It’s time to don your tuxedo, mix yourself a martini-based cocktail and and then quickly check your balance to make sure you have enough cash in hand to play this VIP version of the ultimate casino game. It’s called Blackjack VIP and it’s developed by Net Entertainment to complement similar versions such as Blackjack Single Deck.
This is definitely one for the high rollers out there with a minimum stake per hand of £50 up to a maximum of £2500. You can play up to three hands per deal which obviously means a betting range of £150 to £7500.
How To Play Blackjack VIP
Blackjack players will be familiar with the format here, especially those with the deep pockets, but we’ll run through the rules briefly for the uninitiated.
The aim is to make a hand of 21 or lower which also beats the dealer; the dealer must stand on 17 and draw at 16 or lower.
Play begins with the dealer distributing two cards to each position on which you are betting and himself – one of the dealer’s cards will be face up. Each hand now has the following choice to make depending on the running total of the cards:
- Hit – take another card
- Stand – stick with what you’ve got
- Double – double your stake and receive one more card but only if your cards total 10 or 11 Split – split the cards if they have the same value and play both as individual hands
- Buy Insurance – if the dealer has an A you will be offered insurance against a potential blackjack; it costs half your bet value and will pay 2/1 if a blackjack is revealed
Once this stage is compete the dealer reveals his hand and plays it out according to the dealer’s rules. If he busts (exceeds 21) or fails to reach your total then you are a winner.
A standard win will pay at evens and a Blackjack (Ace plus 10) pays at 3/2.
Double Jack Side Bet
You may have noticed that little ‘J’ sign next to the hand positions; after you have placed your first bet you can now place a wager here in the hope that the following will happen:
- Two Jacks of Spades – 100x bet
- Pair Of Jacks – 25x bet
- First Card Is A Jack – 10x bet
This is another version of Net Entertainment’s standard Blackjack software and very good it is too but beware – it’s for high rollers only. Use our strategy guide to ensure you get the best RTP of 99.53%.
