Standard And Strategy Side Bets

With so many online casino blackjack games available in New Zealand, it’s important to note that each one is unique. And understanding the various bets that are available on the game you’re playing will allow you to apply the best online blackjack strategy. Here’s what’s available on Real™ Blackjack with James.


Double Down

  • Players can select Double Down on any 2 initial cards.
  • This option is provided if the hand is incomplete and was not derived from a split.
  • Should you choose to Double Down, an extra card will be dealt and your hand will stand.
  • You can only Double Down once per round.
  • When Double Down is selected, your initial bet amount is doubled.


Split Hands

  • Any 2 initial cards that have the same value, can be Split.
  • But note, you’re only able to Split once per round.
  • When you select the Split option, your initial hand will be split into 2 hands.
  • These 2 Split hands will be played separately.
  • Should you Split a hand with 2 Aces, only 1 extra card is dealt per hand, thereafter it stands.
  • The bet amount for each of the Split hands will be the same as the initial bet.
  • As such, your initial bet size doubles when you select to Split.



  • Players have the option to take Insurance against the dealer getting blackjack (if their first card is an Ace).
  • This option is only available once per round, after the initial dealing of cards.
  • The Insurance will cost you half of your regular bet amount.
  • If the dealer gets blackjack, your Insurance bet will win.
