Blackjack is such a simple game, yet it’s so addictive and well-known that almost every casino-goer knows how to play it. This version brings something new to the table though (pardon the pun) because you can also place side bets on the likelihood that your first two cards will be a pair.
How to Play Perfect Pairs Blackjack
There are 5 chairs at the table and you can use as many as you like. To play a hand, and take a virtual set, you must select a bet from the chip stack and place it on your chosen hand. You can use the same process to place the side bet by clicking on the ‘perfect pairs’ section above each hand.
The dealer begins issuing cards when the ‘deal’ button has been pressed. Two cards will be dealt to each active hand before the dealer takes two cards. At this stage you will receive winnings if your side bet is placed on a pair of cards. After this you will continue to play Blackjack in the usual way.
One of the dealers cards remains face down whilst you decide whether to hit or stand, all the time remembering the goal to gain 21 or be as close to it without going over (going bust). If you are closer than the dealer you win, a natural blackjack also achieves a win but you lose if the dealer is closer to 21 or you go bust.
