Free Bet Blackjack is based on the most popular classic version of blackjack played in land-based casinos, but introduces a few novel rule tweaks by adding automatic Free Bets on selected Double Down and Split bets.
Free Bet Blackjack follows the traditional rules, yet it differs from other versions thanks to Free Bets on selected Double Down and Split bets. You get Free Double Down Bets if your first 2-card hand is 9, 10, or 11. Added to that are Free Split Bets on all pairs, except when you have two 10s. The Free Bets are automatically offered to you whenever your hand qualifies. This means that the system without fail makes a Split to increase your chances of winning, and there’s no effort required from you.
The game includes 4 optional side bets: Any Pair (pays if your first 2 cards are a pair), 21+3 (pays if first 3 cards for a Flush, Straight or 3-of-a-kind), Hot 3 (pays if your first 2 cards and dealer’s upward total 19-21), and Bust It (pays if the dealer busts). The Bust It side bet pays out increasing amounts if the dealer busts with a 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8-card hand.
