This is classic 8-deck Blackjack excitement with all of the popular bets and side bets. Pit your skills against the live dealer and hit, stand, split, or double your bets to get as close to 21 as possible.
Lightning Blackjack isn’t just another Blackjack game as it has one shocking addition- the Lightning Multipliers. During every hand played, special multipliers are applied to all potential winning hands meaning you can see your win getting a surge of multiplier power of up to 15x for any standard winning hand. That’s not all as, for any Blackjack hand value, the multiplier is increased even further to up to 25x your current bet on any given round.
How to play Lightning Blackjack
The goal of Lightning Blackjack is to have a hand value as close to 21 without going over. Here’s how the game works:
- Choose your chip size and press bet in the designated betting period
- The dealer will draw 2 cards for the player and themselves
- Choose whether to stand, hit, double, or split (if you have pairs)
- The dealer will now carry out the player hand actions and do the same for their hand
- The side closest to 21 without going over wins the round and winnings are paid based on the bet ratio of the hand
- Going over 21 will bust the hand and the round will end immediately with the other side instantly winning
Lightning Multipliers- On every round, if your last hand was a winner, then the next round will contain an extra Lightning multiplier with the value depending on the win. Each potential winning hand of 4-17, 18, 19, 20, or Blackjack, will contain an individual multiplier that will be applied to your win on the next round. Win again with the applied multiplier and you will win yourself a supercharged return on your initial bet.
Double- After the two cards are handed out, you have the option to double your current bet level which will add an additional 100% to your current hand bet. The game plays as normal and winning multipliers are applied to the new doubled bet value if the hand is a winner.
Split- You can split your 2-card hand into 2 separate hands with each card being the initial value. A second card is added to both hands and they are immediately pitted against the hand of the dealer. Doing this will add an additional 100% to your bet and treat the two hands as separate bets. Multipliers are applied to both hands individually if they win.
