Blackjack at William Hill
There are a variety of ways to play Blackjack at William Hill Casino and these are:
- Perfect Blackjack
- Blackjack UK
- Live Blackjack
- Blackjack Switch
- Blackjack Surrender
- Progressive Blackjack
The aim of Blackjack is to make a hand as close to 21 as possible without going over. Number cards are worth their face value, with the exception of an Ace which can count as either 1 or 11. Picture cards are worth 10.
After being dealt two cards at the outset, the player can choose to hit (receive another card), stand, double down or split (when dealt a pair). A Blackjack is made with an Ace and any 10-value card, and pays out at odds of 3 to 2. All other winning hands are paid out at odds of even money. In the case of a tied hand (when you have the same total as the dealer) a “Push” is declared and your bet is refunded.
Regular Blackjack games at William Hill Casino use an eight deck shoe and do not allow multi-handed play (though there is a multi-hand version of the game available for those who want this). The dealer must stand on all hands totalling 17 or better (including soft hands) and Insurance is available when the dealer’s up card is an Ace. Splitting is only possible on the first pair here, but you can split Aces, which is some consolation. There is no surrender option at the William Hill Casino.
When playing to correct strategy, these rules potentially enable you to reduce the house edge to around 0.485%. Progressive Blackjack games are played to the same rules, but also allow the player to place bonus bets that pay out if you are dealt a Blackjack.
