 5 of Hearts. Pay 40 to 1.
Three of a Kind; Hit three cards of the same value but with different suits. For example; Three Jack (Clubs, Hearts and Diamonds). Pays 30 to 1.
Straight; Cards in a numerical sequence. For example; 2,3 and 4 of different suits. Pays 10 to 1.
Flush; Three card of the same suit. Pays 5 to 1.
Althoug some of these combinations are very hard to hit the rewards can be very interesting. Personally I don’t play a lot of side bets but I know people who had a lot of success with them. Just try it sometimes and see if you like it. Good luck with your side bets!
My personal Blackjack tips;
If you like to start playing Live Blackjack at LeoVegas I have some tips for you. Maybe you don’t need them or already know them, in this case you can skip them. If you are not a experienced players yet they might be useful. While playing I use to stick to these rules and tips;
Statistically it is not in your favour to take an insurance when the dealer hits an Ace.
When you get two tens or faces it is best top stand. Splitting two tens is not the best options. Never split two 5’s.
If you get two Aces, always split and double your bet.
Double down when you hit 10 or 11. It gives you a 21 when hitting an Ace or Face.
Never stand below 12. Always take another card.
Stand in most case of a hard 17 of more.
Never get emotional, stick to your game plan.
