How to Play
There are 2 ways to bet with Blackjack +3. You can place a normal Blackjack bet within the central betting area and to the right of that is a +3 betting space where you can bet against the pay table as printed above it. You can bet up to £100 in the +3 side betting area, or bet a total of £500 in both. Chips are valued at £1, £5, £25, £100 and £500 to manage smaller bets.

How to Win with the +3 Paytable
Your first chance to win comes as soon as you and the dealer receive your cards. You're dealt 2 cards face up and the dealer receives one. Imagine those 3 upcards are a hand and then compare to the pay table below to find out if you've won. Qualifying hands are defined as follows:

+3 Variable Paytable
Straight Flush 100:1
3 of a Kind 33:1
Straight 10:1
Flush 5:1

Once you've received any winnings from the +3 Paytable, you'll go on to play Blackjack just as normal. Prior to dealing, you can click Change Side Bet button to play on the fixed rate paytable, which pays all the above mentioned hands at 10:1.

How to Win Blackjack
The winning hand in blackjack is the hand that totals closest to 21 or any other hand when the dealer's hand bust. You can make 21 up from any number of cards, though a picture card and an ace - known as Blackjack - will beat other combinations. Picture cards count as 10, numbered cards count as they appear and Aces could be 1 or 11, depending on what benefits you hand. If your cards have the same value as the dealer's you'll receive your bet back, unless one hand contains an ace and a picture card, in which case it wins.

If you receive 2 cards of the same value you can Split your hand. This means one pair is divided into 2 separate hands. When splitting you must place the same wagers on both hands and then play each card as though it were a hand. You can't split a picture card and a 10, though they have the same value. If you split a pair of aces and then draw a picture card, it's not counted as Blackjack.

Doubling Down
You can double your original bet, after you've looked at your first 2 cards. After doubling, you may draw only one more card. You can only Double Down if the value of your initial two cards is 9, 10 or 11 - and doesn't include an Ace. If you opt to double and win you'll be paid out an amount double your original bet. If the dealer gets Blackjack after you've split or doubled, all your bets, both original and double or split amounts, are lost.

If the dealer's first card is an Ace, you can safeguard your hand against the possibility that the dealer has Blackjack, by opting for insurance. The insurance bet costs half your original bet but if the dealer does have Blackjack, your insurance will pay out at 2:1 though you will lose your original wager. If the dealer doesn't have Blackjack, you'll lose the insurance bet though you can continue the play based on your original bet. Insurance only covers your original wager; it does not cover any "Double Down" bet.
