he Beginners Guide to Playing Blackjack
At Euro Palace Casino New Zealand our online Blackjack can be played with as many as 8 decks of cards. After you have placed your bet and received your cards you will notice that one of the dealer cards is face down, this is known as the hole card.
If the hole card is an Ace, you will be given the opportunity to place an insurance bet. The insurance bet is a side bet, which pays out at 2:1 if the hole card is a ten, in other words the dealer has Blackjack. This bet is completely separate to your primary bet and the one does not affect the other.
If the dealer’s hand is valued at 21, all other bets except the insurance bet are lost, unless you too have 21. When this happens, it is called a push and your original wager is returned to you.
If the dealer does not go bust, then whichever hand is closest to 21 wins.
