- Should the dealer get Blackjack, the bet will pay out at odds of 2 to 1.
- Should the dealer not get Blackjack, you will lose the Insurance bet, but the regular game will continue.
- A Double Down means that you are doubling your original bet on a hand.
- Unlike other games, this online blackjack version, allows you to Double Down on any 2 cards.
- Only one extra card is dealt once this bet has been placed.
- You can place a Double Down bet after splitting a hand.
- You can split your hand into two hands when your first two cards have the same value.
- In this version, you can also split two cards of 10-value (e.g. K and Q, J and 10, etc.)
- As you are playing with an extra hand, a bet equal to your original bet will apply to the second hand.
The standard payouts will apply when playing Premier Blackjack with Buster Blackjack™, however there is a Buster Blackjack™ side bet that can also be placed per hand, with various different options and payouts.
The regular payouts are as follows:
- Standard win pays 1 to 1.
- Blackjack pays 3 to 2.
