Standard Side Bet Features

In order to play blackjack online, there are some terminologies you will need to understand, such as Splitting, Double Down and Insurance. Find out more:



  • Two cards with the same value can be split into two hands.
  • The same bet will be placed on the second hand, as with the bet on the first hand.
  • A pair of Aces that’s split with a second card valued at 10, is 21 and not Blackjack – the same applies for a card valued at 10 that’s split and a second card is an Ace.
  • Splitting can be done only once per game.


Double Down

  • If the player’s first two cards have a value of 9, 10 or 11, the Double Down bet is possible.
  • This bet is equal to the original bet.
  • Only one card will be dealt to the player thereafter and the hand will automatically Stand.
  • The Double Down bet is not available after a Split bet.



  • Most online blackjack games in Canada offer an Insurance bet.
  • If the dealer’s first card is an Ace, this bet can be placed.
  • The bet is half of the player’s original bet amount.
  • Should the dealer not get Blackjack with the second card, the Insurance bet is lost and removed.
  • Should the dealer get Blackjack with the second card, the Insurance bet pays 2:1.

How To Play

Each online blackjack game is different, as some offer extra side bets, while others may not offer certain bets. However, the way to play blackjack, and the aim of the game, is the same for all online blackjack games in Canada.


As mentioned previously, the point is to get closer to 21 than the dealer, without going over (Bust) – this means that the cards dealt to the player exceed 21. All cards have the same denomination as its value, for example a two is valued 2, a three is valued 3, etc. Face cards (J, Q and K), including ten, are valued at 10, while an Ace can be valued at either 1 or 11, depending on the second hand that the player is dealt.
