• Blackjack at the Alea Casino Nottingham


Simple to learn, thrilling to play

The essence of Blackjack is to get your hand nearer to a total of 21 than the dealer’s.

  • Ask for additional cards verbally, or use hand signals to indicate if you require further cards or not. The signals most often used are:  
    • Hit - requiring an extra card: Tap the table
    • Stand - no more cards required: Wave your hand, palm open and parallel to the table
    • Double/Split: Place your matching bet next to, never on top of, your original bet and inform the Dealer if you are doubling or splitting.
  • Split their cards (if a Player has two of the same number or picture), placing another wager equal to their original bet thus forming two hands
  • A Blackjack is with the Players’ or Dealers’ first two cards only, if after splitting your hands you have an Ace and a 10-value card this is 21 and not a Blackjack
  • Double their original stake ( receiving only one further card) on their first two-card total (with the exception of a Blackjack) placing another wager that is equal to or less (as long as it is above the table minimum)
  • The Dealer must draw on 16 or under and must stand on 17 or over.
  • If the Player wins with a higher value than the Dealer without going over 21 they are paid even money (1 – 1).
  • The highest value is an Ace and any 10-point card with the Player’s first two cards only. This is called Blackjack and is paid at 3 to 2.
  • If both Player and Dealer have a Blackjack the bet is returned to you.
  • - If both Player and Dealer have the same value, the bet is returned to you.
  • Perfect Pairs - this wager is that the Player’s first two cards are a Mixed Pair, Coloured Pair or a Perfect Pair (two identical cards)
  • 21 + 3 - this wager is that the Player’s first two cards combined with the Dealer’s first card forms a Three Card Poker hand of a Flush or better
  • TOP 3 - this wager is that the Player’s first two cards combined with the Dealer’s first card forms a Three Card Poker hand of a Three of a Kind or better
  • Blackjack Bonus Jackpot - A £1 side-bet with a chance to land thousands with Three of a Kind Suited Aces.
  • If you wish to play the side bet(s) at the table you must have a Blackjack wager as well.
