A player tries to obtain a higher total card count than the dealer by reaching 21 or as close to 21 as possible without exceeding that count. If the player's total count exceeds 21, he has busted and must turn his cards face up at once. He has lost the bet, and the dealer immediately scoops it up. The player, at his proper turn of play and at his own discretion, may stand or draw up one or more cards in an attempt to better his count.
Click on your chips to place a bet, when you're satisfied with your bet, click DEAL. To remove a bet from the table, click CLEAR BET.
You will be dealt 2 cards to start. If you want to receive another card to bring you closer to 21, click HIT. You can continue to HIT cards until you are pleased with your total. If you are satisfied with your hand, click STAND. Remember, if you go over 21, you have busted and you lose automatically. When you are finished playing your hand, the dealer will play out his. The dealer must HIT on 16 or less and must STAND on 17 or greater. The dealer will play his hand the same regardless of the players' hand. If the dealer goes over 21, or if he cannot beat your hand, you win! If the dealer's cards match yours, you PUSH. A PUSH will return your bet.
A winning hand pays 1:1, except for BLACKJACK, which pays 3:2.
When the round is over, click NEW GAME to start another round. You can click SAME BET to begin again with the same bet, or click your chips to change the wager.
When dealt a pair, you may exercise the option to split the pair by clicking the SPLIT button at the appropriate time. Please note that splitting requires another wager equal to that on the initial hand. You may split once to a maximum of two hands, but please note that when splitting Aces each new hand will receive only one more card. Also, natural 21's occurring on these split hands are not considered Blackjack.
If you feel really strongly about your hand and want to get some more scratch out of the dealer, try to Double Down. When you do this, you will double your bet, but only receive one more card. Take advantage of this wager by clicking the DOUBLE button at the appropriate time.
If the dealer is showing an Ace as his face up card, then you'll be asked if you wish to buy Insurance. If you believe the down card will give the Dealer Blackjack, accept the wager by clicking YES when asked if you'd like it. Insurance will cost you half of your original bet, and will pay at 2:1 if the dealer has Blackjack.
The cards have the following value:
After the game has loaded you may modify the credit value you wish to play with by clicking on the OPTIONS button located on the top right of the screen. Select the – and + buttons in the BET field to decrease or increase your bet denominations.
When you have placed your bet, push SPIN to spin the reels and hit your payout. The slot machine will automatically BET MAX on the machine at 9 Lines in play and 5 coins per Line.
Clicking the PAYS button presents the pay table for the game at hand. This display indicates the payout amounts for each winning symbol combination and also explains any unique symbols or rules for the game. All line pay amounts indicated on the pay table are multiplied by the number of credits bet on each line and the coin denomination.
Some games have special symbols that count as WILD. When a wild symbol is present on an active pay line, it will substitute for any other symbol (except scatter or bonus symbols) to form a winning combination.
Some games have special symbols that win no matter where they are located on the reels. These symbols are called SCATTER symbols. These symbols pay out based on the number of symbols showing on the reels.
Some games have special symbols that activate a bonus round. These symbols are called BONUS symbols. These symbols pay out based on the play within the secondary bonus game.
Video Slots can contain bonus rounds that can be played by receiving certain combinations of symbols on the reels.
You can play the Microphone bonus round by getting at least three JM bonus symbols on any valid pay line.
You will be presented with a choice of up to five microphones to select from. Each microphone is a different weight, so choose carefully! You will be awarded between 5 and 40 times your wagered amount in the round.
