Perfect Pairs™ – Blackjack
Perfect Pairs™ is a newest casino table game available in the download software. Perfect Pairs™ is based on a standard Blackjack game, played with 6 52-card decks in which players play against the dealer. As an added feature, players have the opportunity to win bonus money based on their hand by placing a Perfect Pairs Bet.
In Perfect Pairs™, you are dealt two cards face up and the dealer is dealt two cards, one face down and one face up. The goal of Perfect Pairs™ is to get closer to 21 points than the dealer without going over 21 points. The cards are dealt two in rotation from the dealer’s left to right.
In addition, each position is marked with a Betting Box location where a player can make an optional Perfect Pairs Bet. The objective of the Perfect Pairs Bet is to achieve a pair from the first two cards dealt.
If a player chooses to make a Perfect Pairs™ Bet, he or she must do so at the time of making the initial wager and before the dealer deals any cards. A winning Perfect Pairs hand is not affected by the dealer’s hand.
A "Blackjack" is a hand that totals 21 points with two cards. Blackjack automatically wins, unless both you and the dealer receive Blackjack, then you push. A total of 21 points with three or more cards is not considered Blackjack.
|2 through 10||Face Value|
|Face Cards||10 Points|
|Aces||1 point or 11 points, whichever makes a better hand|
|Example: 6 + Ace = 7 points or 17 points|
