The objective of First Person Blackjack is to achieve a higher card count than the virtual dealer, but without exceeding 21. The best hand is Blackjack – when the sum of values of the first two dealt cards is exactly 21.

  • Played with 8 decks.
  • Cards shuffled before each game.
  • Dealer always stands on 17.
  • Double Down on any two initial cards.
  • Split initial cards of equal value.
  • Only one Split per hand.
  • Single card dealt to each Split Ace.
  • No Double Down after Split.
  • Insurance offered when dealer shows an Ace.
  • Blackjack pays 3 to 2.
  • Insurance pays 2 to 1.
  • Push game when hands tie.

Game Rules

The game is played with 8 standard 52-card decks. Card values are as follows:

  • Cards from 2 to 10 are worth their face value.
  • Face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are each worth 10.
  • Aces are worth 1 or 11, whichever is more favorable to the hand. Note that a soft hand includes an Ace worth 11.

Five hands are available. You can place your bets on one or multiple hands. After you have placed your bets, click/tap the DEAL NOW button to start the dealing. Dealing starts from the hand closest to the ‘shoe’ and continues clockwise, ending with the virtual dealer. One card is dealt face-up to each hand and the virtual dealer. Afterwards, the second card is dealt face-up to each hand and the last card is dealt face-down to the virtual dealer. The value of each initial hand is displayed next to the cards for each hand.

If the value of your initial two-card hand is exactly 21, you have Blackjack!


If the virtual dealer’s upcard is an Ace, you are given the option to purchase insurance to offset the risk that the virtual dealer has Blackjack – even when you have Blackjack yourself. The amount of insurance equals half of your main bet, and the insurance bet is settled separately from the bet on your hand. The virtual dealer’s downcard is then checked for Blackjack. If there is no Blackjack, the round continues. If the virtual dealer has Blackjack, but you don’t, the virtual dealer’s hand wins. If you both have Blackjack, the game ends in a push and your bet is returned. Note that when the virtual dealer’s upcard is a 10 or face card, you will not be given the option to purchase insurance, and the virtual dealer’s downcard will not be checked for Blackjack.

Double Down, Hit or Stand

When the virtual dealer does not have Blackjack upon checking the two initial cards, players are given the chance to improve the values of their hands in turn by choosing to have further cards dealt.

If the value of your initial hand is not 21, you can decide to Double Down. In this case, you will double your bet and be dealt only one additional card to add to your hand. Alternatively, you can decide to Hit to be dealt an additional card to add to the value of your hand. You can Hit more than once to receive additional cards before you decide to Stand once you are satisfied with the value of your hand.


If your initial hand is a pair of cards of equal value, you can decide to Split the pair to make two separate hands, each with a separate bet equal to the main bet. After a second card is dealt to both of your hands, you can improve the value of these two hands by deciding to Hit. Again, you can choose to Stand once you are satisfied with the value of your two hands. However, if you Split an initial pair of Aces, you will receive only one additional card per hand with no option to Hit.


If the sum of your hand exceeds 21, you bust and lose your bet on that hand.

When decisions have been made for all hands, the virtual dealer’s downcard is revealed. The virtual dealer must Hit on a hand of 16 or less and must Stand on a hand of soft 17 or more. (Remember that a ‘soft hand’ includes an Ace worth 11.)

You win when the value of your final hand is closer to 21 than the virtual dealer’s hand or when the dealer busts. If the hand value is the same, the game round ends in a push and your bet is returned.

Blackjack is only possible using the two cards in the initial two-card deal. A hand of 21 resulting from a split pair is not considered a Blackjack. Therefore, Blackjack beats any hand of 21 resulting from a split pair.

Side Bets

This First Person Blackjack game also includes optional side bets – Perfect Pairs and 21+3. Please note that the main bet is required to place side bets. You have the chance to win on any side bet whether you later win or lose on your main bet.

Perfect Pairs

The Perfect Pairs side bet gives you a chance to win if your first two cards comprise any pair – for example, two Queens, two Aces or two 3s. There are three types of pairs, each with a different payout:

  • Perfect Pair – same suit, g. two Aces of Spades.
  • Coloured Pair – different suits of the same colour, g. 2 of Diamonds + 2 of Hearts.
  • Mixed Pair – different suits of a different colour, g. 10 of Hearts + 10 of Clubs.


The 21+3 side bet gives you a chance to win if your first two cards plus the dealer’s up-card comprise any of the following winning combinations (similar to those in poker), each with a different payout:

  • Suited Trips – an identical triplet, g. 3 Queens of Hearts.
  • Straight Flush – in numerical sequence and same suit, g. 10, Jack and Queen of Diamonds.
  • Three of a Kind – same value but different suits, g. any 3 non-matching Kings.
  • Straight – in numerical sequence but different suits, g. 2 of Spades + 3 of Clubs + 4 of Hearts.
  • Flush – non-sequential cards in the same suit, g. 2, 6 and 10 of Clubs.


  • Blackjack pays 3:2.
  • Winning hand pays 1:1.
  • Insurance pays 2:1.
