Play Live Blackjack at PokerStars Casino
Blackjack is a casino favorite - an easy-to-learn card game where intuition and strategy can help a skilled player turn a profit from the turn of a card. With Live Blackjack at PokerStars Casino, you can sit opposite a real dealer and enjoy the fun and excitement of casino gaming from the comfort of home.
Live Blackjack - Basic Rules
Our Live Blackjack tables feature real dealers in real time, dealing up to seven boxes per table. Eight 52-card decks are used, together in a shoe, and are reshuffled periodically (as opposed to our regular Blackjack tables, where cards are reshuffled after every hand).
If you hit blackjack with your first two cards, you will be paid out at odds of 3:2, and ‘Insurance’ bets (available if a dealer shows an ace as an upcard) pay 2:1 if the dealer has blackjack. You can double down on any two-card hand, and split pairs once for two hands in total. Split aces receive only one card on each hand.
Additional bets are also available, including the option to ‘bet behind’ any seat on the table - either while you are waiting for an open seat, or if you just want more action. You can also make optional side bets, including Perfect Pairs™ and 21+3™ wagers.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) for Live Blackjack is 99.28%.
The RTP for Perfect Pairs™ is 95.90%.
The RTP for 21+3™ is 96.30%.
