Infinite Blackjack

Infinite Blackjack is a table where there are an unlimited number of seats. Cards are drawn first person and plays out how a blackjack game would in a casino. You can stand at any time, or you can use the on screen display to hit. 

What makes Infinite Blackjack unique is the sidebets they make available to you:

Hot 3: This is a blackjack side bet akin to the Lucky Lucky, focusing on the player's first two cards and the dealer's up card to determine wins for point totals ranging from 19 to 21. If the total of the three cards is between 19 and 21, you win. The pay table for the Hot 3 side bet operates on a "one to one" basis.

21+3: This side bet in blackjack is an exciting addition to the traditional game, offering players a chance to win big based on a combination of their initial two cards and the dealer's up card. It merges the thrill of poker with the classic appeal of blackjack, as players aim to form poker hands like flushes, straights, and three of a kind from the three cards. Whether it's hitting a suited three of a kind or a straight flush, the 21+3 side bet adds an extra layer of anticipation and strategy to the game, enticing players with the possibility of substantial payouts for successful combinations.

Any Pair: This is a bet you place on your first two cards being a pair. If the two cards are the same number or face, you win.

Bust It: The side bet is placed prior to the commencement of the hand. If the dealer busts on three cards, you secure a win in accordance with the paytable. However, if the dealer doesn't bust on three cards, you lose.

Live Blackjack

When you click on Live Blackjack, you’ll be taken through to a lobby with a wide variety of tables available. This variety is there because each table has a limited number of seats, so you’ll have to find one with a seat available. Tables are segmented by the minimum bet available on that table. All you need to do is decide on your betting range and click on a table that has an open seat.

There are also side bets that you can bet on, like 21+3 and Any Pair (as described above) but there is also the Bet Behind option. This is where you place your bet on a player rather than your own hand. If you bet behind a player and they win, you win, if they lose, you lose. The amount won or lost is dependent on how much you bet on them, not how much they bet.

This is a great place to start because of the wide variety of options and the minimum bet of just R10.

Blackjack Party

Blackjack Party is all about having a good time whilst you bet. You’ll find a standard game of blackjack here presented by a dealer and a gracious host. The added 21+3 and Any Pair sidebets are included. 

A lot of emphasis is placed on the Bet Behind sidebet. Blackjack Party encourages as many people as possible to join the party and bet behind players whilst they wait for a seat to open up. This super social way of playing blackjack is some of the most fun you can have at an online blackjack table.
