There’s no shortage of options if you’re looking for a realistic Blackjack experience online but there’s also a growing number of games which offer a little extra also. Sidebet Blackjack is from Amaya Gaming and the title gives away the extra features somewhat so if this looks like your cup of tea, read on to find out more.
Sidebet Blackjack is essentially a standard version of the game with lots of extra sidebets; it’s played with six decks of cards and as always you must beat the dealer’s hand without exceeding 21.
How To Play Sidebet Blackjack
When you load up the game you will notice that there are five possible playing positions so you can play five hands at once. Around each position there are also five extra betting positions relating to the first two or three cards you are dealt per hand; these are explained below:
- First two cards the same suit – 2/1
- First two cards suited and K, Q (a Megamatch) – 50/1
- If you and the dealer both have a Megamatch – 5000/1
AJ Blackjack Attack
- Blackjack pays at 18/1
QQ Cash Queens
- Score 20 – 2/1
- Suited 20 – 5/1
- Score 20 with tens or higher – 10/1
- Pair of Queens – 50/1
- Pair of Queens with dealer Blackjack – 500/1
- First card 7 – 5/1
- First two cards unsuited 7s – 25/1
- First two cards suited 7s – 150/1
- First three cards unsuited 7s – 500/1
- First three cards unsuited 7s – 2000/1
88 Pair Play
- Any pair – 12/1
All of the above options will pay out regardless of whether the dealer wins the hand or not; when you’ve decided if you want to play any side bets or not the standard game will continue with the usual range of options such as splitting and doubling down.
Sidebet Blackjack offers the largest range of extra bets of any similar game we’ve played. We can’t offer any advice on strategy for the side bets because there are too many but it’s quite good fun to experiment. Unfortunately the RTP is not listed here.
