InterCasino Blackjack is played and programmed according to Atlantic City Blackjack rules.
Authority: New Jersey Casino Control Commission.
Rule Exceptions: The deck of cards is shuffled after each hand, and pair may not be re-split. Players may not draw any additional cards on split aces.
In MultiSplit Blackjack, the player and the dealer are dealt two cards to begin. The objective of blackjack is to accumulate cards that add up closer to 21 than the dealer's cards, without going over 21. Cards are worth their face value except face cards that are worth ten and aces that are worth either 1 or 11. If the value of the players hand is closer to 21 than the dealers the player wins. If the dealer's value is higher than the players, the player will lose. If the hands are of equal value then the deal is a push and the money is returned to the player. If the player has 22 or higher (known as a busted hand), the player loses regardless of whether the dealer also busts.
InterCasino Multi-Split Blackjack is played with 8 decks of fifty-two cards. Immediately after each game has been played the used cards are then shuffled back into the deck. All face cards are valued as 10, and cards from 2-10 are valued by their number. Aces can be valued at either 1 or 11, which does not need to specified as it is assumed that it will be valued to the card that will give the best hand.
Your chips are first stacked by denomination ($/£/€ 1, $/£/€ 5, $/£/€ 25, $/£/€ 100, $/£/€ 500) at the bottom of the gaming window. The player then selects the amount they want to wager on a given hand by clicking on the chip of the denomination they would like to use.
The player then places their bet on the Baccarat table by clicking on one of the bet fields. The player can also specify a bet that is not equal to an existing chip denomination by clicking on a different chip denomination after placing the last chip on the table. For example, placing a $/£/€ 25 chip and then a $/£/€ 5 chip would make the total of the bet $/£/€ 30.
The player is also able to withdraw their entire wager simply by clicking on the right mouse button. The total of the bet being played will appear in the "Bet" section just below "User". The player may repeat their last bet by clicking on the shortcuts that are summarized below. If the player places a wager that is below the table bet limit, the bet will automatically be put to the minimum bet limit.
After the player has placed their bet they will then receive two cards face up. The dealer will also receive two cards - one facing upwards and one down. Once the player has been dealt their cards (and based on the nature of the cards) they may do the following by clicking on the appropriate button:
|Winning Hand||1 to 1|
|Blackjack||3 to 2|
|Insurance||2 to 1|
$/£/€ 2 minimum initial ante
$/£/€ 2,500 maximum bet.
Individual tables may have different higher and lower bet limits. There are two ways to determine the table bet limit for a specific table - by placing the mouse over the specific table which will give a box stating the table number and minimum and maximum bet. Or, the player may click on a specific table and a new window will open displaying this information.
You are also able to set your table limit to below the maximum specified limit by selecting Bet Options on the Game Menu. The Modify Table Bet Limit will then appear, and to reduce the maximum type in the new limit in the appropriate box. Then click OK to complete this update. Please be aware that you can only modify your table bet limit once a week (Friday 12:00 AM EST), and using the Modify Table Bet Limit affects the limit for ALL games and not just your current one.
Basic blackjack strategy is defined as the proper play of cards knowing only your hand and the dealer's exposed card. It does not involve card counting (an advantage lost in playing InterCasino with 8 decks reshuffled after each hand) or remembering which cards were played previously. The basic blackjack strategy is created through intensive computer simulations which perform a complete combinatorial analysis. In this method, the computer "plays" tens of thousands of hands for each Blackjack situation possible and statistically decides which decision best favours the player.
Basic strategy is usually printed as tables with the dealer's up card the first row and your two card combination the first column. The other entries in the table tell you what to do (Stand, Hit, Double-Down, Split) with the different combinations of dealer and player's hands. Basic blackjack strategy tables for InterCasino rules (8 decks, dealer stands on 17, double-down on any two cards, double after split allowed, no re-splitting of cards allowed, no surrender) are shown below for hard totals, soft totals, and pairs along with a legend.
|0||Repeat last bet|
|1||Pass, Refuse Insurance|
|Up Arrow||Increase bet by $/£/€ 1|
|Down Arrow||Decrease bet by $/£/€ 1|
|"Shift + Up Arrow"||Increase bet by $/£/€ 10|
|"Shift + Down Arrow"||Decrease bet by $/£/€ 10|
