Vegas Blackjack Rules & Tips

There are no surprises that would have any impact on your fundamental strategy. The rules are as follows:

  • The dealer stands on 17.
  •  Aces may be split, but the resulting hand receives only one card. The resulting handstands.
  •  You may split once only, which is two hands maximum.
  •  Players may double on any two-card hand.
  •  Cards are dealt from a shoe of four decks, which gets shuffled consistently after each round.

How to Play Vegas Blackjack Game?

The game is a predictable variant of this gambling entertainment. To better understand the specific rules, be sure to examine the general rules of Vegas Blackjack carefully:

  1. When the hand starts, the dealer first analyzes whether players have a blackjack depending on their up card (if it is 10 or an ace). If it is an ace, then an insurance bet is offered to the players. Typically, players may make this bet for ½ cost of their initial wager. If the agent checks and finds that they have 10 underneath, then all insurance bets pays 2:1 odds.
  2. The best is a Vegas Blackjack. It is formed by starting with an ace and 10, getting an immediate 21. These hands pay out at special 3-2 odds unless the agent also has a blackjack.
  3. Scores are rank-based. Numbered cards are worth their value. All face cards are worth ten, while Aces can worth 1 or 11. The goal is to get a better hand than the dealer’s; the best possible score is 21, and the closer to it, the better.

Vegas Blackjack is dealt from a shoe that contains one or more standard decks of cards shuffled. After making a bet, each player receives two cards face up while the dealer gets one card face up and another face down. Presuming that the leading player doesn’t have a blackjack, play continues. Each player now can make a decision. There are several options available:

  • Split: This option is only available when you’re dealt two equal cards. You can split these cards into two independent hands, which then get played out as normal.
  • Double Down: This option is available when the player has two cards. Then he receives exactly one more card, after which must stand.
  •  Hit: The player receives one more card. He can choose to continue hitting or stand.
  • Stand: If the player chooses it, he ends the turn.

You play until you stand (or are forced to after doubling down) or get 22 or more points. A busted hand immediately loses.

In almost all games, the dealer hits on all hands of 16 or less and stands on all hands of 18 or more. The one area of variation comes on 17; while all games have the dealer stand on a hard 17, they may or may not hit on a soft 17.

If the dealer’s hand is bust, all players who’re still in the game win an equal amount of money. If the dealer stands, he compares hi hands to the other players’. If a player has a higher hand, he wins even money on all bets. If the dealer’s hand is higher, the player loses all bets. Whenever there is a draw, all the bets are pushed in this version of the Classic Vegas BlackJack.


  • Other than splitting, play pairs as any other hand of their value.
  •  Split pairs against low cards.
  •  Never split fours, fives or tens.
  •  Always split aces and eights.

  •  4-8: Hit.
