Play Free Bet Blackjack
Play Free Bet Blackjack to experience live online blackjack with free selected Double Down and Split bets.
Free Bet Blackjack is a live table game played opposite a professional croupier in real-time, streamed straight to your mobile device or PC for that immersive real casino feel whenever you want to play.
You can chat to other players from around the world who are also virtually sat at the table, but when you play, you’ll only compete against the dealer.
The objective of Free Bet Blackjack is the same as any other standard blackjack table, to achieve a higher card count than the dealer without going over 21.
Read on to find out more about how Free Bet Blackjack works.
How to Play: Free Bet Blackjack
Free Bet Blackjack is a fast-paced game played with eight 52-card decks. Instructions are shown on screen to indicate if you have to wait for the next game, or if betting is open. Once betting has opened, you’ll see a countdown begin.
Once Free Bet Blackjack betting has closed, the dealer will deal the cards: two to the player (both face up) and two to the dealer (one face up and one face down).
If the dealer doesn’t have blackjack after checking their initial cards, the player is given the chance to add another card to their hand.
If the value of your Free Bet Blackjack hand is not 21, one of your options is to Double Down. This means your bet will be doubled and only one additional card will be dealt to your hand.
If the sum of your hand is 9, 10 or 11 you get a Free Double. This means you can choose to Double Down for free – a Free Bet will be added to your original bet, but you’ll only be allowed to take one additional card.
If you win the round, the Free Bet (matched to your original bet) will be paid accordingly, plus your own bet.
If you lose, you lose only your original bet. And if the round is tied, only your original bet will be returned.
If your original Free Bet Blackjack hand is a pair of cards of equal value, you could split the pair to make two separate hands, each with a separate bet. You’ll be offered a Free Split bet, unless you have a pair of 10s, jacks, queens or kings.
If you accept the Free Split, your original bet will be placed for your first hand on the right side of the table. And the Free Bet will be placed for your second hand on the left side of the table.
You will play out both hands individually. If you win on the Free Bet hand, then you will be paid out to the value of your original bet. If you win on your main bet hand, you will be paid for that too.
If you lose on your hand with the Free Bet, you do not lose anything. If you lose on your main bet hand, you lose your bet.
The free bet will not be returned if the game ends in a tie.
Dealer Busts with 22
You cannot win in this game if the dealer gets 22 – unless you get blackjack (ace and a 10 or face card).
If the player has 21 or less and the dealer busts with 22, then the player's wager is a push, and returned to you.
